Been Shoppin'

Hello, Dear Ones! I went shoppin' at my favorite thrift store a few weeks back and wanted to share with you want I found! Look!

I found this wonderful pumpkin tureen in all of it's Falleness for $10! Isn't this the cutest thing?

As you can see, this is a girl pumpkin and I had to add a little ribbon to her stem. She was very pleased! Can you see the smile? :)

She even brought her ladle along with her and it was in one piece! That's so nice, because sometimes the tureens' little ladles are missing. So I shouted Hallelujah a few times!

I didn't want my pumpkin tureen to feel lonesome so I added a couple of little pumpkin salt and peppers! Now you know I love my salt and peppers! Can you love little pumpkin salt and peppers? You bet your pun'kin pie you can! :)

Oh, Dear Ones, look what else I found ~ another tureen for $12! Isn't this a pretty one? I popped it on top of my breakfast room hutch, but it has the underplate and ladle. I really like all the detail of the grapes on it! I'm just adoring soup tureens! Can you tell.

Then...

Then...I saw this little quartet and they were singing in perfect harmony. I just had to have them. They cost a total of $2.99! Perfect!

Look, each one has a different flower on the front and the insides are all a different sweet color. I thought they looked rather retro, don't you? Now I have four little egg cups...I thought...

I poked my tiny hand in here so you could see how big the little cup part is. This can't be an egg cup, can it?

I turned it upside down and my egg fits just perfectly! But this is just wrong. Don't you think?

So to show you, I placed an egg in the cup where it should go! The tiny egg just got lost!

Little egg, come out come out where ever you are!

So Dear Ones, what do I have here? Are these egg cups? Maybe egg cups for Ostrich eggs or something? :) Please tell me. I'm going to keep them but would love to know what I have.

I have one more thing to show you...this made me really smile!

After shopping at the thrift store I wandered into Marshalls and look what I found! The cutest little doggy bookends you'll ever see! They looked at me with those little eyes and I had to have them.


Look at these precious little doggy faces! Now they really don't make much noise - shh - their tiny mouths are almost glazed over. So that's really not a bad thing since I do have so many other dogs. If you'd like to see them you can go here.

See what these little boogers are doing? They're standing on these little balls or are those cabbages? Oh, it doesn't matter. Cute stuff is happening here. ;)

I brought in some books and these little ones began to give me the biggest doggy smiles you could ever imagine. They whispered to me that this was their job and they were very proud to hold up any books I would give them. So...

I brought these little helpful ones into the den and popped them upon my little corner table that my mother gave me. Oh these little ones were standing tall!

Here's a closer look. Don't they look content?

I didn't want my new doggies to feel left out so I gave them a tiny pumpkin full of Fallness just for them.

I think I'm just loving my new treasures. Isn't it great to go shoppin'!?

I'm joining our Dear Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville for Thifty Thursday! Pop in to see her and you'll be amazed at all the thrifty finds!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

How Much Is That Doggie In the Window
How much is that doggie in the window (arf, arf)
The one with the waggley tail

How much is that doggie in the window (arf, arf)

I do hope that doggie's for sale
I must take a trip to California

And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog he won't be lonesome

And the doggie will have a good home

How much is that doggie in the window (arf, arf)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window (arf, arf)

I do hope that doggie's for sale

I read in the papers there are robbers (roof, roof)

With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him

And scare them away with one bark

I don't want a bunny or a kitty

I don't want a parrot that talks

I don't want a bowl of little fishies

He can't take a goldfish for a walk
How much is that doggie in the window (arf, arf)

The one with the waggley tail

How much is that doggie in the window (arf, arf)

I do hope that doggie's for sale
