March Thrifted Finds

The end of a month that had a bit of spring. Coastal BC has rain (lots), pink cherry blossoms and laburnum as well as crocus, daffodils and snowdrops. A lot of moss and soggy grass too. My three blueberry bushes are six years old and survived the winter and have bud swellings.
Garage sales - a few, thrift store, got some stuff.  The Cuban Cigar Maker was my must unusual find in March.  At first glance I thought it was a toy chair and table and a puppet. 
So glad I found some blue this month. I love joining in with Smiling Sally Blue Monday.
The collage above is a strange mixture but when thrifting eclectic is good.
A mixture of vintage cute and vintage lovely.
Sometimes the elegant is also found.
The romantic prints group and the small wooden rocking horse end my show and tell this month. Of course I found more but enough is enough.

I'll be back on Thursday at 7:00 am.
Thanks for coming by to check things out.

  1. The vintage floral print is my favorite. The Cuban cigar maker is quite appealing in a strange way. It looks like a piece of folk art.
