My Thrifty Sale Finds

Please join Ronda at to see all the things that everyone has found.

These were my patriotic finds this week. A nice basket with a star lining, a pretty red vase and the tray with silhouettes of Martha and George. All three for $5.00. The lining in the basket is nice and I can now use it to make a pattern for other linings. I'm thinking of getting a new sewing machine. Mine is a 35 year old Singer that just sews straight and zigzag. The new ones do so much more. Of course I heard they have plastic gears and not the metal ones like my old one does. Well, I'll have to think on it more. I really don't sew all that much!

Isn't this hand painted dish the sweetest little thing! I got it at a garage sale for $2.00. It's in perfect shape.

The wicker wall basket and the little shelf are both in line for white paint. The basket I plan on hanging on my front door with some pretty summer flowers in it. I'm not sure where the shelf will go but I'll find a place. Photos will come later.

I found this bed tray at GW and plan of course painting it white. It will do until I find a nice white wicker one.
Have a great Monday and have fun at those sales!!
