2 treasures and a giveway picture

Morning!!! Looks like rain today but that's ok...need to work inside today! Thank you to all who have left sweet comments on my 1000 hit and giveaway post! I love hearing from everyone! If you haven't entered yet...go one post down and leave a comment!

Here are pictures of some treasures...I got them at a thrift store called Rescued Treasures. They are having a sale until the end of August 50% off everything in the store. Their furniture is a bit pricey but their dishes and other "treasures" not so bad. They even had things like vases and individual plates and cups at 75% off. I ended up getting 2 identical milk glass footed bowls, 7 six inch bread plates by Franciscan (pattern Maytime), 4 snack plates with cups , a small milk glass vase and a milk glass candy dish... all for $12. I didn't think that was bad at all!

This is the vase with wildflowers from our creek.

This chicken planter came from the Salvation Army last week. I fell in love with it!

And this is the GIVEAWAY picture!!! One of the bread plates I picked up, one of the milk glass footed bowls and a little bird house that I picked up at a yard sale. This is my first giveaway, hope you like it!

Well, I guess that laundry is calling my name. Hope you all have a great day! Happy treasure hunting and hugs!!!

Congrats on your blogging milestone! You have some nice treasures---I LOVE snack sets, I have a bunch. Infact, my friends love them too and they have all collected sets. SOOOOO when we are having a shower or a luncheon for lots of invitees, we pool our sets. The guests always enjoy using them---and we get to put our treasures to good use. Your creek wildflowers are just wonderful!!
