low cost fun and finds

I collect white ironstone so this Meakin gravy was a no-brainer
when I saw it on my favorite thrift store's shelf recently.
 These two vintage plaques with Scripture verses on them
were garage sale finds last weekend.  
I treasure BOTH of them.
And while we're on the subject, how about this unusual bust of Christ?
(Actually, there were two of them.  The person selling them at her garage sale
thought they were bookends.  They certainly are heavy enough!)
   And finally, this bracelet! 
I paid a quarter for it.  It caught my eye before I realized what it was made from...
I decided to buy it if for nothing else - a pattern.

  1. What dandy finds! I love the gravy boat. I always wanted one...now have one...and we hardly use gravy or have gravy type company anymore! Still I like the white ironstone!

    1. :) We hardly ever "do" gravy either! Will have to think of another use for it.

    1. These wall plaques came from the estate of a sweet woman who was in our Red Hats group - so they have double significance for me...

  6. You find the best stuff. I'll have to give that bracelet a closer look. Looks like it would be fun to make. As for natural wood finishes, I like it. One day all the painted stuff will be "out of fashion" and everyone will be trying to take the paint off.
