Thrift Shop Stop(s)......

I don't have an opportunity most days to get out and mill around the Thrift Shops and so while I was on the other side of town today for an appointment, I decided to seize the opportunity to pop into 2 stores that I normally would not have ventured into. Boy am I glad I did; I scored these sweet treasures and walked out for less than $10.

I just love the ceramic plaques with the roses on them. They had a price tag on the back of them that said $20.00 for the set but the sticker from Salvation Army said $1.99 each. I gladly paid the SA price......

Here is a better look at my new (old) goodies; the sweet little mirror is going to be painted white, the cherubs will lovingly hang on the wall in front of my desk, the adorable little white candlestick has already found a new home under a sweet little cloche in my sun room and the ceramic boot with cottage roses is for a very special friend. I love to play with my new toys when I get them.....and I love to share them with my beautiful friends who mean so much to me.

I don't EVER go on picnics but this adorable little picnic basket was beckoning me and I just could not resist. Perhaps as my life has begun to change and rearrange, I should find time to stop and spend some very special time with my children and people who mean so much to me; a picnic would be such a sweet way to do that!!!

Some chicken salad sandwiches, potato salad and cupcakes for dessert. We could tuck a couple of bottles of Trader Joe's sparkling Lemonade in here and were off on a picnic. Simple and sweet......

Can you believe that this plaster stand was only $3.00? It is kind of torn up at the bottom but I simply turned it around so that the damaged part is facing the wall and it makes a nice addition to my front porch. I purchased a lavender plant recently and I think it will look fabulous on this white stand. Couldn't pass it up at that cost......

These sweet little teacups were $.99 each, how could I say no?

Imagination please with these; I know these will look amazing after they are bathed in white paint. The brass cherubs will adorn a cottage rose picture I have hanging in my sun room and the big chunky candlestick will hold something shabby chic no doubt....

I love the shape of the candlesticks and saw beyond the gold leaf and dark rustic finish. I will share their transformation as soon as the paint dries. I would say my day was good......
