A Few Tuesday Treasures

Hi everyone!

We got back from camping last night. It was a fun getaway. But, man was it hot and muggy! Fortunately, we had a lake to go and jump into!

When I stopped at a yard sale while camping, I found this perfect "beach bag". All plastic and great for wet towels. I got it for .50 cents. And we used it a lot this past weekend!



Now, it wasn't all play at the lake! I have a couple of projects floating in my head and I needed to gather some free Mother Nature supplies!




They don't call it Rock Lake for nothing! LOL

That was just a little tease. I haven't got any projects done yet :)

Although I have more to show you from my thrifting this past weekend, I haven't got pictures taken yet. So, I am going to share with you a few thrifty finds I bought before we went camping.

I have seen these basket beverage trays before and always thought they were fun. When I came across this one for only $1.00, I picked it up.




I picked up a set of 4 copper canisters for $1.00. They are in pretty good shape. I have never had much in the way of copper in the past. But, I think we are going to be seeing a lot more copper pieces being shown this Fall. And the warm richness of copper will be just beautiful for Autumn decoratng!





And for another $1.00 I got this copper pitcher. It is made by F B Rogers. You know how I love my pitchers and I can't wait to use this one.




A little history of F B Rogers

Former F.B. Rogers Silver Company, West Water Street, Taunton, MassachusettsF. B. Rogers Silver Co. was a silversmithing company founded in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts in 1883. It was acquired by Edmund W. Porter and L.B. West, who incorporated the company and moved manufacturing operations to Taunton, Massachusetts in 1886.

For several years, the company became known as West Silver Company, and was producing silver products for the William Rogers Manufacturing Company of Hartford, Connecticut.

About 1904, West and Porter retired and sold the company to William Davison, Carleton A. Woodward and H.E. Nearing, who changed the company's name back to F.B. Rogers

I put them on my bakers rack shelf in the dining room. Up against the brick wall, they look so pretty. I haven't "done" this shelf yet. I just set them up there for the time being.
