White Wednesday treasures {a little early}

I cannot visit my daughter without going
treasure hunting and I found
some amazing items at great prices!
this apothcary jar stands 16 and 1/4 inches tall
and it was only 9.99 at Home Goods...
my favorite store~
I just love antique lace and have been looking for
some in narrow widths and they are pretty hard to find.
Imagine my sheer delight when I found a quart size
ziploc bag stuffed full of beautiful antique lace
for $3.00!

Yards and yards of beautiful lace!

couldn't pass up this vintage hat loaded with
lily-of-the-valley millinery...$4.00

more of the luscious lace !
I also purchased the beautiful linens that the hat
is laying on ...4 napkins,12 placemats and 1
long runner....regular $28 for $8.00!
a beautiful tattered pillow that I also found at
Home Goods
salt and pepper shakers for $3.00.

I have more goodies to share , but will save
them for another day.

I hope you have a beautiful day today.
Be sure and visit Kathleen {on Wednesday}
at Faded Charm for more beautiful WW posts.

Sandi amor, I have to tell you, I love ALL your lovely treasures! Isn't HomeGoods the BEST store ever :) We have them all over here in So Cal...and every now and then I go there and just have Their Clearance isles are THE best! All your lace is just gorgeous!!! I love your lilies of the Valley, would you consider selling some or trading for some of the millinery I have :) Can't wait to see what other beauties you found! Besos, Rose

Oh my goodness Sandi, all that lace! That was meant to be yours for certain... rows upon rows of gorgeous lace. So you went into that store that I still haven't made it to? Will have to get there soon so we can compare stories or perhaps I can finally bring something home from Home Goods. Love that pillow! I'll be back tomorrow ;)

First off, your weekend away and the food involved sounds absolutely DELICIOUS AND FABULOUS! Yummo! Homemade anything is great and I love lunch at Panera Bread. We don't have that around here so look forward to going when we are in the States for the summer. Lots of lovely whites! Always fun to thrift in good company. Have a wonderful day! :) Tammy

June said...

Oh stop, stop Sandi before I can't take anymore! You are the luckiest shopper I've ever met. Those laces are so perfect and that HAT!!! I love lily of the valley.
I just know your hands are going to be soooo busy for awhile making pretty things. And I sure hope you'll give us peeks at all of them.
hugs, hugs, and more hugs,
