I was out thrifting and found this beauty for $2. When I was carrying it in to the house when I got home it was sending rainbows in every direction!! It is almost 12 inches tall and I put it on the scale and it weighs over 5 pounds!!!!
I also found this one for...are you ready?... 25 cents. Both in perfect condition. Some days is it a goldmine when you least expect it.
You can read about another day in 2007 when I found a great thrifty candy dish too. When I re-read the post, I laughed that I didn't have a digital camera back then!! Boy, has my photography life changed.

Lovely pieces! All that candy dish needs is a bunch of M&Ms!

Oh Wow!! Those are beautiful! Are they pressed glass? You have to be a real shopper to find things like that because I know it take a lot of hunting! I have a daughter who loves digging in the mess and finding things like she is my "go-fer" when I go for anything like that. When I used to tole paint, we found some wonderful things to use for painting our pictures on--real treasures.

You are a truly interesting person and I love the things you collect. Loved the button cards!! And the freebe pictures which I will use! (as I have before)

I took a picture of an antique picture from 1900 that is totally made out of embroidery that I think you would enjoy seeing, since it is right up your alley! You can see it here

I'm all caught up on your blog and loved reading and learning about everything.

Beautiful crystal ~ and such amazing buys! I'd be overjoyed to find such amazing deals. Our 2nd hand stores are becoming ridiculously expensive. Grrr!
