Thrifting

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 that...so 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

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