A Little Browsing Going On

Hello Again From The French Hen's Nest,

   Wow! It's been a while.  The home search is still going on, I've found a couple of places that were perfect for me, but a little too far from my grandchildren, so I had to rethink.  I have my eye on a place now, and hope that it works out.

  Meanwhile, I have browsed just a little, and I'm going to share the finds with you.  Miss all of you, and hope to be back full time soon.  As soon as I find a house, you will be the first to know and see it.

  Here are some things that I found at the local Good Will.  It was really hard to pass on some of them, especially the Italian platter.  It was over two feet in length, and the detail was lovely.  Oh, I'll just show it to you.

Love this gate leg table for $50, it's ready for paint

Very nice painting for $10

This was $60

Bedside table for $40, just needs a little touch-up

This isn't a canvas, but it was still beautiful

And a great price!

There were 8 of these, made in Italy, love the blue

There were a few of these bowls, so delicate and pretty

Made in England, I think it is Johnson Brothers

Great pot for $6

You can't tell from this photo, but this is about two feet
long, and the detail is beautiful, very heavy and made in Italy, for just $10.
     I actually carried this around the whole time I was there, but finally put it back.

Gorgeous detail

Pretty little tea cup for $2

This bowl must have weighed 10 pounds, and
it was only $8

Love the detail on this mirror

A closer look

I'm always amazed at the art gallery there
   Well, that's it for browsing today.  Hope that you have enjoyed the trip.  

Till Nest Time,

  1. Very nice! Thank you for sharing these beautiful finds. :) Gentle Joy

  2. Your GW has much better merchandise and better prices. How could you put the platter back? It is beautiful. Of course it would take up a monstrous amount of space. Love the table.

    1. It wasn't easy, that was a very expensive platter, and the gate leg table was wonderful - I just need a garage.
      Thank you so much for stopping by.

  3. FuN shopping with you =)
    HPS and house shopping too !

    1. Thank you for the visit, happy you enjoyed the shopping.

  4. You sure did well picking out these items and saving money besides.

  5. Thank you, I appreciate your visit. Have a great Sunday.

  6. You might enjoy my recent post on my Pretty things blog. I just went thrifting. I love the blue china plates. I would pick up a find like that even though blue is not my colour. I found some glass plates a few weeks ago at Goodwill and went back this Saturday to see what else I could find. Love love this post

  7. Hello Janice, thank you so much. I love blue china, so it was really hard to pass on those. I'll check out your post now. Thank you so much for the visit.

  8. Jeannie, your GW has wonderful things. I would have taken that blue and white planter home and likely the stack of blue and white dishes. '-)
    I'm your latest follower.

    1. Hi Sarah, I wanted the blue and white plates, I just have no where to put them right now. I keep telling myself that they will be there again. Thank you so much for the visit, and for following. Hope you are having a wonderful day.

  9. You have an amazing GW. I would be tempted to buy that table and all the china.

    1. Hi Rhondi, Oh, believe me I was tempted, it's not often you find a table like that one, right? When the living situation changes, I'll be able to buy a thing or two. Thank you so much for the visit, have a great day.

  10. What great finds. I would love to snag that teacup.

  11. Oh that table - how did you ever leave that behind - get back and get that LOL !!!!
    And that mirror - and everything actually - that's some pretty good deals you get in your neck of the woods -
    They'd charge a fortune for that here in Montreal!

  12. Yes, those are Johnson Bros plates. I love the blue and white ones, I would have had to have those. The table would have tempted me too! Thanks for sharing!

  13. What lovely finds. Specially the picture.

  14. Fun, fun...love that table!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  15. It is a Johnson Bros. plate.... the pattern is Rose Chintz. They produced reproductions of it in the late 90s, early 2000s.I bought some... such a classic look!

  16. t finds. I love it when that happens. The tea cup was a bargain I have never found one that low in price.
    I also love the glass. Good days shopping


We Love It When You Comment!
