A Few Sweet Thrifty Pinks

Hi everyone!

So, how was your week? Are you starting to see signs of Spring in your neck of the woods? We had some warmer weather this week which melted a lot of the snow. That was nice but, us Michiganders are not buying the warmer weather trend. We know better. We will still get snow and freezing weather but, this was a nice little pick me up.

I recently picked up a couple of cute fun pink things while out thrifting. These first two are not normal Diann purchases but, they came home with me anyway. I think you will see why.

I just could not refuse this ceramic chicken salt/pepper/napkin holder. Someone made it and it is just too adorable. I paid $2.50 for it. I know, a high ticket item for Diann!

Another odd buy for me and high ticket item of $2.75 is this sweet little Lefton Figurine. I RARELY buy figurines. The few that I have were given to me by my Great Grandma and she had made them. I have a few birds and what nots but, that is about it. I generally decorate with things that are usable. But, this little girl just called out to me.

Now this pretty platter won’t surprise anyone that I bought it. It was .50 cents and is going to be used decoratively on the wall.

  20. Happy Pink Saturday Dian Sweetie...
    Great fins. I love the little chicken, and I think I would have splurged on her too. Love the egg salt and pepper shakers on each side. Just look at her precious little face. Does she not cluck at your very heart?

    That little girl, broken ruffles or not, is exquisite. I love her dress the way that it goes up in the front. Makes me think of Little Bo Peep. She is so sweet.

    Can't wait to see where you add the platter. I know it will be gorgeous. Have a beautiful weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  21. You found some lovely treasure, but I sure love the chicken and the eggs. That is so cute.
    Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  24. Diann, that chicken is the cutest thing! Of course you had to buy that. I love the way he holds the napkins with his tail feathers, and the eggs are such cute s/p shakers. Your little girl figure is precious, and that tray will look so pretty hanging on the wall. Yeah, you're a real big-time spender! I can't believe these bargains. Thank you for linking them to Favorite Things. laurie
