Birds in the Bathroom

Hi there, Hanna here!  Thrifting has been TERRIBLE in my neck of the woods!  Thank goodness I have some prizes from this summer and few gifts from Sister to share.  I was noticing the other day that every room in my house has something bird related, even my bathroom.  I realized that I had to find a place for all my pretty prizes and decided to copy Sister a little bit and make use of some of my glassware in the bathroom.  Here are the results.
 I found the piece of pink USA pottery at Goodwill for $2.99.  It is more Sister's color, so I think I'm gonna make a trade with her next time I'm down.
 Isn't it pretty?  And it holds my favorite lotions so well!

 Sister got me this pink pressed glass bird cup at an estate sale this summer.  It's hard to tell, but it's iridescent like carnival glass.  I'm usually not into that, but this glass is a little beauty.

 Another pressed glass bird mug.  This one was really hard to photograph.

 At the same sale that Sister got me the pink cup, she also picked up this little container.  It is perfect for cotton balls and I feel so lucky that she shared this prize with me.

My favorite find from recent is this bird planter that I picked up at Pic-a-Dilly opening weekend with Sister.  This crazy Australian guy had this little bird.  I paid $4 for it and I think disappointed Sister that I didn't barter, but I was so in love with it I couldn't resist.  He told me he was looking around for stuff to sell in his house and this little guy had sat in his kitchen window for years.  I found it online and it is McCoy and at some point had a black eye (kind of creepy.)  He isn't the cutest bird in the world, really he is actually kind or strange looking, but I love him as a q-tip holder.

Lets cross our fingers that thrifting picks up for me out here on the coast!

Linking up with Vintage Thingie Thursday over at The Coloradolady!

Until next time,



  1. Um, Sisterita? I'm pretty sure you need to give me that pink planter. I will trade you two green ones for it! I love all your repurposing. Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so don't feel bad about copying me at all!

  2. Love each of your little birdie accents! Especially the bird planter! He's darn cute. Yes, thrifting has been slow in my neck of the woods as well. Oh well, it makes finding things even more fun!

  3. I adore it! I love using things for purposes they aren't intended for. In my master bath, I have a vintage glass candy dish in crystal for a soap dish. I have a tea for one set on the counter. The teapot part holds q-tips and if you lift off the teapot the cup holds cotton balls. Then I have a vintage vase that hold combs and brushes. I just love what you have done with your things.

  4. Aw, I think it's so great that you two can have this blog together. I've never been close to my sister and we have nothing in common so my blog "sisters" mean a lot to me!

    To me, repurposing things- like your glassware is what makes a house a home! I love your little blue bird! ♥

  5. What a find for $4 and a Real McCoy at that! I'd have paid that for it, too. Enjoyed seeing your Summer Thrift Shopping Pics. How fun to share the Thriftin' with your Sista! Happy VTT.

  6. Everyone has their own taste. I think your bird without an eye is cute. I have a lot of various bird figurines all over my house.
