Some Recent Thrifted Finds

Hi, Friends,
How are you? I hope you are well.
It's been a little while since I've showed off some thrifted finds. Some you might have seen in my last post
I love collecting for a theme. 

A few weeks ago, my brother was here and we did some junking. 
It was so good to spend time with him and do something normal. 

I found this adorable green coffee pot. This is how I styled it in my East Texas kitchen. 

That green spatterware is just too cute. It was $10.00 which I thought was a great price. 

I was surfing Facebook Marketplace and saw that a long time friend of mine was selling a quilt. 

I've been on a quilt kick. 

It is my first Facebook Marketplace find, if you can believe that. It was $22.00. It belonged to her great aunt Su. I have an Aunt Susan so I thought that was fun.  

I also found one at my thrift store. It was $24.00. 

I can't make them for that. 
A friend of mine was giving away a quilt stand. 

Its transformation has begun. The potato bin was a $10.00 antique store find. 
It's been updated. I don't know what I'll use it for but it was cute. I think it's going to be a planter for some faux florals. 
Since these are green, they are headed out to East Texas. 

I went antiquing on my birthday. 

I was so happy to find this red transferware lamp for $36.00. It's been rewired and it is good to go. 
It is perfect for my red 2021 kitchen. 

I love it when I find cute faux flowers at the thrift store. It benefits my favorite charity and provides some seasonal decorating fun at the same time. 

Michael's wreath with a $79.00 price tag. It was $15.40. 
These filler flowers were $1.50 each. 

Bill and I went to the architectural salvage place. These opera glasses were only $2.00! 
They are stunning. They clearly didn't know what they had. 
The demanded a turquoise moment in the step back cupboard. 

My thrift store has opened a sister store which has nicer antiques and collectables. 
A Windemere's Fan muffineer is from the Buckeye Glass Co. It makes me wonder if my mother's biscuit jar isn't from the same company. They have a very similar look so they are paired together.
I need to do some research on that. 

They also had these darling strawberry glass jars. I didn't realize it at the time, but they are missing the lids. I don't care because they are cute. 

I just noticed the crooked candle. Oh well. I can't do anything about that since I'm not in East Texas. 
The vintage tablecloth was just a couple of dollars. 
It's so fun. 

The best find wasn't mine. 
My daughter found this tea towel for me for my birthday at an antique mall. 

A black cat on a green towel that says Friday. We love arriving at the new house on Friday nights. 
This might be the best antique find to date. 
Thanks for stopping by.
