Hello! Here are the spoils from a recent trip to the Value Village thrift store.

I picked up a grab-bag of ceramic coasters, based on the purple one I could see on the top of the stack. You can't open the bags before you buy them, so don't see exactly what you're getting and luck plays into it. In this bag, I got three lovely coasters, originally from Crate and Barrel, with an imprint of leaves on them, and two plain ones that aren't as attractive as the others but sure to be useful.

I thought this Birk's silver-plated sugar bowl would make a perfect receptacle for a beeswax votive candle.

My love of coloured glass caused me to get these two cute glasses, made by Libbey Glass USA. They still make and sell this style of glass, called a Gibraltar glass, but the blue ones were discontinued some time ago. They look like they're brand new though.

We can always use some fresh, never-used-before, cotton napkins because we use cloth napkins all the time. I love the denim jacquard fabric these ones are made of, and the 50 cents a piece price tag was right.

This cotton kitchen towel is nice and soft with use, but stain free and cute, with still plenty of use left in it.

Granted these 100% cotton pillow cases, from Ok Olive Kids, were designed for children, but I thought the cute print would be fun to add to our mix-and-match assortment of bedroom linens.

And that's it. I think I did pretty well for under $15 in total.

    ooh, I adore those blue glasses and the farm print pillowcases are awesome! You could even use them as fabric for something else, if you wanted to sew.

    What lovely luck in finds Loulou! Those pillowcases are sweet and I love those blue glasses! I actually have similar ones that are clear…how much prettier that blue is though. I definitely am having a hankering for visiting the thrift store now, hehe. Have a gorgeous week lady!
