Thrifty Thursday

As you all know I love to go to thrift/antiques stores. The two of the many things I am always in search of are OWLS of course

and beautiful Pyrex (its really hard to find around where I live)

What are the things you all are always in search of I will start looking for them for you!

Also I have reach 200 followers so I think that is a reason to have a GIVEAWAY so be on the look out!

Love ya'll

Jamie said...

Love that first owl too! I always look for cute owls. I also try to keep "open eyes" for things that I love and can turn into something fabulous. Tho i have so many "works in progress" at home that I need to catch up first. ;)
Happy day to you!!!! xoxo

Aww...I love those owls! I have a soft spot in my heart for Pyrex dishes, too. Brings back lots of memories from my childhood.

I love that blue owl!! I love to find old craft kits. The other day I found a weaving loom set with all the nylon loops and everything for 50 cents! It made my day! I also love finding owls and other cute animals. It all depends on what I'm into at the moment. I see pyrex all the time but I can never see myself spending $15 on a bowl. I'm waiting until I find one at the perfect price! I know it will happen :)

Oh man, I'm such a sucker for Pyrex!! lol There's a place not far from where I live that sells them but they're just too expensive (well, for me haha)!
And congrats on 200 followers!

Wow! I think that you are the second person to post a photograph of that owl clock! I HAVE that clock!
When I bought it at the thrift shop (I think this was 5 years ago) the woman gagged and said 'Make sure to take your receipt so when you get home and see just how ugly this is you can bring it back here!"
My friends and I laughed sooo hard!
I love you interests though!

Well you know me --LOVE my owls. I always look for pyrex for you but with no luck!!

I also look for vintage cameras and Polaroids. I am always looking at the craft area too. You never know what you might find. I always buy the embroidery hoops too--you can never have too many. Jewelry is a must!!

good luck on your search!!

I think Pyrex must be hard to find period!

I do like those owls. I haven't been to the thrift store in months. I may have to stop by on Saturday when I'm out running around.
Have a great day.

Stephanie said...

You have a pretty cute blog yerself!! I also am in love with owls and dream of a pyrex filled kitchen. I am going to try to fill my new place with it. =)

Alli (One Pearl Button) said...

Love these photos - they make me want to go thrifting RIGHT NOW! I always look for vintage cameras, suitcases in good condition with no smells, and craft supplies.

Jules said...

We don't have any stores like that around my small little town. I think I would be hooked if there was.

I actually just put some orange bowls like that into a garage sale box to sell...

Meg said...

I have been cleaning out magazines and as I was flipping through one last night there was a Pier 1 advertisment with a super cute owl. I thought of you, but it was a november magazine.
