Junkin Finds!

Least you think I have stopped junkin, 
let me share my latest finds! 
I love cross body bags and when I saw this cute one at the thrift shop for $3 AND it had my initial on it I just had to have it!
I found this sweet little orphan salt shaker and a ceramic pink swan, both only .50 each!
A sweet teacup for a future project, miniature pottery and a blue bird of happiness for my collection!  Bargains all!
Habitat for Humanity had this grey planter for $1.99 and I love the shape.  I'll be looking in my books hoping to find a maker as the only mark is USA.
I haven't been buying Pyrex, in fact I downsized my collection, but finding this casserole that matches another piece I have was a great deal at $4
My latest find was this great shelving unit for $9
It is perfect under my window for plants, pottery and books!  I am always looking for pieces that are multi-functional. 

Thank you for all the sweet comments about my Grands and my family.  I am a very blessed lady! 

Wishing you JOY,
Linda

A multi-use shelf that fits in front of a window is a win-win. Love the pieces you found.

Fabulous plant table and it even has rollers for easy moving. I think I have that little bird's twin sitting on my green hutch! Cute purse.
Have a great day, Linda.

Fab junkin' finds Linda! I love a crossbody bag too, makes shopping so easy with both hands free, especially junkin' shopping. :) Sweet pottery, and I feel like I should know the maker, I'll come back if it comes to me. Your shelf is great, nice looking piece as well as useful.

Great finds, but then I'm never surprised at what you get! The shelf is wonderful and I know it will display some very pretty things, XOXO

Melanie said...

Wonderful finds, Linda! That shelf is absolutely perfect under your window. Love the pottery. Crossbody bags are perfect...hands-free shopping, no strap digging into your shoulder, and a safer way to carry a purse, too. I have the same bluebird! I actually have the big one, like the one you got, and a small one, too. The small one is in my living room window and looks so pretty with the sun shining through it.

I remember that purse and the cabinet! Had a nice day that day.

Vicky Hunt said...

Great finds Linda! That cross bosy bag is perfect and such a great deal. The shelf was a great find as well. You will fill it up with lots of pretties I'm sure. Have a great weekend.

Hugs, Vicky

Your shelving unit is perfect, looks like it's on wheels too! Fun goodies, especially the bag that was waiting for you.

Jann Olson said...

Wow Linda, you really did get some great deals. Nothing is ever that cheap at our thrift. Pyrex is usually put in the collectors case ad marked higher. I have accidently collected swans. lol! I picked one up a year or so ago because it was aqua. I put it in our basement bath. Since then I've picked up quite a few others.
hugs,
Jann
