I really hit the jackpot on this week’s thrifitng finds! Several of them were brand new and at a ridiculously low price, so you know I loved that! Plus, they were actually very useful, so that always helps since I am really trying to reel myself in a little! lol First, I found these wonderful Southern Living at Home casserole caddies at my Goodwill a week apart! Strangely enough, the smaller one was priced higher at $2.92 while the rectangular one was only $2.32! Woo hoo!
They are in the now-retired Clairmont pattern and were originally around $30 or so each! My daughter bought the rectangular one at a Southern Living party a while back and now has me on the lookout for the square one! I think I am winning her over to GW hunting! lol
I found this one while on the hunt with my friend Linda at Nina’s Nest…a brand new Bodum French coffee press…their Starbucks version! And do you see the tag…$39.95? I paid $3.53! As my grandson says Wow, zowee, wowee, zow! lol I have a smaller one that I found a while back, but it makes only one cup, so I will enjoy this one! After all, who drinks only one cup of coffee? Not me!
I couldn’t pass up this blue and white pitcher because I had one like it that met with an unfortunate accident at the hands…er, paws…of our co-host Baby Kitty…which may explain why he is staying away from this post! lol I added it to the vignette on my hutch.
Another find still in the wrapper is this recipe binder for $3.53! I was really excited to find this one…
…because, as you may have seen in a previous post, this is how many of my recipes look! I want to leave them in their present form because the little scraps of paper remind me of where I was and who I was with when I wrote them down. The binder has clear plastic sleeves where I can store them and still see them.
Plus, I have recipes that I collected while I was in France that I want to leave as is. Notice that I had to convert the measurements to something I could understand. And figuring out the temperature on a French oven that only says 1, 2, 3 etc. on the dial is a whole different post! lol
Hmmm…this is the metamorphosis part of my post, but I can see this is going to take waaay longer than I thought! So this will have to be a metamorphosis in the works! I’ll do this while I watch The Bachelorette! (Oops! Did I say that out loud?)
And here’s my favorite find…a teeny-weeny, but just-right sized rocking chair! I am going to leave this one as a little teaser for next week’s post when I will reveal its occupants!
