Thrift Finds - We Just Keep 'em Coming...

Just a few finds today - I absolutely love the colors on this tablecloth:

Another colorful item - this large metal tray:

A crocheted afghan and two pillow covers to "cozy up" an old, funky sofa bed:

A pretty and shapely lamp:

Aqua fish with bubbles, a leaf-shaped California pottery dish, and a nice hand-painted mirror:

A neat expandable "bamboo" metal trivet made in Italy - just in time for the holiday table:

Pristine and fabulous decks of playing cards in their original case:
And this last item isn't a thrift find at all. After I did my post about Bon Ami, a nice representative of the company contacted me and said they enjoyed my post and they would like to send me a little gift! That's the first time anything like this ever happened to me, and I was really tickled! I received this super-cute tote bag, some soap samples and a gift card for Bon Ami products. So nice!

(Some of the items shown above are for sale in the shop - or will be. Please feel free to e-mail me if you are interested in something, and I will let you know whether it is for sale.)

Love your little fish with his bubbles! Makes me want to get my bathroom redo finished. I am going to be using blue tones, since I just got some vintage barkcloth drapes with passion flowers on them to use in there. How nice of Bon Ami, I am sure they appreciated your bit of free advertising! Love T

That's so cool that the Bon Ami company saw your blog post and sent you the bag filled with goodies. How nice of them.
Love all the "finds". I think that my Mom had that tablecloth when we were kids. I think it was for a round table outside. It's pretty and nostalgic.
I still have the Betty Crocker New Dinner for two cookbook. I have had it for 45 yrs. and I still use it because we were 2 people when we started and we are two people again, now, in our retirement.

Think I'll do a post on M&M's. Do you think maybe I'll get a gift pack in the mail?

Love all your finds. Especially that table cloth! Can't wait to see it.

Gotta go now, headed to my friend Heidi's for lunch soon!
