Yep I spelled DAZE correctly! This past weekend we went to our favorite thrift store armed with 5 bucks and the hopes of just enjoying a bit of time together while looking at other folks cast offs. When we got there we discovered that it was "1 Box for a buck" day! We are talking big boxes. If it fits in the box its yours for a buck. We filled 3 boxes and had such a great time doing it. Although I truely was in a daze when all was said and done!
Here is a partical list of our found treasure:
2 glass vases, 11 double picture frames ( old ), 1 glass bowl, rocks ( river and glass), 2 princess house bowls, 2 mirrors, 1 set of curtians, wooden pencil box, pair of new shoes, stuffed penguin, ( like new), 1 old creamer in a pattern I adore, 2 1950s pattern plates, 1 large box sewing patterns, 4 grape vine wraths, 1 straw wreath, lots of fall and christmas plastic foilage, drafting material ( antique), 5 old golden books on Christmas, 17 books, 2 rolls of wrapping paper, 13 record set ( Verdi), Set of Records ( Great Band era) 4 jars filled with electronics ( still useable), decorator pillow, 1 painting canvas, 7 wood frames for framing paintings, 2 christmas placemats, christmas cards, and more....See why I was in a DAZE?!
Most of this stuff will be turned into treasure in the form of Christmas gifts. I was thrilled to find treasures to freshen up my tired fall and christmas decorations. And you all know I love books! One of my favorites is Amy Vanderbilt's Complete Cookbook. This is a fabulous old fashioned cook from scratch cookbook. The Cakes Cupcakes and Cookies section is amazing!!! Fond memories of many of the recipes used by my mom and grandmother. I wish I had photos but the camera is on a blitz.
