Thrifty Thursday, another Peacock

I stopped by a thrift store yesterday and found this peacock! It was only $2, and it meant to hang on the wall. I think I may paint it white.
I also picked up a pile of zippers and bias tape for upcoming projects I've been meaning to get to. They were 3 for $1.
And my favorite, another pile of silver flatware. Most of them are monogrammed, and a few are really pretty serving pieces. They are all very tarnished, and some have silverplate loss, but I don't mind.

  7. Hello,

    What fabulous finds! The flatware is great. It will be fun to see how it cleans up and the detail...wonder what kind of tables it setup over the years! If spoons could talk...!

    Have a lovely weekend!
