Score !!

I went thrifting with friends
and now I want to show you what I found....

I collect WHITE...
WHITE anything as long as it  makes me fall in luv...

...just take a look at this  BONANZA OF BUYS.....♥
 OOO, YES....

THIS long-tall-sally caught my eye right away...
over into the cart it went.

just look at her fluted rim on top and the cute scalloped bottom..

 She's so regal and elegant
I was MORE than happy to pay $8.00 for her.
I looked around for the 3 other pieces but they weren't beside her so I thought maybe they had sold them separately 

when I got up to the check out,
the fella there said,
"Oh, no, ma' can't buy just this one piece..."

"But, I couldn't find any others that I thought went with it"
"Can I just buy this one for the $8 ?" 
"Oh, no ma'am.....we can't break the set up"
"I'll help you look for the others....." 

So, he found THIS BEAUTY on another shelf....
"Here, ma'am....another piece"
Oh, my goodness...
my heart went pitter pat when he handed this beautiful jar to me...
I believe this is a BISCUIT JAR....
is it ...??

Then, on yet another shelf two aisles down, 
he said, " Here, ma' must be another piece...."

tall SUGAR BOWL....???
or JAM JAR...??? 

It's adorable with the precious STRAWBERRY and LEAVES on the lid...
and a slot for a pretty spoon.
It is surely meant to hold JAM... STRAWBERRY JAM...

He looked and looked for that 4th piece and I said 
"Please, just forget the 4th problem"
and he said,
" Ok, Ma'am....if you take just the 3 pieces, that will be only $7...."

Here's the thing....
none of the other pieces were marked as part of a set...
they ea had their own price marked on the bottom...
♥ ya think he was just being EXTRA NICE....??


LIFE is so GRAND.....

I found this next piece a few days before our shopping trip...


I almost went to my knees when I saw this beauty...

WHO would donate this to GOODWILL...??

It's so pretty.

and again, a scalloped edge around the bottom...

The lid has this crack across the entire tip...
it goes all the way thru.
I may just add some glass glue to the inside of the lid to keep things in place.

Since I won't be using this tureen for anything other than PRETTY
I'll not worry about the crack...

What I WILL do, tho, is LOVE this pretty handle.


Yep, it's been  VERY good thrifting of late.

My thrifting partner.....

 This is DONNA LUKE, a Facebook friend.
She lives in California but was in Lubbock  visiting family....
she had a friend with her and I was meeting my friend, Martha....
 so  we all met for lunch and a bit of thrifting.
It was a great afternoon...such a treat to meet her.

I bought her lunch...
she bought me a gift that I will tell you about a little later...

THANKS, DONNA, for giving me the chance to meet and spend
a little time with was so fun.


  1. Everything is just beautiful. Have a beautiful day!

  2. Fun day all round!!!!!!

    Btw, if I make your blog Full Size Screen, I can see the cute background at the edges. I had not make it Full Size Screen before.

    Have you told your Dear Readers that they can do this "magic"?

    On my Mac, I look to top right hand corner and click on the little "arrows". Don't remember about how to do it, on a Pc.

    Just sayin'.....

    Happy November hugs,

  3. Morning BJ,

    What a FIND! The "Sally" is a chocolate pot, I believe. Thanks for giving this pretty thing my name.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  4. Wonderful white! I love white as well, as it is so easy to include in decorating.

  5. Major score BJ!!! All have tons of personality and charm. How much I love the adorable strawberry handle,

  6. Love your finds! I have the same pitcher - it is so graceful. I love any dishes that are white or cream - one of my many addicctions.


  7. Well, you certainly did well on your hunt. I love every piece you found.

  8. Beautiful collection, and op-shops, hospice shops or goodwill shops, the most wonderful places to look for those special pieces. They have been a treasure for someone in their past, now yours to enjoy.

  9. BJ, The white pieces are all gorgeous. I like the strawberry jam jar a lot but the tall vase is really nice. That was nice to get all the pieces. Sylvia D.

  14. I'm swooning along with you!! I love finding white things especially with a gold trim. Love it!!!! You always make me want to get up and decorate.

  15. That sales clerk was being very nice to you BJ. What a great find. I really like the tall jug and am wondering if it is for keeping celery in it in the fridge. Hm. What do you think? It would make a very pretty vase though. Have a great week!
