A few things I found this week, When I stopped at the Thrift shop when I dropped off the poodles. The Goodwill shop next to the groomers sometimes has good things. I must say though that the prices have really gone up beginning to make it less of a thrill to find things. I really don't need anything else, I have replaced the broken things in the garden and really don't need any more. Having said that, I found this glass item that would make a great flower center.I may make that because I do have a nice glass plate that would work with it.
I gave Laura some of the glass dishes I had found so picked up 3 more at 50 cents each. We stopped at the Samaritans closet out in Lake Leelanau. Boy they sure get some nice furniture in. Anyway, this is button glass, its heavy cut glass but I am not sure of its original use. Maybe posh people used them as butter dishes. I will use them for other things, like pretty stones.
Talking of Button (or daisy) glass I found some pretty amber glass and I can't remember is I showed that before.
I seldom buy clothes at thrift shops but have to say sometimes I can't resist. I found two tank tops I thought they would work for around the house. I used to wear tops like this all the time and gradually threw out many of them so.....I got two.
I couldn't leave this tea/coffee pot, I had intended it for the garden but actually its the colours of my dining room so for now I found it a spot
I really don't have room for anymore tea pots or cups. At some point, when ready to downsize I will sell them on line maybe......but not yet.
This guy will go in the garden
I enjoy finding pretty things even though I don't need them. If I don't make something out of them, then they go in a yard sale or if I just love them they stay somewhere in the house. I found this chicken plate and that one went
in the kitchen.
Going with my chicken theme. I have moved a couple of chucks into the garden, they would look better if I could get the weeding done but ah well. Always hope the garden would be pretty in the fall
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
