THRIFTY THINGS FRIDAY

This has been a crazy week!  Thank you all for your prayers for my family.  Blake will have his ankle surgery on Monday.   We are hoping for a positive outcome and a good recovery!

I wanted to join Diann's party and share some junkin finds from a few weeks ago

I found this little box
It is made by Touchstone Pottery in Nova Scotia and is fine porcelain. 
 On the top is a Celtic Design.
  I paid 40 cents!


This sweet little pitcher or creamer was also a very happy find...so cute and only 75 cents...lots of uses for this.
This juice bottle is missing a lid but I love the stripes on it and also only 75 cents

I was really taken with this old mixer bowl.  The shape and the bands on it are really attractive.  What kind of mixer did it come from?

GE and for $1 I had to add it to Mr ACL's Mixer Collection

I hope you will go by Diann's and join in her fun Thrifty Things Friday party 


Hugs to you all!

Linda

Hi Linda, the juice bottle w/o the lid makes a great vase. I love the mixer bowl, I'd use that in a centerpiece, too. Great finds, and love that little bubble pitcher, too. xo,

I think you are a wizard at finding the neatest things, I was going to say the little pitcher was my fav UNTIL I saw the juice bottle and it is my favorite...too! Hope the surgery goes well and I will remember you and your family in my prayers.

Great news Linda and we are all still hoping and praying for a very speedy recovery. Love the juice bottle! Doesn't it say "sunshine." Lid or not lid, it is a winner.

Hi Linda; wishing your SIL the very best recovery--bummer during summertime. Love your finds--what neat bargains--that juice jar is my fave! Have a great Friday and weekend. Patty

Patti said...

Wow, you do great at the thrift store!! I never find anything for 40 or 75 cents.

By the way, I'm out of the loop, I guess. Didn't you used to host a Friday Junkin' Finds? Not doing it anymore?

Praying for Blake.

Love,
Patti

Hi Linda,
What great finds. I can't believe the prices you paid...here we would pay much more for some of these items. Love the banded mixing bowl.
Thinking of you and your family,
Cheryl
