Just A Few Little Treasures....

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are having some better thrifting luck than me this week.  I went to a few Goodwill's around my city both yesterday and today and I kid you not, I did not see one single piece of Pyrex.  There is a major shortage going on here.  So Sister, you are not missing anything.  I promise.  In the meanwhile, here are a few of my recent finds....
I found this turquoise fan shaped pottery vase at the Piccadilly Flea Market the last time I went. It is marked Delpha on the bottom along with 3-'57.  I don't think that Delpha is a brand.  I am pretty sure that it is the name of the person who made it.  My husband, Brian found this Pink Daisy divided dish sans lid at an antique store for 6 bucks.  I already have it with the lid but he knew not to pass up a piece of pink Pyrex in perfect condition.  He's learning.
A few months ago, I found this Oregon State Capital carafe at Goodwill.  A few days ago, I found all of the glasses at SVDP.  I am a huge collector of vintage drinkware but these will have to go on eBay.  I'm running out of cabinet space.  Unless you want them, Sister?
Here are some vintage cookbooks I picked up here and there.  Okay, now for a little venting.  See the two on the top?  Well evidently these were collectible and vintage enough for the animal rescue thrift store to put in a locked case.  But why in the world would they put huge bright orange price stickers directly on the front cover?  Although I tried very carefully to remove them, they still peeled some of the paper off.  I tried to cover up the marks with a marker but you can still see them. Oh well.  They are still cute.
Some cute trays that I picked up at an estate sale.  The top one is actually a set of 5.  I got all 6 trays for $1.00.
More estate sale goodies.  I was extra excited to find the sifter because it has a turquoise handle!
And some SUPER CUTE Gurley candles for a quarter apiece!  Not bad considering their original price was ten cents!

Now, onto something completely un-thrifting related

This readers is what my son, Alex, ate for breakfast.  A huge slab of homemade strawberry cheesecake.  FOR BREAKFAST!  If I didn't love him so much, I'd hate him.

Until next time.....


  1. What Great finds! Someday in the not so distant future i'd like to meet you sisters you gals seem like fun people!

    1. That sounds like a plan to us! We will have to try and make that happen. We have family in Dallas that we visit with quite often so it may not be too difficult to meet up at all :-)

  2. Sister, I didn't know about this Oregon Carafe until now! I would love it, but Matt says I can't have any more glassware :*( He is such a fun sucker!

  3. Love the trays- and the price! It is annoying when price stickers are attached directly to paper, or placed over a maker's mark. It takes careful maneuvering and luck to remove them.
