My Thrifting Finds

I hadn't been thrifting much this summer but I did stop at a couple of places recently. I like roosters and hens and bought this one from a little thrift store when I was down at the cottage. Its my first one. He was a deal at $1.99 I thought. See my percy pig cookie jar looking so pleased to have another barnyard pal closeby.

While we were in California on vacation I saw some adorable ones at Ross. We don't have Ross here in Canada and there isn't one when I go across the border either. I tried to convince Marc that SOMEPLACE we had to have room for one or two of them but he was right the carry-on already had precious glassware and I had to leave them behind. I haven't seen any really nice ones around here but I'll keep looking.














I also LOVE bunnies as you may know and soup touraines (spelling?) and I quickly grabbed this bunny soup touraine. He even has a little ladle. I have some other soup touraines without ladles so I'll be able to use this one all around. I know this bunny will share. He was only $4.99.



























I put the bunny and the rooster together on my baker's rack. They sit with the two singing pie birds I bought on ebay last summer.














I also found this little ceramic tree with two dear bunnies. One is swinging the other little one. It actually does swing if you give a little gentle push. They are such sweet little love bunnies. Thats what my bunny and I call each other.....cute eh?...the bunnies I bought I mean!!

















This is the back of them.... I just couldn't leave it behind for 99 cents.


















I hope you find something special that you "really" need next time you are thrifting too....
have a great day... Judi xoxo

These are all so blasted adorable, Judy! I have a Ross and rarely go in! I must go have a look around in there! I, too love roosters.
I sure wish you had a Ross!!!
I think Bunny looks very happy to have a new friend as well!!!

Yes, my son and his family will live less than a mile away, thank God!

P.S. I sure love your soap...I feel I am becoming addicted to it! The smell of it is so devine! The pink kind. YUM!

What wonderful finds! Love the speckled rooster. Your bunny soup tourine and the swinging bunnies are adorable. You sure found some good buys! It is fun to thrift. We don't have a Ross either. There may be one in Texas and we do go that way every other week or so. I will check it out. I hope your day is a good one. Marilyn

What wonderful little things to add to you home decor and useful too. I have this exact same rooster. I collect roosters so there aren't many I don't have.

Great post!
Hugs
