A few thrifty finds...

Although I had fun looking at some of my favorite antique vendors this weekend while we were up north, I didn't come home with anything.

Earlier last week when I dropped off a bag of gently used clothing at my local Goodwill, this stack of small bowls were just waiting to be rescued. 

Perfect for a few strawberries.
jellybeans
or Easter m&ms

The bowls weren't the only things that came home with me.  A bag of thread spools came home too.
I'm addicted to making things with spools now...which is Friday's post.  Thanks for another crafting addiction, Sandy!

Sweet little bowls . . . Fun to find "thrift treats" when we aren't even looking for them isn't it!

I love the bowls. Those are the perfect thing to pick at the thrift store. I should know-I have a few sets of bowls and small plates. Can't wait to see your Friday post on spools!

Great find, such pretty dishes. I think I'm addicted to dishes, since I can't pass them up!

Can't wait to see your spoolies Kim! I find myself looking for spools everytime I hit the thrifts. Spoolies must be addicting too!

You didn't come home with anything?! Wow! But your new bowls are a great find...and I just picked up a bag of spools while in CA last week...some are half spools. Such fun to poke around little antique stores for treasures!

Love the bowls. A nice reward for donating your clothes. I drove an hour to an estate sale this morning and found an amazing tin doll house. Can't wait to post some pictures of it. I know you will approve-it is in great shape and I'm so glad to have one for my collection. Have a nice weekend.

Isn't it funny how we take stuff to the goodwill to get rid of clutter....& then bring something home...that doesn't mean we r hoarders right? Cause I do the same thing! LOL! I love those sweet little bowls...you definitely needed to rescue them....hugs Patti M : )
