Three Thrifty Finds!
Hello and Happy Monday everyone! I am so excited to be sitting home today...even if it is the last day of my 4-day weekend! It has been busy but I got a lot of things done that needed doing...:) I was in Tallahassee Friday, Chiefland on Saturday, Lake City on Sunday, and back to Chiefland today. They are all 45 minutes to 2 hours away, so I have spent a good deal of time on the road! My trip today was quick....I had to go have fasting labs drawn at my doctor's office
so I had to do this today since I didn't want to take a day off work for it or go without eating all day and go after work. I really just wanted to stay home all day, but that just wasn't possible. Anywho, I also needed to pick up some medicine for my mama who is sick, bless her heart. I decided to run to the Hospice Attic thrift while I was there too....imagine that! LOL!
I only found a couple things though which is for the best....remember I am outgrowing my home!
First thing I spotted was this set of dishes. They are by Knowles and are called Grapevine. They are really pretty and will look great in many tablescapes. There were 5 plates, 1 serving bowl, 2 soup bowls, and 3 small bowls for $3.99. I am only keeping the plates. I am adding the bowls to my growing ETSY stash! I can sell them for more than I paid for all of it....that is, if I ever start my shop!
I love the simplicity of these plates and can picture them in a variety of tablescapes.
The only other things I bought were a couple books, a green leaf table runner for my mama, and this milk glass pedestal vase. It was just $1 and I didn't have one like it.
I am also sharing these beautiful emerald green goblets my mother-in-law picked up for me at a yard sale Saturday. They are very heavy glass and absolutely gorgeous. They will look great in many tablescapes!
There are 6 of them in perfect condition! I can just picture them on a Christmas table already!
That's all I have for today. I am so excited that I had time on a Monday to share. Now I am off to clean house and write lesson plans. I'm even hoping I might have the time to whip up something in my craft room.....we shall see! Have a beautiful week everyone and as always, thanks for stopping by!
