It's Vintage Thingie Thursday
and
Thrift Store Thursday.
I've combined them in one post.

Sit back and enjoy, then go over to

Suzanne's
and
Holly's
for more scrumptious treasures!!


This is a wonderful tall urn, with a deep red base.
Great find for $3.00.



Oh, these are not vintage, (obviously)
but a great deal at a craft sale.
$1.00 each!!!
Brand new, never out of the package.
(my best deal this week I think.) =0)



Oh, and this guy is old, old! but in pretty good shape.



And, what is this you say??
They are the bases of old ceiling lights.
I just love having things like this to re purpose,
and people practically give them away!
Hmmm, maybe good bird nest bases


.

And here is a pile of vintage.
(if i already showed this pic, sorry.
Can't keep them straight any move.)
Anyway, theses are my best vintage treasures this week.
A lot of vintage doilies, a tea pot, two old pictures, and,
yes, even the cherub is old.



And this is fun. I love tinware.
This is an old child's lunch pail.

Happy Thursday to all.

Blessings,
Barbara Jean

PS Some of these things will soon be listed on my new gift shop blog.
Check it out!!

Hi Barb...

Ohh my...you have found some wonderful treasures, my friend! I love that big urn...it would be perfect at my house...just the right colors! Hehe! Girl, those old light fixtures would be perfect stands for some of your pretty nests...I love that idea!!! Do you know...I still haven't made any nests...everytime I come over to your place for a visit...I'm reminded! This summer is already off to a busy start for me...eeekks!!! Really I guess the long, cold Colorado winters are the best time for me to get involved with projects. Right now it seems that I have to fight for any spare time! Oh my...here I am going on and on...

I just love that little chenille bunny too! Ohhh and all of your pretty doilies!!! You have so many beautiful things!!! Thank you for sharing them with us!!!

Have a terrific Thursday, my friend!

Nice! That bunny is cute - and the light fixtures could be used for something neat, I bet! I stopped by and checked out the graphics from your link - very neat. I had to bookmark it - too many to choose from! Blessings to you today!

Wonderful finds Barb!!! Don't you love finding something so ordinary and then transforming it for a new life??? You're very welcome for the bird print, I just scan it in on my scanner and save it to give away on my blog!! Hope you're having a great day sweetie ~ xxoo, Dawn

I just want to say Thank You! once again. My lil birds nest arrived today and its adorable! So cute. For now its sitting on my side table by an arrangement. And sadly in a few weeks it will have to be packed up for a move. But until then, Im going to enjoy it and then hopefully find the perfect spot for it in my new house when I get there. :) Hugs.

CC said...
