Hello everyone ~ hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was filled with antiquing,
thrifting, church, time spent with family, and having lunch out with my hubby. In other
words, it was pretty much a perfect weekend.
Me, my aunt, and uncle spent the day on Saturday exploring a couple of antique and
thrift shops that we'd never been to before. We all came home with some
This first shop we went into was a newer shop and very well organized.
I bought a vintage rose picture...
and a cut glass salt and pepper shaker. It was the red tops that got to me.
The milk glass piece was a thrifted find from a few weeks ago.
Walking down the street, we came upon this beautiful, huge house filled with
antiques from attic to basement.
Loved the wooden staircase in this house!
I found milk glass spice jars with two of my favorite kitchen colors - blue and red.
I have them displayed on a shelf in my kitchen. See the two blue colbalt cups
on the little shelf on the right? Those were an antique mall find (there's two more in
the set) when I was out with my mom a couple of weeks ago.
My other find in the house full of antiques was this Paden City Pottery platter with
a matching creamer and sugar. I loved the colors and the flowers. I got it for 50% off
as there's a tiny chip on the back of the platter and a hairline crack in the creamer.
Walking around the little town we were in (which I had never been to), we also found
a great thrift shop. I found a Bodum tea pot with infuser...
the cutest plate with two farm girls feeding chickens...
and three little glass bottles with wire wrapping. I also found (not pictured) two designer
polo-type shirts for Brian (Tommy Hilfiger and Aeropostale) for only $2.49 each and a
Brita water pitcher for $3 that looked barely used (and ours had just broke!). Perfect
timing, as I really didn't want to spend $30 on a new one.
One last recent find ~ this beautiful table from a private seller on a local Facebook
page. I have it sitting in my bathroom until I have time to get it outside and paint it.
I'm thinking of painting it a pale yellow.
Thanks for visiting and for all your kind comments. They mean so much to
me. Happy Monday!
