Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   What a lovely week it has been. I don't have many thrifty finds to show for it because I was busy spending time with my sister who came down this weekend to visit me and  while she was here she got................ENGAGED!!! It was such a special weekend. I am so excited to be a part of her wedding and see her marry her best friend.

Here a the few lovelies that came home with me. 

This is by far my most favorite find! My first piece of the Pyrex friendship pattern. This beautiful lid was hiding on the very bottom of a shelf at Salvation Army. I was jumping up and down when I found this beauty. I got this awesome piece for my collection for $1.50!!! This was a happy day!

At goodwill I found this wonderful Rachel Ashwell book about giving presents, which is one of my favorite things to do.

 This is the beautiful site you see right when you open the book

It is full of beautiful ideas, and I only paid $3.99 for it.

Another wonderful book on gift giving. I guess the same person decided to not give gifts anymore and donated all of their books. Anyways this one was $2.99, and it has really practical gift wrapping ideas using unusual sources.

Hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!

Here are the lovely sites I enjoy linking up with. We get to share more fun that way:

  1. I love the Pyrex 'friendship' pattern. I have never seen any of the lovely pyrex patterns in the flesh (one day... sigh). I understand the excitement :-) Oh and those books look so inspiring. Great to hear about your sister too.

  2. I love the Rachel Ashwell book! I like Rachel Ashwell anything!

  3. Such a pretty lid, makes a great artwork.
    and those books look like good ones. x

  4. Oh I've never seen that pattern -- love the colors! So bright and cheery!

  5. I think the gift box made from tickets is so unusual and creative. You found some treasures this week.
