Finds - Yet Again!

Well, it was nearly a month ago now, but these are more of the things I found during my birthday weekend visits to thrift shops and yard sales. A Jack-O-Lantern mask, a pretty leaf pin, a brightly colored fabric remnant, and a gold Hall China mug to go with the creamer I found a while back!

A Vernon Ware Early California platter in turquoise, an enamel poppy pin, a string of "pearls", a restaurant china cup and saucer, a set of Vera napkins, some little baubles I'm hoping to make into earrings, and a bright fabric sample I would love to make a pillow out of:

An embroidered souvenir apron from Portugal, a painted napkin holder, a couple of black frames, another floral fabric sample that is pillow-worthy:

The same fabric sample as a backdrop, an orange speckled pottery pitcher from Italy, a set of three yellow-speckled restaurant china plate/platters, and that ceramic napkin holder in the front has a turkey on the other side:

Christmas stuff! An adorable card box, a tin, a tray, a mug, and a tea towel:

And three more movies!
Better late than never posting about these, I guess. I know some of my favorite posts by other bloggers are theirs where they show their latest finds - so I'm hoping maybe you enjoy seeing mine, too!

Great finds! I was going to list all the ones I liked but I like too many! he he

I love that movie Shakespeare in Love, haven't seen it in awhile.

Do you have a giant house? Just asking. :O) You must have endless storage space.
