Weekend Finds
 My husband creates and runs special events for the city we live in and this weekend he ran a community indoor yard sale.  I don't have any new projects to share with you today, however I wanted to share with you my fun finds.  I'm already looking forward to Summer and yard sales. 
Above is a really pretty bowl that is actually bigger in person than it looks in this picture.  I love having a bunch of different serving pieces.  This cost $2. 
 I also found on old 7Up wood crate.  This can be used for so many things. This cost $5.
 I was so happy when a lady walked in with this window.  Finally, something for the big, blank wall in our bedroom.  It's neutral, yet reflects light and adds that vintage touch I love so much.  $5 woo hoo!
 I love this little Pyrex Bowl! It was only $3.  That is a steal for Vintage Pyrex.  Right now I'm using it to hold our Keurig Coffee singles. 
Finally, my husband found 4 of these cute candle holders.  They were only .39 cents a piece.  For dinner tonight, I added some Kosher Salt to the bottom (looks like snow) put a candle on top and voila!  Faux Snow and a candle.  These candle holders will probably be showing up from time to time in many of my blog posts.  So much you can do with a candle holder. 
So, those were my weekend finds.  Happy early Christmas to me...I should just tell my husband to start a prepaid thrifting Visa for me.  *hint, hint :) 


  1. Oh my goodness, you hit the mother lode! What a bunch of great vintagey finds. I can't wait to see them in future posts!

  2. I haven't seen a Pyrex bowl like that in years. Didn't appreciate them when they were all over the place and now I wish I had one!

  3. Nice finds! Love that serving bowl and the window! WOW!

  4. Wow, some really great finds! I love the crate and that old window is very cool. I think you can't go wrong with white dishes and Pyrex is so collectable.
