First I'll share with you my parents' Fabulous Finds followed by mine.
Here was something for my dad! My dad is a Jack-of-all-Trades. He can build a deck, floor an attic, rewire electricity through a house, and buff scratches out of a car (as was the case above). He also has an artistic side and creates beautiful village scenes during the holidays: a nativity scene that spans the back wall of the living room, a small village scene that resides on the bay window seat and a model train/village that spans the back wall of the basement. He's constantly collecting figurines, houses, trees, etc and creating papier-mache mountains, landscapes and lakes. Really, beautiful work. Normally Lemax houses sell upwards of $25. So he was delighted to find a house (even though it was brighter than his normal color palette) for $0.75. Glad my dad found something for himself!
My Fabulous Friday Finds
(I had forgotten to bring cash with me, so these ended up being gifts from my parents. They even bought me a few things that were surprises!)
Antique Torchiere Lamp: $25
Yet Another Dish Set (Set of 41): $10
As you know, I have an unusual obsession with dishes. At first glance, this set has the same colors and loosely reminds me of Lenox's Autumn china pattern. The set name is "Medici" and is manufactured by Myott Staffordshire England. We're having a Birthday Bash this September for Mr. Stranded and some friends, so I plan to use these then.
Salt Cellar: $0.10
Another surpise from my parents. How adorable is this?
Crystal Divided Serving Dish: $3
And yet ANOTHER surprise from my parents. I can always use one of these!
Glass Serving Bowl: $5
Another surprise from my parents. Am I a lucky girl or what?
