~Thrift Shop Finds~

It is a rainy day here today, but yesterday was a very nice day…so my sister and I went out to lunch, stopped by our favorite little shop and then did some thrifting.

I found a few things…picked up two soft pink glass domes to turn into cloches for on top of old vintage plates.  They will have little birds nest on the plates when I get them finished.


I also found an old vintage plate with a pears on it.


I have it displayed with my Grandmother’s pear collection that I have.


Also picked up a brand new Vera Bradley purse with the tags still on it at our local GW…this is the second one that I have found there in the last few months.

After getting home from my outing with my sister…my daughter surprised me with this little plate.


Turns out that she stopped by the GW on her way home from work. She thought that this little plate would look good in the cupboard in the dining room with all the white pitchers that I have.


Yep……I agree with her…it looks great with my white pitcher collection.

It was so wonderful to get out and about with my sister. We hadn’t been out thrifting in so long, because of all the snow that we had this winter. I’m so glad to welcome Spring…the robins are back, my purple crocuses are up in my front flower beds, and the squirrels are playing in my backyard. Oh yes…..Welcome Back Spring…I have missed you!!

Until next time…….         blessings, Cindy

    So, I have to ask. When the snow keeps you in, do you end up shopping online? I seem to need my shopping fix and resort to the internet if I can’t get to the stores.

    I love all of your white pitchers.

    So much Spring inspiration here! I need to get my bunnies and eggs out. Can’t believe Easter is almost here. Guess with all the cold weather, it doesn’t feel much like it? I do remember one Easter when I was growing up that it snowed. Pretty cold in white sandles! lol
    Hugs Again!
