Thrift Finds Again: The Latest

Some of my favorites among my recent finds are:
The gorgeous ripple afghan I showed you a few days ago, which happens to look pretty great with the bargello-stitched pillow cover I found a while back:

A belt from the 60's (I think) with suede fringed ends, a nice planter and a vintage silk scarf:

More brightly colored enamelware plates. Why am I seemingly unable to resist these? Couldn't tell ya:

Glass hurricanes with lovely bread plates underneath by Villeroy and Boch. And that's a vintage remnant as the backdrop:

A tooled leather peacock handbag:

More candle holders! ( I know.......I know... how many candle holders does one woman need? Don't know the answer to that one, either, I'm afraid.) And the fabric remnant again:

Christmas, too - including a nice box of Shiny Brites:
A couple of ornament hanger boxes, a little glittered plastic tree and a nice pine cone tablecloth from California Hand Prints:

I probably get more excited about finding Christmas stuff than I do anything else.

Heidi, part of the reason your thrift store finds are so great is that you know how to pair them with other items to make them pop! I think I made that same afghan in 1974;) How great is that purse?! Twyla

Thank you, Twyla - that was a really sweet thing to say!

I saw this afghan the other day and meant to leave a comment - I have the exact same one, made by my beloved Nanny. She must have been a crocheting machine, because a lot of my family members have a ripple afghan. I just love it!
