Thrifted Birdies

Is this not the cutest little egg cup? It was only about 50 cents at the thrift store. I don't know about where you live, but around here egg cups have become very hard to find in thrift stores.

I'm not really sure what this little guy's use is, other than to be cute. It is too small to be a planter, and not an egg cup. He was $1 at a yard sale.

The birdie salt and pepper shakers were a find at $1. I was at an antique mall and the dealer was apparently closing his booth. Everything was marked so "cheep" I had to bring them home :)

Another egg cup, this one has a scalloped edge on top - I love the pictures on it!

Gosh, I'm not sure which one of these to post on, so I'll choose this one. I love them ALL! You must have some wonderful stores to adventure in there! I'm finding that even our "thrift" stores are becoming pricey - like hello, are you a thrift store or an antique dealer? So frustrating!
I don't think I've ever seen an egg cup at any thrift store - plenty at antique malls though! Can you believe I have not thrifted all week? I know. How am I still breathing? I mean, really.
You have GREAT stuff!!!! I could just bring my credit card and come shopping at your house ;)
Oh thanks for your visits tooo! I'm so glad to have "met" you now!

Everything is so cute! I love egg cups, too, but don't have any nearly as interesting as these.

By the way, Lucy and I will be doing another swap probably around the end of May. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing in the birthday fun. Wow your blog amazes me. You are a serious vintage collector. I used to collect Santa's then realized I had nowhere to display them, so they just collect dust in the basement most of the time. Oh,I would be very interested in seeing what you've created in jewelry. I collect old junk jewelry and hope to start assembling it into new junk jewelry..LOL
Good luck with your move. Please make sure you move to where there are more great thrift stores. We are very limited in thriftiness in our area. That's what happens when you live in an "Antique" rural area.
I'm going to link your blog...I need to keep track of your vintage goodies...LOL Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Feathers, just the first page has me hooked. I'm gonna stick around with my cuppa and treasure your treasures!

Thanks for stopping by the pink kitchen. We do have great men in that they appreciate the color pink! :)

Cheers! LA

i started to pick up egg cups a little while back because they are the perfect size for holding beads when i do beadwork. but they are hard to find, and i recently found a martha stewart mag that had an egg cup collecting feature in it. so i blame martha! ;]
