Thrifty Finds

So, I know with moving and all, I shouldn't be stocking up on more "stuff".. especially according to the husband. And really, I have been very good lately about not purchasing anything more that we'll have to stick in a box for a few months. But.. I do have quite a few finds I haven't shared with you all yet. Care to take a peek?

I got these darling little glass bottles for 99 cents each at a yard sale I popped in on. I'm thinking there's a specific name for them.. but I can't remember it.. Anyone know?

These milk glass candlesticks were 49 cents each at a thrift store and the mini footed milk glass bowl was 99 cents at Goodwill. I *heart* milk glass!

This capiz shell circle art was another thrift store find at $2.99. Can you spy it in my living room?
Yep, it ended up right here:

My last find was this pretty milk glass bowl:
Don't you love the detailing on the rim? Yummm :) This bowl also found a home in the living room:

Unfortunately, most of these items got packed into boxes yesterday. But, I can't wait to give them a new home in our new home.

What have the rest of you picked up lately? Anyone else have a love for milk glass??

I don't have any milk glass, but I always admire it when I see it (especially at that price!)

Wow! Your living room is so beautiful. I wish I had that kind of talent.

Great finds! I looove milk glass and have a pretty nice sized collection myself. It is all still boxed up from our move though - waiting for us to find it a new home. :)

I *think* the glasses are decanters? They look so petit though. I love the milk glass items, so pretty and I don't have any so I'll add that to my "if I spot it" list. Must get!

-If you get rid of stuff as you pack and replace it with new stuff it all evens out right? Happy packing!
