Stained glass Christmas bell light

I picked this lamp up at an antique mall in Florida for $1.00 That's right...$1.00! I think it will look great in my outdoor room on a cold winter night by the fire.

This little purse was made from a pair of little girl's jeans found at a thrift/gift mall in FL for $2.00. It has inspired me to search for much cuter jeans and to make my own. Will post pictures once that process starts.

This little treasure was still in the box. It's a Fitz and Floyd Candy Lane Express figurine cupcake box with a gingerbread boy handle listed on Replacements.com for $33.99. I found it in a Florida thrift store for $2.60!

I find a lot of Fitz and Floyd pieces (Christmas themes are my favorite) at thrift stores...little treasures someone didn't want...they speak to me and I give them a new home. This will be used at Christmas and at my tea parties.

Antiqua by Shafford Tea Pot

I found this teapot at a thrift store in Florida for $1.60. When I returned home I looked it up and it's listed on Replacements.com at $49.99.
