recently thrifted: sweet cross-stitches & glasses with roses ‘n ribbons

Man, I am such a sucker for the sentimental. Take, for example, these two framed cross-stitched beauties.

The top one I found for $14 a few months ago at this amazing vintage shop in Elk River. I was really impressed with the size and condition and knew it would fit perfectly in my pink bedroom above my grandma’s jewelry table. The one on the bottom I scored via trade last weekend from Bourbon & Lace. I spotted it right away and wanted it, but held off until Sunday afternoon to reserve it as mine. I’m so glad I did, because I love it and think the two look rad together. (Thanks to my sweethearted boyfriend for hanging them up for me!)

I also came across this pretty set of glasses this week at the Salvation Army on Nicollet. There were six in the set, but I noticed one was cracked at the register and had to toss it. I love the cutesy ribbons & roses pattern and the gold trim. They were .99 cents a piece.

Well, I’m off to catch up on some housework/bill paying and then take Finnie on a quick walk. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
