So yesterdays thrifting did not go so well! Of the three places I tried, two were closed and one was A. gross and B. mostly clothes. I couldn't end my shopping trip on such a sour note so I headed to Pier 1. Don't you just love how that place smells! Yesterday it was smelling even sweeter since the one open thrift store was so foul!
I went in looking for pillows for my living room but found this little beauty! For $3.95!!!
Intended as napkin jewelry, I thought it would make great human jewelry! Does she not look like she is right out of the Stella and Dot catalog?
Sorry for the headless photo but I had just gotten back from a walk with a neighbor and from the neck up was not lookin' so good! Anyway, here is a very similar one from Stella and Dot (who I love...and own many pieces from, including this exact brooch/pendant in silver! A gift from my sisters!)
Stella and Dot - $49+shipping!
All I did to my Pier 1 find was forcefully remove the ring part and slip a chain through one of the openings! You could take it even farther and hot glue a pin to it and turn it into a brooch.
I know this isn't a thrift store find but I thought you'd prefer it over a picture of worn out mom jeans from the stinky thrift store!
SO I hope you enjoyed my blast from the past. Last time I was in Pier 1 they still had these!
