My Blog List
She encouraged me to join in.. so here is my inaugural Tuesday Treasures post. I thought I'd post about some recent "junking" finds. My MIL likes to go thrift shopping and some of the stores give a good discount for "seniors" on a certain day of every week. Ironically, the discount days at her fave shops are .. you guessed it. TUESDAYS. :) So recently we were visiting, along with my SIL's family from Phoenix and my MIL, SIL and I went junking together. It was so much fun, and I've never found so many cute things for soo cheap! 50% cheaper with my MIL's discount! Santa Rosa has some really good thrift stores! Here are some of the things I found.. (there was more but I will just show you a few)
Little mason jar-like S&P shakers.. They have come in soo handy!
Clear glass jars for the bathroom in different shapes and sizes. My mom has one like the medium sized one that I remember from when I was a little girl.. so it's very nostalgic.
And.. this wooden key hanger.. I might spray paint it.. hmm.. and a little sunflower hook.
The key kind of goes with a couple of other keys I've collected.. I guess I have a small thing for keys. :)
I posted this pic before, but it is such a treasure find .. my MIL found it another time when she was thrifting and picked it up for me. An entire bolt of quilting cotton for about $5!
One woman's trash is another woman's treasure!! But what I most treasure, and what is priceless, is the time I got to spend with my MIL, and my SIL doing something fun like this. We had such a great time. And all of my little finds will always remind me of them, and the wonderful day we spent together!
I guess we have some things in common! I adore op shops (Opportunity Shops here in Australia) and as you can see from my Tuesday Treasure I have had some lovely finds also.
I Love your glass measuring cup, I have lot of old recipe books that sometimes have VERY obscure measurements!
Have enjoyed browsing your blog - and adore the name!
