Thrifty Thursday & A Giveaway!

Hello and welcome to another edition of Thrifty Thursday!!! Again just one brief stop on Monday this week....but I picked up a couple finds!



To join all the other silver and silverplate......these do have some age to them.



And no..I probably won't polish them. I love the tarnished patina!

I also found this little Southern Living at Home piece for a buck!



I can't remember what this little cone was called when it was sold thru their catalogs, but I was pleased to bring it home.

See...nothing much this week. I need to get my thriftin' mojo back and get out there more often! The weeks have been rather hectic lately, but am hopeful that will ease up a bit.

This week we'll start the Thrifty Thursday Giveaway! I believe I have some readers that like the prim style, and so I found this great signed Donna White square plate, and would like to send along to a new home!



Forgive the glare...this is a great prim painted plate! From her Hearthside Collection I do believe! City on a Hill! It's 10" square and I got it for a steal!! But am hopeful it will be a treasure to someone out there!

If you'd like to be in the drawing for this prim plate, please just mention that in your comment. I don't want to shove my 'treasures' off on someone that would really rather not receive them! ;o) That said, feel free to link to this blog post and share the giveaway info with your friends. The winner will be announced on next Thursday's Thrifty Thursday post!!

I welcome all of your comments and read each and every one of them! Thanks for taking the time to leave one!

*Peace!

I would love to give this plate a home - what a great piece.

I actually picked up a couple things at our Goodwill and meant to join you in your TT, but sadly I forgot. May I join you next week?

Linda said...

Please add me to your drawing for the prim plate!
I have a question about the silverplate. How do you clean the marker pen price off without damaging the finish?

Kim, I would love to be entered in your drawing for the plate! I love saltbox houses and have started 'collecting' for my forever home when DH retires from the USMC. That plate would find a well loved place in my home.

It has been fun catching up on your blog and seeing your great finds.

I love the silver pieces that you pick up on your thrift shop days. I love the patina of the silver too, but then my DD keeps telling me that it's dirty and before I know it she's got the silver cloths out and is cleaning it. Hmmmm, wonder what else I can get her to clean! LOL

It's always fun to see your weekly finds. My wife and I both enjoy seeing these. We have even been taking to some of the local re-sale shops around here to see what kind of treasures we can rescue. Great stuff.
