Thrift Store Finds

I know I told you I would show you the swag lamp I had finished, but I decided I would save that for another post.
Instead I wanted to share my Thrift Store bargains with you today.
I had been wanting to start a collection of rolling pins for a while now, but I never seemed to happen upon any anywhere to buy.
I was pretty thrilled when I came across two!
And both had coloured handles which I had been looking for.

Here is a close-up view of the silverware.
Real silverware-I love it!

My daughter sent me a couple of photos last week that I wanted to show you.
This is Lambert on his 7th birthday.
I think he just gets handsomer and handsomer with every passing year!
And guess who has a new puppy now?
I think it's safe to say this is his new best buddy.
This is my outdoor girl, Starlet. (on the right)
She's probably hunting for crawdads or tadpoles!
She is also an excellent marksman girl.
She can shoot a bullseye with a bow and arrow or a gun.
I think I need to talk her into coming up here for Moose hunting season next Fall!
I also received some cute photos from my DIL of Reece and Brigam.
I see our little Reecie has gotten his summer buzz....
The boys are really enjoying playing together now that Brig has gotten a little older.
All I can say is watch out for the mischief now, Mom!
What one doesn't think of, the other will.
I know this from experience, of course.
That's all from my corner of the world.
What plans do you have for your weekend?






  1. Those vintage rolling pins look so pristine! Great find. Love seeing the boys with their buzz cuts for summer...lots cooler and easier to care for.

  2. Such cute photos! The one of sleeping Lambert and puppy is beyond precious! Great that you can finally start that rolling pin collection!

  19. What a wonderful bunch. I am sure you are so happy to get those pictures. I love the one with the sleeping boy and dog. That is just priceless. I think all boys need dogs.
    Girls too. I am so glad your Grand daughter gets to do all of that marksmanship. My Dad always said, " Ladies don't do that."
    I also loved all of your wonderful finds. I never find anything good. :)
