Well lookie here! I’m just starting out with posting my thrifting finds…and I was tagged as “Thriftaholic of the Week” by Morgan from Meet Virginia. Go check it out, along with the weekly thrift linky party!
It was another good week for thrifting! And yes, I go thrifting weekly, sometimes more! How else would I be able to share all my fabulous finds? I’m actually always on the lookout for vintage Pyrex, and sometimes I really luck out!
In the way of Pyrex this week…I picked up this lovely Town & Country oval divided serving dish. I just love it! It’s in fantastic condition too, which is a bonus.
Now I use my Pyrex for cooking and mixing, I love the stuff. But I also was raised using Corning Ware as well. I’m a sucker for a beautiful set, plus the casserole dishes with lids are just so handy to have around! So of course I had to pick up these Spice ‘O Life dishes…
The top one says “Le Persil La Sauge”, which in French means parsley and sage (and no, I didn’t know that, I looked it up). And the bottom one says “La Marjolaine” which is marjoram in French. I’ve already cooked with them; there is nothing like good Corning Ware in the kitchen!
My last purchase of the week is a hoot. No, really…it’s an owl and a bank! It says “Be Wise, Save”. Too fun. I’m thinking about painting it a lovely cream color and putting it in my office. Or maybe he’ll stay his fun brown and orange, with blue eyes.
Well those were my finds for this week! What fun stuff did you come across?
The name should say it all: I’m a sucker for cute owls. Who isn’t? So as we approach Valentine’s Day, I’ve been on the lookout for owl-themed valentines. Also, being the mother of two little boys, I wanted to put something together that wasn’t all pink, red, and hearts all over…so here’s what I’ve come up with that I would be willing to give out from the boys:
Feel free to download the images; they’re formatted to be printed as 4×6 (right-click to save image). Or if you’d rather print four at a time on cardstock, you can download the PDF.
Now, if you’re into red, pink, and hearts all over (don’t forget the owls!), here are some great printables I’ve found:
Still in the mood for some more owl-style Valentines? Then head over to The Crafted Sparrow for some adorable owl (among others) printables that she found:
