Time to share a few more recent finds and treasures. My dear little mother was feeling well enough to stop at a couple of garage sales with me yesterday morning. It was good for her to get out and enjoy people and the fun of shopping in a few driveways around town. I found a Better Homes and Gardens Landscaping book, a magnetic drawing board for my grandchildren to enjoy when they visit and a couple of books I was delighted to find.
Recent Friday Finds and thrifting adventures have been successful. One Friday I found a beautiful table runner at a garage sale. It was perfect for my table.A stop at the Goodwill when my out-of-state family was here was fun. We enjoyed being together and discovering special treasures for each of us. I quickly spotted this little basket.My cousin thoroughly searched along the aisle filled with dishes, glassware and assorted serving pieces. She found two little yellow baking dishes for me. I can imagine enjoying warm potpies by the fireside this winter. With my sweetheart.A few days ago I stopped by the Goodwill again and was surprised to find this cup and saucer on the shelf for an incredibly low price. When I saw the price I assumed it was made in Japan. Wrong! Bone china -made in England. I knew it was meant for me! After all, it has yellow roses on it.I think it's time to brew some tea, sit down with a good book and rest for awhile. Maybe I'll have mint tea today. In my new teacup.
