After last month’s giant thrift haul, this month’s feels positively tiny. However, let’s call it ‘small but mighty’… because I still found some fabulous items to add to our home.
Stoneware pitcher, $8.49
I’m not sure if this is vintage stoneware or something new and handmade, but I love it! I picked it up at our local thrift store and put it down a few times before just committing to the fact that it needs to live in my house.
This pretty little pitcher now lives on my den bookcase with some other fabulous vases and pieces of pottery that I’ve collected over the years.
Fenton Glass Hobnail mini vase, $8
While out and about at a fun vintage/consignment shop with my friend, I found this Fenton colonial green vase from the 1960’s. I don’t have any other similar vases, so I figured I’d add this one to my collection. It certainly fits in with the rest of my mid century modern pottery and ceramics that I’ve been accidentally collecting.
Frye Deborah Deco studded short boots, $50
These are the FIND of the month! I came across these Frye boots at a little consignment store that my friend and I love, and they were tucked around a corner of a bookcase totally out of sight. They’re an 8 and I typically wear an 8.5 or even a 9 in some boots, so I slipped them on and wore them around while shopping the rest of the store. They were comfortable enough, so I made the call and spent $50 on them. When I got home and did my research, I found that they are the Frye Deborah Deco short boots and they sold for $598!
Once I put on a pair of socks with them, they were a *little* tight on the top of my left foot. So, I tried a freezer hack I saw online:
And now they fit great! I can’t wait to pair them with some of my dresses and skirts this fall. I’m hoping that as I wear them time and time again, they mold more to the shape of my feet and they get even more comfortable.
