Thrifting Thursday and Garage Sailing

YES....He is the "KING" of his little world :) I made a "perch" for him so he can look outside while I'm on the computer...can we say "SPOILED"!!! These are from the 2 garage sales that I went to. One of the hymnals is from 1928. Slim pickin's for me and what I'm looking for.
Below are my Thrift Store finds. 1 vintage towel, sweet stationery, 4 pretty dessert plates, princess house glass jar with lid, very pretty cottage plate with hollyhock flowers on it and a couple other items. Even thought I make cards...stationery "calls" to me LOL

This morning I helped a friend with her sale. Both of her parents are now in Heaven, the house is sold and they have gone thru their she needed to have a sale. There was a good variety of treasures as many other family members had their stuff to sell...and I didn't take a photo..sorry... it was busy while I was there and forgot all about taking some pics.
Do you know Glenda, from Many Fond Memories??!! She is a fellow blogger and is feeling lonely and I'm thinking once you go visit her and leave a COMMENT...her spirits will be lifted up. She loves the stuff we do and has a great post. How about giving her some support and blog love?! Thanks, friends!!! We all love comments and love to meet new gals.
Not sure what the weekend holds for me. The city is having free curb side pick up of JUNK that you don't want. They will come by on Saturday and I have some "crap" that needs to I have to help hubby clean out his garage LOL...he has the double garage and I have the attached single they take branches. People put great stuff out. My son is looking for furniture and I said "look around the neighborhood"...there are some High End houses just down the block. I have picked up a small 3 drawer night stand in great I might be out tomorrow myself looking for free treasures.

Oh Deb, I love the treasures you found, especially the desert plates. I am going to do a post about my "plate fetish" and share some of the plates I call "treasures". Great finds, love you lady!

Yes, I can say "spoiled"!! LOL My little dog, Spikey, sits on my lap when I'm on the computer, too! Another spoiled boy.


Glenda said...

You sweet thing, mentioning my hysterics. I am out of my funk now.

You always find some great things.

Have a wonderful night!

You're so lucky with the Awesome tea-towels you seem to always find... the one with the Red Tulips is Beautiful...

Good Luck with all of the Garage cleaning and with your "curb side shopping"! It truly is amazing what folks will discard... Cannot wait to hear what you 'n your son find this weekend! Talk with you soon...

You do find the neatest things, I am amazed at how many garage sales you go to. We are finally starting the sales around here. Tomorrow our town is having a city wide garage sale and I picked up a map at City Hall. Have a nice weekend and thank you for coming by.

Hi Deb, You have the best thrift stores, nothing like that around here. Probably because everyones treasures went under water.
I found just doing a little each day on the sewing room organization has really been the key. You want believe the progress you make.
Keep crafting,

Hi Deb!!! How are you doing my friend?! Love that little PH jar/lid. I have a love affair with crystal.
I'm sorry i haven't been by. I fear I've been neglectful. We've all been doing well over here. Just busy, busy, busy. We're getting ready for my dad's 80th bday and we've been refreshing the house, painting what needs painting, fixing what needs fixing and we're sprucing up our backyard and patio area...yes after 9 nine years. lol!
I wish our city would do an "everything goes" day, but it doesn't. Luckily our trash service will pick up our junk 2x a year without an extra cost.
Aw, sweet puppy on his perch. Darn right he is the kind of his terrier world, lol!
Give him a pat and the others too!

Hey Girl!
Oh it's been so much fun catching up with you! I've missed you! I love the anniversary gift hubby got you and that table is gorgeous too! I wish I had one like that one....
Happy Anniversary to you both!
I loved seeing all of your recent finds too. Isn't Spring and Summer so much fun! I know you have been having a ball seeking your treasures! I want to tell you how much I love the embroidered framed pictures that you sent. I have them hung in a special spot, and everytime I pass them I think of you and the kindness you've always shown to me. Just know that even if I'm not getting over here to visit you as often as I used to, that you are still in my thoughts, my dear friend.
I hope you have a great evening!
Big Hug,
