Thrift Store Score!

On a recent trip to the local thrift, I spotted
a special piece of cut glassware.

Normally, I don't even scour the glassware shelves,
but this week I did.

A beautiful deeply faceted retro bowl
was marked just $3 and promptly found a new home.

It was an "I had to have it" moment because it
exactly matches a particular cookie platter and punch bowl with cups
that I already have that was my g-ma's and we use them all the time...

...and it was just $3.  We spend more on toilet paper.

Toilet paper or cut glass bowl? I vote for the glass piece- You can always use an old magazine for the bathroom business if need be!;>) xo Diana

Ha! I like to compare my purchases to other things as well, or what I can't get for whatever price I spend. So cute. Love seeing the pretty colors through the bowl. Finding something that matches your other items is a real score!

What a pretty bowl, Andrea. I have a serving dish that looks just like this, and it's lead crystal. I wonder if this one is too? You always find the most wonderful items. I hope you're having a good week.

What a pretty bowl. And what a great price! The pattern reminds me of the pattern on a relish dish that my parents received as a wedding gift in the 50's.
