Fun, Thrifty Finds

I took Friday off to do all the yearly doctor visits. Poked, prodded, vaccinated x 3, drained of blood, X-rayed, starved, etc. Sooo, when I was done, I headed for a caramel macchiato and the garage sales! It is a beautiful, windy warm day here. Leaves are flying, and next week will probably be full fall color. I had fun!!

Six of these little plates for $4. It was in the original wrapping so I was happy to see there were all different patterns. 

Wool throw, brown plate, and little silver tray.

Love this little tray, very heavy too. 

I picked up two of these cute pumpkin buckets for $1 each and I have always wanted a red check table cloth. It just says "picnic" to me!

And Santa Claus is coming to town home with me!

I have been picking up these Fitz and Floyd plates, now I have about 5, and he was $5.He looks a little cross-eyed. 

I sure had crossed eyes for as long as I looked at some Spode Woodland dishes at an estate sale. They were  full ebay price at this sale, so I am holding off for tomorrow at 50% off. Execpt I am going out of town at the crack of dawn to go visit daughter #2 for the weekend. Maybe I can get daughter #1 to be there at 9 when they open. (wink wink) And if the dishes aren't there, then it wasn't meant to be! I'll still be happy with what I got today.

I wish I could find some deals like that. Wow. I love the colours on the Fitz & Floyd pieces. They are always so much more rich than other companies.

It's nice to be rewarded with some fabulous finds after a day of yearly exams! You certainly made out with your finds. I just love your treasures, especially the brown transferware plate, little silver tray and tartan throw.

You found some good items at very reasonable prices and that is what it is all about. The brown transfer ware plate is very pretty. Enjoy the lovely weather and the rest of the weekend.-------Shannon
