A Few Things

This week I found quite a few wonderful things using another "30% off everything coupon" at the thrift store.

Some china things:

Fine bone china demi tasse and parakeet were the most expensive
items of the week at $15 each.
The small bird was a mere $2

Some kitchen things:

The uber-cute swan cookie jar (I use it to store tea) was $6
and awesome Japanese cow cream and sugar $2
(I've always wanted a set of these!)

Some garden things:

Wood basket and squirrel were a just a buck apiece.
The adorable ducks planter $3

And even a few shiny things for my Studio:

The English confectionery box in the back has a lion head on the top;
so I HAD to have it at $5.
The silver coffeepot was $6, silver cream and sugar on stand $3,
$1.50 for the silver tray, 30 cents for the salt shaker, $2 for the frame
and $10 for the railway pocket watch.

Thrifting... It's A Good Thing.
