And then she thrifted . . .

Finally I have some thrift worthy pictures to share. I found some goodies in my last couple of trips to Baltimore.



Vera napkins, set of 4 - 45 cents each: I love the daisy design!

Ransburg copper canisters - $5 for the set of 4: how rare to find a canister set in tact and I looked up Ransburg online and it seems to be pretty popular but most pieces have a graphic design to them and are not as plain as these. Anyone familiar with this maker?

Limoges (USA) bowl - $2.50: I just thought this was pretty though I think the Limoges USA may be a little collectable but not as much as real French Limoge.

mini muffin tin - $1: I always pick up bakeware especially when it's brand new

lace pillow shame - $1: I can't resist eyelet!

pot - $2: (the pillow case and muffin tin are inside of it) you can't see this that well but I love these big old pots.



Here you see a hodge podge of vintage linens including 2 of those fun terrycloth aprons and a lovely embroidered pillow case (the blue flowers). I also see a wonderful little owl tea strainer that is too cute for words. I love all vintage linens and embroidered items and have quite a collection of them now. Did you know that my 100th post is quickly approaching? I think I'll celebrate with a little give away that will include the linens you see above plus some other thrifty and crafty surprises. So if you'd like to be in on the drawing please leave me a comment and I'll have Luis draw a lucky winner for some Thrifty Goodness! I'll post the winner on my 100th post which should come on or about next Tuesday. I'll make it the last thing I do before I leave to get married.

Cheers!

Rebecca

Lovely finds. I particularly am fond of the terry aprons. I use aprons quite often. It keeps me in touch with the Mrs. Cleaver in me.

I commented back on your comment just now about the swap, but wanted to drop a line here since i wasn't sure next time you'd be by, but the swap sounds great! keep me posted on the details and let me know if you need help.

Drooling over those Vera napkins! 45 cents- what a find. Some people are "thrifting lucky". I am not one of those people. But I still love the pleasure of the hunt.

100 posts? Wow, you talk alot. *snerk*

I am on a mission to convert everyone I know over to the religion of Thrift. Perhaps they'll buy stuff for me even if they don't want stuff for themselves. LOL! Almost just like passing the donation plate... see the similarity?

Hell yah, add me to the pot of goods. Did you say something about an apron? Whoa. Wait, how did I miss that?

Miz Smoochie Lips said...

Oh shut UP! Those are terrycloth aprons?! I didn't know they even made those kind!!! Girl, you KNOW I have a passion for kitchen fashion. Pick me. Pick me.

I have lots on Ransburg pieces. I have the red canisters with the flowers painted on them and then I have a couple of cookie jars. Those copper canisters are great. Put me in for the giveaway. And happy wedding!

Wow Rebecca, your almost 100 posts old!! Congrats, now that's a lot Goodness you've shared with us, and now a giveaway too?? You must know how to multitask to the max because I think the week before my wedding, I could barely hold my own, let alone blog, thrift, craft, hold a swap, and do a giveaway! What a Woman!

Have a great weekend chicky!

Can't believe your wedding is almost here! And that you're almost to 100 posts. Looks like you got some nice thrifty finds. The cannisters look great. Count me in for the give away.

Have a great weekend!

P.s. - Thanks for adding my blog to your friends list! :)

Colleen said...

It is nice to find a whole set of canisters - I never get that lucky! I didn't know that Ransburg made copper canisters - I've only seen the painted stoneware kind.

Congratulations on your (nearly) 100 posts!

Tessa said...

I love your blog! Count me in on the contest, and congratulations on your wedding!

Bee said...

Blogger keeps making my comments disappear... grrr

I love the copper cannisters! really nice. Good stuff.... The carrot set makes me smile and the embroidered linens are lovely. Yay, for cute Owls!

OK , now to tackle the evil word verification......

Peta said...

What is that little house in the last photo? Is it a cookie jar?

Miz Smoochie Lips said...

I really miss your posts! I know you're off doing something major and life altering (like getting married and shtuff) but could you please hurry back? Heh heh! I hope you do a little thrifty "choppin" on your honeymoon and show us lots of good pictures!
