Wonderful Thrifty Finds to Start 2014!
I've been going through my "stuff" bit by bit and had a few bags to give away.
While I was out I made a few stops to "hunt" for whatever I might find.
I hit the jack pot in the first Goodwill shop.
I always start looking in the dishware section and move out from there.
There was a large oval cream platter with some red it that looked interesting, so I picked it up to get a better look.
Well good thing I did! There was another platter underneath it.
A beautiful ironstone platter covered with patina!
I could not believe it!.
Those of you who appreciate a good find know exactly how I felt when I saw this!
Especially when the price is $2.00.(TWO DOLLARS!) Yep. That's all folks!
Well, good pieces need new homes. I needed to redo the top of my buffet after taking the Christmas decorations down.
I just love the galvanized silver balls and couldn't put them away.

These glass jars were a Christmas gift. They can be changed up to match the current season or whatever you fancy!
Since it's winter, I thought I would make it look like there snow and placed a silver ball in each one.
It looks pretty with the candles lit.
Another cute find was this little silver creamer. It was $1.00. Perfect to put a tea light in.
The creamer needed a new home as well, so I created a corner with silver.
Some faux purple flowers adds a nice touch of Spring.
I love the idea of a funnel or oil can for a candleholder.
I'm always on the lookout for the slim tapers.
Candles always add warmth.
Mirrors always add more depth.
This is one part of the house redone. Now on to another. But that is for another post!
I found some ironstone bowls and a galvanized strainer which I will share later.
Have you been making changes after putting your Christmas décor away?
