New Thrifty Treasures

 I'm back and I'd like to thank everyone who offered me well wishes. I'm feeling much better but not quite up to speed.  I have some new thrifty treasures that I'd like to share. I bought these before I got sick. Since I love looking at everyone's treasures I thought it only fair to share mine as well. Here are some of my great finds.


I got this pretty silver plate coffee pot from The Salvation Army thrift shop. I cant resist silver pieces.

I also bought this  pretty relish tray.


I found this pretty pair of milk glass compotes at Goodwill for .99 cents each.


I found this gorgeous tureen at Good will as well. I don't know if its new or old the only markings on it are are carved in and its CHF 2 I don't know what that means , but I know I'm crazy about this piece.


I found this cute Lefton vase, I like cherubs but I only have one other piece with  cherubs. It has a crack on the neck,  but for 1.99 I'll take it.


I think I got a pretty good haul for about 18.00 dollars for everything.


 I'm so glad to be back and I'll be visiting everyone. I cant wait to see what you have been up to. I'll have a couple of great chair projects to share soon.

I'm joining Cindy at  My Romantic Home  for Show And Tell Friday. And  French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday and At The Picket Fence for  Inspiration Friday and The Shabby Nest for Frugal Friday and  Mel  DREAMS Often  Fancy Friday Blog Hop and  Its so very Cheri  for Party Time.

Under The Weather, Projects Stalled,and Shopping My Shed



Well I had a lot of things planned for this week.  Unfortunately my health had other plans. I was on a roll and BAM! I was hit with a wicked flair up. I've been in bed most of the time for the last 4 days. I think I've only been able to sit up long enough to visit  my blog friends for about twenty minutes a day. I had energy to write about two or three comments. I miss you all terribly. This ole blog and reading all of you guys great blogs is an important part of my life. It keeps me going. Today I'm shaky but I am able to sit here and write for a while. I just thought I would give you a little sneak peek at some of what I'd been up to before I got sick. I bought this chair at Goodwill and am 98% finished redoing it,


I went shopping in my shed and pulled out a lot of things I used years ago. I have  plans to revamp these mirrors.



The mirror at the top has a planter attached. For some reason I forgot to photograph that part. I'm going to separate  it from the mirror and use it  for storage in a different way. The second mirror is for the living room and I plan to paint it and add some embellishments. Here is a close up of the detail.


I also pulled out this rug, which I had intended to use  in the living room. I was going to use it on the wrong side because it has a more muted look and kind of resembles sisal an that side. Now I'm going to have to rethink that plan because  the rug is a little small for the new seating arrangement. I'm thinking I may make a floor cloth  instead. I want to show you the rug anyway because its pretty and I'll probably use it somewhere in the house.




I also got a few pretty thrift store finds but I got sick before I could  get pics. I'll share them later. That's all I've got for now. I'll be visiting you my friends, please forgive me if I don't comment.  My energy is pretty low. Hopefully I'll have a project to share by the end of the week if I keep improving.  Love to you all.

 I'm joining the The Mustard Ceiling for the Mix and Mingle party.
