Easter, St.Patrick's & Halloween

I covered a few occasions in that title, didn't I?  We went away on an overnight trip this past weekend, of course, that involves checking out a couple of local thrifts and also two antique markets - I didn't get anything big but what I did buy makes me really happy!!  It was a fun mini trip, the only bad thing, my iPhone fell down the stairs on Friday and it's kaput, I need a new one ASAP!!  I'm only glad I have my iPad!!!  It's really sad how dependent we are on these devices, and I'm not ashamed to say, that includes me!!


For some reason lately,  I am loving these old honeycomb decorations - I bought three at one of the markets, they were 20% off so I paid next to nothing.  One is made in Denmark, one in US and one in Japan, they all came in the original bag too.  How cute are these??





I had these little Lefton pixies picked up, put them back down and then picked them back again, I'm glad I came to my senses - they'll look cute next to the honeycomb!  They were a thrift purchase.

I have been so jealous when I read about the Halloween Beistle die cut decorations, no more  - I have one of my own!!!

  7. I do the same thing as you did with the Pixies; put them in the cart and walk around with them for a while. If I love them at the time to check out, they come home! Cute with or without the honeycomb!

  11. I love the Lefton pixies, they are going to look wonderful with your St Pat's honeycomb leprechaun. I am a thrifter too, I keep telling my husband that it is the thrill of the hunt. He has even started to go thrifting with me once and awhile. I signed up as a member today. I am looking forward to seeing more of your thrifty finds. Have a wonderful week..... Candy

  15. So sorry about your iphone, may she (or he?) rest in peace. I love the vintage honeycomb decorations too. sometimes you can find new ones at the dollar store depending on the holiday. I came across a huge grab bag at value village filled with vintage Halloween cut outs and honeycomb. Ive been looking at easter ones online, but theyre not cheap enough!:)

  17. You found some really sweet things. Too bad about your phone. All this technology brings with it so much responsibility. When we go on a trip now, I have to guard iPads, cell phones and other assorted expensive items!
