Summer Clearance: Friday's Find #338

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! No...the local thrift stores have not reopened, but I did make an early morning run to an almost empty Hobby Lobby. In fact, when I saw how empty the parking lot was, I thought they were closed. Since they were open, I picked up a few end-of-summer clearance items...

After the Storm: 6 Week Update


Monday Greetings, Friends! A little over six weeks have passed since the high winds and hail storm that damaged my garden.

Today, I'm sharing an update of the progress that has been made...

Vintage Silver Vase: Friday's Find #336


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Unfortunately, Texas is among the states with a spike in coronavirus cases. Sadly, I'm not surprised, as our "reopening process" was aggressive. Suffice it to say--I'm not out thrifting, but I do have a single vintage treasure to share with you today...


vintage silver vase


Last week, when I loaded up my car with storm debris, I found this vintage silver vase that had been overlooked.  I remember picking it up from a winter yard sale for $1...it must have been in January, since I haven't been to any sales since the pandemic. 


vintage silver vase


I kept a box in the back of my hatchback that I decided to reuse for debris, and when I pulled it out, the pretty vase was hiding under a quilt! Likely, the day I bought it, I had multiple grocery bags to bring in and it was overlooked. Has anyone else done that?

Even so, it was a nice treat to "find" waiting in my car, and even lovelier with a thrifty grocery store bouquet! I love the patina and ornate details.
