On this first day of November I would like to share my items purchased this past month at thrift stores.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mitten. Brown paper packages tied up with strings. These are a few of my favorite things!
The bins are always a necessity for me but….. I can no longer move too many of them at one time. I was rearranging my garage and moving storage around to fit the boat into the garage and threw out my back. I have spent the past two weeks recovering and it has not been without a few tears.
Bins large Sterilite $2.99 with no cover
Small bin with lid .79
These two were actually vintage book store purchases
– Embroidered Torso Stand $3.50
– Fabric Torso Stand $4.25I see a lot of dolls at thrift stores but these two called out to me.
Country Garden Fairy $1.69
Matryoshka doll also known as Russian nesting doll or babushka doll – Uncle Sam.$1.99 It was over by the Christmas items that are just starting to show up at the thrifts.
I found two items for my Pyrex collection – actually five but 3 are not in the above photo.
Corning Ware P-14-B 400ml dish with Pyrex lid $1.49
I could not pass up another red fridgie for .79
If anyone knows how to add luster to them let me know???
I think I now have 4 of these!
I did use them to make Friendship bread a few years ago.
******Christmas * * * * * *
I like to add a candle head Santa each year. I have so many sometimes I do not know if I already have it or not.
This one is so cute and was only 39 cents. I just had to purchase it.
The Christmas ornament is a Scottie Dog 39 cents also that will hopefully some day soon have the name RIO on is for Jane and Mara for their Doggie for Christmas.
Here is little Rio 8 years ago already!
I also enjoy scrapbooking and purchased ribbon for 39 cents each and the Autumn Stickers for 79 cents which have sunflowers and squirrels.
My final purchases were books
Christmas Memories A Folk Art Celebration 79cents
Christmas Cats Lesley Anne Ivory
Halloween Crafts book called Ghostly Frights for Halloween Nights
and a Spanish/English dictionary 99c
I have been collecting blue glass for years. Two days a clear glass pitcher with a beautiful blue glass handle was bumped off the table and went crashing to the floor. I purchased this pitcher to replace it for $8.99. It is a little more expensive than I would like but … oh well.
You can see the cabinet I have filled with blue glass. I have wanted to take every piece out and wash the inside shelves…..I finally did it a few days ago while I was recovering from my back. It took a lot longer because I had to move slowly. I got it done and it looks wonderful. I can now turn the inside light on in the evening and feel good about the collection.
This glass does not match anything I have but again it was 39c so I got it. Often the blue glassware is about $1.69 so I did not pass on it. It will get used.
Does this look familiar to anyone? My mom used a sprinkle bottle when she ironed the clothes back in the 60s. A bit of nostalgia for this old gal!
There are two items still out in my car. An amazing Nutcracker wooden gate that could go in front of a fireplace when not in use.
I window with quilt pieces in the glass panes. It is older and was 14.99. I like it though. I may freshen it up a bit but I thought it would motivate me to possibly make something similar.
I hope you enjoyed my little thrifting treasures. It makes me happy. If you have thrifted any items similar to these feel free to comment and add a link to your post. HAPPY THRIFTING!
