I’m trying to get back in the groove with my blog. It has been difficult with my Sweetie Pie home, recovering. I am at his beck and call and now that he is feeling better he wants to be on the go. Hello, I have things to do to keep this place going. Laundry, cooking and the other mundane things in life. I don’t need an excuse to go to Wal-Mart to look around.

I did get to do a little thrifting last week and the pickings were slim. I found some cute spring and summer clothes for Princess Green and Princess Pink. Warm weather is on the way and they require more royal garb.

This is headed for etsy or ebay.Don’t know which one yet. I have a few things to list on ebay but have been busy with other things (see paragraph one!)

This cute CeramicArts Studio flying chicken salt and pepper was found hiding on the back of the shelf at Goodwill. CeramicArts Studio had some wonderful designs and a lot of s&p sets that were fit together sets like this one. I wish the folks at Goodwill would use less tape when they tape older things together.

They covered the top of the chicken with tape and when I slowly pulled it off some of the paint came off too. It looked like it was in excellent condition until the attack of the tape. Grrrrr….

I love this little recipe holder, at least I think that is what it is.  Looks to be  Japanese from the 50’s or 60’s. If anyone knows what would have been on the round circle, help me out. I think it held a magnet, but what kind I haven’t found out yet.

Yard sales are starting now. Yeah….now to get SweetiePie to get up early and join the fun.
Happy Thrifting!! Check out the other thrifty finds on Apron Thrift Girl.


  1. It held a guitar shaped bottle opener.

  2. Oh thank you so much. I am sitting here looking at it on my dining table, the cat just knocked it over. I would guess that it would take a miracle to find a replacement opener.
