Steals and deals

Hello, all,

We are finally having some more typical weather for this area, along with long overdue sunshine. After many days indoors hiding from the cold and rain,  it was great to go to Bible study today. Since the church is less than a block from the Sand Dollar, it seemed a fine idea to head there after leaving St. Andrew's.
Today I got one book, the magazines, and two mugs. In previous weeks the coasters, tray, dish, cloche and sweater came home with me.
I like this little tray from the Salvation Army. The pattern seems vaguely Swedish to me, and the bright colors impossible to resist.
This April Cornell dish is very appealing with its leaf design and curved shape.
This j.jill cardigan has a kind of petal effect round the neck and pockets and looks never worn.
The coaster set has bright colors and a bird design on each one--Sold!
Look for this little seahorse to make an appearance this summer when the theme is shells and beachy.
Last, but not least, this is the best recent score of all. It is a glass cloche with bird knob on a ceramic stand by Martha Stewart. It was new in box for $7.57. Looked up online it was being sold for $43.99 to $49.99, so I'm delighted, even though $7+ is pricey for me. 

Has the weather been interfering with your hunt for treasures since the first of the year too? We need to get some dry days without frigid temps to keep our thrift skills honed!

Have a great day,

All great finds, although that seahorse creeps me out a bit. I think it's his eye. . . . But that cloche! It's adorable, and I can't wait to see how you style it first! The tray is wonderful too -- I really like the design.
