Let's start with Mitch's gifts to me. Okay, so this one he kinda cheated on, since I spotted it when we were out antiquing one day. It's an Audubon print. I don't think it's an original, but it's old and not a recent reproduction if it is a repro at all. I love it.
It's currently hanging above our bed--safer place than behind the couch in "storage."
Another Federal style mirror to add to my collection. (This now makes three!) You can catch another glimpse of the Audubon print and a teeny sliver of Federal style mirror #3 in the reflection.
An old ironstone dish that will someday hold our keys on a table in our new entryway. (What a glorious day that will be!)
I love its imperfections.
Cute little toothpick holder
This was not a Christmas present but was purchased yesterday at a thrift store. Mitch spotted it, showed it to me and when he saw I loved it, said, "I woulda gotten this for you if I were shopping alone." So we're gonna count that one. I have a mini collection of hobnail milkglass pieces, but this one has to be the cutest.
And thus concludes Mitch's gifts to me. Oh, he also got me something else that's very exciting, but I'll have to show you another day since it's being stored elsewhere:)
And here's what I got Mitch. We'll more-than-likely add this to our gallery wall.
These were another one of those "cheater" gifts. Both of us were out with the boys one day at a thrift store (before Christmas) and we spotted this stool and mitre box. They were just too cool to pass up, so we bought them for each other.
And this really neat wooden box. We'll find a use for it, I'm sure;)
We got some awesome stuff, didn't we? Up top, thrift shops! So whatcha think? Are ya gonna give it a try sometime? Maybe start with someone who you know will appreciate a thrifted gift. Of course there are some
