My Kind of Find

This was my only Christmas purchase at the thrift store this weekend.
Hard to get a picture of at 11:18 in the evening.
But I knew if I did not get a picture now I would forget that I bought it.
I LOVE IT! Mostly, because about 25 + years ago I cross-stitched this. Well, not this EXACT one, but from the same pattern.
Today, I still think it is a beautiful piece.
It cost me $1.50.

Nice find for my green book collection!
It even has some color pictures inside.
And again, sigh...

Great Storage at a Great Price

Picnic baskets make for GREAT storage.
I cannot seem to pass them up.
Under the buffet in the back ground of this picture are four picnic baskets, and there is another on top. Not sure where this one will end up, but I know I'll find the perfect spot.
It was $3.50 cents.

I Found This!

I've been looking for some vintage-y Christmas stuff for my kitchen. I found this yesterday. PERFECT!
I think I'll be using it as a vase since I only have one.

Cute Couple

Found this cute couple at an antiques mall in Wisconsin.
LOVE their vintage bisque-y-ness!

It's Beginning

It snowed here a bit over the weekend.
I dug out my snowman mugs even though it will hit the mid 60's this week.
Michigan. You just never know.
Someday this week I plan to start dragging out a bit of Christmas decor.
So, when I saw this for 69 cents at the thrift store, I figured I'll have a place for it soon enough.

More Treasure

Last week we took a trip to Wisconsin. Here are just a few of the things I found along the way.
I find it impossible to pass up a cute Dutch boy. So this one came home with me, along with the living one I found thirty-some years ago.

The potholders each have half of a snap on the back. Wish I had whatever it was they attached to!

Simply LOVE the salt box,

and added another KLM house to my collection!
We had a lovely time antique/thrift shopping. As soon as we arrived home, I put things 'away', which means I cannot remember everything I found.
All the more fun for me, as I shall be just as excited when I remember that I bought them as I was when I bought them in the first place!
Ah, such fun it is to be aged.
