A thrift store find!



I must admit, we have the best thrift store I've ever seen. Pewter was popular in this area at one time, and there always seems to be a candle holder or lovely plate to take home. I have had my eye open for a pot just like this one for years... and this week was my week! :)

How lucky to find that pot in pewter yet. Everyone always finds the neatest things in thrift shops. I have such a hard time finding anything in the shops around here. Maybe there are certain days when the good stuff comes in. Great find!!

I wanted to get to a few this week but never made it so someone else went home with my treasure.
