Thrifting Update - The Latest

Here are some of my favorites from recent thrift shop visits.
A vintage nursery lamb print that glows in the dark, lustreware salt and pepper birds, a red pillar candle holder, a redheaded Skipper, a heavy glass frame (I put A Disney Cinderella illustration inside), and some more movies:

A nice covered pot (biscuit jar?) with "basket" handle (actually an eBay purchase),

A pretty vintage floral sheet with matching pillow case, a crochet-covered hot mat for my collection, and a bunch of books:

A great chenille bedspread - it had some stains that, I am happy to report, came out:

Another sheet, with blue roses this time, two needlepoint canvases, embroidered pillow cases, two more of my metal mug trees, a pretty little ceramic lady, and more books - vintage ones published by Whitman for my collection. I love those old books.

Now, where to put all of this stuff?

Where to put it - boy, do I know that feeling! You definitely found the right spot for the bedspread, though, and is it ever a beauty!
