Thrifty Thursday

Gentle Friends... I have found a few fun things lately....

 ...l to r - an old piece of transfer ware, a nice book about Princess Alix Viktoria Helena Luise Beatrice of Hesse and by the Rhine, aka "Sunny",  who to be know in history as Alexandra Feodorovna, the last Tsarina of Russia (can you tell I love me some Russian Imperial History)... also...this super "Grinch" mug, a great old piece of Nippon ware and a stoneware cookie jar with fun ducks on it!

...  here is the back of the cookie jar and the mug... 
I love that both Max and Cindy Lou Who are also on it.....

I love the Romanov's as well. I am still waiting for the library to get the fairly recent book on the Romanov sisters. I may break down and buy it myself!! Loved your peanut post as well. My mother used to "parch" raw peanuts and they were so good on a cold winter night.
