Autumn Thrifting Finds, etc.

Happy Autumn to you all!  I have continued my thrifting into Autumn.  Pictured below are a couple of finds.

This is china by Lenox in the pattern called Westwind.  Lenox began making this china pattern in the 1950's.  Silly me prayed to blessed with some Autumn dishes and behold 4 place settings of this china appeared at my nearby thrift store.  I got 4 place settings for $23.01!

Here are the delicate tea cups.  I think this 1950's teapot I was blessed to receive from my mom-in-law is a good compliment.

This is a purse I picked up at the thrift store.  When I saw it I just could not pass it up.  It was not a steal, but probably less than in a department store since it is beaded.  It appeared to have never been used.  I love it!

Not the best picture taker, but here is part of my mantle decorated for Autumn.  So many things have sweet memories.  The crystal vase, the plate and the word Hope all from dear friends.  The birds nest was found by my son Brandon.

Here is the left side of the mantle.

This is the scene on the right side of the mantle.  Love that pear shaped gourd I found at a pumpkin patch Cindy and I went to in Boulder last week.

Here is my Grandmother's antique table all decked out for Autumn.
