I must say I am missing home today!
Glad to be here with my Mom but still there is no where like home! 

I did check out a couple of thrifts here in Texas and found some fun stuff to show you!
I found these cute 'stampin up' stamps at the Goodwill for 99 cents...I might try to make some tags or cards
I found this orphan salt shaker also at GW 
Old?  Weird?  59 it joins the other orphans

This next photo is one of my favorite finds last week
Another orphan salt shaker...cute pink pig and only 20 cents at Value Village
It has the old cork and a marking, anyone know what this means?  

These next two items my Mom had waiting for me when I got here...she knows my junkin taste!
I love this milk glass pretty

These are not old but perfect to add to one of my tablescapes! 

No new updates on my brother.  It's a waiting game right now.  I am trying to visit and spend some time with him.  He sleeps a lot.
  I am not sure when I will return home.

You still have time to enter my Shutterfly photo card giveaway HERE!

I'm joining Diann for her

Mom's always know our weaknesses! That little oinker is cute...have no idea who made him or how old he is, though.
My thoughts are with you and your family.

Hi Linda...It must be very difficult to be away from home. But I'm sure your Mom appreciates your presence immensely. May the Lord bless your brother and all of you.

Your treasures are so cute, especially the pig.

Take care, Linda. Susan

Thinking of you Linda. I know it is hard to be away, but it is what you need right now. A little thrift therapy now and then will help your spirits. At least for a little bit. ((hugs))

Diann said...

Great thrifty treasure finds Linda! I have the same set of leaf S & P. I am so sorry to hear there is no change in your brother. I was hoping to hear some positive news. Althugh spending time with your mom is great, I'm sure you are missing being home. Take care of yourself girl! Thank you for joining TTF and have a fun weekend!
