Thrifted Treasures - Pie Vent & Ironstone!

***Edited to add:  My fabby finds from last week were the most viewed  post from Kathe With an E's awesome YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT linky party!  Woo hoo!!  Thank you Everybody and huge thank you and shout out to one terrific and gracious host --KATHE (that's with an E ;)  If you haven't checked out her wonderful blog and link party, please do yourself a favor and head on over!  You simply must check out her amazing CANDLEWICK table setting.  I drool over it!!***

Hello All :)  I have been off since last Tuesday and boy, it is not going to be easy to get back to the ol' grind tomorrow!  I was sick last week with an upper respiratory infection so that was a bummer.  Even though I was feeling better by Saturday, the heat was awful so we decided not to head to Richmond and to just thrift locally.  The first stop was SALVO.

I saw this beautiful white pitcher sitting on the shelf:

I picked it up, wondering if it was real English ironstone, flipped it over to see if it was marked and saw this:

Yep, it's real - LOL!  Not only was I thrilled to find my first piece of ironstone, I actually laughed out loud that the answer to the question in my head was answered so clearly :)  It was $10.  I also picked this up:

It is an ashtray but will live in my sun room as art.  It was $1 and so was this plastic tortoise shell frame:

 Next, we headed to GW.  This next find is my favorite of the day:

It's a fruit pie vent or pie bird!  Isn't it precious!?

I have been wanting one of these --which is hysterical because I have NEVER baked a pie in my life unless it was a Mrs. Smith's -- but who knows, with this sweet little birdie, maybe I'll be baking up a storm!  It came from GW and was $1.  This chair was $8:

It needs some work but it's super solid and is going to look amazing in white with a re-upholstered seat!

These next items came from GW also:

4 iridescent glasses, 99c each!

4 Anchor Hocking pink argyle glasses, 99c each

Frosted glass platter with lemon slice graphic, 99c

Indiana Glass Celebrations punch bowl, rose pattern $4
After GW, we headed over to Two Times New, a resale/thrift mall.  Dan and I found this beautiful china cabinet.  I've been looking for one --Craigslist and SALVO --but just haven't found the right one...until this one:

Thomasville breakfront lighted china curio cabinet from their Collector's cherry collection.  BEAUTIFUL.  The $699 price tag had been reduced to $399!  

So that's all for me this week.  If the weather breaks, we'll head to Richmond this weekend --yep, it's barely Monday night and I'm already thinking WEEKEND ;)  I'm linking up!

  19. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?

    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks

  20. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
