My Saturday Finds!

Ok yall, try not to get too jealous at my fabulous finds.  I found this wonderful serving

piece and it's marked sterling silver.  Oh my, and it only cost me $3.00!  Yippee, do a little dance type excitement.  I need Sherry's, over at Country Wings in Phoenix, dusting slippers.  If you don't know what I'm talking about go over and visit her at Country Wings in Phoenix. She is just the sweetest lady ever, you'll love her!

Wait, I'm not done, there's more.  I found the sweet little basket made of crochet and the little yarn angel ornament.


I also found the lace dresser scarf which is so yummy looking and so very vintage!

Found these limoges bowls for 25 cents each.  The design in the center is a little faded but, the 22 k gold edging is wonderful.  I just love their  vintageness.

I have always wanted one of these silver ice buckets so one of my sweet friend Peggy, that has a booth at Miss Minnies too, surprised me with this one the other day.
I just love it and I think I am going to fill it up with some glittered up seashells.

I'm almost done, but not quite.  I was getting pretty tired of scouring all the thrifts and yard sales, but I had one more stop to make and lo and behold, I found this little pretty just waiting for a shade and a home.  It's made in Japan not, China, thank goodness!

Ok, that's it for now.  But I'll be off tomorrow to see what Habitat has to offer.
Wish me luck.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my good blogging friends.  You are just the best!

Hi Sissie,
You DID find some awesome things Saturday. I love everything, but the little yarn angel is so sweet. I love to find beautiful silverware pieces too, and this one is definitely a lovely find. I can't get over the $3.00 price tag. Good for you girl.
Hugs,
June

I love all your finds. Wish I could have that kind of luck. The lamp and dresser scarf are my favorites.

Oh Sissie, you got some marvelous finds. My choise goes to Limoges? Wow, that should be very expensive. Beautiful, I think they put it in the dishwasher that it faded. I think you better wash it by hand, it is so beautiful.

Sissie,
Love your treasures, they put on some good garage sales in SoCal. The bowls are my favorite, I like them faded. It shows me that they were important to someone and many good meal enjoyed in them. I read your post about the pillow you made for your booth. I've been working on something similar to hold sheet music and an orniment, kind of holiday-ish. You always have wonderful ideas. Lisa
PS Thanks for your sweet comment on my cottage post, I love your beach style cottage.

Hello Sissie,

What fabulous finds! I especially love the champagne bucket. I am giving one to a friend as a gift with a moth orchid in it.

You left a comment on my blog re the burlap cushions, the price is 21 euros which equates to USD 31.

A bientot,

Oh Sissie...
Good Morning Sweetie. Honey I am coming out there to see you, I have been hanging out in the wrong places. I love your bargains. OMG, those bowls are absolutely gorgeous. Like you who cares if the centers are faded, they work for me. I would just sit a little desert cup in the middle and who would even notice. Lovin it.

Now I just love those dresser scarves, I snatch it up everytime I see one. I have even used them draped over the backs of my kitchen chairs, even when they are all different, I just love the country look and feel. I had kitchen ladder back chairs at the time, and I draped them over the top, and then took ribbon and laced it on each side and tied bows. It looks so festive and I just loved the country look it gave me.

That ice bucket is so special. I have got to get me one of those. I have my eyes peeled now. Lovin it.

Thanks for enjoying my blog with my pink post.
I am so honored for the mention about my post.
It was so much fun, and I love to have fun, even cleaning. One of these days I would so love to shop with you, but for today thanks for taking me along with your finds. I love it sweetie. Stop back by soon. I so love it when you come to visit.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
