I decided on the title of this post after cleaning up my thrifty finds from the last two weekends.
Why is the wonder in parenthesis? Well, as wonderful as my treasures are, (at least to me); I often wonder why I can’t resist. This time I justified it by saying that soon the basement will be finished and I’ll be moving a lot of things downstairs.
A couple weekends ago I attended ‘Fleattitude’. A junkers paradise! I really did pretty good and did not buy a lot.
I couldn’t resist these goodies for my farmhouse kitchen. Isn’t the drippings bowl so cute?
Last weekend in St. George found me toting home more. I’ve quit buying red glass, (so I thought) because my cabinet is full. I knew I could squeeze in two small salad plates and a bowl. $5 at a yard sale. So glad I did. I found that I had two other plates to match.
I love this platter. Half price, $7 at a consignment store.
I found the blue trimmed saucers and white ramekins at a thrift. $3 for all. The saucers are Pyrex. Who knew they made more than bowls? The ramekins are Fire King. Of course I can’t pass up a green handled kitchen tool or a sweet red and white doily for 50 cents.
Four Johnson Bros. Thanksgiving plates for $1 each. No wonder I can’t resist.
As well as an old brown bottle and a rusty dustpan.
This basket came home with me simply because of the color. Are you starting to feel that I have absolutely no will power?
I have a weakness for old boxes. Wish I could say it was my ‘only weakness’! lol!
I have plans for these in my craft room. Again, the erasers were bought because I love the mustard colored box.
I loved the graphics on these two bottles. A thrift find for $1.50 for both. They are not old. They had a tag from a shop still attached.
This fun tote was only $3.
There you have it my finds from the last two weekends. Actually, I have a few yard finds, but I’ll save them for another post.
All I can say is that they better hurry up and get my basement finished. I May have more now than I have room for. Might have to sale a few things.
Good thing I don’t go to yard sales and thrift stores every weekend. Although it makes a person ‘wonder’ what treasures they have missed. Hee-hee! Yes, I have a sickness!!!
