Sourcing Floral Finds

I have said it before, but I will say it again--when thrifting, have a few key words in your mind and you WILL better see and find those items. This week I have been thinking FLOWERS and just look at these floral finds from the past few days!
Vintage Floral Finds from the Thrift Store
From the floral fabric piece that I thrifted for $1 (and that I will use to recover something or make pillows) to the vintage, amateur floral paintings, I have been sourcing all the flowers this week. 
I met a gal who was an amazing picker when we lived in Idaho for a year. She told me she manifests her picks by saying aloud what she wants to find. I am not sure that always works, but I do know that we see what we want and what is in our minds and I do believe in the power of positive thinking. This week I have been thinking grow and spring flowers.

The tall pitcher is an antique, Bennington Rockingham, hand-painted piece from the 1800's. It will make a lovely vase. The vintage stationary set with bird and floral art on both sides of the box is a sweet memory for me. As a preteen in the 70's we often received stationary sets as gifts and is a reminder of slower times when letter writing was commonplace. The orange juice cup is a 1950's Napcoware piece. i thought it would be cute for toothbrushes in the guest bathroom. The divided floral dish is Czech Slovakia Erphilia and will go on my wall. It originally would have had a handle on it.

The three, amateur floral paintings will go into my sunroom, I think (I am running out of space for florals in there). The basketweave pitcher holds faux flowers for spring.

The smaller, tall stool came from a friend that is moving. She used it as a plant stand and currently it is sitting in my entryway with the fake plant on it. 

I often think of Field of Dreams and "If you build it, they will come," while thrifting. If you think it, you will find it! It doesn't always work and sometimes I have to be more patient than I'd like, but I do believe I find more of what I am wanting to source because I think I will.
