Found Treasures...& a charm from Katie's Rose Cottage

I received a package Saturday of a beautiful charm I had ordered from Katie's Rose Cottage.  She had a 40% off sale & I couldn't resist.  She delivered promptly & even added a special gift; a pretty tag she had made.  You need to check out her items because they are a treat for the eyes!  Here's her blog:  (copy & paste)
I just love the charm!  Isn't the tag lovely?

 I found some treasures at Goodwill last week and thought I'd share them.  I am always looking for paintings and fell in love with this simple ocean scene...
It is only 11" x 13"

 Then I found a little creamer~sugar set and a tea cup; both were only 2 inches tall!  I'm collecting small containers for my bottle brush trees & these will look really sweet.  Although I must admit, it will be hard to separate the creamer~sugar set.  Maybe I will have to sell them as a pair.  It is hard to see in the picture but there is a faint snowflake pattern on the teacup in the bold gold stripe.

I was really excited when I found some Homer Laughlin bowls.  They are so delicate and pretty.  The only thing that was disappointing is that there were only 3; but I got them anyway.  I hope to add to the collection.  They were only 99 cents each!

Also in the picture below are a blue dish with birds; I will add eggs & more fluff to the nest when I can.  I got it at Real Deals.  The white batten~burg lace topper I got at Ross for $1.99!  It will look nice on my round table in the guest room in our new home.  I always love hunting for new treasures to add to my collections or use in my craft projects.  I have a friend, Melody, that loves thrifting, so we have a blast together.  She always calls & asks if I "need to get away".  It is a perfect friend match~up because we look for different things!!  I am going to miss her something fierce when I move away.  We have already planned on her coming to visit & we'll check out the thrift stores there.  We have way too much fun when we are together.  But that is what friends are for...
