September Thrifted Finds

Between some good Church Sales, thrift store shopping and a few garage sales I was pleased with September's Thrifted Finds.

Love the garden fresh carrots, they smell and taste so good, displayed in a vintage Pyrex Holidays casserole, Tupperware Autumn tumblers, Sadler cream and sugar, a fall colour lidded box, a green glass serving plate, 2 old sealers and a wrinkled Monday embroidered tea towel plus a small pumpkin from Hilltop Gardens Farm and here too.



Love finding white. The Hunt Club large white teapot and a TG Green white basket weave pitcher were nice surprises. 



Bright coloured glass, a few vintage costume jewelry necklaces and a rose decorated bell grouped on a black tray.



On our way back from Alberta we stopped in Salmon Arm and found a hand full of graniteware, well worn. 



Another stop at a big thrift store added some more kitchenware finds, the batter bowl is a Grindley.



The teapot is a Sky McGhie which surprised me because it is very plain.



The Church sales always have something special and the brass Sanctuary bell was my favourite find so far.



The mid-century decanter and delicate glasses were found at a garage sale. One of the set of six little glasses was broken before we arrived.



The angel below is a Wings of Tranquility "Bless this home" and the pears are from the tree in the back yard - the tree that had 3 big branches break off - see that picture at the end of an earlier post.



I love this sealer with the wire handle and well aged blue lid. The angel candle holders colour mixed so well with the jar.



While trimming the almost finished rose bushes today, removing rose hips, dead bits, leaves with spots, by accident snipped one of the last 3 blossoms. I will admit that having that rose in the house was very cheering, shown here with my cup of tea, things on the kitchen counter, normal stuff. Moved it to an open window to keep fresh overnight.



Happy Autumn.

am loving the cooler days and the changing colours (Coastal BC).

Thanks for visiting.

  7. Wow you have so many great finds. I love the sanctuary bell. I wonder what the story behind that piece is? I have always wished I had an eye for finding the jems and not the junk. You definatly do. Thanks for sharing. Would love to see where you use these items.

  9. Loved seeing the treasures you collected last month, if I could walk into A Vintage Green right now I'd be leaving with the T G Green jug, the graniteware and the wooden stool. Seriously.
    Happy Mosaic Monday!

  20. How absolutely lucky you are to find so many excellent treasures. Do you keep it all or sell things you find? Since we live few miles out from town and stores I don't get to shop for wonderful finds as often as I'd like but easier on wallet. I do swoon and wish I could find such goodies like yours but then where would I put them all since we live in small house.
    When we downsized we really did it, still miss some of my treasures previously discarded. Have wonderful Fall rest of week
