November Thrifted Finds

November thrifted finds were almost all found at Church Christmas Bazaars. My favourites included the Como Lake Presbyterian Annual Bazaar, St. Johns Tea and Bazaar and St Catherines Bazaar. I also found a few pieces at the local thrift stores.


Love finding elephants and silverplate.


Learned that vintage blue transferware container was a toothbrush holder. First calendar plate I've found, 1937 from Tisdale Sask.



Quail Family



Group of smalls.



Just had to buy the water jug and matching pot. Pitcher makes a lovely vase for dried hydrangea.



Final carrots and pole beans (poor spaghetti squash froze) harvest in early November. A treat to find woodenware and vintage mashers.



Poppies are one of my favourite flowers and this brass urn is a new favourite in my collection.



Mid Century Egg cups, a devilled egg plate and rosebud cups too.


I love anything wood and finding a vintage plywood artist palette was my best thrift store find (it was flat under a pile of craft supplies - major happy score). Great patina on the vintage well used German cabbage slicer.



After putting this post together I realized that November was actually a pretty nice month for new to me finds. I love Christmas Bazaars and a found myself a cozy infinity scarf, some tasty gingerbread cookies and I have fresh holly in my vases. Just so I remember, we had our first snow on Friday overnight. 

Hugs friends, very glad I have found so many wonderful friends in the blogging community.

Saying special hellos this week to EddieBrenda, Judy, Claudia, Jilda and Rick.

Thanks for visiting.

  9. Great finds! I need to go pick some holly, it still amazes me that we find it growing so many places in the wild on Vancouver Island. Cheers!

  23. What beautiful finds! Do you know where the scene on the 1937 calendar plate is? It looks to me like it is Bruges in Belgium. The tall bell tower in the market square is in the background and the bridge in the foreground crosses one of the canals. I think it is called the Green Bridge.
