More Rainy Day Thrift Finds!

Well, it was a week of rain and more rain. We did have pockets of sunshine. It's been hard trying to work on my painting projects with this cold weather, but I'll get them done.

My youngest boy, Lance, has come down with a cold, and I'm still feeling semi-miserable from the one I'm still trying to get over. And to avoid getting sick, my husband is currently sleeping in Lance's bed during this time. It's cute. And despite that two out of four in our house are sick, I did slip in some thrift shopping time this week.

I've got some wonderful buys. I especially love discount days at our local thrift stores. Here's what I got this week.

I plan on painting & covering the hamper.

I love the Fragonard style! This tureen was a steal! I was thinking about using it in my bathroom as a soap container.

I was in fabric heaven. They will make great pillows and purses. The tarnished silverware will get a new life too after a good polishing.

This basket will be great for lost socks!

In addition to thrifting at the thrift shops, I decided to stop by Home Goods. I haven't been to Home Goods in months (more like 6-8 months). Boy, I missed the place. Every time I go there, I want to buy the place out. I had to refrain myself. There was a lot of beautiful stuff there. But I did buy the following:

I love the hydrangea candlelabra! I think it's perfect for my future sunroom. The cloche was a steal!! It was on clearance for $5 and it was mine. Last, the transferware! I've always had a thing for transferware. When I saw them, I knew I had to have them, so I bought four each. They were very inexpensive. My husband did cringe because I love beautiful dishes.

It's been a good week despite illnesses and rainy weather. I hope I will get at least a couple of days next week to do some painting and some backyard weeding. Oh, and if it doesn't rain this coming Saturday, I'm going to enjoy myself at the De Anza flea market. Maybe I'll see you there.
