Another one......

Are you like me?  When your driving down the road do you get this excited feeling in the pit of your stomach when you see a Good Will store, or pass a yard sale?  I have two consignment shops within walking distance of my house and sometimes I feel as though my vehicle has a mind of it's own when I'm traveling down the highway.  Honestly within a five mile distance I have two GW's, a Salvation Army, a thrift store and two AWESOME consignment shops!  So I thought I'd practice by showing you one of the things that I've purchased in the last couple of here goes.....
This was my very first piece that I bought.  I was standing in line at a local thrift store paying for my $40.00 China cabinet (that will come at a later post) when I looked over and saw this on a shelf.  I ran over and grabbed it.  It was $6.00 (is that good?) but I loved the feet and the ornate handle. 

Here she is at another she was a bear to clean!

And here she is all shined up and pretty for spring!

My next feat will be trying my hand at a linky party...shaking in my boots on this one..HA HA

Hi Sue,
I also came over from Cheryl's blog. It is great to meet you. I am now a follower! I love your silver pitcher and yes $6 is a very good price. I've been blogging over a year now and I love it!! I am a thrifter and junker and love it. I'm about to be a Grandma for the first time (any day now). I hope when you have a chance you will visit my blog. I was also touched by Cheryl and her sisters story. Hugs, Linda

I see that you are in Pa. near Phila. I am just up the road about 2 hours in Wilkes Barre/Scranton area! Small world, huh? Love your silver pitcher and yes, I too hate cleaning silver!! LOL!
Tomorrow, my favorite Thrift Store, Volunteers of America, is holding their monthly Half Price Sale. Everything in the store is half price. I will be there at 9 am when the doors open. I hope I will have lots of goodies to post about!! LOL!!

I tell you, it would be dangerous to put me that close to a thrift store, especially the Salvation Army Store. Then again, if it was within walking distance I'd probably walk there all the time and actually lose weight, LOL!
