I couldnt stand it any longer!!!!


Yup, I hit the thrift store this afternoon. I havent been in a while so while in town I thought why not. I found some things. I got 2 pictures, 2 candle holders the will become a make-do one of these days, a cutting board, and 3 pewter mugs.

Look at those candle holders, makes me wonder who had these 1970's things around their house.

I just love this picture. It makes me want to pull up a chair and sit by the fire and chat away with a dear friend.



This picture I bought for the frame, but I think I like the picture that is it. Whatcha think?



And all for the bargain price of $13 and some change.

I went to a couple of antique malls myself yesterday. I have some Christmas money that I have been holding on to. Guess what? I still have it. Nothing really struck my fancy.

It's a sickness, isn't it, Tammy? LOL

You got some great deals, especially on the pewter mugs.

It can be a sickness. Angie and I went to an antique store near us last Thursday. I have not been antiquing in a long time. I didnt get much. Well, I didnt get anything really. A wooden meat hammer (?) I guess thats what it is.

I dont know if the mugs are real pewter or not. One of them has an engraving on it. From 1976 tournament. Not sure about that one. Any suggestions on how to tell if they are real?

I love those kinds of finds too. I need to go one of these days too. I was going to go last night after we ate at Applebee's but I had kids with me and it was so, so cold. So I will probably hit the thrift stores on Sat.
