Would you like to do the Chicken Dance? Yea, I know I am being corney tonight.
As some of you know, I am having a rough transition going back to work full time after over 9 years. The drive is over an hour drive each way, not fun. Rates right up there with getting up at 6 am every morning. I know I am a whiner. It is not that I am not thankful.. it is just a transition. I was enjoying my coffee on the screened in porch in the morning. I was loving seeing my grandchildren whenever I wanted to during the day. I don't know about you but I don't like having a "boss" that is the age of my oldest. Oh well enough whining. Oh yea there was a point to getting on this train, I am having a bit of problem trying to fit in time to do my treasure hunting. Finally Sunday I found time at 4:00 to make a dash to the thrift store. What a quick hunt! They actually had out a mega phone to announce how many minutes before the bathroom and the fitting room was locked. Speaking of, do you try on clothes from thrift stores? I don't. Maybe it is just around here, but there is definitely an aroma of a wet diapers or depends in our thrift stores.. so NO SIR not me. I did find a great pair of jeans from Cold Water Creek one time, but I just took my chances and took them home for a good sanitized wash before trying them on. Maybe I am just a germ a fob. Whew rambling tonight...What I found today was a great pair of salt and pepper shakers. Chicken dance anyone.
Yep, I know they have plenty of flaws but I think they are THE cutest things.
He is so adorable.
Somebody loved these guys enough to patch them up several times before giving them up.
Did you see her pink cheeks? A darling.
Am I crazy to buy such a chipped item? I think they are so cute, I couldn't resist. Do you think I have just turned into a junk collector?
Here is another pair I found. I would guess they are both from the 50-60's what do you think?
Another silver try I found today also. It is by far the heaviest I have found. Remembrance by Rogers. Not perfect but it will hold towels in the bathroom. Oh, by the way be careful with that. I have one in our master bathroom that has formica counter tops in white and the bottom of the silver got wet and turned the counter tops green! It won't come off.
I want to tell you how much I enjoy having you guys stop by and visit. I look forward to seeing your creative blogs.. I have stopped buying my collection of magazines. Honestly that are not as good as looking at your blogs, and they are free!
