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.
