Thrifty Finds…

I went shopping  Saturday at some really great places.  The Sassy Sofa in Trussville is just a great place and a block away from there is the Trussville Antique Mall which I also really like.  I have to admit there are about three booths in that antique mall that I really love and one in particular. I never go there that I don’t buy something from this particular dealer.  So I thought I would share the few small things that I did manage to find, fall in love with and purchase.

I got both, this little bowl and the dog from the dealer I mentioned above.  I had to work to get that bowl, let me tell you.  It was inside a china cabinet and the door was stuck, so I was trying to unstick the door without everything falling off, and then snake my arm inside past a bunch of stuff to get said bowl.  But I did persevere and it was only $4.  Love that.  I also got the little dog in there…actually I got three dogs…I seem to be on a dog jag…..what’s up with that?  I have cats!

I also got this little platter….then promptly dropped and broke it half in two on the way to the car….typical!  Enter Elmer’s Glue….it’s all good….

  1. Love your little finds...the doggies are so cute! Love the plate too and don't worry about the crack, I think cracks and ships on plates adds charm to them! Have a great day!!!

  2. Great finds and I like how you put them all together.
    Your newest follower, Mary Alice

  3. Love the dogs... and Elmers worked?? Who knew! I drop and break things all the time. Makes me furious at myself!

  4. You did good! I have been there...where you want something way in back of the cabinet and you worry that you're going to have to BUY everything in front of it! lol! I have used Elmer's glue on just about everything after getting a tip. It's a miracle glue. I love the platter! And the dogs! Your vignettes are SO pretty!!

    Are you warm down there?


  5. Great finds Lou Cinda and your little doggies are just adorable! You would never know that you dropped and cracked that's looks great.

  6. Lou Cinda,
    Happy to see that you will be at NTT today (party will be starting soon). Love all your treasures...the little dogs are so darn cute and glad that your platter was able to be repaired.


  7. Great finds, Lou Cinda! I love how the red in the platter picks up the red in the bowl! I'm glad you were able to repair the platter.

  8. Lou Cinda, Your doggies are very sweet and look great in the vignette. You aren't alone in your little clumsiness- can't tell you how many times I've dropped things and had to fix them! :-)Sue

  9. You found some lovely things. I love the little bowl, the dog and the pretty plate. You can't even tell that it was broken.:) I have a set of silver salt and pepper shakers like the one i can barely see in the second to last photo! I love them, they're so pretty.
    Have a lovely day.
    Hugs, cindy

  10. Love your sweet vignette, especially those adorable dogs! The platter is really pretty, too. I like the way you have incorporated it into the vignette.

  11. Well, aren't you a lucky chickie! AWESOME finds. I have tons of little dogs.... including that little second one you bought. Aren't they just the happiest little fellas?

    Everything looks perfect!


  12. I love all your finds! Especially the little dogs. I just adore ceramic dogs. Dropping the plate sounds like something I'd do and come to think of it, I've done that very thing. You did a great job gluing yours back together.
    Have a nice week!

  13. Your a winner girl! Please e-mail me your full name and name of person attending the show with you! PLease leave me you cell phone # as well!

  14. Hi, my name is Heather! Please email me when you can, I have a question about your blog!

    Love the kitty. He looks sooo cozy.
