A Few Good Finds

So sorry for the lack of posts. My mind has been on other things. Mainly my husband coming home for R&R next month!!! Awesome that he will be home, sucky that its only for about 2 weeks. But Ill take it!
Anyhoo I found a new thrift store in town the other day. I think I might have seen it before but Im never in that area. One day we happened to be so me and the kids got our thrift on. I spent about $10 and this is what I got.

Forgive le dirt. I didnt clean them up before I took the photos doh! Anyways I found a Hakusan China cup and snackplate. So cute. I think they were made in the early 40s but not sure. Anyone know?

Two wooden tiki masks for a hangin'. One is a lil chipped and doesnt have the hook anymore but the chip adds to the charm and Im sure I can add a hook later.

6 more plates to add to the 24 pieces I found at Goodwill last year. The pattern is called Platinum Starburst and I believe these were made in 1935.

New (to me) Glasses

First off I have to say, where does the time go? I get busy and put off blogging and the next thing I know weeks have gone by. I read blogs, but didnt have the motivation to actually write anything myself even though I have had some things to say. ::sigh::
Anyways this is my 100th post! Break out the cyber streamers and noise makers!

Now that thats out of the way I can show you the new to me glasses I got a while back. I got them from the guy that I bought the lamps from. Im telling you he has a ton of stuff I want. Mostly pink pyrex and more glassware but since I have no where to display anything yet, and when I do it will be filled fast I need to restrain myself a lil.

Love em! Not the best of photos I know. Will we drink out of these? Probably not til the kids are older. Hide the glasses but use the two tiered shaded lamps you ask? Yeah my reasoning doesnt always make sense to even me. We dont really have room for more glasses in the cupboard but hopefully soon I will have my moms china cupboard and my 30s china and these sweet babies will hang out together soon. And by soon I mean hopefully in the next year or so. Your guess is as good as mine because we have to go pick it up. Im still thinking about some of the other glasses he has. If I can find the photos maybe Ill let everyone out in bloggerworld see why I keep buying from the same guy haha. XX
