Sunday 1/2 off finds and Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap

This AWESOME, vintage floor lamp was only 25.00 because the globe has been repaired...LOVE IT!!!
The items above are from the thrift store. The purse is a "Crazy Horse", Liz Clayborne for only 4.98. Still slim pickings at the thrift stores.

Estate finds and all 1/2 off their original prices. It was a digger sale and fun to pick thru stuff.

More 1/2 off items from the same sale...except the picnic basket is from the thrift store...but it was 1/2 off! The pink ashtray is USA pottery and mint condition. You could use it for a candy dish! More "cake" forks for tea parties. Very sweet and silver!

Little birdie print and birds. I also bought a vintage chair that has blue cushions that is already in my room. I'm doing a blue-ish theme with garden items...and STUFF.

These are the Easter baskets I made for my swap partners, Julie and Pam. It was fun to create with yogurt cups!

These are from Julie at http://kitchenfloorcreations.blogspot.com She did a great job with the little basket and included a hankie for my collection. Of course the chocolate duck is bye-bye!THANK YOU JULIE!!!

This sweet basket is from Pam at http://pam-embracinglife.blogspot.com She also sent a pretty hankie and the little bunnies on the left play music. THANK YOU PAM! This swap was Miss Rhea's Easter Basket swap. Thank you Miss Rhea! I enjoyed creating with an yogurt cup!!!

What are your Easter plans? I haven't decided yet. I need to talk to the "kids" to see what all is going on with them. Not sure what I'm making either. I image cheesy potatoes for sure!
That's all for now. Take care.
Deb :)

Love that lamp!!! I bet you can't tell the globe has been fixed!

The Easter basket swap sure looked fun! Love to repurpose!

Michelle Palmer said...

So many great finds!
Thank you for your sweet comments~
The little originals are not on cards. Each piece is one of a kind (original art) that I draw onto fabric (cotton, muslin)
They might be licensed someday... but for now, they're my way to share originals with people everywhere!

Thanks so much! Hope your day is wonderful~

Joy said...

What cute things you find. What a sweet bird picture. Love the little easter baskets you made too.
I haven't made any cards in so long but I have signed up for a class in April. I am having my family for Easter..oh my! What a crowd.

Linda said...

Hi Deb
Cheesy potatoes sound very yummy...do you do scalloped potatoes with cheese or how do you make them?

Lovely swap items and you make the baskets so pretty. You've been finding all kinds of great thrifting items.

Hope you are having a great week.
