Black and White and Thrify too!

Since I have had to take my mom daily for antibiotic infusions, I have been hitting the Goodwill almost everyday also because it is only a block away. On thursday I found this cute black and cream cup that I just had to have, I had no idea what I would do with it but couldn't leave it there.
On Saturday morning, hubby and I were able to slip out to a couple of garage sales and one brought me more black and white goodness.... a king size duvet cover, yardage of matching toile fabric, these pretty tassel ties and....

A yummy vintage tin.... handed down from Grandma (aren't those the best?)

It was filled with vintage sewing goods and lots of buttons...and you all know my passion for buttons!!!


I also got a pair of childrens red rubber boots to plant for my mom's birthday next month and a tea pot to make a cute garden stake....

All for under $8........ Priceless!
