New Thrifty finds!

Hi everyone.  I went out thrifting early this week and got some goodies!  I also did a couple of little projects.

First I found this great jar which was a beverage dispenser.  I had no lid but I like it for its shape and light blue color!  I filled it with seashells.

The picture des not show the light blue color looks more white here. 
I also found these white Pzaltzgraff dishes.  I found 12 cups, a gravy bowl, small serving platter, 6 large plates and 6 small plates all for $10.00.  Earlier I had found 4 cups and 4 saucers for $.10 each.  I love the cups because they are a great size for cereal. 

I think this pattern is called Heirloom.  Now the had those grey scratches on them.  I used some baking soda and a product called the Barkeeper's Friend and they faded some but you can still see them.  Anyone have a tip for getting these off?  I know they have a product.  I am wondering if it works!

Next I found this large plate....looks like a serving plate....Ironstone.

Look at this great old coffee pot I found at Good Will.  It has great details on it.  It has a name engraved under it and says it was made in New York.  If any of you know anything about this piece please share!

Remember the Patron bottle I found a couple weeks ago?  I had this starsfish and I just wrapped some jute string around it until it fit tightly into the bottle. 

Remember this cabinet I found a few months back?

I moved this along with my desk (1/2 table) to my bedroom now.  The cabinet was dark inside and I didn't like anything I put in it.  As I was organizing my bedroom I decided I would move this into the bedroom and hang it above the desk again and paint it white on the inside to lighten it up.  I ran out of white paint so I decided to paint it a light blue that I had.  What do you think?

Isn't it pretty! My jars and milk glass looks great I think against the blue!

I also bought a new white comforter and dust ruffle that you will get to see soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
