This is one of my favorite posts to write. It is fun to look back and see what thrifty finds made me happy this past year.
Favorite Find in Green
This was an exciting find at Goodwill this year. A Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage tureen for only $4.99. I have fallen in love with this pattern from my friend Marigene's blog and to find this piece set off a (bargain) buying spree on Ebay I haven't shared yet but will soon.
Favorite Find in Red
I love this coffee mug and in fact I am drinking coffee from it as I write this post! Found at a thrift store for .59 it is now a favorite mug.
Favorite Find in Blue
This beautiful bowl made by Federal glass was $3 and the blue bottle was .25 and both really made my day when I found them at a local thrift shop.
Favorite Find in Pink
Always a hard category to choose just one, this beautiful depression glass tray won hands down this year and only $2.99.
Favorite Find in White
This McCoy pottery planter was a great find at $5 and really encouraged me to look for more pottery this year.
Favorite Find in Plates
Another Bordallo Pinheiro find this Lemon Leaf plate was only $1 and it is gorgeous!!
Favorite Find in Milk Glass
I still love my milk glass, but seldom find anything that I want to add to my collection. This year I found these two pieces. A plate and a little dish with the green inside. The prices were so low I can't even tell you how much (under $1 for both).
Favorite Finds for Tiger/Scout
I found books, a shape sorter for Scout and these action figures for Tiger. All were hits and most ended up at their house!
Favorite Find in Pottery
This green planter for $1 found at the Habitat for Humanity thrift store, really made me happy. I love the glaze on it and the unusual depth of the planter!
Favorite Find Paris
As you know I didn't go to Paris again, but my eyes always are looking for Paris items. This year I found a few new things but my favorite...
This photo of benches in front of the Eiffel Tower
It was only $1.99 and is going to be part of a gallery wall I am working on.
Categories I'm retiring are:
Pyrex~I sold most of my collection this year, keeping only the pieces I love the most.
WLYS~I haven't gone to the World's Longest Yard Sale in a couple of years now so unless I hit the sale in 2016, this category is retired.
I hope you enjoyed my Junkin Awards. I am downsizing a great deal now but I still enjoy finding those special little things for bargain prices!
Wishing you JOY,
