On my way home, I decided I needed to stop at the jeweler because my engagement ring, I should say the very first ring my husband bought me was in really bad shape.. It’s not worth much, doesn’t have real stones. The only value in money it holds is the gold it’s made of but to me, it’s priceless. I finally got around to bringing it in to see if it could be put back together. Somehow, the shape of the ring turned oval, the stones in it, some had fallen out and the prongs were lose. Mr. Lou has since bought me another ring but this ring for all it’s problems and small price tag is…priceless to me. I left the jeweler floating on air because it can be fixed and cheaply too!. So I should have my precious ring back just in time for Valentines day.
Across from the jeweler, a brand new Salvation Army Thrift Shop has just opened up.. I thought to myself well, no better time than the present to go in and have a look see. I was determined I wasn’t going to buy anything. I looked at many items but I also noticed their prices are a bit high for used merchandise so most of it I put back except these two beauties. I just couldn’t pass them up.
First up is this pretty little pitcher I found on a shelf. I love the colors and they match beautifully with my kitchen / dining room colors.
I love the greens and the white magnolia as well as the texture. And I adore that little branch across the top.
Here is the front where you would pour from.
I just love the detail of the flowers how some are closed and some only partially open.
This is the reverse side.
I am thinking I will be putting this on my dining room table and filling it with flowers.
My second find was this. Two of my favorite things together. Sunflowers and teapots!
I love the colors in this piece also. For some reason the white here looks almost mint green but it’s really white.
I think this little bee ontop is so adorable!.
I’m not sure where I”ll put this little treasure but I’m sure I”ll find a spot.. Isn’t he cute?
For both pieces I spent $9.00. A bit more than I wanted to but I really like these two pieces and I thought what I would have paid for each if they had been brand new and so I think I made out alright. Have you found any new thrifting finds this week?
On a sadder note, Mr Lou and I think our Lady girl is just about ready to be leaving us. We aren’t quite sure but it is looking that way.
She’s been diabetic since 2009, she’s also blind from the diabetes and lately she seems a bit more confused, she’s had two seizures since November and in the last two days she doesn’t want to eat her food on her own which is a huge deal for her. She always ate.. Eating was one of her favorite things. Her breathing is a little worse as well. She has scar tissue in her lungs from the diabetes which we think has gotten worse. We will be taking her into the vet tomorrow morning. I pray she comes home with us but I won’t be surprised if she doesn’t although we will be completely heart broken. Please say a pray for all of us. For Lady, and for Mr Lou and I that we can be strong whatever comes.
