My thift adventures this week.


 

I had a good time getting out and thrifting this week. The finds were good. Some condition issues were only fair. Any way getting out for a while in this bitter cold weather was a healthy move. I don't want to get cabin fever this early. I found this bright colored Fisher Price twin size duvet cover. It is in great condition and I can't wait to list it this week. The golden book is a Joan Walsh Anglund story book. I love her illustrations. The BBC TV book is well illustrated also and is written after a BBC television show from 1972. Both books have been well loved and are in fair to good condition. I don't usually buy books, but these just captured my heart.


 
This darling owl bud vase is only three inches tall, but I couldn't resist his eyes. I found a funky flower bed sheet and a Care Bear bed sheet along with one dozen brown, gray, and tan fabric napkins. The sheets are in great condition and two of the napkins are soiled. I will look them over, but I thought they would be nice with a chocolate themed event. I guess avoiding cabin fever includes chocolate. Hmmm...
 
 
My favorite find this week and the one that brightened up the week was this bright red square Pyrex bowl. It was in horrible condition, but the price was right and even if I couldn't get it clean I wasn't going into financial ruin for it. The number on the bottom is 525B. It measures 9 inches in diameter and holds 2.5 quarts. I just liked it because it was red. After soaking and scrubbing I got it to usable condition. It actually looked like some one had baked in it.
Most of the items this week will be listed on butterflyplace.storenvy.com or butterflyplace.etsy.com but I may try some on eBay. I hope everyone is enjoying thrifting and finding fun things as I am. I've been out again and can't wait to post my Saturday finds next week.

All you need now is the lid for the red hostess!!

The owl vase is so cute and you did a great job cleaning up the red Pyrex.

Jill is so positive, haha. It's going to be easier to find another red hostess with a lid than just the lid itself!

Owl vase = cuteness.

I found a lid alone listed on etsy. I guess it probably can be done.

Love that red Hostess dish! I have two but found both with lids. Guess you will have to head to eBay if you want the set. I also am loving that owl planter! It's so cute.

Lol, I am a sucker for kids books! Especially books from the thrift store. Maybe a trip is needed soon!
