A Few Goodies and Booth Update

Junk Bonanza in 9 days!!!!!! (those exclamation points can certainly be interpreted as jazz hands, we're that excited)  I have been day dreaming about it all month and can't seem to focus on much because of it.  Not only am I excited about the prospects of glorious stuff packed booths, I am beyond excited for a bit of adventure.  It's going to be awesome!!!
I'm still trying to take it easy on the thrifting to save my pennies so I don't have much to share. 
I found two adorable earring holders at two different places.  This elephant was a scratched up pink when I found it, and because pink just isn't my color, I spray painted it.  
This mischievous little kitty is so stinking cute!  I tend to find like items at different stores on the same day.  It's weird, but welcome.  Does this happen to anyone else?

This paint by number has a label on the back that shows it was made in 1957 for Richard.  It's cool, but horses aren't my thing so I took it to the booth.  Speaking of the booth...

Look at what is missing...the beast of a typewriter!  Someone has finally taken the typewriter home with them.  I hope the new owner loves it!  Now if I could just get that dang globe to sell...Any suggestions?

Plus I found these fabulous Franciscan mugs.  Aren't they awesome!  If I had the room, I would collect this pattern in a heartbeat.  How cool would that be?!  I currently have one nice china set that we never use, plus another at my mother-in-laws house.  So to Etsy these will go.  I hope they go to a good home...sniff sniff sniff. :(

We also had a little visitor the other morning.  I know they are pests, but they are so ridiculously cute I don't mind them.   I'm joining the parties at Apron Thrift GirlSir Thrift A LotSumo's Sweet StuffRemnantThe Thrifty Groove and A Living Space.  Have a great week everyone!


  1. Yahooooo for selling the typewriter! Love finding paint by numbers.....sold a cat this week!

    Raccoons are ridiculously adorable.

  2. I love the elephant painted white - super cute. And your booth looks great! Globes seem to sell REALLY well on Etsy, if you're patient enough to pack it for shipping. :) (PS: Totally agree on the raccoon!)

  3. We've had raccoons too (in fact there may be one in our shed now -- I heard some suspicious sounds last night...) That little elephant is so cute painted white :)
    I know what you mean about similar things founds on the same day -- my post is about that very thing!! (stopping by from the Nifty Thrifty)

  4. I've been searching for horse PBN's for my horse crazy daughter. I would much rather decorate her room with those than the horse posters. The elephant is super cute too.

  5. The Franciscan mugs are fabulous! I think raccoons are cute too.

  6. The Franciscan mugs are gorgeous. Fun finds as always :) !

  7. I saw three racoons the other morning while out for my walk...gave me such a startle.
    Can't wait to hear about Junk Bonanza. I have hit Round Top and JB is on my list too!

  8. That elephant is adorable. The paint job is perfect!

    Your booth looks fantastic!

  9. My mom had those exact dishes - a whole set - as the mugs, when I was growing up. It is still a bit strange seeing things from my childhood in thrift and antique stores.

  10. Between hearing about Laurie's Round Top trip & your Junk Bonanza, I am suffering from serious junk envy! It's a good thing I am going to Farm Chicks in June. Otherwise, you may not want to know me:-)



Thanks for stopping by! Your advice, tips and comments are sincerely appreciated!!! I need all the help I can get...
