Thrifty Finds

I have fallen off my thrift shopping diet, and boy it feels good! 

Here are my treasures . . .

This charming baby bird by Dept. 56, from
the Easter collection is dated 1994. 
For 49¢ how could I pass it up.

Followed the sweet bird prints,

and found this cute blue bird.

That decorates this salad plate.

Mama bird feeding her babies,
what's not to like. I liked the
muted color pallet of this tchotchkes.

Until . . .

it slipped out of my hand, and broke.

I will glue the mama bird back, but I don't have any glue.
Hmmm do they sell glue at the thrift store?  
I'm off to check!



  1. Oh no! You can get glue at the 99 cent store : ) I recently got a 3 pack of glue for 99 cents and they also have these cool elmers glue pens which are really handy, 3/99cents. All the birds are adorable but I think the first one is my favorite. Too cute!

  2. I love all the little birds! such cute finds for mid winter!!

  3. The bird plate is my favorite!

  4. What a great collection of precious little birds! Aren't thrift stores fun?


  5. Poor Mama! Love your treasures and they were such a great buy!

  6. I know that feeling, Paulette, of going off the thrift shopping diet. It is a good feeling!

    Your little birdies are nice finds. The salad plate is so cute. I'm sure that momma bird will be good as new with a little dab or two of glue.
