THRIFTIN FINDS

Saturday was my daughter's birthday and we had a wonderful brunch!   I also had to make a Thrift Store visit to the Salvation Army store near where she lives.  I found these great items!!
I see lots of pink!
These 4 glasses were awesome at 49 cents each
The white silverware holder will help me organize
Close up of the pattern 
I got three pink plates which I love!
Also an addition for my Flamingo collection
 This really cute mug, love the handle!
I also found these two teacups
Love the pattern inside
 And out (I should have removed the price tag)
My last find
This unopened package of Discover Georgia's Songbirds cards
These were from the AJC (Atlanta Journal Constitution) store
This Atlanta newspaper has an online store where they sell reprints of historic front pages, photos and artwork seen in the newspaper.
These cards are from 2003 and the artist is Elizabeth Landt.

Right now they are offering some beautiful art prints
One of my favorites is a series of watercolors of the Lighthouses of Georgia

I love those pink glasses and at .49 cents, oh my. Thanks for your nice comment and support. I am lucky that I am not really renting a new place but rather taking over one of my existing office rooms. It has its own entrance to the lobby so is all self contained. It is a large room 16 x 16 so I will have space. It was time for a change. Let's see how it goes. I am going to give it my best. Thanks.

Whoohoo! Good day junking! I'm close to DT's. I haven't had time to stroll the aisles of our local thrifts and overslept the yard sales on Saturday!

I'll have to live vicariously!
