This Weeks Finds


I called in to the Animal Welfare op shop on Saturday morning and found some great things

A large heavy vase/urn ........perfect for my white collection
 
 
 
 
 
 
A couple of embroidered linens
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The post bought another book for my collection of red bound  Victorian collection. I found this online for $5
by the same author as the last one I bought . These sorts of books written for children with a religous them and usually given as  Sunday School prizes
 
 
 
 
 
My long awaited ruched pillowcases also arrived
 
 
And ...I know Autumn is getting close with the opening of our first Clematis

  9. I love white vases because they go with just about every holiday decoration, or can be for the ordinary days. I have a favorite thrift shop I try to visit at least once a month. I'm always on the lookout for vases like yours.

    I would love for you to link up your finds at my Fabulously Frugal Thursday linky.
