More Thrifted Treasures

Oh, yes, I have managed to find a few more treasures here lately. A great yellow Pyrex refrigerator dish, a lovely platter, vintage salt and pepper set, napkins and a small embroidered cloth:
Rick-rack, and an house-shaped cookie cutter:

The cutest turtle mugs!
A wooden shutter that's hand-painted with flowers, a set of three fabulous enamelware sectioned plates, a tile trivet, and a boxed set of fondue forks plus three extras:
This great vintage linen apron was not found by me, but by my friend Jamie - and she gave it to me! Look at those yummy veggies - come on over for another luncheon salad someday soon, Jamie!
Pretty needlepoint in bright colors, bargello stitches on a pillow cover and a pretty floral in purple and orange:
And another bargello stitched pillow cover plus a bright orange velvet pillow:
I haven't actively collected Mary Engelbreit stuff for quite awhile, but I couldn't resist this cup and saucer set in the yellow and pink pattern that I love the best. And I never pass up nice brightly colored candles, even though I get a kick out of the fact that the thrift store prices are the same as - or more than - they cost when they were new. How much are they at the store these days, anyway? I haven't gotten any new for so long, I don't even know. I still think they were probably a good deal. And the little planter will look nice on an autumn table:
As usual, it is just so darned much fun to find great bargains on neat stuff!

I love the pretty yellow pyrex. I believe it matches the apron! Those turtle mugs are adorable! Love the colors. And yes, I would love to come again for lunch. Yesterday was fun. Thanks for your help. See you soon.

Love the hunt of searching out great finds at Thrift stores or Yard sales, Our favorite pastime. Guess where we got it from.... that's right, Gold Country Girl's lovely Mother Joyce!!!

Love the apron. My good friend Denise is always finding candles for practically nothing at garage sales. The other day she got 3 boxes full for 50 cents. All great finds. Love T

Wow Heidi it looks like you found some great finds. I never seem to be able to thrift any of Mary Engelbreit's stuff. I guess people just hang on to it around here.
You should come join us some Monday when we have ME Monday over on my blog. We all share our favorite Mary stuff.
Good job on the thrifting.
