More Homestate Finds!

Only a few days left here in California...
we've had such fun visiting with my family,
and the thrifting and flea market treasures have been plentiful.
Once I'm home, it'll be fun sharing more of the things I've found
with you, as well as my favorite find from this trip!

Here is a few more things I've found here and there...

A sunny yellow Pyrex dish and lid.
To be honest, I'm not sure what a greatars price for Pyrex is, really...
this was five dollars, which I thought was fair.

This beautiful framed embroidered piece was so cheap at only a dollar.
I could see it in an antique store for much more.
I'm baffled sometimes by what gets priced high and what low at thrifts...
not that I'm complaining in this regard!

Cute little vintage sign for my kitchen.

This is a really cute book called "Apron on, Apron off."
I though my daughter would like it, too--she's at the perfect
aprons/tea parties/baking cookies age.

A stuffed kangaroo mommy and joey,
also falling into the "daughter would love this" category.

This is one of my really favorite finds down here--
such adorable fabrics and it was only $3!

Mugs like this are simply too cute to pass up.

3 must be my lucky number, because that's how much
this lovely madonna figurine was, too...I love it.

On the bottom is scratched "Hattie '54."
I love that personal touch, and it's cool knowing when it's from.

Thanks for taking a look!
Stop by Her Library Adventures for more fun!

Such bright and beautiful finds - ty for sharing them w/ us! And that 'Hattie 54' - love that! I especially love to pick up books where I've found dedications :)

So many favorites in this post! I love the Madonna (I have a sizable collection that I have had to stop adding to, however, she would have definitely been bought by me too!) I also have that mug and it is one of my favorites. The kangeroo is adorable! I can't wait to see all of the CA treasures!

Ooooo, I'm loving the blog makeover, Marty!

You do always find the neatest stuff...that quilt is my favorite...

I have always wondered who determines the pricing at those stores, never seems to have rhyme or reason :)

I bet it will be nice to get back to cool ocean breezes!

Apron on, Apron off looks darling. I'm looking for a copy for myself now. The mug is also terrific.
