Thrifty Treasures & Met Monday .. Tomatoes & Apostle Glasses

Hey Y’all .. Welcome to a double Monday post .. Thrifty Treasures & Met Monday.  Thank you to our wonderful Hostesses  Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality  & Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch..  Be sure to drop by and visit them both and see what all they and others are sharing today. Buttons & Links are located at the bottom of this post.

Today I’m sharing a few things I found over the last month ..

First up .. These Wooden Candle Holders. I found these at Goodwill : $2.00 for the set of 3. I brought them home and gave them a fresh coat of white paint.

Also found this iron candle holder .. Goodwill .. 1/2 price for .80.

Gave it a fresh coat of white spray paint.. I have a cute hummingbird feeder that I’ll put in the center of it for next spring.

I belong to a co’op and we all got a case of tomatoes earlier in the month.. They were all a little pink so I laid them out for a few days to ripen up..

Then morphed them into 8 quarts of canned tomatoes! I ended up loosing 1 jar.. not sure what happened.. they all sealed really well .. but a couple of days later that one seal popped.

My next find .. Apostle Glasses.

I absolutely love these.. I found these at Goodwill and they only had 10 .. so I’m on the hunt for the others. 100_7301

These are going to be perfect for my Christmas table I’ll be doing at the church this year. I paid $1.51 for each. The photo below shows the difference once I got them home and gave them a good bath. The one on the right is the before.. the left one is after. They cleaned up great!

I tried filling them so you all could get a better look at the etching .. but all I had was yellow powerade lol.. and the etching got lost against the yellow.100_7315

Thank you all for taking the time to share in my newest treasures this week.. I look forward to seeing what all everyone else has found.

I so love it when you visit. Country hugs sweetie, Sherry

  7. As always, I love your post, but I'm here for a very selfish reason...I need the recipe you posted awhile back for the cake bits pictured on the side of your blog. I can't remember what all you put in them, can you help? I want to make them for next weekend when the Gkids all come home. Thanks for your help, and have a great week!

  8. Hi Debbie, What a great job with that white spray paint!! I really like those Apostle glasses. Did you say which you are missing? I wonder if they have Matthias instead of Judas? Have a good week!

  9. I love the glasses and have never heard of anything like them! Who's missing? They will be great for Easter too. I don't think it will be cost effective for me to fly to Atlanta to thrift shop, but the bargains and merchandise sure seems to better there than it is here! Enjoyed my visit!

  19. Debbie, I'd come visit you but I'm afraid you'd paint me! You make everything look beautiful with that paint of yours and if you got a gander at me, you'd know I need one.

    As usual, you are an inspiration with your talented touches. I sure hope you find your lost Apostles. I have never seen anything like these glasses. Do you have any idea where they came from?
