All my life I have been attached to old things, antiques. I love decorating my house with them, collecting them, & depending on what it is- restoring them!
I want to show how I have used my thrifted items for The Sodus Blossom!
I love collecting old jars & vases of all kinds. On the far right is a glass amber goblet probably from the late 60's early 70's. I remember my grandmother having these exact glasses in green. I have found them in sooo many different colors, but this amber one is certainly my favorite!
Then the newly popular milk glass. I have been collecting milk glass vases for awhile and within the last year or so they have been disappearing off the shelves of thrift stores and antique stores because everyone wants them!
Next is the not so popular milk bottle. You've seen the old school movies where the milk man would come to the house and deliver milk in cute little bottles-- that's it!

On the far left is thee oh so popular blue mason jar. I still love this jar & I use it in my house for dry ingredients, but as far as weddings go - it is so over done folks (i did it at my wedding to so no judgement).
Another favorite thrifted item of mine to keep flowers in is old coffee cans!!! They are becoming more popular, but I have loved them since I saw my Opa (german word for grandpa) using old coffee cans to organize his work shop!
I love the look & style of these cans, I can't get enough!
Lastly, is an item that I have received from my mom after my grandmother passed away- handmade tea towels and doilies. These are very special to me not only because they are from my grandmother, but because she hand stitched them all! I use them to help add to the vintage look in my house.
Do you have any thrifted items that you love? Send me a photo or tell me in the comment box below, I would love to know!!
