Ittttttttt’s THRIFT SHARE Mooooonnnnnnddddaaaaayy!
It was a great thrifting week. I found some fun stuff for me and some great stuff for ebay. Hit the thrift on Saturday and then spent the day listing stuff on ebay. Mr. Right took the big kids to the truck races, some miracle of the heavens prompted the baby to go to sleep early and I sat on the couch and watched Cat On A Hot Tin Roof from beginning to end without interruption.
Can I just say here that the level of hotness that Paul Newman reaches in that movie is absolutely unparalleled to this day?
The crush I have on P.N. makes the crush I had on Shaun Cassidy seem so tame.
Liz Taylor is absolutely stunning in the movie and did you know that Burl Ives (a.k.a. Big Daddy) is not only the voice of the snowman in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, but also sings ‘Have a Holly Jolly Christmas’?
I am a plethora of old Hollywood information today.
One last gratuitous eye candy shot of Paul Newman and then we can get on with thrift share Monday.
All that and a bag of popcorn…..
Another Vintage cookie tool to go along with my pizelle maker!
Doesn’t look like it was ever used, except that it is missing 7 out of the ’12 Fancy Shapes’ that the box boasts of.
Now you know if you come to my house for Christmas parties you will be eating pizelles and spritz cookies.
Speaking of Christmas…..
This matches the plates I found last week and BONUS it was 1/2 off purple tag and this had a purple tag so I got it for $2. It is also marked Arcoroc France.
My favorite color. This was only $1.50. It has an age stain of some sort, but I don’t care. I love the cabbage leaf texture and it’s yellow, so of course it was coming home with me. I already used it for a party this past week. It was lovely piled high with meringue cookies.
Marked Carlton Ware.
I know I have told you about the sad time that I found the vintage lemon tablecloth at the thrift and for some blockheaded reason, I did not buy it and have kicked myself ever since. I wasn’t about to let that happen again. These were 39 cents and they reminded me of that tablecloth, which by the way I still search for every time I go to the thrift in case of the unlikely event that whoever purchased it has gotten tired of it and donated it back.
This was my favorite find of the day. Buttery yellow goodness for $3.
Not sure who made it as this is the only mark on it.
It now lives on top of my refrigerator. Looks quite happy there.
Hope you all have a fabulous week!
Couldn’t help myself. Sorry.
