~my thrift finds~

My sweet friend invited me to go to the thrift yesterday. With $12.00 to my name off I went. Glad I did. Look what I found to add to my old English cottage collection. $1.50 for the 40s framed print $1.50 for the made in Japan teapot.... 20 cents for the old bird, 40 cents for the porcelain rose frame. After the thrift we went for a yummy lunch of hot Italian subs, fries, & a cola. I came home with $5.00! How about that. What a fun day it was spending time with a good friend..LOL..

I think thrifting is my favorite thing to do. Not actually sure if I save any money, but I think I do! How is Isabella doing?

Hi Mary, oh good for you ,what wonderful finds ! Isn't it so nice to know it doesn't take a lot of money to make someone so happy. I know just how you feel. Makes me feel truly blessed to have just a little money and sometimes find just wonderful treasures. I'm so glad you had a fun day with your friend. We all need that little time off some days.
Blessings,Shelley

I love your finds, especially the cottage teapot - perhaps we can sit down and have a cuppa together one of these days!!
Thanks for all you are doing to help me - hope you're resting now though!

Mary, I have tagged you with the name game.
Love your finds. I may find some things at mom's that you can use for your cottage look. Will keep you in mind while "digging". Hugs, Pat
