About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

A Glass of OJ, Anyone?

Thanks to Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality for giving me the opportunity to participate in Today's Thrifty Treasures. Last Friday I saw a listing on craigslist for an antique shop that was closing so I called the number. Everything in the shop is half off so I made a trip over on Saturday. Picked up this neat cheese box and the pink carnival glass juice glasses for a song...... At $10.00 for five glasses, that's $2.00 per glass. I have two carnival glass platters from my great Aunt Clara's estate, one in green and one in the same pink color. Looks like the beginning of a new collection..... The dessert plate pictured is one from my Colclough china collection. Makes a cute little statement in my kitchen window, don't you think? And to see a REAL thrifty treasure, scroll down to the last post to see the black glass chargers I got from the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby last week for $1.50 each..... original price was $15.00, so I got 6 chargers valued at $90.00 for $9.00! That was some bargain, don't you think?


  1. A total bargain! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love the cheese box and the glasses; pink depression glass, how could you go wrong? Great bargains!

  3. Love your bargains!

    The black chargers are perfect. Hobby Lobby has THE best clearance sales, ever!


  4. Nice fines. I looked at the black chargers and was tempted, but I am out of room.

  5. That is suppose to be "Nice finds". :-)

  6. Wonderful finds! That cheese box is so cool.

  7. Hello Terri - love your finds! Especially that cheese box! Thank you for sharing.



Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from y'all....
