FABULOUS Thrifting Finds! ~ C'mon In and See

Hi Friends!!!

First off, do you like my new look? There are some neat blog free backgrounds that other bloggers have so graciously offered. I love anythings ROSES as you know so I changed to this one cause its so right up my alley! LOL

Okay...I have a few things that I have picked up today and last week I thought I'd show you. When this girl gets the urge to go Thrifting...nothings get's in my way..not even feeling crummy cause of allergies!
I nabbed this metal can because of the...ROSE's...YEP I sure do love 'em and I have a small collection of these round cannisters.
I also found this darling, petite silver 2 tiered tidbit tray. Not quite sure if I am going to keep it or maybe offer it up in my etsy store..still thinking on this one.
Next four pictures are my ULTIMATE, FABULOUS finds! I LOVE bone china too...and of course ROSE's!!!! So when I find these 8 inch plates they just cry out to me!
Then there's this sweet saucers whose cup is gone a missin'...I am sure I can find a space on a wall somewhere just for it!
Oh my, its so hard to see the sweet forget~me~nots on this handpainted Cookie plate but the colors are so pretty, soft and muted.
Last, but never this pretty handpainted violets plate...isn't this just LOVELY? I sure think so!
A darling Angel Duo..will go well in my RED Powder room which is full of angels and cherubs...I almost put these back, so glad I didn't!
In my kitchen I have a more English/French Country I nabbed this napkin holder..99c..not to bad huh?
Red, really is one of my favorte colors to have in a just POPs and is a happy color. Growing up when I would be down, I'd wear red to cheer myself up. I almost didn't get this cause I didn't realize it said $4.99...the sweet lady waiting on me said..I want it off my shelves, I price these items and would rather see them go to a good I paid .99C..this will probably go in my Red Powder room
And I thought $3 for this denim jacket was a steal...and loved those CHICO's goucho style capri's for $4 wasn't bad either. Plus these are a rich caramel color (my camera didn't capture the right color)..YUM!
Then I just couldn't pass up this Snowman/ some Christmas ideas...we will see how they turn out..could be a before/after some day!

Well..thanks for letting me share!

Hi Lorena, I LOVE your new blog look! So very pretty ~ so YOU! You got some really great finds thrifting, but I'm especially taken with the violets plate!! I love the tidbit tray, too. The tin has incredible roses on it, almost as pretty as yours! You could make some really fun tassels with those snowmen!!

Big Hugs,
Angelic Accents

I can't believe you found all of those rose plates, honey!! I'd love to find some around here. But the clothing was a fantastic buy also. Come to think of it, what would I do with another plate? I have stacks I haven't hung yet!
Talk when I get back from the wilds of Idaho.....
