 I am in love with vintage aprons, everytime I am out thrifting I check the racks for them and usually toss 1 or 2 into my cart. For $1 each how could you not?? The purple one was my grandmothers, one of the few things I have of hers :)

I was busy this past weekend accumulating all the treasures I could lol, I made a visit to a my "glass lady" as I like to call her, she is a lovely lady who has a knack for finding the best glassware, she then sells it for a bit of profit.

I picked up the German pottery collection from her for a very reasonable price, and while I was getting ready to photograph it I knocked over the vase on the right hand side and broke the neck of it!! OMG It's currently sitting and drying with white glue :(

The Festivo candlestickas as well as the German silver star trek looking ones also came from her! Aren't they lovely? The crystal art deco style candlesticks I picked up at VV for $6.99 they were filthy and I don't think they realized that they were crystal.

Snowflakes and turquoise Butterprint

Today was a MASSIVE thrift day! I attempted the undoable......I went to every single Value Village my city has and I went to several Goodwills as well!! And for my efforts I was rewarded greatly!

On my travels I picked up an 043 turquoise snowflake without a lid for $3, it was filthy but nothing a little elbow grease couldn't get rid of! A 444 turquoise butterprint cinderella bowl in MINT condition, I did pay $7 for that one though as Value Village is starting to catch on that there are Pyrex collectors out there. A dishwater damaged blue 442, not sure why I took this one as it's pretty dull but for $2 I couldn't leave it, and it's such a pretty shade of blue, almost royal.

 A lime green 232 lasagna pan also in rough shape but I don't have a lasagna pan yet and for $3 how could I not take it home? I also picked up a turquoise hostess dish for $1.99, a pair of black glass candle holders for $2.99, a set of beautiful white AK Kaiser German candle holder $8, a 1980s white pottery seagull for $5, a Fire King milkglass vase with base for $2 and a mid century modern adjustable black lamp for $14, perfect for my spare bedroom!!
