Thrifty Thursday

Gentle Friends,  not much of anything going on around here.... it was very warm Monday - in the mid 80's.... then Tuesday it dropped back to the 60's with lots of wind and then yesterday it rained all day, so that was very nice.

Last Saturday we ran around and I found some fun things......

....  I found a great copy of an anime classic "Spirited Away", a little Peter Pan porcelain figurine -a favorite book from childhood and great Disney Movie so how could I pass on him, a nice older Belleek vase, a sweet little cup and saucer made in the German US Zone, and a little piece of tourist china from my favorite Chateau, Chenonceau built over the Cher river.  I've visited this chateaux a few times over the years and every time I go I become more and more taken with the house and gardens!!

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by - do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. Great finds especially the Belleek!AriadnefromGreece!

  2. Wow, you always have such good luck finding Belleek. We rarely ever see it in my neck of the woods.

  3. Enjoy seeing what interests you. Love your blog.

  4. You found some really nice things. It is so dry up here! I'm afraid of the wild fire season this year. The dirt in my garden is like dust and I have to water way too much. We have almost quit worrying about the yard but I do love my flowers. So glad you had some rain.

  5. Always interesting to see what you find each week. Have a good weekend!


  6. Wonderful finds, Edgar! I'm hoping to find a few things this weekend! Wish me luck!
