{thrifting 101: centrepiece of old treasures}

I love when treasures of past come together with new treasures to make a complete look. I found this amazing vintage milk bottle carrier at a garage sale (!) during a cottage weekend. I admit, they aren’t very common to come by outside of antique shops or online but if you’re loving this look, it may be worth the investment. I have tons of these vintage mason jars, I come across them often at thrift stores for no more than $2 each usually.
The jars were the perfect size for the milk bottle spots. I got an assortment of simple but pretty flowers and now I have a pretty new centre piece for my dining table. This would be great for an outdoor event.

    @Salvaged Strawberry – the metal carrier can be a bit tricky. Try antique shops or flea markets.
