"My Passion...Collecting"

     I hope your weekend has been a good one so far. Mine started out with no real plans for thrifting out of town, because of needing to study. Instead I stayed close to home and look at what I found right outside my front door. The hardest part was informing my husband that I just found another chaise lounge...for only $20.00. And I picked up this rusted and faded trash can with just a hint of the green coloring showing and a platter for $3.00. I know...I's not in good condition but I just had to have it.

     Unfortunately I didn't capture a good enough picture to share at the moment, but trust me it's beautiful. The platter is medium in size with a faded blue trim. And on the brim of the platter is a small bird with roses all around it.

      I love finding the unexpected and I'm not daunted at all on the condition of this lounge. I'm going to take it to be re upholstered and I hope you will return for the reveal of the "new" chaise lounge.

     Today's finds
