This tray is handpainted!

Gold handles, don't you just love them?

These are vintage salts, made from vaseline glass! They are beautiful!

These pups will be a gift to a person who has a large collections of pups!

This cocker reminded me of my dog "Elvis", who died a couple of years back. I still miss him!

This is a vintage cut glass cake plate. This one will be a gift!

Handpainted, this plate will also be added to someone's gift bag!

I don't know if I ever told you, but I just love gold handles. They just make me smile, big! Today, I wanted to get a good chicken taco for lunch. So, I traveled to my favorite taco place, that just happens to be next to my favorite thrift store. Everyone has to have a favorite thrift store, it is just a rule. Well, as luck would have it, I found this stunning, beautiful, gorgeous, (Can you tell I liked it?) hand painted gold tray. The tray has a rose lace around it. The best part, wait for it. . .it cost $4.00. Be still my heart! I just ran home to take a picture of it, to show you and so I could put it out! Can you believe it?

While I was there, I did pick up one or two other things. The tray was the most expensive. In my defense, (Why I need to defend myself, I am not sure?) some of these items will be for Christmas gifts. I have family and friends that just love vintage items. They get so excited when I gift them. I can buy more things, because they did not cost me much. They get a great gift, and most important, I have the pleasure of giving it away! You have to try it ladies, giving is the best!

Anyway, my heart is beginning to calm down. I just want to remind you of the give away at the end of the month. All you have to do is leave a comment. Each time you do, your name goes into the bowl, ready for Noah to pick!

Thank you for understanding this crazing woman (or at least pretending too)!

Blessings, Martha

The give away!

Martha my Dear...You forgot the most important were the tacos? I went to the thrift store too, but I was looking for snow boots for my daughter...found them, $5.00. Can't beat a good thrift store run especially when it's right next door to the best tacos.

I always look forward to seeing what pretties you will show us. I love them all, but I have a weakness for handpainted china and that blue plate has stolen my heart. Have a beautiful evening. Vicki

Hi Martha

Thanks so much for visiting! I love love to hear from everyone. You always find the most wonderful things. I love the salts, I've never seen any like them before. I have several clear glass ones.

Have a great night!

Hi Martha,

I so wish I could shop where you shop.
Getting the gold tray for $4, I can't believe that. What a bargain.
I love all the things you got.

You manage to find such beautiful items and certainly can't beat the thrill of the hunt and the great low prices! I always enjoy looking at your wonderful pictures. Each item is always displayed with such love to attention and detail. Wishing you a day of blessings! :) Tammy

Hi Martha! Thanks so much for stopping by. I love your great finds. $4.00? That would excite me too! Also really love the vaseline glass!

You must have expensive taste, loving all that gold! Who knows what you can find when you sneak into a thrift shop for just a minute! Pretty broaches too!
