A Little Thrifting Never Hurts Anyone

One day this week I was just feeling "low"
So, off I went to the Thrift Store.
Sometimes I just like to browse around
And see what is there.
But, this time I did find a few little pieces of junk Treasure
Let me show you what I found. . .
Milk glass. Can never pass that up. $1
I do believe that is Transferware. $1 for both cup and saucer
Adorable china flower plates 50 cents a piece
(With the mark of Crown Staffordshire England)
Each plate has a name on the bottom. (Interesting)
Also found this adorable quilt. .
Not a mark on it and in perfect condition.
(I know DI washes everything before it goes on the floor)
I gave it a good hot washing, and it is beautiful. $3.00
Then. . .

This beautiful frame. . .It really isn't the color
I am going for right now, but I thought I could paint it. .
A nice man saw me holding the frame and debating
Whether to buy it or not.
He came rushing over with this beautiful print. . .
It went perfect with the frame. . . .  and I really like it.
And I don't want to paint the frame. . .
I just so happen to have the perfect place for it.
Total cost for the frame and print. . . $4
Well, I felt pretty good after my time at the thrift store.
Come home with my junk treasures
Gave a good sign and had a Diet Coke. 
I feel much better now!
Oh, the joys of being a JUNKER!
I do believe I will hook up with other
Treasure Hunters.
This is Linda's last time hosting the party. Next week
We will be at a new hostess,
