I found this lovely framed print for a couple of bucks. Her creator is Florence Kroger. The frame is gorgeous.
I actually found this Mexican beauty a month or so ago at the Unique Thrift in Louisville. In line, a woman said to me in Spanish that she thought it was quite nice. I love it too.
Two sweet, little bird prints
Not to be out done by Mother Mary, I found this paint-by-number roses at an Indiana GW (and it was actually cheap!)
Last, I have future plans for this wooden house. I will add it to the mountainous project pile.
I had a really good thrift week and weekend. I ended up spending Friday helping my mom move furniture to her barn (she bought new) and I found some treasures I remember as a child. One was a metal box once used on a tractor to hold tools. It used to have hens-n-chicks in it and sat below my childhood bedroom window for as long as I can remember. It's old. My husband said, "Did you use it as a step when you would sneak out of your bedroom window? Is that why it has memories?" Maybe.
I also ended up with two older Mexican pottery planters in somewhat worn condition, but I have plans for those as well. She gave me three old metal drawers and a metal container that held something that was made in West Germany. I'll show the freebies in the future after their transformations. However, I will let you see the wonderful German dish set I picked up in WV. It is JENAer Glas (a precursor to Pyrex) and I believe it is from the mid-60's (going by a trademark site I found). It was marked $39.99 for the set, but it had been marked down, just minutes before I arrived, to $8.99. I love it and it will now be my primary set in Louisville (I plan to purge my current sets).
