Some Pretty Finds

I love buttons, but try not to buy them because I just don't know what to do with all the beautiful buttons I see. BUT, I found this little stack of mother of pearl buttons for $1.00 and I couldn't resist them. I sat them next to some shiny trinkets when I came home and they've been there ever since.

This is a man's Stetson hat. Now you may ask, "Why did you buy that?" My answer is because it was only $0.39! It's in really nice condition and it's a true Stetson with the little bow inside and everything. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but it was such a great buy I couldn't pass it up.

I was with my favorite thrifting buddy Deanna (of Timeless Things) when I found this Homer Laughlen (sp) plate for only $0.39 and of course I can't pass up anything cheap, I mean, thrifty especially if it has a pretty pink rose!

This lovely rose covered soap dish is an I.W. Rice that I found at a thrift store. I don't remember how much it was but I know it was under a couple of dollars. The picture didn't turn out to well, but it's adorable in real life.

Here's another Deanna find. Of course I was with her when I found these adorable little puppies for only $0.99. Deanna is such good luck!! I always find the best bargains when I'm with her.

The two (larger) rose decanters I found at an antique store marked down to $9.95 which I thought wasn't too badly priced considering that they have roses on them! I'm not sure what they were for. Perfume maybe or just pretty decorations? The little salt shaker I found at a flea market for only $1.00. Love it when that happens!
Hope you all have a beautiful and blessed day!
Patricia :o)

I have one of those bottles in aqua but it has no stopper. I have read that they are French perfume bottles. Ive been looking for a stopper ever since lol.

Those are some beautiful treasures, I agree! I especially like the easel that the rosey plate is on! Everything is so lovely!

Thank you for entering my giveaway! Good luck to you! :)

Well sweetie, you found the right home for those mother of pearl buttons! The plate look fabulous and I love the way you have it displayed. Did you take a photo of the inside of the hat? My aunt Alicia loved the story and the fact that it came from Joske's.

Hopefully we can meet up again on Wednesday!

I just happened to stumble upon your blog and I think that it is lovely with so many sweet things. Do you have any table runners with birds as I'm doing a "bird" theme for my daughter's baby's a girl.

What a treasure trove you collected! The luck you had...I have not seen prices so low since soda was 10 cents...and certainly not on such pretties.

Great treasurers - of course I love anything "OLD"!
