A Thrifting I will go.....

Hello, everyone...

we are still having cloudy, lovely days...a tiny bit cool one day
but 70+ degrees the next....

Summer time is trying hard to get here and I am more than ready.
Springtime here in West Texas if full of wind and I am glad to get it over with.

I stopped at a thrift store on my way to the grocery store today....
I am looking for a killer outdoor conversation patio set for our girl...
she needs one for the deck at her lake house.
I guess we waited too late in the spring to start looking because
every thing we find is sooo expensive.
sooo.
was hoping to find a great one at the thrift store...or consignment shop.
no luck so far.



it seems i can always find something WHITE that i love at the thrift stores...

this is a great piece..heavy...in perfect shape for $2.


A piece like this has so many fun uses....

 I really fell in love with this large metal tray....

and I didn't even notice what was on the back until I got home...

made in England...

I love anything made in England.
(some of you may remember that I was
 IN LUV with
TONY BLAIR.)
lol 

A really nice large tray for
$2.00


 I love using large trays on this pretty metal table....
it can go outside....


and works beautifully inside as well....
(that little tiny white dish is another story for a post...)


Put them all together, along with my thrifted COFFEE pot and mug....
well...
and a plate of warm cookies
and I had a winner.



I wonder so often...
why did someone get rid of such great pieces...
and then I remember...
"One man's trash is another man's treasure..."
and
I believe it.
