Thrifty Finds Today

I spent a wonderful afternoon with my friend K.  We went to ReHouse (salvage, etc.) and one of our favorite antique shops. It was a small haul but, I really am happy with my little purchases. In fact everything was on a little list in my head.


Brass candelabra (will be painted) $5, children's 50's tea set (looks like
jadeite) $10, zinc topped jars $8 (I especially like the one that has raised glass lettering
that says French's mustard, made right here in Rochester, NY).

 

I can't think of a better way to avoid to housework on a gorgeous, sunny, warm day. Can you?
