Thrifted Thursdays - This & that

Hi all! Happy Thursday. I am feeling much better today, thank you for all the well wishes. I also got the day off from work today. *does a happy dance. Not that I don't like my job - I love it - but catching up on some much needed sleep was so nice. Sweetpea and I slept in and just went on an hour long walk, she is one happy camper. I am excited the weekend is nearly here. Wahoooo

Another Thrifted Thursday here! Last week I showed off some taxidermy blowfish and told you I didn't pick them up because I already own one. Didn't believe me? Here he is...

I picked him up for 10 cents at my churches annual yard sale. He was just too cute to pass up. Unfortunately he has lost an eye over the years. I need to find him a replacement.

To add to my pyrex/bakeware collection I picked up these two gems. Ok, they aren't pyrex...but I love the cute little mushroom patterns.

My favorite thrifted items/ collection - my dachshund collection (Sweetpea included!)! I picked up the cute doxies smooching salt and pepper shakers a few weeks ago - too sweet. The dachshund holder was thrifted down at school a few years ago for my mothers birthday present. Aaaaaand my favorite thrift find (ok, so she was really adopted) EVER - Sweetpea <3. Without her I wouldn't have bothered collecting the rest. She is my little angel :]

Thrifted anything good lately? Have any fun plans for the weekend?

Have a beautiful day everyone!

  4. I love the mushroom mug! We normally head out to some estate sales on Saturdays but looking by the ones are up for this weekend we might give it a miss, they don't look very interesting sadly.

  12. Dude. That last picture of Pea near her kind/friends (lol) is the sweetest thing. I highly suggest framing it and displaying that on the walls or on your desk at work! It's love.
    Those mushroom pieces look so 70's - groovy, man. I dig them ;)
    Finally, that strangely adorable blow fish is neato. But get that buddy an eye! Poor thing. hahaha

    I'm glad you're feeling better, friend! Enjoy yourself tonight and this weekend! Mikey's cousin, who I am actually closer to than she is with him, lol, is coming over tomorrow night. We're gonna invent new drinks and she'll probably let me dress her up again. Sounds like a great evening to me! :)

  15. Oh my gah, I wonder what it takes to taxidermy a blowfish, actually scratch that I don't actually want to know the process but it certainly does look cool. Sweetpea is so adorable, I love the kissing salt and pepper shakers! Is it the weekend already?!
