THRIFT SHOPPING



I've been out and about recently and here's a few things I brought home with me.

I was so happy to find another little English Cottage item. This is a small canister that's only 3-1/2"/9cm tall. It's about the size of a coffee cup so I don't know if it's from a child's set or not.



I was surprised to find these hadn't been sold before Christmas. And I was very happy to find them at 25% off!



I've been (inactively) looking for a toy iron for years and stumbled on one last week. My toy ironing board finally has a mate!


This is how we measure snowfall in Boston:

Good finds and I love how you are measuring the snow. Speaking of snow it is snowing hard in the lakes region of NH

Glad to see you and enjoyed all your finds. Never saw snow being measured in that fashion. Trust all is well with you and family.
