I’m Back with a Little Red & White

Hi everyone! Well, that was an unexpected mini vacation!  Almost 4 days with no internet access. Don’t worry, I think the shaking will stop soon! LOL

On the one hand it was nice to just throw some clothes in a bag, grab some groceries and head up to our trailer knowing that it was all set up and we didn’t have to do anything when we got there. On the other hand, we have a bunch of stuff that we were in the middle of doing at home and not to mention, this coming Saturday we leave for our summer vacation camping trip for 2 weeks.

Oh well, when life throws you lemons, you throw them in the cooler and head out camping!

And all of you should know by now, that I took advantage of this time to discover a few thrifting venues! LOL

I only have one red item to show you. At a big flea market that was going on in a neighboring town, I found some awesome bargains.

First up is this red and pink afghan. I don’t knit or crochet but, I always respect the time and work that goes into an afghan. This one is a full size afghan. When I saw it, it reminded me of a candy cane and it was only $1.00! So, I got it thinking it would be cute to throw over the bed at Christmas.

As for some whites, I got several things.

A set of two of these medium sized flower bowls for .50 cents

7-10 inventory 071

7-10 inventory 073

Two of these pink and white doilies. These were found at the end of the day and the woman ended up selling them to me for .75 for the pair. They are so pretty and delicate.7-10 inventory 074

7-10 inventory 099

This large platter was marked at some way too high price but, after it didn’t sell, I told the woman I would give her $1.00 for it. And that is what I paid or it. hey, if you are going to try to sell something at a high price at the very least scrub it up. this platter is going to take some elbow grease to get all the dust and dirt out of the crevices!

7-10 inventory 141

This creamer and sugar is staying at the trailer because I didn’t have a set there. It was $1.00 for the pair
