This is a hard time of year for me as a junker.  It's still a little too early for estate sales and the flea market has been really blah because of the aforementioned lack of sales.  There just isn't a lot of good junk to go around right now.  I am chomping at the bit for a good haul!  So until the sun comes out and the weather warms up and people get motivated to sell grandma's good stuff, I am forced to work a little harder to find the things I covet.  Challenge accepted!!

I found the pink Miss Cutie Pie tea pot from Goodwill!  It's in perfect condition.  This is the third piece of Miss Cutie Pie I have thrifted.  I'd love to find a yellow piece.  The blue cream and sugar set came from an online trade for a pink Pyrex 401.  I'd say that's a good trade!  The creamer is a duplicate for me but I figure it's a good idea to have backups in this stuff.  It's getting pretty hard to find!

Do you guys remember Hanna?  You know, the other half of Pyrex Thrifter Sisters?  Well even though she is SUPER busy with my crazy, nearly 11 month old niece, she still finds time to find me the best Christmas gifts ever.  She started the Hazel Atlas musical pig and pink elephant collections for me so I always look forward to see what she is going to add to them.

A while back, I bought these two old drawers from the flea market.  I lined them with some Farm Chicks found vintage wallpaper and turned them into my new tiny pottery shelf.  Pretty cute, huh?

I found both pairs of these bluebird shakers from the same seller who gave me what he called a "bulk deal".  Discounts always work for me!

I think it may be time to find another shelf...

Found these awesome flamingo glasses from my favorite out of town antique mall.

And I'll leave you with an updated look to my tablecloth collection.  I think it may be time to either A) purge some or B) find a new shelf.  Which one do you think I'll choose?

Hope everybody is finding some good junk!

Until next time...
