Lovin' those thrift store finds~

It is another cold...brr...day in Michigan today so
the plan for me is to stay indoors and maybe get some
more creating done. However before I get to that
I thought I would show you a few of my finds lately.

Still loving this Sander tablecloth. This is the tag that is
on it. If anyone can decifer for me I think that would be
wonderful. Right now it is my favorite tablecloth!

Thinking outside the box here. I found these crown
earrings on clearance at Claire's after Christmas
in their 10/$10 bins. I found four sets and they will be
used to embellish bottles at some point.
{they were regular $10 per card!}

This bottle was 1.50 at the antique store so I had to snatch it. Haven't a clue what I will do with it yet. Maybe just display??

Have you ever seen a heart bottlebrush garland? This was at the Goodwill too with the TJ Maxx tag still attached. It will be heading up to my booth soon.

This candle is so much prettier in person! I received one for a Christmas gift and I found this one the other day at the Goodwill. My first one is all used up so was tickled to find this one. They are from Kohl's.

Oh my goodness! How in the world did this little sweetie end up in my thrift store finds?? Well she was NO thrift store find at all, but I would have scooped her up had she been!! LOL

I just found these this past week. Neat silver creamer and beautiful vintage rose plates. 50 cents each.

Vintage Iris pitcher at the Goodwill as well...

I purchased this set before Christmas. It was found at
an estate sale. Have you ever seen one of these sets? The custard cups are marked Pyrex and the deep bowl
that they set in is marked Fire King.

Now I need to get busy before the whole day is gone and
I have accomplished nothing. I hope you have a
wonderful Monday!! Blessings~

Hi Sandi :) You found some great treasures at Goodwill! I'm really loving those sweet plates ~ It's been well over a week since I last visited our Goodwill stores, and I'm feelin' the "withdrawal" LOL :) Try to stay warm, and yes, definitely stay indoors!

Warmest hugs, from a fellow Michigander, Brenda

Hi Sandi... great finds!... love the little silver creamer (and the little cutie who snuck into your post!)... I don't think those custard cups really came as a set in that bowl... looks to me like someone just set them in there, and I kinda think that looks like the rack from an old water bath canner?... xoxo Julie Marie

Take care,

Hello
I'm Annemiek from the Netherlands and i found your blog today .
You've asked if someone can translate whats on the tag on the tablecloth , we'll i will try .
It's German and says: its a fabricmix from linnen [ i don't now the englisch word for the fabric???] .
Don't wash it with a liqued with bleach in it , en when you want to iron it , you have to make it al little wet first.
My engish is not so good , but i have given it a try .I'll hope you understand it .
Good luck with you're wunderfull finds .
Greetings from Holland , Annemiek

I always love seeing your thrift store finds ~ you find such treasures!
I just know your earrings will turn into some treat fit for royalty! I have never seen a bottlebrush garland but yours is sweet!
How nice to find a 'refill' for your candle!
I would have snatched up that little sweetie in a heartbeat also, had I found her at the thrift store! ;~P
Yes! That is a neat little silver creamer and '2die4' vintage rose plates!
I love old kitchen ware and that blue Pyrex bowl is no exception!
All wonderful treasures for you and beautiful eye candy for me!
Blessings!
