Thrift Score Thursday Features

thrift score thursday12

Hello and welcome to Thursday at A Designer At Home! This week has been hectic and so I won’t be sharing a find of my own today, but I do still want to share awesome treasures from the feed with you because that’s the best part anyways.

This week we have a guest host! She’s such a lovely gal, so make sure you take a moment to visit and get to know her!


As a collector of glass finds myself, I really enjoyed this beautiful and interesting collection. The tall decanter could live in my home any day. Which piece do you like?

Oh, what fun it is to walk the glass aisles of the local thrift shops. Though often it is the unusual and obscure forms that catch my eye, I am also attracted to anything that cries out MCM. However, I usually pass over them, noting the form or the color but I let it be unless there's something else like a European indication or known designer mark and then I bring it home for inclusion in my little collection of 'smalls'. Usually priced in the .99 to $2 range there is some instant gratification walking out with something in my hand even if it's not the $10 Poul Jensen z-chair I dream about ??? . . . . . . . #thrifted #thriftstore #vintage #livingroom #apartmenttherapy #finditstyleit #design #interiors #interiordesign #art #industrialdesign #beautifulthings #cool #furniture #living #midcentury #homedesign #homedecor #Midcenturymodern #furnishings #lifestyle #midcenturyhome #midcenturyfurniture #midcenturydesign #mcm #midcenturymodernfurniture #thrifty #thriftfinds #thriftlife#thriftscorethursday

And then there’s this brass unicorn head. A freaking brass unicorn head. I thought I’d never see one! And it’s so cute, too with the other decor.

And with the weather warming up and a lot of sitting happening outside, wouldn’t it be so nice to have these cool chairs to sit in? Easily the coolest outdoor chairs ever.

From one of my favorite accounts come this gorgeous collection. She turns epic thrift scores into art with every shot!

+? Three Ring Circus ?+ Have you ever tried to wrangle a ?, ?, & an ??!? Well I'm here to tell you that it's no par-tea!!! ???And the other oddly shaped circus clowns didn't help either! ???? I sweated & spit way more than that camel did! ?? He gave me the hardest time! ?? But it's to-tea-lly fine! After all of the toil, changing sunlight, & non-cooperation due to the various shapes (particularly the non-uniform or round ones), I figure I'd still share my collection of tea & coffee pots for the fun hashie #magpiemonday. ??? The super hostesses: @quince_cottage, @hoodcreeklogcabin, @beesnburlap, & @junk.beaucoup always have the nicest things to say! And of course we all enjoy grabbing our ?& looking through the beautiful & interesting things people love to collect! ✨? I have to tell ya, I was about ready to grab a beverage of another sort by the time this was all said & done-and it was neither tea nor coffee! ???So what about you? What do you love to corral & showcase under your tent??? ??✨ . . . #collected #collection #gather #gatheringslikethese #foundandforaged #dscollections #teapot #coffeepot #tray #brasstray #pursuepretty #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #mystyle #globaldecor #globalchic #globalhome #globalstyle #finditstyleit #dslooking #flatlay #flatlaythenation #flatlayoftheday #fromabove #faffing #knolling #onthetable #thriftedstyle #thriftscorethursday

Places for Flowers that aren’t tabletop? I’m in! Love hanging and wall mounted flower vases.

I love these panned out shots of lots of thrifted goodies. I love seeing how everyone uses the cool pieces they find.

And my cohosts were busy, too! I just adore this rattan rocking horse Maggie found. My son would love this thing! I must keep an eye out for one for myself.

And Cassie shared a beautifully boho blanket yard saling. I can’t wait to see how she uses it. She’s basically blanket styling Queen.

Thanks for stopping by today! Don’t forget to visit my co hosts and the features IGers and tag your finds so we can see!
