Weekend wrap up


Thursday night, I was going through some things and found this picture frame I forgot we had. It belonged to Allen's grandmother. I think I will paint the frame and add chalkboard paint to the glass.


I stopped at a little thrift shop on Thursday after work and found this pitcher for $3.00. I just put on here Wednesday that I wanted a glass pitcher for lemonade and then found this. It was meant to be.


I had the day off Friday so I decided to hit some yard sales and antique stores. Afterwards, I went to Walmart and the grocery store. I love my Thirty-One products when I shop. Was able to carry all my purchases in my new bags and only had to make one trip from the car to the house when I got home. 


I found this beautiful vintage table cloth for just $1.00. It has some stains on it but I didn't buy it for a table. I am going to make some throw pillows from it. My friend did one and I loved it. 


I picked up this little pillow for just $1.00 as well. 


I think the two will go well together for pillows for the trunk at the foot of my bed.


I took my Boscul peanut butter glasses to a local antique store to see if she wanted to buy them. She did so we did a store credit for part of them and cash for the rest. With the store credit, I found this baby face milk jug that Hubby has been looking everywhere for. I got it for him and put it in his Easter basket. He was thrilled with it.


I love the Pyrex casserole bowls. Town and Country is one of my favorite patterns. I collect it in the brown and in the yellow with brown patterns. I hope to find more pieces for my collection this summer. I did find this one on Saturday. Hubby made the baked beans in it for Easter dinner. 


I also collect the Colonial Mist pattern and these smaller bowls are one of my favorite items. I was glad to find on in this pattern.


At a yard sale, I found this little yellow gold candy dish. I have one just like it in milk glass at work. This one is going in my office/craft room at home. Of course, there will Junior Mints in it.


I saw this little bowl and just fell in love with it for .25 cents. When I got home, I had forgotten I had one just like it. Oh well, now I have two. I put this one on my dresser to put my watch and rings in.


These colors in this cup are the favorite colors of a good friend of mine. She collects coffee cups so I just had to get this one for her.


My master bath has a beach theme so this little seashell dish was perfect to put cotton balls in on my counter. 


In Sunday School class on Sunday, we made these little Easter baskets for our craft and filled them with candy. I can tell the ones who really enjoy the crafts because I hear them discussing the "pattern" they are going to create with their foam stickers. It was so neat to see the different patterns they came up with.


After church, Hubby and I relaxed around the house all day. Then he fixed us an awesome Easter dinner. We vegged out the rest of the evening. It was a really relaxing day and I'm ready to hit the work load first thing this morning.

I love that pitcher! What an amazing find for only $3. I have a few of them that I have picked up at sales and the thrifts and I use them daily. I was at an antique mall the other day and there was a seller who had an entire shelf full of them for $28.00 each. Sadly, I walked away empty handed.

Glad you had a good weekend!
