A Few Thrifty Finds

The last time I dropped off items at the thrift shop I, of course, looked around and found a few things to bring home!
A very eclectic group but fun!  
This Ironstone pitcher/creamer is so pretty!
It's "Petite Flora" made in Japan and sold at Sears in the '70's
I love the soft colors and it looks great next to my house plants!
I also found this lamp....it's a project
I like the shape and the height the price ($1)
It has been painted and while I like the color it doesn't go with my room so I'll repaint it
see....a project!  
And I could not resist this cute pillow! 
It isn't perfect colors for my living room but it was only 25 cents so it came home with me!

I'm working on taking more items to the thrift shop as I downsize my dishes and other collections.  I'll share more about that soon! 

I'm joining 

Wishing you JOY,
Linda

Great finds Linda! I would have also bought that sweet little pitcher and pillow home. The 52 Things to Do On a Plane sounds interesting...is it a game or book? Have a great evening!

Blessings, Vicky

Love the sweet pitcher and that really sweet birdie pillow! Linda, in your travels to the thrift store, if you see a white ceramic ladle for a soup tureen, I would love it and will pay for it and shipping. Thanks in advance.

Holy moly, a quarter for that sweet pillow? Love the sweet pitcher, I have a thing for those little pitchers too. Have to laugh because I'm donating things right now too, but then I look around, and usually bring something home also, lol.

My favorite is the bird pillow followed by the sweet pitcher. Did you luck up on an Eiffel Tower too?

Sarah said...

Cute finds, Linda. I'm in the clean out mode this summer with lots of boxes and bags going to the thrift. '-)

Susan said...

Ohhhhhhhh, the little pillow is absolutely darling. I would have bought that, too. Glad you got rid of some treasures and found others. Susan

Jill said...

You didn't spend much and came home with some cute things!

Marigene said...

Linda, I am laughing...I used do the same thing, take things to the thrift store and come home with almost as much. I finally decided it would be more to my benefit if I conned Howard into taking them, that way...nothing comes home!
Cute, cute pillow and the adorable little pitcher really does go nicely with your plants.
Have a great week.

WOW, the prices at your thrift store are wonderful! Prices have really gone up around here...but I always manage to "justify" a few things to come home with me :)

Donna said...

The birdie pillow is just adorable, Linda! What a great find! I do the same thing as you, I drop off donations at the thrift shop, then go inside to look for more treasures:)

Vintage Christine said...

Hey Linda! I really appreciate your comments on my posts now that I'm trying to start blogging again--you're usually the only one commenting but thanks nevertheless! You're so funny--you take stuff to the thrift and come home with stuff from the thrift. Sounds like me, except I am always buying stuff and then can't part with it. Wish I had your self-control. Sears had some pretty neat stuff made for them in Japan--I have several pieces decorated with cat-tails!

bj said...

Love your treasures..bet the lamp will be so cute when you finish it.
Have a great day...

The bird pillow is precious!

I hear ya about clearing out stuff. You are my hero for doing all that you have already, and fling your mom's stuff, too!

Diana Petrillo said...

Hi Linda! I haven't visited in far too long--just wanted to pop over and say hi :) I agree with everyone else, that bird pillow is too precious. Hope your vacation is terrific and that you enjoy your time with your two blogging friends.
Blessings,
Diana

That pillow would have come home with me, too! I've enjoyed looking around, and your Tiger is such a cutie pie! I have a Thursday party for thrifty finds...you should join us! It's small, but full of good junk and great people. :)
