$1 Thrift


This is my latest find from my local thrift store. A teeny vintage cup and saucer for $1.00 mixed with some fresh rose buds plucked from my garden this morning. I don't think there is much more to be said except have a wonderful day!

  8. It's a good thing I didn't get there first or that little pretty would have come home with me!:) Don't worry! I live in the USA. But that's just the sort of thing I adore finding at the thrift store! And with pink roses added? Perfection! I adore your blog.
    Blessings!

  41. Hi! I wish I could have a nearest thrift store but I have to drive five hours and cross the border to have some nice pieces like those.
    But every time a go to the US I always come back with a lot of cool stuff.
    I didn't knew about the Dali's awaking spoon...one more special fact...one question, Do you speak spanish?
