A Few Good Finds

Hello Again From The French Hen's Nest,

  As many of you know, I am staying with my daughter, still looking for a house, with all of my worldly possessions packed in storage.  Occasionally. when I'm shopping, I find something that I just can't resist, most of the time I just pass on my good finds, but when it involves blue and white, it is very difficult for me.
  I visited  Good Will last night, and happened upon a blue and white box to add to my collection.  I very rarely find porcelain boxes, especially at a good price, so when I do, I must buy it.  I only paid 96 cents for this little beauty, and I am thrilled to have it.  The design is lovely, and the blues are just right.  The photos not so great.

                              Some of my collection

   This is a wreath that I found at another Good Will.  It was only $2.  I bought green ribbon to make a Fall wreath for my daughter (she loves green), and voila, perfect together.  


This coffee table had so much storage,
had a sold sticker on it

Love a big coffee table

This is a great little table

I would paint this

Nice antique piece

These were about $24 each

This only $17

Johnson Brothers plates for $1.96 each

These were $3.96, made in France, I bought
one, only blue and white

This wall hanging was only a few dollars

   I was visiting a friend in my old neighborhood, and happened upon these pictures.  All were free.  Sorry about the glare, they are in the back of my car until I can take them to storage.  What a great find!

This is one of my favorites.  The colors are actually
more vibrant than shown.

And last, but not least, my very favorite, a canvas for $5.
Really like paintings of fruit

This definitely came home with me

  Well, that's it for now, hope that you enjoyed seeing my latest finds.  
Till Nest Time,

    Have a good Blue Monday.

    1. Hi Sally, Thank you so much for the help, and for hosting each week. Have a great Thanksgiving.

  2. Hi Jeannie, Wow! you had a wonderful time finding all of your treasures. Love the blue and white and the wonderful canvas painting of the fruit. All in all a good time finding great stuff. Now where will it all go now. Smile. Good luck finding a new home.
    xo, Jeanne (no i)

    1. Thank you Jeanne, I need some luck, the hunt just isn't going as quickly as I had hoped it would. Have a great Thanksgiving, and thank you for the visit.

  3. Don't you just love thrift stores? especially if you know they truly go to charity, like Goodwill.... Makes you feel good about supporting them.... Great finds.... Too bad about the sold tag... :(
    Happy Thanksgiving :)

    1. Hi Crystelle, I really do love them, and there are quite a few really good ones around here, and I've found some fabulous things in the past. Hope that you have a Happy Thanksgiving as well.

  4. I love looking for treasures too. I bet your daughter loved the wreath. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Good Morning Joy, my daughter is always happy when I decorate for her, and she was happy with the wreath. Thank you so much for the visit, and hope that you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  5. I'm another one who is a sucker for fruit paintings! You made some real scores, congratulations!

  6. Hi Michele, I especially like them if the bowls are blue and white, but this one will work. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
