Sweet Pottery Find (and Christmas continues)

I ran into something at the thrift I didn't need but couldn't leave!  I have this self imposed policy that I can only buy things I need or will use, or have a place for (not stick it in a closet).  Boy was I wracking my brain to justify taking these home.  For me they are pure eye candy.  They were a steal!



This set of pottery canister I found to be adorably sweet!   I only found three, don't know that there were four--though we commonly expect that.  Seems anything larger than the largest one would seem to big to be practical and same goes for anything smaller than the smallest one.  I took pictures of every side of each canister as there are no two alike.



The lids are all slightly different as well.


And yes--I did find a place for them...in my pink room on my antique peasant's armoire.  When I dust, I'll turn them to see different sides!


Yesterday my neighbor dropped by with a big box of glass ornaments.  Her church was getting rid of them.  She had me go through and pick out whatever I wanted.


It was awfully sweet of her to think of me.  Here are the little treasures I got out of it, some for crafting and a few great ones to put on the tree! Pup is inspecting in the background.

Wow--all these things were unexpected and very exciting!
