Thrifty Life Thursday # 30 With Posts from Last Week's Party...

One look at these little pots de creme, and I snagged them. 

Then I had second thoughts. I considered keeping them, but I don't need 4 little pots of chocolate mousse...though it sounds just yummy. Mousse is not part of the plan. 

They are not marked, but they look very similar to Fitz and Floyd ones I found online. They'll go to Etsy.

This past week was another house-sitting gig for me. Three cute little canine friends who were all very well-behaved. No computer access, though. I really need to get a laptop, I think.

So...I was amused and amazed as usual at the wonderful posts you linked to the party last week! Here are the features:

Kim at Snug Harbor Bay shared a big batch of estate sale finds with us. My personal fave was a printer drawer...I think I need one. It would be great on the living room wall when I do my industrial thang...this I think I need to shop.

Check out her other finds...vintage kitchen stuff, some of it I remember from my childhood. 

Another listing that made me start visually rearranging my living room was Penny's vintage library ladder. I NEED one. You probably do, too. Drop by Penny's Vintage Home to find out how little she paid for this beauty!

Penny, if you ever want to get rid of it, let me know...

Kris from Junk Chic Cottage shared a lovely headboard project her husband put together with her guidance and vision. They completely reworked an armoire, and used the doors to create this beauty. 

I just want to plop down right looks so cozy!

This week is one of those weeks when I had a really hard time choosing three, so you have four wonderful posts that charmed my sensibilities!

Jonni from Millie's Milestones shared a vintage bicycle project from her garden...


She is using it to publicize her blog! Clever AND charming.

      Word for the Day:
      Hebrews 10:24-25
       And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 
      25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, 
      but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
