Look at what I found. All this pretty red and a round mirror too. It's all my friend's fault.
I haven't made time to go seriously thrifting for a long time. So Sunday I called my friend M. We have been friends and best thrifters for over 40 years.
Hey M, turn around so my friends can see you.
She gets so involved in her search you know.
You may be hearing more from her soon I think we may have a new blogger here. She has been reading my blog and spent an entire evening blog hopping. Sound familiar. AND THEN, she said I think I have an idea for a blog name. I'll let you know as soon as she makes the leap.
So anyway, back to the subject. I found so many great things. First this silver bowl/candlestick? It is very heavy silver and has such lovely detail on the handles. I need some ideas about what to put in the bowl after I get candles in it. Flowers maybe or candy hearts for Valentine's Day?
Found this red and white doily I thought would look great with my Valentine decorations. It has little curly piggy tails now but once I starch and iron it I think it will lay nicely.
Remember the red votives that Home Interiors had back in the what 70's or 80's. I decided to start hunting for some as at Christmas some of my candles dripped on my tablecloth and one even on to the carpet. OK, I should have been paying attention. But thought these votives would do the trick. Now I can sit and yak and not worry about the candles.
Also found 6 ruby red sherbert dishes. I thought they would be fun for ice cream or putting candy and nuts out for guests.
Take a look at the two set of old drawers I found. I am going to put them in my sewing room to hold all the little things and maybe some of my thread which is now in a big pickle jar. They are kind of an ugly brown with green paint showing thru. Don't know if I will leave them as they are or perhaps paint them cream and put on glass knobs. What do you think?
Have to run now and clean up my treasurers so I can play with them. Hope you have fun hunting too.
