Thrifying Thursday...

Okay... so I actually went Thrifting on Saturday... but I'm posting it now!  ;)  I finally got around to taking pictures of my treasures today. I went to three stores this time. Two of them were new to me. The second one I went to was the biggest Salvation Army store I've ever seen! They had tons of stuff! On Saturday it was all 50% off too! Lucky me!

This is the first thing I found when I walked in. It's a milk glass dish shaped like a strawberry. I love it!


Here's the back of it. Such detail!  :)


I was so excited to find it because I had already found two from the set in a previous trip. Here are the three of them together.


I'm not sure if there are any more in the set or not. I just know I love them! I couldn't believe that I found the strawberry! :)

I also found this mosaic candle holder at the same shop. It has red glass, white glass, and mirror pieces. I love it! Isn't it cool?!!!  :)


I don't really collect Pyrex, but I know many people do. I couldn't pass up this find though...


It's pink!!! I've never seen a pink one! AND it has the lid! How could I pass this up? It's so vintage!  :)


Of course I found a couple more salt and pepper shakers to add to my collection. This first set is simple with beautiful flower bouquets tied with pink ribbon...


The next set is perfect for Thanksgiving! I love the colors and detail!  :)


I also found a bundle of red felt for only $2. I'm sure I'll be needing some of this for Christmas projects!  :)


Are you wondering if I found any vintage sheets??? Of course I did! Here is the 'leaning tower of pizzazz'!


I couldn't believe I found so many in one day. Especially because the big store didn't have any. The first set is complete with top, bottom and two king size pillow cases.  :)


I love the pattern and the colors! It's a smaller print so it will look great cut up!


I especially love the border print on the flat sheet and pillowcases. Isn't it awesome?!!!


The next sheet has a great large border pattern and awesome coloring...


Here's the detailing up close...



This next sheet is my favorite! It has lots of white background with these beautiful yellow, blue and pink flowers in many sizes.


This sheet has a great border and awesome colors of green, teal, pink and purple... with a touch of yellow.  :)


This next sheet has orange and yellow flowers on a white background. If you look closely you can see a few pink flowers thrown in here and there. Cute!  :)


A yellow sheet! This is the first colored, patterned sheet I've found. It's not really my color but is so vintage looking. I couldn't pass it up! The funny thing is that I picked up the fitted sheet and put it in my cart. I was looking at some other things and glanced over towards the linens, and a woman was holding the matching flat sheet up looking at it. It caught my eye. It looked beautiful and I wanted it real bad. I kept trying not to stare... all the while hoping she would put it back. I never saw that one. How did I miss it? She was studying it really hard trying to decide whether to get it or not. She ended up in front of me in line, clutching the sheet in her arms. I was sad.  :(  At least I got the other one though!  :)


The next two sheets are for a project I have in mind for my daughter. She loves the green in the sheet below, so I've been collecting vintage sheets in various shades of this green.


I also picked up this crib sheet for her. Yes it has duckies on it! Yes it's for my daughter's project! Yes she's 21! I can't help it if she has a thing for ducks! She loves them! It's fun for me as I like to pick up cute one's I come across.  :)


This last print is actually a curtain panel. I fell in love with the print and colors! I'm sure I'll find something to use it for.  :)


Well... that's it. Those were the treasures I found last weekend. I'm not sure if I'll get out to look for more this weekend or not. I hope you enjoyed sharing them with me. Maybe you'll find some treasures of your own!  :)

Until next time...
Cherise  :)

I have the pear and the strawberry milk glass dishes also (I have a terrible weakness for milk glass). I believe I have also seen a grape dish and an apple... :)
