Thrifting Saturday

My sister is visiting from California so what better excuse is there to go out to lunch and do a little thrifting afterwards?  Actually a little before and afterwards!

Here are my finds today!

These cute Pyrex dishes were $1.06 each and are just perfect for individual servings of fruit or dessert.  Since there are just two of us here....I snapped them up in a hurry!  I love the sunny yellow.



I had a little accident and a cupboard shelf tipped forward sending four or five coffee mugs to the tile floor and several Coke glasses.  One was a favorite mug I recently thrifted. (top right)  I blogged about finding it last fall for a stocking stuffer.  BUT...I loved it so much I began using it and decided to keep it.  It was my mug of choice up until last Saturday.

So I've been looking for replacements.  I'm pretty picky about my coffee mugs and I loved this one.  It is sized just right, colored inside, it has some aqua color and is very spring-y.  It's artsy, hand painted and good quality.  Happy me! $1.06




 I do not need this, I do not need this.  I don't even collect them, but I just loved it.  It's a pink Luster Ware plastic salt shaker.

You can barely make out the etching that spells SALT on the front.  The lid untwists and it can be filled.  It's tiny, maybe holds a quarter cup salt.  I loved it.  $.39 

Was it the aqua design?  Was it the oriental feel?  Was it the Melamine name embossed on the bottom along with Japan,  MG-156?  Was it the script "Threeline" jauntily written across a circle?  Was it the fact it looked similar to an ash tray I made in school?  Is it Saturn and her moons?   I had to own it. It set me back $.39



 I actually needed this compact mirror for my purse!  Isn't it cute as a button?

It magnifies on one side and has an actual reflection on the other.  Will I use it?  Maybe.  I have a horrible habit of forgetting all about what I look like until I get home and look in the mirror and see that my hair needed attention, my chin grew three hairs while I was out and I have a piece of parsley decorating my front tooth.  

This pink compact mirror is so cute I may get it out just to admire it.  Then I will remember that others have to look at me and I should try to fix problems that crop up after I leave the house.  It's about time I learned if I'm ever going to.  It's just that other things are just so much more interesting than me and old habits die hard.

at 39¢ for the salt shaker...how can you NOT?! you could put any sort of often used spice in there for easy (and pretty) access when cooking. love the yellow bowls too!
