Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

Thrifty Thursday

The thrifting gods have been smiling on me lately and I'm on a roll that I hope doesn't end any time soon.  LOL!

First one of my best scores ever.....my first Stone fruit $10 for all at GW.  Notice I said my first because I've heard that stone fruit is very addicting. 

Then this sewing cabinet that I'd love to get more info on.  It still has a few spools of thread in the box but I'm having a hard time dating it.  Any ideas from y'all? 

I've picked up several platters of this Currier and Ives pattern Blue from the 50's/60's and I just love it. The pieces that I've been lucky enough to pick up have all been under $3 each so this may also become a new collection but it will be one that I can use.

And even though I didn't buy any of the next items I got a chance to revisit my childhood last week while shopping with my friend Carla at the flea markets.  My younger cousin, Stephen loved Hong Kong Phooey
 Santa brought my brother Jeff this horse one year for Christmas
He also brought me and my younger cousin Donnie and Marie dolls one year

One of my favorite gifts ever was this Barbie Camper complete with the pop out tent!  Oh how I loved that camper

My best friend Donna had this game and I really loved playing it at her house

Well that's it for thrifty Thursday so hope y'all do something today that makes you smile.  As for me maybe I'll head back and play a round of Mystery Date ;) 


  1. Oh man. I had Donnie and Marie.My brother had that horse. My mom has those plates. We watched Hong Kong Phooey. We played Mystery Date at my cousins'. :D

  2. OMG! You got the deal of the decade!!! It is easily worth $150.00 or more. Yeah for you.
    Hugs :)

  3. I have no memory of childhood except for a very few moments. Ridiculous but true. I wonder what toys I liked. You scored big time girl!

  4. Hi Donna - what a gorgeous cupboard and your Pewter collection is just wonderful.
    Never have I seen stone fruit. I see people collecting it but never see it myself.
    Love the sewing cabinet but never seen one like it before.
    Oh and the dishes - we collected that exact pattern in the early 80's from the Piggly Wiggly store - you got free pieces each week with so many $$ of groceries. We had the entire set. Loved it and wished I never got rid of it.


I'd love to hear your comments good or bad so chat away!
