Thrifty Thursday

I still managed to get out thrifting while in Arkansas and here are my finds. I collect red and white enamelware coffee pots, so I nearly mowed a lady down when I saw this one. You don't see them with red lids very often. I'll use the little Ginger can in my Christmas decor.I have one fireking cup and saucer with tulips, and I found these two at different shops. I'll use them in some kind of spring vignette. I still want to find one more-maybe the pretty blue floral, or the red and pink floral that I've seen. I want to have a set of 4 mismatched cups and saucers.
The pillowcase was found at the GW. for 50 cents.
I love this book! I keep saying I don't need any more books, but I couldn't pass on this.
The illustrations are so charming and it's in excellent condition.
I'm catching up on things around here and getting lots of little things done. Hope you all have a great day!


  1. Leslie, these are darling. I hear you about the books, but there so darn cute. I just went through mine to make room for some more. This one is too cute. Love that fireking and the enamel. I have tons.

  3. I bet it was fun thrifting in another state! Love the Fire King, and the illustrations in that book look so sweet. Reminds me of the old Dick and Jane books. Glad you didn't have to cause any bodily harm to get that coffee pot!
