Thrifty and Vintage Thursday


This is neither a thrifty or vintage find,
but I had to show you what I got for
our anniversary yesterday.
A peach colored rose,
See's Chocolate covered caramels, Yuuuum!
and a G. C. for a European facial!!!
(I got him new T-shirts!) =0))



Scott got the best Thrifty find this week.
He went to the G.W. with me,
and found this like brand new
NIV Study Bible.
Retail Price on back was $44.95!

G.W. Sticker price $3.99!

Oh, he wanted me to make sure you saw all the tabs on it!
Guess what he is doing right now. =0)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are a couple of goodies i found:

3 vintage framed flower prints.
All shabby and ready to go in the store.




And this.....


really cool......

car box!
(or would that be a box car?)


Isn't it great?
I cannot figure out for sure if it is old,
or what it is made out of.
It is heavy, and almost seems like glass.
Whether it is old or new,
or whatever it is made of,
I just thought it was soooo cool.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm hookin' up with these great blogs.

Go check out all the other fun treasures others have posted.

I will absolutely go OFF my Weight Watcher Diet to eat ANY kind of See's Candy there is.

I love it. I'm jealous you have it and I don't. :(

Happy Day sweet friend. Love the rose.
