Just tip me over and pour me out

Found this Santa Pitcher recently. My family has not warmed up to him at all. Our two dogs are not big fans either. I guess he will make a short trip to Very Vintage Antiques Mall and Gifts In Quitman Georgia. I know someone will want to take him home!!!!

You Counted Right "17"

I found these last week. They are in great shape. I actually had "Penny Candy" growing up. The original price sticker on it was 20 cents.

I watched H.R. PUFNSTUF, in retrospect I am not sure why. I wonder where Witchiepoo is????
Have a great day!

A Few of My Favorite Things

Thrifting has been rather strange these past few weeks. It is either feast or famine.

Something I have never done is buy an old year book. I got one for 75 cents because the pages were so beautiful they can be framed. The "Virginian" an all girls school for teachers had this first beautiful page.

I happened on these neat juice glasses at the same place but weeks apart.......

Then we travel to Denmark for this cream and sugar combo.... Lundtofte Stainless/Rosewood Sugar Creamer Set!! So easy on the eyes.

Who can resist and Irish Setter PINK apron??????? Not me I'll tell you!!! Not me!

Awesome bookends "Created by Earl Bernard Made in Japan."

Something I really struggle with is being all across the board with my likes!!!! Oh to be just a lover of,,,,, Let's say "Shabby Chic" or ultra modern, or simply Kitsch!!!!!! Guess it is just not gonna happen.

Your such a Dreamy Dish!

I found these two dish patterns that I have seen on blogs, but never have had the opportunity to buy . The modern one is Syracuse Carefree China Jackstraws, and the pine cone design Stetson (1946-1966). This pattern is called “Blue Pine Cone”, but the color is more the very retro color turquoise. If you click on the close up picture you can see all the colors in the pine cone. So well done!

I found just one of these. I would have loved to have found both. The set is on Ebay in a green color. I think this is so dreamy!! The hydrangea in the background don't hurt his allure either!!!

Getting Back in the Swing of Things

My Grandpa "Pawpaw" passed away on June 1st. He was 89 years young. I say young because he had worked in his garden, cut his yard, worked on his rental property and no telling what else the days right before he passed away. His heart just stopped beating. He leaves my "Mawmaw" they would have been married 69 years in December.

He and I talked often on Instant Message and I called them when I would find neat things while thrifting. I also sent them pictures of some of the cool stuff I found. I will have lonely rides in the car now, as I usually called them while I was in my car on thrifting adventures.

I was blessed to have him in my life so long. My "Mawmaw" is moving here to Georgia to live with my Mom and Dad. I will so enjoy having her right here instead of 10 hours away.

Here is my favorite part from his obituary, "Dr. Chet was a kind, compassionate and loving husband, father and friend. His family and friends will long remember him for his keen intellect, strong work ethic, dry wit, and generosity."
Dr. Chestin "Chet" Joseph Boudreaux
(March 28, 1921 - June 1, 2010)

Bmf bierseidel beer stein and other Random treasures

I am pretty sure the picture is a Ernest Walbourn Victorian lithograph.

The two dolls are from different makers. The faces are different. The clothes and details are super!

Found a cute big eyed "Eden" print and spaghetti string glasses.

The glass is concave, Love it!

Bmf bierseidel beer stein, is headed to Quitman Georgia to go in my booth at Very Vintage. It is heavy and the illustrations are detailed!!

I have discovered lots of goodies lately. I am guessing people are cleaning and organizing. I am glad they are!!!!

A Parliament of over 25 birds!!!! "who-o-o, who-o-o"

I hit a parliament yesterday at a Thrift shop. I honestly don't think I will ever see this variate of owls ever, ever again. I bought 30 of them and brought them home to the amazement of my family, WHO, don't know what to think!!!!!!
