Thrifty Finds

A few weeks ago Miss B and I went thrifting and yard saling.
While Miss B chose great items like books and a cute stroller for her
mickey mouse. I found these, I spent a total of .50 for them.

Lots of them! There is a lot of damage but I think I can fix most of them.

It really was a company that made these even though I have never seen them.

A new leather lizclaborn wallet at the dump oh yeah.

Clean as a whistle.

And Today lookie what I found at the dump. I ran a lot of white vinegar
through it and then flushed it.
the reservoir is in the dish washer it works great, daughter is all over it.

What 'deer' little lights Cathy! They really are delightful.
The new wallet is so lovely, one wonders why on earth folk throw these (expensive) things away?
Sending positive thoughts to David, and hoping he comes out the winner of this fight very soon.

These are so cute! I still have a reindeer just like these...it was on our family tree in the 50's and 60's and it brings back so many memories when I bring it out each year. I just love these guys...lucky you! What a great deal!

Great finds and I can't believe that coffer maker was at the dump? Maybe someone quit drinking coffee..

Sorry about your husband is under the weather. He's in my prayers everyday and I'll keep on praying.

I hope that he will be OK.

Hugs.
