It seems my post on this topic has disappeared. That's the second time that happens to me. Is it me or the blog host? I've looked it up on blogger help and it seems to have happened to others. One can't get it back though. It seems such a waste after all those photos I took.
I'll try it again! So there!
Through the years I've had the opportunity to shop at many thrift stores. It happens that my favorite is only blocks from my house and I drop in there often. White lace and whiteware are especially appealing to me. Winter white, chalk white, old white, bone white, cloudy white, snow white, whatever the shade of white, it always appeals. White is considered peaceful, pure, clean, innocent and with the promise of new beginnings. I have compiled a photo diary of some of my favorite finds and would like to share them.
I had seen a beautiful lace bed cover in one of my design books and always wanted one like it. Not too long ago I found one at the charity thrift store. It was half price! All of two dollars ($2.)! I took it home. I took home the sofa throw next to it for a dollar ($1.) What a bargain!

The candlesticks were black but I had paint left over so......I took them home.
