Exciting Thrift Finds!

Hello, there!  How is your week going?  We have been so busy!  We have finished some projects and have yet to get pictures of them!  We hit some thrift shops this weekend, and two yardsales.  A new thrift store opened up closeby!  The Grand Opening was this weekend!  This new thrift store is also right by the Goodwill and another thrift store that we frequent.  We have seen the Coming Soon signs for a while now and have been patiently waiting, luckily we were going to the Goodwill and the other thrift and saw all the balloons!  We ended up buying three goodies from there, but didn't take pictures yet!  Anyway, we have been meaning to show you some things that we have found recently.

We rarely ever find Pyrex at the thrift stores!  And imagine our surprise when we found one of our favorite prints...We were so excited, and smiling ear to ear!!  Ahh...The simple things that make us happy!  
This print is another favorite...We found it at the same thrift!!  Both are in such great condition.
We found this sweet strawberry spoon rest at Goodwill...
We were so happy to find this adorable owl ornament, we just love owls!  Speaking of owls, we have several owl things that we have yet to show on our blog.  The tiny wreaths from Woolworths will be a great addition to a project we have been working on since before Christmas!  We love the colors of the Christmas coasters from Hallmark...   
We just love the kitsch feel of this squirrel and peanut!
We hope you all are having a lovely week,
Laura and Michele

What great finds :o)
I like the pyrex patterns too - I haven't seen any like that in the UK.
Daft question - does Woolworth still exist is USA? All of the stores in the UK closed down about 18 months ago..you don't know what you'll miss 'till it's gone.

Love all of the Pyrex, and I'm crazy about the fabric that you displayed it on! Can you share where you got it? Please?!!

I believe the fabric is a Michael Miller fabric :). You should be able to find it in a google search.

I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure they are all closed.

Oh, I just love both of those Pyrex dishes!!! How wonderful that you found those! I don't think I've ever seen Pyrex at a thrift store...but I'll keep an eye out!

I have a similar squirrel and nut container that I feel with peanuts at Thanksgiving. You did well with all your goodies.

Happy Thrifting!

I LOVE the two blue pyrex dishes you found! And that little peanut is kinda cute too. Several years ago I gave my sister a whole bunch of cute "squirrel and nut" vintage finds and I wish I had kept them myself!! LOL!
