vacation miscellany

 Three see-through plastic storage boxes.  Fifty cents each.  Always useful at OUR house!
 Never one to pass up ANYthing blue and white, I snatched up these candles.
 I've always loved this quote (above).  
I was happy to find it on a plaque - very reasonably priced.
 This, I believe, is a juicer.  It has already taken its place in a wooden bowl
 containing other wooden kitchen tools.  ($.25)
 I've never figured out how to wear scarves properly myself, but I admire them...
 and I COULDN'T pass up this colorful one made in Italy designed with a map and scenes 
 from Greece.
Maybe one of these days I'll show you the books I bought while visiting thrift stores 
in states south of ours.  I just can't seem to resist scouring the book shelves.
I DID resist several furniture pieces.  There just wasn't room in the car!


  1. You always find the best things!
    I need to get to our local thrift shop. Haven't been for months! Look at the things I am missing, Rebecca!!!
    Great finds.

  2. Hey...
    What fun!
    If you are ever in may area...
    there is a good used furniture store...
    I bought a Wardrobe made out of Pine for $90.
    I also got a nice wooden stool for $10.
    I haven't been there in a while....
    but need to go soon!
    Take care,

  8. With my blue and white habit, you KNOW I loved those candles. So pretty. Those plastic boxes were a bargain too!
