Thrifty Treasures



It's that time again. I'm a little late to the party this week. I found a few neat things this week. I thought this flag was going to be wood when I saw it from a distance. It's plastic but I thought it might be cute hanging on the front porch.

I love cake plates. I found two really pretty ones! Can't wait to bake some goodies to put on here. This one is fancy smancy.

And last but not least, check these glasses out! $2 for the set! I don't know what kind they are but they are so pretty. I spent a whopping total of $6 all day!!

  1. Hello Shauna - you have some terrific finds! That fancy cake stand is so...FANCY! I've never seen one quite like that. Love the dangly crystals. What a cute, whimsical flag - it really would look good hanging on your front porch! And those glasses are so fabulous. I love the color and the decorative base is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

    Blessings,

  8. Those are called Boopie glasses and they are usually very expensive! The dark green are the most coveted. I saw some sell at an auction once for $95.00 EACH. Great finds!

  16. Hey Shauna,

    Thanks for stopping by Armchair Housewife and leaving a comment. Totally love your finds, too! Really sweet cake stands, I have been on the hunt for more of those myself lately. And the glasses are fantastic, I have a few pieces of amber colored glass that I have collected over the winter and spring this year that I can't wit to use in the fall.

    I also like the look of your blog overall, consider yourself "followed". ;)
