Thrift Finds

I hope everyone is having a beautiful May
Where I live it appears Spring has finally arrived. .
The mountains have a lot of snow yet to come down
The rivers, creeks, and streams are overflowing
But everyone is keeping a watchful eye. .
For now I am loving the spring weather.
I did take time to do some DI (thrifty store) shopping
And I found some beautiful things. . .
First let me show you the pretty delicate glass bowl I found
 It is so pretty.  It will go anywhere in my home. I love blue!
 Ten linen napkins for $1
I can hardly wait to use them on the table Sunday
for our Mother's Day Dinner.
(my kids will be shocked to be using "real" napkins.)
 Then I found this cute table runner.
I can't decide whether or not to keep it.
I might give it to one of my DIL's or my daughter
 I love this little place mat.  It has a small tag that says Austria.
It is very pretty

 Just showing the cute decorative stitch on the napkins.
Very nice.
 Now, I couldn't pass this yellow gingham apron. . .
It has been hand embroidered. 
Very nice condition, and I love aprons.
 Oh, this pink vase had to come home with me.
It already has fresh flowers in it. (I'll show later).
 This colorful pot is so cute. . . already in use!
 Now, don't think I am goofy. . . I found these white dress gloves.
They are gorgeous!
I just had to have them. . . hey I like gloves. . . I want to wear them.
Whatever happened to those lady like things . . .like hats and gloves?
 See I told you the little colorful pot is already in use with faux flowers.
And last but never least I had to show-off
My colorful doily I just finished. . .
I may pair it with the pink vase or the colorful pot. . .
How has your thrift shopping been. .
Have you found any treasures?
