Thrifted Thursdays - Ceramic Menagerie

Another Thrfited Thursdays here. This week I wanted to show off some of my cute ceramic animal pieces I have collected over the past few years. I keep these guys rolling in but soon I won't have space.

Cat bank - This cute guy keeps watch over my loose change. I am in love with his little bow tie. His green skin is a bit weird but also a part of his charm. This guy was one of my first thrifted treasures.

Lion plant holder - This guys goofy face sold me on him. I picked him up on a half off day at a local thrift store - thrift & dollar. I haven't grown a plant in him yet. As of right now he hangs out on a shelf looking calm, cool, and collected. This spring I hope to give him a fern to look after.

Toad soap/toothbrush holder - I wish I had a larger sink to use this guy properly. As of right now he holds arts and crafts supplies. I picked this guy up two years ago. 60 cents!

Elephant plant holder - This guy still hasn't held a plant either. He just hangs out by the back door and sometimes holds my acrylic paints. I picked this guy up Sophomore year of college as one of my first thrifted finds.

Cat small plant holder or card holder? - Not entirely sure what these three cats are supposed to hold but they typically contain yarn or pens. I was gifted these lovely felines plus the dog at a white elephant party. They were acquired at a thrift store however.

Dog - He just looks cute and came with the cats.

Eeep! Where do you all upload your pictures to? My Flickr account is nearly full and I am debating whether or not I want to pay to upgrade or look elsewhere. Any great free sites? I have a photobucket but I like Flickr's quality.

    1. Haha I had put them down and I noticed that too so I had to snap a shot.

      And thank you! I may revert to using photobucket. I just love that flickr allows you to upload such high quality/sized pics.

    1. Thanks Arielle! I wish I had more people in the area to thrift with. Typically my mom and I just go on weekends I am home. It would be so fun to have a group of thrifters.

  8. Oh I love the green kitty with the bowtie!!!!!! He's my fave! I thought it was a puppy at first, lol. Either way, that's the cutest green animal I've ever seen in my life.
    I also love the cute expression on the lion.
    I swear we used to have that trio of cats ceramic when I was a kid. I think every household had it! :)
    And as far as where I store all my pictures, I use Flickr too, but I forget about that account and rarely use it; I have photobucket but don't use that often either...I just keep all my photos on my external hard drive. You should get one if you don't have one. I love it because I just save all my pictures every month onto it and don't worry about ever losing them if my comp crashes. Eek I'd die if that happened!

    1. Haha, now that you point out the puppy thing I can see him both ways. And the three cats are just too cute. I was so excited when I opened them at the white elephant. I am sure they were massed produced. Orrr maybe they are your old ones haha.

      I just bought an external hard drive a few months ago. I have had my hard drive crash twice and lost mostly everything in the process :[ I back up a few times a week now thankfully. Thanks for the heads up though. It is bad news to lose pics (and everything else).

  10. Things like this are always the best. It's always fun to find these things at thrift stores. I have a few knick knacks myself that I enjoy. :) And, a few posts down, you have an awesome dress! That thing kicks butt!! It also reminds me that I need to buy some brown tights at some point...

  14. oh CUTE! everything is so cute! upgrading you flickr account is actually, in my opinion, totally worth it if you take and store a lot of photos. I've totally used my money's worth and more.
