What I Bought for $23.50 Part 2

Part 2 of all the great stuff I found at the charity shop...a mother of pearl compact for my small thrifted collection

a chippy Royal Doulton "Josephine" dish circa 1900,which I am going to plant with 3 pink hyacinth bulbs

a pretty German vase

as well as the gorgeous stuff I have shown last week and this week I also got designer shoes and clothes ....all for $23

still no so dry in the garden, the hills should be greening up by has been 60 days since it rained

  2. Despite the dry your garden is looking beautiful.
