Well my friends, I must admit that I don't need a darn thing!
what's need got to do with it? lol!
Treasure hunting is just so much fun. I try not to go too often, but when I do I find that I bring home quite a few goodies.
I have a fruit and veggie theme going on in my kitchen for the month of Aug.
I was excited when I spied this little pitcher for 75 cents. There were two of them, but I only bought one. I do have some will power. Hee-hee!
This cup was $1 and the saucer came in a stack of assorted small plates taped together for an additional $1. Our local thrift does not put cups and saucers together so you have to do a bit of searching.
It's a fun game seeing if you can find a mate.
The design is English Harvest and is made in England.
The harvest is exactly what I think of this time of year. I've picked cabbages, peppers, and onions, but it wasn't until last weekend that I picked my first tomato. Usually I pick one by July 4th.
A green transferware saucer and onion timer.
Driving home with my friend, Joanne; the timer went off. It gave us a good laugh!
I picked up the bread pan a while ago. I love it when collections are both useful and have a fun theme!
These are not old, but I have such a weakness for dotty dishes! I will use them for Fall and Halloween. Thought they'd be great for making individual pastas for the hubs and I.
I love anything Beatrix Potter and I have a small collection. $1 for both pieces. I thought that the pot would make a cute vignette this coming Spring.
I picked up the large wheat glass for 50 cents thinking it matched my collection. It is different, but that's o.k.
I love these tulip juice glasses! They're red, need I say more? :)
I can never pass up doilies. do you think the little one with the blue bow is a baby bib? I hung it on the clothesline in the playhouse under the stairs.
I love old fashioned paperware!
Pretty enamel bowl. Again, not old, just cute.
I'm going to turn this light shade over and make a bird feeder.
The blue cherry bowls were scored for $1 for all three. Two have a small chip and one is cracked. Actually, the one was fine when I got them. The bagger sat the sack down hard and I heard something crack, but didn't say anything. Darn, of course it was the one good bowl.
As I looked at this collage I realized that everything in it other than the set of small dotty bowls was picked up at thrift shops.
All of the blue checkered pieces were found one at a time. Love when that happens!
How sweet is this little nursery rhyme cup and saucer? I especially love Mary and her lamb. I have plans to use it in a back to school vignette.
Some of my finds were picked up by my friend first. She handed them over to me. Obviously she has better will power than I do. Her excuse was, I don't do vignettes. Like that would stop me! lol!
I also found a fun picnic table, but I'll show it in a later post after I give it a make over.
Have you found anything fun lately?
