I used to love going to my grandma BB's house and "thrifting".  She had a whole upstairs that was a full blown time capsule.  She never threw away anything in a good and bad way.  There was a lot of junk, but there were also some major treasures.  I always made sure that I asked her if I could take something, but of course she always said yes.  I  recently went back to stay with my mom for a few days.  I had a chance to look through some boxes collecting dust in the basement.  I was looking for my old college boxes from the last time I moved out, but no such luck.  But what I did find was pretty awesome.  
There we so many lovely things.  I've been wanting the tinkerbell lamp for awhile now, but never had a way to take it home.  I drove down this year, so I loaded up on everything I could. The dishes at the top are part of a set that had a bunch of miss matched dishes.  Some could be saved, others were just to damaged.  I thought these made cute flower vases.

Another view of the lamp * a little bedside lamp in need of a shade.  The clock is a little note holder, it opens up to reveal a note pad and pencil.  * I thought the dishes were pyrex, but it turns out they are "made in France" that was all the info I could find on them.

Here are the dishes, see what I mean, they are all over the place.  I'm going to sell them as a lot in my etsy store, but everything else is staying with me.
