{ Thriftin' fun yesterday }

Feeling a little cabin-feverish, MDH and I decided to go thriftin'. Lot's of folks were out and about with the same idea, as all the TS's were crowded. There was a holiday mood in the air, probably due to the change in the weather. I managed to snag some sweeties....

a couple cute mirrors...one to leave as is and one to paint white....

terra cotta punkin to paint white, of course, and a sweet Russian nesting doll. Unfortunately, all the little inside dolls are missing, but she's still cute :-)

three transfer ware salad plate...

three Fire King mugs...

sweet little cross stitch teacup and a little ceramic candle holder with roses...

a bunch of these to make some of THESE....

two Homer Laughlin plates in my favorite patterns....

a great Christmas topiary...needs a little work, but it's in the cutest shabby, chippy metal pot.

and lastly, my favorite find of the day. I've been needing a new reading lamp for some time. Here it is. The lamp is nothing to write home about, but, OH, the shade is to die for!!!!

 It's not round...more of an 8 panel oval with the front and back middle panels being wider then the rest. I love it SO much!

Got a couple more cute things, but I'm not going to show you 'cuz they're going in MY GIVEAWAY!!!
Don't forget to sign-up!
