Thrifty finds....

I just have to share a couple of things I found today.

First is this really cool little tea table. It's old. The top is kinda bubbled so unless I want to refinish it (ya, right) we'll keep a large doily or tea tablecloth on it.



Got the cute little tray behind the teapot for 50 cents, it was made in 1989, or at least it claims to have been!

Next....

How cute is this!!! It's a perfectly proportioned little teapot, a little Thumbelina (Hans Christian Anderson) teapot.




I think it must have been restaurant ware, just the perfect size for one. A bit pricey at $2.99, but it feels good to be a big spender occasionally.


and.....





Oh ya, we know what this is don't we... WEDGWOOD made in ENGLAND.



It's in perfect condition and it's sweet, well worth the $1.99. I'll have to find just the right trinket to go in it.

Got some great news. I put in a schedule change request and was approved. I will have kind of a split shift Sunday (not church hours) through Wed and then 4 hours on Thursday. It will take effect in about a week. I am really looking forward to not working into the wee hours of the morning any more. I will also be able to spend time with my granddaughter before and after school and not be rushed by having to start working.

Boy, are we gonna have fun!!!!

That's an interesting little teapot. I have never seen one like it before. Getting the shift change...that's a very good thing.

Hi, Valerie,
You found some wonderful goodies. I love Wedgewood, too. The table is perfect for displaying all of your pretties. And, I am with you, just throw a pretty topper on it! Hope your weekend is a good one. I am glad you are going to have better hours for work. Vicki
