SixBalloons Featured on Thrift Core!

I'm very excited to share with you that Thrift Core has posted a Feature on SixBalloons!

If you are interested in learning a bit more about me and where I thrift, check it out and let me know what you think. If you've come over to my blog from the Thrift Core site, the photos in the blog post are for some of my favourite finds:

Aqua Thrift Haul: That little cookie monster castanet from the 80s is oh so cute. I wonder if they made them in all the characters!

Victorian Velvet Chair: I actually left this beauty at the thrift store while I debated about it... I was so happy that it was still there when I went back the next morning. I noticed that whenever people come over, they tend to gravitate to this chair! =)

Vintage Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights: I finally read Wuthering Heights for the first time over Christmastime and it gave Jane Eyre a run for its money for my favourite book! The wood engraving print images in this book are the best. If you have seen the movie Definitely, Maybe with Isla Fisher and Ryan Reynolds, you have probably seen some of the amazing illustrations within the book.

Le Creuset Cocotte in Flame: Purchased this classic piece at an estate sale, after missing out on similar pieces over and over again!

Kathie Winkle Corinth and Viscount: It's fascinating that such different patterns can look so great together.

Le Parfait Super Vintage Mason Jars: Love the bulbous shape of these mason jars with their beautiful script writing.

Owl Night Light: A reader emailed me to tell me that she had one of these night lights when she was a child!

Pyrex Bue Scroll: One of my favourite Pyrex patterns that I didn't even know about till I saw it! A $5 score at the Value Village which usually prices much higher these days.

Remember, if you enjoy reading please feel free to become a follower and keep on reading! Many thanks to Van at for her great feature on Thrifters Around the World!
