Do These Not Scream "Grandma"?


They do. They scream grandma.
My grandchildren do not call me 'beppe' for nothing.
The era of this house lends itself so well to vintage thrifty finds.
Maybe it's just because when we first came through it, the kitchen was filled with Delft.
THGGM also did well thrift shopping today.
He found two old metal-framed oriental pictures. They are lovely and will find a place of honor in our basement, which he is presently painting. He also found three Ralph Lauren shirts - they were buy one get two free. We threw our budget to the wind today, as we had Christmas money to spend.
More of my purchases appear in the posts below. It was a good day for thrifting.

I have an older Dutch Zaandam clock with Delft panels. I love it, but I'm also considering selling it. It just doesn't fit in to my decor. My grandpa bought it over in the Netherlands in the early 80's for about $700. Maybe I'll keep it. :)

Ooo! Post a picture of it, please! And KEEP IT!

My grandpa died on his last trip to The Netherlands.
