THRIFTING TREASURES & GIVEAWAY WINNER!

Checking out some thrift stores here in Texas I have found a few items I could not leave on the shelves!
This creamer is Fire King Peach Lusterware 
It just 'glows' it is so pretty and a new addition to my 'creamer collection' and my first Lusterware
99 cents was the magic price for this pretty

I also found this really cute painted bucket
It has a hole drilled in the bottom, so it will be perfect for my Mums next fall and again
only 99 cents!

I am always looking to add items to my 'Texas collection' and I found these items in two different thrift shops.  The shot glass was 29 cents and the mug was 99 cents.  Both have the state flower, Blue Bonnets, on them.  

I carried this little glass cat around the GW for awhile trying to decide if I would pay it's sticker price of $3.99...it isn't that much but more then I usually pay for my junque!  However, I felt like this was Fenton.  It isn't marked and has some flaws so maybe it was a 2nd.  Anyway as you can see I got him and will be taking him home for the 'cat collection'

And finally...new shoes for Linda!
There is a Sketchers outlet near my Mom's and I decided to stop in.  I loved the selection and since I only wear backless shoes and needed a new pair of sneakers with great support I had high hopes.  
I found several pair that were contenders and reasonalbly prices at around $35....but me being, well ME, I of course went into the clearance section.  
There they were...only $19.95 and with PINK trim! Yippee!  I already love them!
(no compensation from Sketchers, just my opinion)

I'm joining these fun parties this week

I need to rejuvenate, see my family and just sleep in my own bed!  I had my last visit with my brother and wrote about it on my other blog

What a sweet little creamer! I feel as though my Mom may have had some of this peach lusterware once, but I can't seem to remember what it was.

Enjoy your new sneakers...they're cute. Wishing you a safe trip home & a good night's rest in your own bed!
