Nifty Thrifty Tuesday

Vintage hobnail lamp. Thrift store for $1.00!!

Teacup and saucer...thrift store for $3.00. I will probably use this to make a teacup lamp.

Habitat For Humanity Thrift Store...butter dish (with glass insert!!) for $2.00. I will paint this either white or pink and add hand painted roses. This was a bigger steal because of the glass insert dish. Very hard to find them with the dish included! Habitat threw in the butter knife for free ;)
Pink dessert glasses. Not sure if they are Depression glass or not. I just collect pink glass so I bought them. They were $4.00 each. Probably not a "steal" if not real Depression glass but I rarely come across pink glass other than online anymore. If anyone knows if these ARE in fact, Depression glasses, I'd love to hear from you. No markings and the have seams on the glasses (I read that the more flaws, chances are it IS Depression glass).

Be sure to stop by Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrift Tuesday (or click on my sidebar link) and see all the other thrifty goodies being shared!!! Thanks to our hostess Linda!
