Can you believe it? Another decade GONE! POOF! Vanished right before our eyes!
This is, indeed, the last Thrifty Thursday post of this decade! Hard to believe!
This week was light on thrifting, but as always, I managed to find a few things.
Hubby was along when I picked up the lovely box. Its metal with a mesh lid. Not old or anything...just a cool metal box for two bucks. Of course I got the "What are you going to put in THAT?" My patience is wearing thin....he should know better than to interrogate me about my thrifty purchases!! LOL I do not KNOW what I'm going to put in it. Loads of DMC? A knitting project? A sampler project? Maybe nothing! Who knows!
I found this great old sugar bowl for a buck.
I wish I knew more about it...the pattern etc. It's not marked. Very crazed on the inside and was stuffed with old yellowed newspaper. Of course I was hoping I would yank out that newspaper and there'd be a wad of cash in there, but nope. Go figure! ;o) It will be a nice addition to my little collection of white sugar bowls I seem to have started.
And then there were these!
Are they not the cutest?
I have a small spooner glass right now on my counter that holds a multitude of old silver baby spoons and another that holds sugar shells. I was thrilled to find these to add to the collection and thought the fork was a score too! I happen to have a keychain that I purchased at a quilt show from a lady that crafts items from antique silver, and the keychain exactly matches the handles on this lovely little pair! The silver was three for a buck!
And of course the bowl...
Two bucks....had to have it...loved the colors in it. Hubs says he doesn't like it. He says he doesn't like orange. Well....I have come to actually love a shot of orange here and there! This will keep all my other odd pottery bowls company and I will enjoy it with a big bowl of cereal some late night I'm sure!
This is prime time to check out your thrifting shops! Everyone rushing to get their end of the year donations in! Check out your area and see what treasures await!
Now we'll say good bye to 2009 and in a few hours welcome in 2010!!! YAY!
