I am going to share my thrifty finds for the week. I lucked up and found two very cute soup tureens. I have been looking for what seems likes years to find even one.
The one on the right has pretty handles and a design around the edge, with a stripe pattern all over. So cute. The one on the left has the fruit pattern around it and an apple for the lid top - just perfect for this time of the year. This is the one that got chipped up less then a block from home. Ugh...Coming to my house is a blind curve that immediately goes into a steep hill down. When I got to the top of the hill to start down there was a fire truck backing up the hill! I slammed on my breaks and the bag with the tureen went crashing to the floor. I am alright except for shaking like a leaf! The tureen got chipped at the very top by the lid. That is the white stuff you see on my island - chip tureen!
At lease I can turn the chip to the back and you want even be able to tell. Here is a close up of the cute apple shaped handle for the lid. So sweet!
The tureens where only $4.74 each. Score! I also found this new "old carpenters tool box" for only $1.74. I am going to paint and distress to give it some character.
I also want to show you my new flying pig. I LOVE flying pigs. They are just so fun. Mr. Pig was not found at the thrift store, but for $15, I count him as a thrifty find. He was found at Kirklands.
He is heavy for his size, just like a pig should be. Yes, it was love at first sight! I hope you enjoyed my finds for this week. Did you find anything you have been on the hunt for? Or did you find something you did not even know you needed until you saw it? Make it an amazing day!
