Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow thrifters and Friends,

    It was another long week because I was sick again, but I believe I am on the mend, FINALLY!! Here are the lovelies that came home with me this week. This weeks treasure hunt finds started almost the day after I posted last weeks post.

I found this beautiful doiley last Sunday at an Estate sale. I paid $2.00 for it, and it looks so lovely on my new kitchen table.

Mr Joyful Thrifter went to the swap meet today, and was so sweet to pick out some very cute treasures for me. He got the lace doilies for $0.50 and the pink napkin was $0.25. 

He spotted this wonderful whale and bought him for me for $0.25. I just think he is so cute. 

 Little Paris plate for $0.50

I am glad I stopped quickly at goodwill today because I found this Pyrex and it is not a pattern that I have yet. I paid $3.99 for it, and I thought was a fine price for a piece I do not have. 

At the Salvation army I found this sweet edition of Heidi. Because it was in the children's section I found out that they they sell them 4 for $1.00, so I went and picked out three other books. 

Here are the other three children's books I found. 

My last find of the day was this sweet mug for $1.19. It is a large bowl size mug perfect for soup. 

I washed it all up and put some delicious strawberries in it to enjoy. 

Hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!

  1. You found some good things this week. I have some of the brown Pyrex and like it...Forest Fantasy I think? anyway those strawberries look yummy! Hope you are feeling better. Hugs, Linda

  2. Been eating strawberries like crazy lately & keeping them in the same size as your Woodland Pyrex container.

    That whale is darling. I love it!

  3. Your treasures are beautiful!! I love the large doily on your new dining table. It is so pretty. It looks yellow on my computer, is that right? If it is that is so unique, I don't think I have ever seen a doily like that in the color yellow! Your other doiles are so pretty too. Your hubby is a good thrift-er!

  4. Oh my, the whale is the most beautiful thing! I love it! ~Trudy

  12. That whale is ADORABLE. I would put him on my desk and smile everything I looked his way :)

  13. You know, I find more joy in a good
    thrift or junk item than I would
    going to some expensive store and
    paying full
    Great Post
