Thrifted Thursdays - Birds of a feather continued

DSC_0152

To continue with my Most wanted Mondays - birds of a feather post I thought it would be only fitting to highlight a few of my owl/bird thrifted finds. These are only a few pieces of the collection - I need to keep some surprises for other Thrifted Thursday posts ;)

Ceramic owls - I bought each on separate occasions, but was lucky enough to find my owl lanterns small twin. The groovy owl with big eyes is my favorite. It looks to pretty with a candle inside of it, it casts little rays of light all across the room. Urban Outfitters had something pretty similar to this awhile back but it was only one color. I bought each for less than $1 :]

Floral Shelving - The shelving unit holding my owls is from a garage sale. My mom picked it up years ago and has sat in our garage ever since. Last year I decided to salvage it. I really love the coloring of it and the pretty floral details on each side. It is pretty old and worn but I think that adds to its charm.

Metal peacock pair - Freshman year of college a friend of mine had a beautiful golden pair of these peacocks on her wall. I had always loved them and as luck would have it I found them a year later in a Florida thrift shop. Side note - Florida has the best thrift shops by far! Anywho, so I scooped them up as soon as I saw them. I love the blue, green, and gold combo.

Have any of you thrifted anything neat this week? Please share! Hope you all have a lovely Thursday.

  3. Wow so many great finds! I love your owls so so much. And those wall peacocks are super cool too. I need to start looking at stuff for the apartment instead of just clothes when I go thrifting.

  10. Those owls are adorbs, but what really caught my eye was the shelf! What a beauty! I was at Marshalls tonight, trying to find something like this actually. They had a really pretty bird cage in turquoise or mint green (I can't remember which it was) and some cute shelves meant to look vintage-y.
    And lucky you! The peacocks are gorg'!

    1. Thank you. I am glad someone liked the shelf :] I was so glad I found it amongst the crazy piles of stuff in my garage. It was hard to take pictures of it though, being so tall - I didn't want to take up the entire blog page. I have been noticing birdcages a lot at thrift stores lately and some of them are really beautiful. I really like turquoise and mint green so I am sure it was awesome.

    1. Thank you. I really love the peacocks. They make quite a statement. I also feel like they have a lot going on though so I made sure to hang them alone on a wall.
