Some Thrifted treasures.....

 Last Friday running errands and grocery shopping
I hit our few local thrift stores....
and found some more milk glass to add to my collection.
the vase is a very unusual pattern and quite heavy.
 This was the prize I thought, how sweet is this and it works
although I think it should be re-wired as its wiring is not up to code
shall we say....
 This lovely afghan that George has set claim to....
 My new sugar scoop...
 Loved this tray, I see a tea party coming up....
 I fell in love with this little cloth and tea cup.....
 This little vintage garbage can fits
perfectly in Mimi's room.

 I found this little water color for my wall....
 Its such a nice pop of color....
 I couldn't grab this little cutie fast enough....
isn't she adorable... 
last but not least this 
mirror,which fit just perfect in Mimi's room.

grand total $22 for my treasures.....

Can't wait to hop over and catch up with you....


  1. My favorites are the lamp and the water color painting. Great fines!

  2. Beautiful treasures, as always. Do you know I have the same blue and white striped ceramic handles on my kitchen dresser as are on your little blue chest of drawers - we could be sisters!My friend Betty over at Betty The Wood Fairy has just painted some of those delightful irises - pop over and have a look. Have a great weekend,

  3. Oh, fantastic finds, especially the tray and the wall of painting is gorgeous....oooh, I also love Mimi's rug, its very pretty. How fun would it be if we could all meet up and go treasure hunting! Enjoy your weeks end, Tam x

  8. Heidi
    It looks like you had great fun! I love bargains.
    Your couch resembles the one my g'mother had when I was little!

  9. The Raggedy Anne is adorable! And that is the cutest daisy napkin! I love using cups as scoops! My mom always did that too. Wonderful little striped crochet afghan too! George obviously knows the good stuff when he see it! :-)

  10. Wow! Really all is for 22$? I can't believe it!
    We have some "marche aux puches", but all is very very expensive!
    I love George on his new afghan, and your new tray, of course!

  11. Oh my god - All that pretty stuff you have found! It msut have been a good day:-)

  12. oohhh what lovely finds. Love the milk pottery and that little vintage cloth is such a lovely pattern and colour. And that try is such fun and i love the blanket and your wall looks gorgeous with all your pictures on it. You could just say i love it all ;-) dee x

  15. What lovely finds..I need to shop where you shop! I love everything you bought :) The cake tray is adorable.
    As a young girl, my Mom decorated my room with raggedy Ann and Andy..the little doll you bought, brings back memories :)

  16. I'd love to come thrift shopping with you, you have the rare knack of finding the most beautiful things, the watercolour is the tag bloggy thing, I feel I may be ostracised for not following the! x

  17. Wow, I want to go thrifting with you! Everything is great but that cup with the little blue flowers caught my eye, I would love an entire set! It looks like it might be from an earlier line of Corelle dishware or perhaps an Anchor Hocking line. - Love when you share your treasures. xo

  18. I love all the colours - and the qute little dog too =)
