A Few Fun Finds...


It's been awhile since I've done any treasure hunting at the thrift stores, so today I stopped at Goodwill and found a few goodies!  Look at this huge basket!  I love the rustic look and think I'll have plenty of uses for it!  Another fun find was this galvanized watering can~ it has a little different shape than others I've found, and the long spout is great!


This large platter was the best find of the day!   It is a Copeland Spode piece in the green Valencia pattern!


The edge decoration reminds me of Belleek and I love the delicate berry and leaf decoration...



I plan to use this funny old book for the graphics...


Every page is full of trivia questions...


It's always fun to do a little thrift store shopping!  Hope you're having a little fun this week, too!

  1. Love all your finds especially the basket. Lots of good uses for that. I can't believe you found that platter at Good Will.

  2. I love that galvanized watering can. What a great shape. I can see all of this used for holiday decorating (and the book in your next collage). Glad you were able to stop and do a little treasure hunting!

  11. Great finds! I have to say that our thrift and goodwill stores around here are pathetic. Every time I stop by, there is nothing even remotely interesting. I stopped at one today. And there was nothing. We must be lacking in thrift store genes around here!

    Looks like you found some real treasures! My favorite is the watering can, hard to believe someone would want to get rid of it! And the platter is gorgeous! I'll be hitting up thrift stores more now that garage sale season is over:)
