My little Mele waiting patiently to share my morning toast...
Someone asked me about the little quilt I have on my table. I have several of them and I bought them at Tender Heart Treasures. I'm sure many of you have heard of it. I seldom buy anything from those little catalogs, but as for the little table toppers or throws, I have found theirs to be wonderful. Softly aged.
The garage sales have been rained out for the past two weeks..and could be tomorrow by the time you are reading this. So yesterday we decided, since we are RETIRED and can do what we want we would spend the afternoon going to Thrift stores..namely Goodwill and Salvation Army.
At the Goodwill Store I found a pretty print of a bunny with TWO mattings of rose and white for with a perfect frame. A little milk pitcher, a wonderful heavy pewter frame with velvet backing in perfect condition.
At Salvation Army, a Pottery Barn red and white checked shower curtain and matching window curtain from JC Penny's Home collection, a etched glass brandy sniffer and a Westmoreland milk glass larger creamer.
I loved this little frame, perfect for a grandchild's picture...in like new condition for .99 cents. VERY heavy!
It's difficult to see the cut double mattings but they are very nice. The back is totally covered and the frame is beautifully made. It cleaned up so nice. Not a single scratch on the glass. $2.99. Not bad at all!
The Pottery Barn shower curtain is nice heavy material. The curtain with the buttons will be made into a valance for the bathroom window. I will use the large covered buttons on it to make tie backs for the shower curtain? I got the shower curtain and window curtain for $8.00. Someone made a mistake, I'm sure. I scored! Yippee!
I thought this little milk pitcher was so sweet with the raised cherries. 99 cents. It can be used for so many things..including MILK. :) Can you see the large covered buttons on the curtain? It doesn't look like it was ever used.
I hope you can see the leaves and vine etched in the brandy sniffer. $12.50. Not a great deal but remember the apothecary jar I broke? The lid must might fit this..we shall see.
And this Westmoreland milk glass creamer. $8.00. I collect Westmoreland milk glass..so to me it was a deal. Enlarge the photo and look at the grape vines..sooo pretty.
I just put some apples in the sniffer so you can see the size.
We had such a good time and that's what it's all about. Finding deals and enjoying the day. So..Di..get out there! All of the deals will be GONE! (I'm teasing! I know ya got SNOW!) :)
We have been taking loads of things to Goodwill since we redid the house. Out with the old and in with the new. I am off to bed!
Love and hugs,
