Gifted, Thrifted and Yard Sale Finds!

It's been a fun few weeks of finds!  I was able to find some items to sell from yard sales and get some money for the things I wanted to keep...I LOVE when you can come out at a 0 balance for what you keep!
Oh how I love this!  A MOD recipe box.  It looks like a pattern on a dress Twiggy would have worn. 99 cents at V.V.

A 1958 Napco Angel for Christmas.  I don't come across many angels and prefer them to Santa.  99 cents at V.V.
Love this...haven't ever come across this Pyrex pattern (Square Flowers, is it?)  I can't remember if that's official or what everyone calls it.  $2 at a small thrift.

$5 for a set of mint condition melamine dishes.  The lady said they've been in her camper for ever.  Probably always hand washed.  I always find them scratched, faded or I don't like the pattern.  It was so fun to find these!

I have an amazing husband.  He was on his way to work yesterday morning and calls me.  "I have Pyrex in my hands but no cash...I'll hold them until you get here."  This is part of that amazing sale!

Doesn't this combo remind you of ice cream cones in the summer time?  Chocolate, Mint and Strawberry.  The top two are the ones my husband called about...they were 50 cents each!  The Beautiful largest cinderella of the Pink Gooseberry Family was $5 at a "reoccurring" yard sale of some great ladies who used to own a store.  What a great price for that piece!

I don't know what it is about these English Egg Coddle Cups, but I've always loved them.  They are always to expensive...even in the thrifts.  These were 50 cents at the sale my husband found!

I used my new finds to change up the laundry room a little:

I love this!  Cute little vintage apron was only 99 cents at V.V. but I had a 30% off card so it was 69 cents!

Oh, Lord help me...this isn't Pyrex (It's Fire King) but it screamed 1950's kitchen at me and it was soooo cute!  I had that 30% off at V.V. so it was $3.50

A very sweet gal from church who reads the blog brought this too me.  So cute!  A vintage musical toy.  You crank the handle to hear the joyful sound.

Hope you are enjoying yard sale season and thrift shopping after people's "Spring Cleaning" as much as I am!
