Thrifting & Manne-Bust!

Just popping in to say a quick "hi" and to share...

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day so
hubby and I decided to go for a drive, get
lunch out, and of course stop at a few 
thrift & consignment shops.

Look what I found front & center at one of them!
 A mannequin bust.  Yikes!  I thought
she was great, in a "kitsch" kind of way,
and she looks very retro to me.

Well...she wasn't for sale.  Dang!  
& I had the perfect necklace & earring 
set for her to wear.  😏

What an interesting "conversation piece"
she would have been!  & I would have
decked her out for all the holidays.  
How about it...have you ever considered
or made a quirky purchase you've had fun with?

In a completely different style...I couldn't
resist bringing home these hand painted
china plates.  

Nor these art books to help me with my
painting hobby...hopefully.  

Sharing a "Pam Picasso" (as I like to call 
them when I copy a Picasso) that is hanging
in my bathroom.  Ha, ha...which is not an insult 
to my painting. I like to hang them everywhere.  

Are you still hitting the thrifts?  Would love
to hear about your adventures!   Enjoy the rest 
of the weekend and have a terrific week!

Longing for Spring & Thrift Finds!

It's not even mid February and I am longing for spring.
How about you?  Not that we've had a horrible winter, 
I just need warmer and sunnier days.  

I don't thrift as much as I used to because I am trying
to clear out a whole room of "treasures", but hubby and I
 hit a couple places last week end.  Always fun to share,
and a few of these things will end up on Etsy.  

Very old pottery calico cat & dog shakers.  Unsigned.

Bust style statue of the Virgin Mary.  
Marked Japan

Russel Wright cream pitcher, Iroquois "Ice Blue"
I have some blue plates and a casserole dish in the same pattern.

Doilies, always a sweet find, especially when they
 have purple edges.  

And hubby's find for a thrift he passes on the way home
from work.  At first I thought it maybe was a Scandinavian
design, but once I was closer I could see the design was 
embroidered.  Lovely work.  Probably not very vintage,
but I love it.  So any ideas on this?  

Because of the design I'm thinking it is foreign.  Very nicely made.
Oh...there was a matching runner and he got me that too.

"Always hang on to men who thrift."

 Wonder who we attribute that great quote to?

That would be me!  😁

Closing with a photo of a very old
Beistle Valentine centerpiece.

Very imperfect, yet still adorable!  

Enjoy a great week-end!
