Hello my friends and welcome to my new series where I share some of my new found treasures.
Also, I'm going to see how Sept. goes with my radiation, but still may open it up as a link party.
Last Thursday my sister, Julie and friend, Dolly came up for what we call, "a fun day". a day of gallivanting and pampering.
First we went to a damaged goods store and then we hopped over to a thrift shop near by. We finished off the day with a pedicure.
I stopped in my tracks when I spied this picnic basket in the yard area of the thrift shop for $4. Both Julie and Dolly exclaimed that they had just walked by there and didn't see it. :)
What can I say? I've got the junkers eye. lol! Really, there are times when I walk right by things as well. Just happened to be my lucky day!
I have another picnic basket out in my shed, but I loved the color of this one. I didn't take time to style it, just plopped it on the porch with a couple of wooden watermelon wedges.
I had to run to the town of Payson last Sat. to pick up a quilt block. Hubby rode with me. I warned that if I was down that way I was going to stop at a nearby thrift. I spied this pitcher for $2. I knew it wasn't real old, but I loved the aqua stripes!
It has this marking on the bottom. I googled and although I couldn't find one just like this, similar ones were priced at $19.99.
Today I had to go to Provo for Genetic testing. Yup, another thrift is right across the street. I had to stop! Really it's because I am looking for vintage Halloween trinkets to put on a wreath I'll be making in craft group. Oh, and I did find two things I can use when I found the pitcher.
Didn't find much at the thrift today, but these five little parfait type glasses were only $.75 cents for all. I knew my little grands would think they were so cute! I put the quarter by them so you could see how small they are.
They say, Ed Debevie's on them. I googled and found out that they are a sundae style shot glass. lol! Don't tell my grands.
What kind of grandma am I, encouraging them to start drinking out of shot glasses at an early age? (wink)
I picked up 5 flower placemats for $1 each thinking they would be fun for a fall tablescape.
The last find today is a green enamel Field and stream pot with lid.
Not old either, but I just love enamelware and thought it would be cute planted. Who knows, it may end up being one of my kids Christmas 'thrift gifts'. Yup, I started a fun tradition three years ago of giving each family member a thrift gift. I have a great time searching for the perfect item for each individual!
Well, that's all for this week.
Have you found any fun treasures or trinkets lately?
Also, I wanted to mention that I will be gone all day tomorrow, so Share Your Cup will go live Thursday at 7 a.m. MST.
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
