I Went To The Thrift!

With all the items I'm donating you would think I wouldn't need to 'shop' .... but of course I did!
For $2.41 this is my haul!!
This flag piece made it into the cubbies
This wine glass is from Christian Brothers winery in Napa Valley.  The first winery I ever visited back in the '70's.  It is no longer in operation so finding this glass brought back some great memories! 
The cards are for crafting and the dish will fit into my toaster oven.  I have a few pieces of this bake ware and it's pretty great in the microwave and the oven.
This children's book has wonderful illustrations and I've been picking up black frames for a wall display of some photos I took in Paris
This Oyster shell is pretty cool and just reminds me of my blogging friend 
Ron at Uptown Acorn
This mini painting and easel caught my eye...I 'might' have to change the picture to a cat so Charlie will still love me!

...and you can never have too many glass flower frogs!  or can you???

I'm sharing my finds at 
and 

Wishing you JOY

Linda

Love everything you found Linda! Can one have too many flower frogs you ask? Since I have never seen one, I'd say, I'd love just one lol! Love your new look too ;-)

how neat about that wine glass, it was meant that you would find it. how many people would not have that real association with it, you know. and that flag piece, at first i thought it was fabric.

Great finds! I know you are a careful shopper and buy only those things that you have an idea of what you can use it for. i like the children's book and the frog.....as you say, you can never have enough frogs!

Great finds! I love finding good children's books and who doesn't need another frog?! Hugs, Cecilia

You are right about not having enough glass frogs!! I have two myself and they're in use, so of course I needed one the other day!!

Sarah said...

We all know it's the thrill of the hunt! Great finds, Linda. Love the mini painting on the easel, and no, you can't have too many flower frogs.

Everyone needs a little thrifting therapy occasionally!!! Great finds and, Yes, we always need another flower frog!

Rebecca said...

Fun! I'd jump on that glass frog, too--and would be happy for the black frames if I had photos of France to frame :)

Anny said...

WOW you really saved a lot and got some really cool, unique stuff. I can never pass up frogs either.

Diana Petrillo said...

No, you can't have too many flower frogs! LOVE your new look Linda (sorry I haven't visited in so long). Your header looks fantastic; nice job. You got some great stuff for two bucks and some change. Take care, Diana

Fun finds!

I have no glass frogs so I guess I need to get out there and find one.

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

My house is full to overflowing and I can't pass up a great deal either... And, we can't have garage sales here so getting rid of things that way won't work.

Love your collection of "new" things. I had some of those pans too, I think they were advertised to cook the best chicken ever.

Your Fourth of July goodies in the last post are DEE.LISH..

Blessings,
Spencer

I love frogs!

I think they'd be fun to collect but I'm trying to weed everything down!

It's hard to pass up bargains like that for sure!
