thrifted treasures

In spite of the rain, I had a wonderful time hunting for thrifted treasures during my girls day out last Friday .   


This pretty little lemon plate was 75% off and only cost me .48 cents.  


And this yellow candle stick holder was only .99 cents...cute, huh?  It seems I find myself smitten with yellow and lemons this Spring.  I'll be sharing more of my growing collection in the days to come.


Now the gorgeous jadeite juicer was definitely not found in a thrift store (I wish I were so lucky) but a very generous birthday gift from my sister in law.  Yeah, I know, spoiled, I tell you...just plain spoiled.


I love how they came together on the entryway table...



Isn't this the best thought to ponder?



"Gratitude turns what we have into enough."

Isn't that the truth?  I am so grateful for all of you and your kind comments.  I wish there was a way to thank each of you individually...just know that you mean the world to me.

xo, Patty

  5. What a lucky girl to find your lemon plates! And then the jadeite, wow! But my favorite is the saying on your chalk board. I've copied it and it is going on my chalk board when I get home. I also am so thankful for my blog friends. You are the best treasure!

  11. Patty,
    I, too, have been quite smitten with the soft buttery yellows this Spring. Perhaps it's due to our grey winter? Adore your newest finds!
    Fondly,
    Pat
