I'm Back...with Thrifty Finds!

I'm glad to say I am back from a long week of sniffles!  I am
much better and have to say I had the best day ever with Mr. Biff
yesterday!  We went up Island on the old highway and wound
our way up the Coast.  It was lovely!

Of course - we had to hit a few thrift stores on the way (how
can you resist thrifting in a different town?)

Here's a couple of the things we found.
I am on a roll with picking up turqouise items including
the little teal coloured glass conductor bell.  Love it!  The
little ceramic disk is kind of cool - not sure what I will
do with it but I am sure I will figure out something!  The
little tin and the giant clothepin will go on my desk.
I also found this metal architectural detail - again not sure
what I will use it for by the gears are grinding....stay tuned.
I've totally fallen in love with linens....this table cloth has
beautiful tone on tone embroidery and cutwork.

The best find of the day - hands down was this little
crock I picked out of the box of items destined for
the shelves but not yet unpacked.  It was a whopping
3 bucks and is valued at about $50-$75 online.  The
company, Medalta was in operation from the early
1900's to the mid 50's.  Score one for me!

Hope you had a good week and thanks for sticking
around while I was absent!

I have so many of the conductor bells. I love them, but haven't figured out what to do with them yet. I'll have to keep watch and see what you come up with.

Hi Peggy!

Forgive me for taking so long to thank you for coming to my party. I had so much email about my accident and black eye. It has taken this long to catch up.

Now I must say that the crock was a mega score! Did you know what it was when you purchased it?
