Green & Thrifty: {Thrift Store Love}

Check out our latest thrift store finds! Liken us to kids in a candy store when it comes to thrift store shopping! On this day, we found this really cool vintage looking Double Rosette and Timbale Iron {above}, made by Nordic Ware for $1.49!
We weren't sure what it was at first, but knew we could not pass it by.
 After a little research, it all made since!

This is a look at what's inside the box.
We are looking forward to trying out some recipes using this gadget.
Does anyone have any traditional recipes to use with the Timbale Iron?!
Would love to get some and share with others!

We found these white petal dessert cups and thought of so many uses for them.
Pudding cups, ice cream cups, fruit cups, ice cream toppings cups ~ the list goes on!
                                                      All four for $2.99!


Button button who has the button?! Love finding sewing notions at the thrift store! More times than not those findings are vintage and less contemporary.{If those buttons could talk, what stories they would tell!}. These buttons even smelled old, in a good way. Reminded us of our grandmothers button cans.
 All those buttons for $2.99 when elsewhere, well, you know the going prices.

Vintage sundae glasses! Love them in general, empty full it doesn't matter! The previous owner even used them as candle holders by flipping them over and setting a candle on it! Not hard to figure out by the melted wax left behind! Great idea though. Each of the sundae glasses were .69 cents! Can you buy a scoop of ice cream for that?!

It was a good day thrift store shopping!
We hope you are inspired to get to your local thrift store and pick up some nifty thrifty finds!
 Remember, keep it Homespun!
Blessed be the Lord,
for He has shown me
His marvelous kindness in a
strong city!
