aww, shucks

I'm absolutely thrilled to have so many new followers!  Thank you all for your sweet comments about George.  These last two weeks have been blissful (okay, so I'm a little tired {hahaha}) and I am enjoying every minute. 

It might be a short stretch before I'm out thrifting again; in the meantime, I hope you'll dig around my archives and browse about my blog.  I'll be back soon - and again, thank y'all so much for welcoming George!

My baby boy George!  Born June 12, 9:40 p.m.  {6lbs, 9oz, 20 & 1/4 inches}

I thought that I already had this piece in this pattern but I didn’t, so I’m glad I scooped it up!  It was definitely a steal…

The Christmas finds continue…
I’m adding this to my so-far small ceramic tree collection (I posted about my other one here); I hope it one day grows large enough to fill my mantle!  This one is about eight inches tall, give or take (probably taller).
I saw a large one, decked with lights, at a Goodwill not too long ago but I left it behind because the tree didn’t properly sit in the base.  It was two pieces and I could just the tree tumbling over…over…over…and now that there’s a baby on the way, I thought the better of it. 
Why do I love these funny trees so much?!

Pyrex is never out of season!  Ever!  I was delighted beyond all delight to find this holiday-ish piece a couple of weeks ago.  It is in great condition!  I already snapped its picture (as you can see) and put it up with my snowflake pieces.  See you come the wintertime, beautiful Pyrex!
