Red bargains at the thrift store

Time to show some red for today.. I found these items at the local thrift store for two dollars.

I found this red votive candle holder. It has one missing as I broke one unwrapping when I came home with my bargains. will keep my eye out for a replacement.

  Do you see my rhododendron in the background?  Also there is sunshine today here in western Mi along the lake shore.. Yeah !!

 I had wanted a new coffee mug and I found this cute one and got and added bonus as there was a cream pitcher also.. to bad there was not a sugar bowl. I'm happy with it and love the ladies on it having a moment together out.

   A cafe in Paris maybe ?

  Today I will be spending time with a friend who returned from Hawaii. She has been there a year and was homesick for family and friends.

Please stop by.
