~HOSPICE FINDS~

Hello Guys....YIPPEE!!! Look at what I found last month at the Hospice thrift store....This SCREAMED my name when I walked in the door...Had to bring this one home to add to my other Busts...My Bust enlargement is still growning guys...ha ha!! Is she not a beauty....Not a chip on her...as she's not a chippy kinda gal...Now I did pay $40.00 for her but than is a real steal trust me...she is my biggest bust now...Isn't she a beauty???
Got 8 Christmas glasses...These match my Granddaughter Christmas China so had to get them for her...only .50 each....I know she'll love these....


Big yellow soup tureen for $6.50

Loved these flowers in the vase $3.50




Oh and look at these pillows they match my couch just like they were made for it....$ 7.50 each Oh can you love pillows...






Found 10 of these napkins and you can see the original price was $3.00 each...I paid $2.50 for all of them and new...



Got this table cloth $1.50 and it matches the napkins...now I need to do a table with these maybe using my Yellow dishes I got last year from Hospice...


Another one for $1.50...think I'm going to give this to my Daughter Gina...


A bag of apples $2.50...



Loved this tray Sweet...$2.00


A wire dish rack from ca. 1930's....Oh girls I loved getting this piece...I had one before in my storage barn...but when I got robbed in 2000 it was one of many things that was stolen from me...I think I'll put this one in my kitchen with plates in it ha ha!!
I want to wish all you a GREAT labor day weekend...May it be a fun and safe one for you...My Daughter Dawna is coming to rob me of all my Roo's that I also got from Hospice last month ha ha!! I'll see all of you next week...
Hugs and Smiles Glria

Gloria, I love your big bust best! ;O) And it's alot cheaper to enlarge that way! LOL! Love all your thrift store finds. Wish I were closer so I could shop w/ you. Enjoy your daughter being there with you! Have a great weekend!

Gloria thanks honey for stopping over to check out my wreaths. My girls always send me photos to duplicate so they don't have to pay to have someone else to them. I love those glasses, napkins and that soup tureen. I did find a couple of soup tureens on my drive to Tennessee. Have a wonderful week-end.

You have the best luck at Hospice & what amazing treasures you brought home. Guess I just don't have the "eye" when I go thrifting. ☺ Diane

Oh Gloria, you do always find the greatest things. We don't have a Hospice thrift shop here, or at least not one that I can find. I love all of your treasures. Hope you have a super weekend. Hugs, Marty

Your bust is just soooo pretty and sweet! She called and you answered! I'd like to get RID of my own large bust... hee hee
Your tureen is lovely and I can't believe you got pillows that coordinate so well with your sofa. All good finds, Gloria. Have a good weekend.

Dawn said...

Great finds Gloria. I can't believe those pillows. They look like they were made just for your couch! Really beautiful.

Blondie's Journal said...

Gloria,

I love the loot you came home with this time. I had no idea you like busts. Do you keep them together or spread out? Tee hee!

The pillows do match your couch beautifully, and I am counting on a tablescape with those pretty napkins and tablecloth!! And that vase with the flowers is worth way more than $3.50.


Wishing you a fun & safe holiday weekend and wonderful visit with Dawna.

xoxo
Janie

Heather said...

Happy weekend

bj said...

O, boy, you really got some great things! That bust is to die for.
I love going to the Hospice Store here. The great thing is that it is 3 blocks from me.
Thanks for sharing all this with us. I'm looking forward to a nice tablesetting using your new napkins and cloth. Oh, I do love pretty tablecloths. I remember in the old RMS days that people kept telling me to "lose the tablecloth" and I kept saying, "no way!!"
Have a great Labor Day....

xinex said...

You are so fortunate finding all these treasures with such good prices, Gloria...Christine

Melissa Miller said...

Gloria all of your finds are beautiful girl! Love the dish rack too. I didn't know you were robbeed in 2000? That is scary. I hope everyone was all right.

Have a wonderful Holiday weekend.
~Melissa :)

PS I sent you an e-mail. I just
LOVE my special new lamp! Thank you!!!!

Bill said...

Hi Gloria,

Your new bust is so beautiful (not sure I ever said that to a lady before!)!!! ;)

The pillows are very elegant. I'll bet they cost their first owner a small fortune! Can't wait to see the tablescape you do with your new tablecloth, napkins, and yellow dishes!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Your "hugs and smiles" mean so much to so many of us! Count me as one of your many fans!

Bye for now,
Bill

squawmama said...

Hey girlfriend... Love your BUST! LOL And all the other treasures you got... You sure know how to shop my friend! When & if I ever do get another house (one not on wheels) I will be calling you for help. Have a safe weekend my friend...

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

What great finds, Gloria!! I never have such great luck thrifting!

SmilingSally said...

Gloria, now I've finally figured out why there's never anything left in the thrift stores I visit...you've already been there and cleaned 'em out!

I love your new, Big bust. Now stand up straight! LOL

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi dear Gloria, everything is gorgeous but the bust really grabs my attention! Oh, I love it!!!!!! You blessed girl, you!!!!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend and enjoy your sweet self!

Hi Sweetie!
I so love to come and visit you. This is just a beautiful post, and I so love this little Girl bust. I would've bought her too. What a wonderful purchase. She is beautiful. I love the table cloths, the napkins what a find, and that tray is darling. The apples will be cute for the holidays. I love to put a few on my bushes out front to give them a brush of red color. I wish we had a Hospice thrift store around here, but I don't think so. I am going to check tho. I'll keep you posted on that. Can I be adopted so that you shop for me too? What a great shopper you are. Love the finds. Just love them. Have a beautiful day sweetie. Stop by and read my PS post. I fractured my foot in two places and am in a darn boot for (4) weeks. If it doesn't heal then I will have to go into a hard cast. Being an insulin diabetic is the pits. So many things happen to us, with no explanations. Take care sweetie. Country hugs and love, Sherry
