Sum total

I don't get to go shopping in thrift stores or markets that much these days! My boys are older now and not so happy to be fobbed off with a little toy while I browse so I don't inflict the experience on them. But in the last couple of weeks I've made some time for myself and hit a little rummage sale and a couple of thrift stores and found lots of lovely things, here they are...

Some pretty pieces of china - $1 each.

I love putting mismatched patterns together and seeing how lovely they can look.

This little olive dish was 50 cents.

Only $2 for this Villeroy and Boch dish.

A cute little Royal Doulton bowl for $1.

This chicken-shaped wire egg basket was a steal at 50 cents! I've wanted one of these ever since spotting one in Nigella's kitchen :-)

I'm not really a "pink girl" but occasional little pieces contrast nicely with all my robin-egg blue kitchenware, this bowl was $1.

My tiniest bowl ever - 20 cents.

I still can't believe I scored this harlequin set of Pyrex ramekins for only $1!

I LOVE this turquoise and white platter - only $2.

A set of tasting spoons (I am building a little collection of these) - $2.

A pair of salad hands - 50 cents.

This multi-aperture box frame (brand new in its packaging) only cost $1. I think I'll do a montage of beach pictures in it :-)

Hello little dolphin - 50 cents. My youngest spotted this on my bookshelf and exclaimed "That's MY dolphin"! Now he won't give it back.

That's a sum total of $15.20! I'm happy with that!

And today I'm linking up with the lovely Rhoda at Southern Hospitality and the beautifully vintage Sophie at Her Library Adventures.

I'm having palpitations over those Pyrex bowls! What an insane find! I've never seen those before, but am loving them. One dollar?? Wow.

That turquoise platter is amazing as well. I'm a bit obsessed with all things turquoise in the kitchen. :)

Great finds! The turquoise bowl is stunning and of course, the Pyrex - too cute! They would make the best ice-cream bowls.
