Thrifting with Cranberry Cottage

Last week I spent a wonderful day with my new friend Melissa at Cranberry Cottage. If you have visited Melissa's creative and very funny blog you know what a pro thrifter she is. Well I had the pleasure of being driven around by Miss Melissa to all her favourite thrift shops in beautiful Victoria. What a day! Boy can that girl get around she knows where everything is and my head wasn't just spinning from all the zig zag turns and roads she was taking me to but the fantastic stores! There was sooo much to see and discover that I just have to go back...but hopefully with Melissa's help! The treasure I found at one of the stores she took me to. This is a very old hand painted vase. Isn't it beautiful? I payed $2.99!!! Now that's a bargain! Thanks Melissa for a wonderful afternoon!
Now back to my packing...but look inside my box...

Hmm...should I just pack him with the china?

Have a great day everyone

I'm so glad you stopped by!
