This Week's Thrifty Goodies - Part 1

Lots of goodies to share with you this week, I've been taking pictures like crazy of the neat stuff I found! First there is a wonderful pink vintage lamp in the shape of an Oriental woman - I doubt this is the original shade, but it came with it and it works OK for now - the lamp and shade were only $2 at a yard sale.

Next there is a little lusterware incense burner, it is so sweet, and was only 25 cents.
This must have been my day for Oriental type items, I found a darling planter of a man and a rickshaw for 50 cents, it is in perfect condition too!
I always love to find things for my ever-growing Chicken and Rooster collection, and here we have a set of 4 Japanese (little paper tags still on them) mugs with chickens and chicks on them - too cute! $1.00 for the set at a yard sale.

And my hubby found some vintage men's ties - he does not wear them, but thought I might be able to make something from them. I already have a huge box of vintage men's ties and....someday......will get around to doing something with them :)

Love the stuff you found!! I love looking at photos of what others bought! I guess it's like looking in the shopping cart of the person behind you in line at the grocery store... :0)

I guess if I had to pick a favorite of all, it would be the incense burner, it's just too cute! You enquired about if we got a lot of hummingbirds...yes we do, we have a feeder in the front window and also one out back on the deck. We have a butterfly bush, and lots of flowers that attract them, so it's like a hummingbird airport here. The first year there were only a few, now you can sit outside and see a few in just a couple mins.
