Show and Tell Monday

My show and tell this week is my little score from the Salvation Army Thrift this weekend. I got these fantastic teacups (two each of the turquoise and the blue floral in the forefront)....I REALLY had to rummage for these! lol But the hunt is always the best part of thrifting. On the way to the checkout, I passed by this ginormous rounder just full of belts. The buckle you see in the pic just POPPED out at me from amongst all the other plain ole regular buckles. I remembered Roxie's (of Candylight's by Jorabeel's) lil tray of thriftbling buckles, and SNATCHED it right up! lol It was the ONLY pretty blingy buckle in the lot. I'm keeping one of the turquoise cups for myself, since I don't have a "proper" teacup. The rest will become pincushions. I think I wanna make that buckle into a pinkalicious brooch.....we shall see!
Kindly take a moment to pop over to Make Mine Pink and check out my pink sista's show and tells too....TONS of pinkaliciousness to behold for sure!
Luvins, Andie

Morning Andie

Love your finds, the PINK buckle is cute. I am off rummaging the charity shops today, sometimes I do not know why the stuff gets thrown in the first place, still our gain. said...


I can see that you are going to be very busy making those very pretty teacup pin cushions. Love the belt buckle too.

Nice finds, Ms Andie!!! Aren't we the lucky ones when we find such treasures.....can't wait to see your creations....I know they will be lovely. The belt buckle is very rich looking! Thanks for sharing!!

Debbie said...

Hi Andie....your new teacups are so pretty. I don't blame you for keeping that aqua one for yourself either! I can never find any bling-y belt buckles, but I've been on the hunt since Roxie showed us hers.

Pink hugs,
