What's Up Wednesday On A Thursday!

 For my June birthday, my friend Carter and I went to the mountains.  We drove through the Smokey Mountains to Bryson City, NC.  Pretty views along the way and a cute little town.  I did a little shopping in an adorable vintage shop!
Outside they had plants and this great bike with flowers!  We also stopped at some thrift stores and a Flea Market.  I had a good time and found some treasures!
PINK!  All the pottery pieces were bargains.  The vases were both .50 each.  The little planter was $5
The flower frog was in the vintage shop and a bargain at $3.  I found this Flamingo spreader for .25 at a thrift shop.  I love it when I can add things to my existing collections.
I have a hard time leaving sweet little vintage wine glasses at the thrift shop.  This one was .25, the ceramic owl has magnets to hang on the fridge and hold pencils and was $1.50.
This gorgeous milk glass compote with lid was $8 and is in wonderful condition.  I found it at the Flea Market!

We stopped at an Antique Market in an old school and it was like a museum of gorgeous items.  Lots of glassware, pottery and collections one could only dream about.  Pricey but beautiful.  I saw these Roseville pieces and fawned over them.  I hadn't seen these except in books.  Amazing works of art!

Nothing purchased here but worth the stop just to look.
Thanks to all who sent me notes, cards and FB Birthday wishes! 

Locally I found these items.
 Love these little cabbage S&P's and $1 for the pair.  I believe they are Bordallo Pinheiro!
 These gorgeous Vera Butterfly bowls were .50 each at the thrift shop.  
This beautiful milk glass plate was $1 at the Habitat for Humanity.  

Another pottery planter for .50
A pottery vase to hold some of my paint brushes.  Pretty glazes and only .50.

So these are my latest thrifty finds! 

Wishing you JOY,

What fun Linda ... love all the Roseville pottery. Sure would enhance my small collection. I might have been tempted.
Thanks for sharing.

Nice finds. I have not gone to any garage sales or estate sales this year so far. That is where I usually find good buys.

Hi Linda,
What a great way to spend your birthday. Love all the sweet finds.

I haven't seen Roseville like that in a long time. I wonder if young people would have any idea what that was or how valuable it is (or was?)

Susan said...

So happy you got some great little treasures, Linda. Have a terrific weekend! Hugs. Susan

You had FABULOUS finds but I have to say my favorites are two of your least expensive -- that flamingo knife and the Vera bowls! I really need to repurpose one of my vases/pottery pieces/etc. for my brushes. Up at the lake they are in an old BC glass (the comic strip) which isn't particularly pretty but functional. I love your new brush holder!

Oh I loved seeing your treasures Linda! So many pretty finds. Love the pink planter and the white plate the best. The white plate looks like from the depression era. I find good stuff at our Habitat for Humanity store too. Anyway, Happy scored on everything! :)

Forgot to mention...those Roseville planters and stands are so fabulous! I saw a few at an antique show once, and like you was awestruck. Thanks for sharing.

Susan said...

So happy you got some great little treasures, Linda. Have a terrific weekend! Hugs. Susan

Susan said...

I'm just so jealous of all your treasure finds! You have the best eye for them. Hope you're on the mend and feeling better, XOXO

As always you are a super hunter. You manage to find pink everywhere. Love the pottery piece for brushes.

Melanie said...

Happy birthday, Linda! Sounds like you had a nice day with the treasure hunting. I love those butterfly bowls!

Stephanie said...

Ooooh, I am just loving your pink finds! The flamingo knife is simply fabulous :)

Thank you for the sweet visit to my blog this morning. How your comment blessed my heart!

Hugs to you, dear one!

Looks like a great trip! I just love those cabbage salt and peppers, what a deal! Hope all in well with you, Linda.
