More Thrifty Treasures and Setbacks




It has been a busy month with a few set backs.  Baseball tournaments have begun and will continue through the entire month of June!  UGGGHH!

A car accident put some setbacks in our plans this month!  I was traveling home from town with my kids and a friend of theirs when a 20 year old college student made a u-turn into lane.  I had no time to slow down and get out of the way.  I broke my right thumb and sprained my wrist.  No one else was injured!  Thank God!  The kid that hit me had no insurance and my car (affectionately known as "Dirty Girdy") suffered $5k in damage.  Needless to say I haven't had use of my right hand for about a week (which is no picknik!).

I have now resumed somewhat of a normal life and was fortunate enough to travel down to Sarasota over the weekend with my daughter to visit my mom.  We had a great time shopping, goofing off and eating way to much food!

Here is a few of my bargains




All of these were found at a Goodwill in Sarasota

Ironstone pitcher $3


Large glass apothecary jar for $7


Baseball Nutcracker for my son $1


Hanging wall pocket $1


I bought these pillows at a furniture store for $5.99 each. 
You can't buy a 20"x20" pillow form for that price anywhere!


16 piece snack set for $12 at my local hospice thrift store! 
I love snack plates and have a special post planned for them!

Each plate and cup have the latin meaning for each fruit!

I also bought a few books and came home with a bunch of stuff from my moms!  I took tons of pictures of her house that I will be featuring this week too!

My weekend was finished off with a trip to the Tampa Performing Arts center to see Mary Poppins!  More from that soon too!

I am linking up to these parties;

I love new friends!  If you like what you see become a follower!

I am so glad to here that no one was too seriously hurt in the accident. Thank God.
I feel your pain with all the baseball games. Seems as if they will never end out here in AZ!! BUT, my youngest son is happy with games and practices every night of the week, so I shouldn't complain.
I love the ironstone pitcher and apothecary jar. Great finds. :)
Glad to see you back in blogland.
Fondly,
Ann

Thankfully no serious injuries.

Great finds. I think that little ironstone pitcher has to be my favorite!

I'm in Tampa and I've heard Sarasota has some of the best bargains around. My son goes to school there, maybe you can let me know of some good places to go when school starts up again ;).
