Just Us Spring Chickens (and ducks)!

More Decorating, More Treasures

“Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral.”   – Frank Lloyd Wright

I have a lot of fun Easter decorations, but this year got away from me, so I just put out a few spring things.  These little cuties are my favorite.  I love their simple monochromatic style and soft, vintage colors. I usually pick them up at thrift stores for under a dollar, and I keep an eye out for them whenever I am poking around the shops.

More Decorating, More Treasures

Sometimes I find some wonderful treasures at the thrift store to make it an extra merry Christmas.  I thought I would share a few of my recent finds.

Gettin’ My Green On!

“If I keep a green bough in my heart, then the singing bird will come.”       –Chinese Proverb

Today I’m sharing a little gallery of some green treasures in my stash – in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, of course.  It’s right around the corner, and I’m sure everyone is thinking green!

marchThis sweet little vintage planter says “Relpo” on the bottom and I don’t often see St. Patrick’s Day vintage items, so this is a favorite second-hand find.

march2This miniature chair came with a red couch at my favorite consignment shop!  they make quite a pair!  My chair fetish is legendary, but this one fit in my car and doesn’t need re-upholstered.  Bonus!

march3I found this vintage strand of beads at the thrift store that are chunky, funky and definitely in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day!

I hope you’re ready to get your green on!  Erin go Bragh!

Love my Haeger

“Love is all you need.”  –John Lennon

It was pure bliss to spend a little time yesterday at the thrifty shops….  My best find was this lovely, vintage Haeger flower vase.  Every once in awhile the pottery gods are looking down upon me.  I also can’t pass up cool old dictionaries, and I know that makes me sound like a crazy librarian, but hey.  The letter dice and the cute little sand-timer came from an old game called Scribbage that I picked up for a song.  Finally, this adorable little coffee mug was begging to come home with me for Valentine’s Day.  Another day of good finds, great deals, and a little harmless retail therapy!

vdayHappy Valentine’s Day and as always, Happy Thrifting!
