Monday's Finds

Monday found me at my neighborhood thrift store.

I was actually dropping stuff off, but you know how it is, I had to go inside and look around for just a bit.

I found lovely wooden napkin rings, which seem like they would have dozens of uses - at least that is what I tell THGGM.

Little wooden buttons - I can think of a lot of things to do with those, but I actually like how they look just sitting there in a little bowl.

Which, of course, was also a thrift find!

And the Vogart transfers! I've been looking for a great blue bird to embroidery on something.

I do buy "somethings" to embroidery

on, so all I need to do is do it!

I did find the GREATEST thing ever at the thrift store last week, but THGGM put his foot down and said that I could not buy it. A LOVELY set of cornflower dishes. Service for many. Eight, I believe it was. I have a few odd pieces that I've picked up here and there, but haven't seen a complete set in quite some time.
Oh, well. He rarely tells me no, so when he does, I listen and obey!
Now. If only I could master doing that without all the whining and complaining.
I'm such a work in progress.

ah - I would bring my old set in and by the new set (I've done that and have been thinking about doing it again)....
