Thrift Finds: Miscellaneous

Some recent thrift finds are what I am sharing today.
First up is this linen tea towel with cute koalas that could also be used as a wall hanging - they won't mind.
They'd be happy to hang around any old place:
A Pyrex Friendship design lid, three great mugs, a yellow egg slicer to go with my identical orange one, and another, smaller Pyrex lid:
These mugs - how could I pass them up at thirty cents each? I love these colorful vintage flowers!
More stuff - another Jiffy Stitchery kit, a wooden Tiki, a hand-painted pencil holder from Mexico,  a nice tooled-leather wallet, and two colorful straw mats:
I love these drawer organizer boxes with the compartments, like the floral one below. Usually I find the quilted satin ones. I have never found one like this before, and I was excited when I saw it!
 I also found four bright orange napkin rings, and on the same day at a different store, four orange linen napkins to go with them:
A needlepoint wall hanging.....
...with pretty poppies and daisies:
A very nice cheese board tray with a pretty tile insert:
I also found a lovely hand-hooked rug, most likely from the 70's or 80's. It didn't look too great when I found it, but after a nice wash, it looks great:
It has such nice, rich colors, doesn't it?
And last of all, I found a number of nice packages of  vintage skinny taper candles:
 That's all for today - but you know there will always be more where these came from!

Nice finds, especially the drawer divider, wallet and the rug. I would like to see more of the quilt under the candles too, if you ever get a chance. Love T

OMG Heidi I found a Pyrex casserole & lid in Friendship this past Friday! I'd never seen it before and here it is on your blog :) Mine is in white opaque glass, so pretty. Usually I find things without lids or vice versa, so I was thrilled to get a 'whole' one.
Cheers

Wow, what a haul! I adore the mugs, cheese tray, pyrex lid, tiki and koala fabric!

I found a tiki recently and fell in love with it so I bought it! Don't quite know where to put it though. :o)
