This is the time of year to get out and snap up the thrifty finds!
I've been donating and cleaning out, but this week Mr. Retro and I hit some thrifts.
"Just browsing" can't help but turn into a little buying at the thrifts.
The colorful serving, fruit, pasta, whatever bowl ~ pretty & useful!
Mr. Retro found it for 50 cents. What? He loves to show me up.
It looks great on this vintage tablecloth with purple accents. I just
happened to have candles with the same colors as the bowl. I know!
One little lonely fish plate, made by Syracuse, pattern "Driftwood".
Couldn't resist this cutie, wish there had been more of them.
Fell in love with this mod looking pot. My score for $1.50!
Marked Tirschenreuth, Bavaria. Wonderful quality.
Mr. Retro found this gingerbread house mold, two sided for making all the house
pieces. Guess I'll be making a Gingerbread House this coming Christmas!
I found two beautiful teacups that were both Made in Japan.
A lovely Lavender with gold accents,
and this lovely floral, still in original packaging.
With gas prices like this and still dropping, its a great time
for some road trips to go treasure hunting, isn't it?
Mr. Retro framed the two abstract paintings I finished a couple months ago.
We thought they helped to make this a nice grouping. The large fish is a chalk
painting by Bolivian artist Mamanimamani. The hoop chair is indeed
mid-century modern, and my pottery collection sits on a wall shelf above.
That's it for now. Have you done any treasure hunting? Wishing you a
"cool" week, it has been hot-hot-hot here with no relief in sight, whew.
