Hi Everyone! If you are in the area that was hit by the arctic freeze, I hope it is starting to warm up for you. Today our temp is a whopping 3 degrees....brrrrrr, but at least it is not sub-zero, and the winds have died down. I tried to post yesterday, but my cable kept going out. After losing 2 posts, I decided to wait until today and try again. I did, however, have a productive day at home! I repainted a room in my house - yay!, and also finished a new background and header for my blog that I had been working on - I hope that you will like it.
So here are today's thrifted and Estate Sale'd goodies to share with you!
I should probably save the best for last, but I am so excited to show you this, I can't wait! Found at an Estate Sale, 6 darling little pastel made in Japan mica bird ornaments. The even have the little googly eyes...LOL...They do not even look like they have ever been used, still in their original box.
Aren't they adorable?! Too late to use them on the Christmas tree, but I can put them out for Easter, on the pastel Easter tree. I am just giddy over them!
Next up is a little donkey pulling a cart planter, and another rooster for the chicken/rooster collection.
I found these little fellas at a local thrift shop, a sweet vintage plastic chick and bunny rabbit. Now I have to remember not to pack them away too good, or I will not be able to find them for Easter. (not that I have ever actually done that)....ahem.... :)
I always make sure to check out those plastic "grab bags" I find at the thrift, because you never know what you will find. This one bag had envelopes and notepads in the front, but upon closer inspection, I found a whole bunch of old, mostly Dennison books of seals.
From another Estate Sale, I found this sweet little lovebird statue. Sorry I took the picture at a wonky angle, because you really can't see them that well. The birdie on top is gazing lovingly at the one on the bottom, it's so "tweet" :)
I found another Pixie! I did not have this one, and he is all decked out with tacky, kitschy plastic holly that I love.
A tiny stuffed pastel bunny rabbit, it is only a few inches long. It's body is pink and the little ears are pale blue. It is beyond adorable!
I also found a vintage rooster tablecloth. It is in good condition, but needs a soak in OxiClean for a few spots that I found. I did not have a rooster tablecloth, so this is a welcome addition to the collection.
At the thrift shop, I found a pottery pitcher. It does have crazing and darkening by the handle. I am going to try and get that discoloration out, hope it will work. If not, I still like it a lot.Also from the thrift shop, I found another multi-strand beaded necklace, and matching cluster earrings. The beads are plastic, and they have the cutest little blue bead caps. They remind me of tulips, don't they?
A vintage Sears Praying Angel. She is pretty large, about 12", and still in the box. The box has taken a beating though.
I found some clusters of little vintage glass flowers. These I will probably use in my crafting projects.
And last but not least, a huge vintage rhinestone pin. It is about 4 inches long, and this will be refashioned into a necklace. It is missing a few stones, but I have lots in my stash to repair it with.Well, I think that I will venture out today to go to a few thrifts. I am having thrifting withdrawls because of this horrible weather we are having! ack Hope you will enjoy my thrifted treasures, and wishing you the best in thrifty goodness!
