Thrifty Thursday 4

Once again it's been a fruitful thrifting week! I picked up more milk glass (are you sick of seeing it yet?!),
this lovely little village for a dollar a piece....
and matching milk glass lamps.
One for my daughter's room, and one for the living room. It was only $5 for the pair. I needed a little cabinet to put the lamp on in the living room, and found the perfect one for $4 at the thrift store.
I wasn't in love with the decorative painting on it and planned to paint over it, but it's growing on me so we shall see.

We are about to go out for lunch, then it's back home to get the Christmas cooking done!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

cabinet so I could move it...and
