{It's All In A Day's Work---Or Just Goofing Off!}


Well isn't this just the cutest tea pot lamp you've ever seen? And I paid a whopping $1.99 for her! She just needs a new shade and a little buffing up. It will be perfect for decor when I do tea parties for my grandgirls. 

YEP, WENT THRIFTING AGAIN!


I decided to do a little thrifting again but this time I went to town. For those of you that wonder what TOWN is for me, well, it's about 30-35 miles or so to the closest thrift store. I winded up hitting about 4 thrift stores. It was a nice outing. I took my time, stopped when I wanted too and even went by Starbucks and got myself a breakfast sandwich and my favorite...Passion Tea. 


So let me just show you what else I scored thrifting. Yep, I take it by spells but I have had TWO spells recently so my man said I need to take a dose of Ibuprofen to get OVER the spell! LOL!  


Awe...don't you just love this cute tea pot? On the bottom of the tea pot is says Teleflora  1985. I snatched it up for $2.50. Look what I saw online when looking information it.

I think I got a deal! Hey I ain't knocking anyone trying to sell things by any means as I need to sell over half of what I have in my little She-Shed but $18 compared to $2.50 made me smile!


 My mercy y'all! The last thing I needed was another snack plate! But I only had a few of the white ones as all of mine are the clear. So when I spotted 4 of these for 99 cents each I decided I needed wanted them.

 I love throws and any kind. This summer weight throw was brand new. I got it for $3.00. So many ideas for this cute little throw. A picnic on the ground, (though I will need help getting off the ground) the beach, table topper, and well, it will be used. 


I can always use a glass bowl especially when melting chocolates in the microwave. Perfect size for $1.99.

  
I couldn't pass this up as it was a perfect size. Very nice, well kept and lots of compartments. I have a smaller cloth one is that is black and I really enjoyed it when we went on our mountain trip in late February. This one is bigger and much nicer. I gave it a good cleaning and it's ready to go with me. Spent $3.99 for it.  



This was an Estee Lauder keepsake box. There was plastic still wrapped around the zippers so the gal kept the gift inside and ditched this pretty zippered box. Well of course the ideas for this gold and red beauty are endless. Makeup box, storage box, use for decor. Paid $2.99 for it. 


Another hat for the beach! Croft and Barrows hat for $1.99. The flower can be taken off  too. Yep, cleaned her up good and she's ready to go.  


Spotted this cute twig wreath. I will be replacing the floral pieces and heart. As soon as I saw it my first thought was Woodland. I love the woodland themes and how cute will this be for a woodsy bohemian party? I figure for $2.50 I can use this for different decor. 


Okay, so told myself I would not spend more than $25 thrifting and my total amount with tax was $26.65. Yep, went over a tad but boy did I have a fun time!  

And I can't end today without showing you what else I made with my abundance of Zucchini.  





Anyone care for a slice of Zucchini bread or a muffin? Family got bread, a few friends got some muffins and I have frozen muffins to enjoy later.


I also had some fresh blueberries in the freezer that needed to be cooked so made several batches of blueberry muffins. It all worked out perfectly with the baking as our Sunday school class adopted our local EMS/Firefighter's and wanted to minister to two shifts with a breakfast. So several of us got together and got our goodies to them in time that the shift going off and the new shift coming on could enjoy. We carried them baked breakfast casseroles, bread, muffins, milk, juices and etc. They were so appreciative and we felt blessed. 


And since they have a kitchen they got to keep the cute container and dishclothes. When planting seeds of kindness for Jesus your TIME isn't wasted.  

 And for the Men in your life that you celebrated for Father's Day...I hope that it was a GOOD ONE. Our girls are blessed to call this man daddy.

 

I hope that you all have a wonderful week and remember.....
Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Thanks Connie. I would let you borrow the hat girl! Ministering to the community is a great way to reach out to others for sure. Lord, we all need ministering too for sure but it seems that in churches today everyone becomes so comfortable with their own peeps and fail to reach out. I am remind that it is the sick that needs a doctor. (Smiles to you dear lady)

  4. Wow cindy, you scored a lot of fun things at great prices, too! Of course, my favorites were the teapot lamp and the teapot. I have a teapot lamp that my dear sister gave to me, and I just love it. I have it on a timer, so it comes on every evening.
    You were sure busy with baking. I know all your recipients were grateful for those blessings. Love the pic of your daughters with their dad...so sweet!

  18. Cindy!!
    OMG!!!! I LOVE everything you bought at the Thrift shops!! WOW, so to go shopping it is a good 30-35 minute drive!! I literaly live right next to the largest shopping district in our County!!!But yet, I live in a closed development where there is no through traffic which makes it quiet and private and we have woods on the other side of us and the Interstate (81) behind us.. Now that i am no longer working I plan on making some zucchini bread!! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments!!
    Hugs,
    Debbie

  19. STOP! STOP IT!! I can't take it... your thrifting treasures! I need to go shopping with you, (when I have the time).

  20. You and I have much the same taste! I used to have an almost identical teapot lamp...my BIL gave it to me years ago for my birthday. I don't know what happened to it in our many moves. AND, I had the exact same little teapot for years. I had about 50 of them and had to get rid of some of my collection. The moves were just taking their toll on them! What a great shopping trip you had...love all those treasures! Love and hugs!
