Thrifty Crazy

bloggy 63
I honestly thought I would be a good girl this last couple of weeks and stay away from the GW.  I have really got to curb my obsession.  I need and want to stay home on my days off and get some projects finished at home.
So as usual on my way to somewhere else my car just decides to take a little side trip and next thing I know I am in the parking lot at the GW.  Oh brother, this is a sickness.

Found these great dessert dishes and one small bowl, they were all $.99 each.

they compliment this other pattern by the same manufacturer that I picked up a while ago.

Ok this tea cup was all alone on the shelf and I had this yellow saucer at home already, they needed to be together.  The teacup was $1.99, the saucer I got a while ago for $.59.  A match for sure.bloggy 30

Ok this sweet cup and saucer were $2.59 or something like that also at the Hospice attic, I just thought it was so precious, had to come home with me.  the picture below is the other side of the cup.

Ok these things are an impromptu gathering of some items I have been collecting in anticipation of changing some things in our Master.  I have to paint the walls in there and then my transformation can begin.  Very soon I hope.

The white urn, the aqua blanket, the basket, the ceramics bowls and the platter are all thrifty finds.  I am going for aqua blue and browns and creams in the bedroom and bath.

The bowls are the most recent finds, the floral one was $.25 and the ruffled one $.59.  The platter I bought at Marshall’s for $2.99.  The leather like box under the bowls a thrifty gW find from months ago.

This bowl is so pretty, don’t you think? 
Ok this is sort of a thrifty find, I bought it before Easter at Ross.  It was $39.  I have gotten oodles of compliments from everybody.  It is my perfect summer bag and goes with everything just about.

  1. My car drove to a thrift today and I bought plates! How to stop this addiction? I love the plates you found. I think the colors you are going to redo your bedroom/bath in are gorgeous and very 'in' right now!! Love your purse, such fun to have a summer bag that is just the best!

  2. Soooo many goodies...luv that sweet silver baby cup...the aqua bowls and those beautiful plates!


  3. Oh I love all your goodies! Be blessed. Cindy

  4. Wow!! Score another good day for you at Goodwill! Love all your finds.

  5. Look at all the great stuff you found when your car turned in there all on it's own. Thanks for coming by. The wall color in my bedroom is Davenport Tan by Benjamin Moore.

  6. Marla, the back of the hutch is painted green and glazed.

  7. Marla, thank you for living a comment on my blog. I can't believe you got that floral bowl for $.25. Love it.

  8. I'm sorry, but I think we owe it to Goodwill to pop in every time we're in the area, because you never know what you might be missing! That's a lovely set of dishes, and I love that platter too, which reminds me that I need to pop into Marshalls and see what's new!

  9. Do I have to pick a favorite?? I guess it would be all the glassware. lol. Every piece. what wonderful finds. I love the white bowl with the brown and turquoise..the one with the shells in it. It's gorgeous. I love the dishes, the cups and saucers. All are in my favorite colors too. great finds!

  10. Marla you found some really beautiful things! I adore your purse. Precious!

    Blessings, ~Melissa :)
