Hello and happy Wednesday! I have had a really busy week so far! How about you? Meetings after school every day this week and I have been trying to come home an walk a couple miles every day...until today that is...:( I started noticing a tickle in my throat yesterday causing cough attacks and today it is terrible, along with aches and pains and a low fever. Don't know what it is but I pray it is short lived. I came home and started taking some medicine, had soup for supper and have basically been lazy this evening. I really hope I can go to work tomorrow but we'll see.
Anywho, not much going on to share this week but I never did share my last few treasures I found....so share I shall! I went to the Hospice Attic last Friday after work and of course, managed to find a few things. I mean...it was really hard for me, but I did it...lol!
I thought this little gravy boat was a great deal at just $0.99. I may keep it but it will probably go to my Etsy stock. I saw one just like it listed for $12.
I loved this adorable little cloche. Now, I think it was originally a tea light holder, but for $0.39, it came home with me to become a cloche. One day I will have to do a post of my cloche collection...:) I love them!
I got this vintage set of 6 heart tins for $0.99. They were still in the original packaging.
I am trying to come up with a creative use for them for Valentine's Day. Maybe a garland....
I have a hard time passing up vintage dictionaries...especially when they are just $1!
It's the teacher in me!
I bought this piece to put up until fall. A wooden pumpkin basket with metal handles and trim...$1.99.
Hearts were everywhere that day...they had recently put out all the Valentine's Day items. I got two bags of these glass heart taper candle holders for $1.29 each. Each bag had 8 inside. They hold a very skinny taper but I don't plan to use them for candles. Right now they are just piled in a bowl. Trying to decide what to do with them...ideas?
Here's a close up of a couple.
This new set of bakery stencils was just $0.29. I thought I might make cupcakes for my kinders....might! I am really trying to avoid sugar...:) One of the things I am trying to be BETTER at this year.

And, I was on my way to the cash register when I spotted this beauty in the glass display cabinet near the register. I saw the sticker said $3.99 and had to bring it home. It is just gorgeous. It has to be old...look at the brown showing through. I tried to find one like it and failed. I thought this would be perfect for fall or even Christmas decorating.
Do you know what kind of fruit this is! Most likely a berry since there are thorns on the stems.
The very next day, the hubby and I went to his mom's house to work on her pump and she took us out to lunch at Beef O' Brady's when we were finished. I had some delicious steak tacos...love me some Mexican food. It's my favorite! On the way home, we stopped by a thrift store I had never visited before. I found this beautiful cut glass, amber colored bottle. It looks like a short decanter. Not sure, but I love this color and have been wanting something in this color for a while now. It was a little more than I would normally pay at $3, but I just love it.
I bought this unfinished wooden H for $1. I have a hard time passing up the letter H and the number 4 if I find them.
And the last thing I found there were these two small cloches for $1 each.
Couldn't pass them up for that price.
I am off now as my cough is making me crazy and I think I will try to go to bed early. Thanks for visiting and as always...have a lovely week my friends!
