One thing led to another…

I went to the thrift store for one reason...to buy a tin that I could use to send some carmels to a friend. I found a fun, colorful tin (69 cents) and then one thing led to another and I found a few other things (total $8).
Cute red dog dish…how perfect for my girl Lollie, two etched glass light sconces (I guess that is how you would described them…unfortunately I broke one because I was carrying too much stuff and dropped my bag full of goodies), half yard of red and white fabric and two wood weights.

So, as I mentioned the tin will be used for the carmels,

the weights will be used for some therapy I am doing on my elbow and when I am done with that they will be used as a door stop,

the sconce as a candle holder (I am just sick about breaking one…two would have been so cool),

the dog dish is obvious, and

the fabric for quilting – I love blue reds.

By the way, if your crock pot ever quits working…don’t throw out the interior pot and lid. At a recent girl’s weekend gathering my aunt used the inside pot and lid for serving nuts….it worked very well. It would be handy for serving any kind of hot food.

I love what you found and I would be sick about breaking the sconce too!
