Thrifty Thursday #104

I wandered out last Saturday morning and drove around the neighborhood looking for yard sales.
I found one which made it worth my while.
 
 
I spotted this tower of silver trays as I walked up the driveway.
I don't know what they are, but I like them!
They were only fifty cents.
 
 
They're smaller around than dinner plates.
They come apart and each one is like a little cake stand.
Two have flower patterns and two have heart patterns.
I'm thinking about painting them.
Anybody know what they are?

 
At the same sale, I saw two large lacy items sticking out of a garbage bag.
I assumed they were lacy table cloths.
At a dollar each, I was super excited with my find- especially noticing that they seemed
new- no stains.
I got home and opened them up for a closer look. It turns out they are curtains, not table cloths.
Oh well, a pretty purchase either way.:)

 
I only found a few items on my weekly thrift store stop.
 
This saucer is pretty with its white flowers.
I got this for fifty cents for my friend who is planning a plate display covering one of her walls.
This will be a lovely addition to that.

 
I got this beautiful table runner for a dollar.
It has a very small stain in the center, but the embroidery work is fantastic, so I got it anyway.

 
I got  this narrow silver platter for a dollar.
You just never know when you'll need a silver platter.
 
I wish you all luck with your secondhand shopping this weekend.
 
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
