Thrifty Sunday /5

More thrifty finds to show you guys - first up three butterprint, cinderella round casserole bowls (had to google to find out that info!) and the first pieces of Pyrex to call my own - they'll definitely come in handy.

And super bonus that they're cute :) 
Just need to finds some lids for them now!

Next up a dymo tape writer, I do have a little cheap version already but after hearing Emily say how much better her upgrade was I thought it would be silly to pass up for a couple of bucks :)

Plus I was lucky and found some tape at another op shop close by :)

Continuing my tea cosey collection with this beauty above - another thanks to Emily for getting me started with that bug!  I do see tea cosey quite frequently in my thrift shop travels but my rule is that they have to be special and only a few dollars - this one was both, score :)

Thrift Finds - Siamese cat figurine
Another cat for my collection, I don't normally go for the non-shiney ceramic look but she is now one of my fav cats in my small collection, despite her small flaws :)

And lucky last a house shadow box to display some ornaments in.  I've since painted it pale pink but now looking at the photo above I'm wondering if I made the right decision or not :p

  10. Pale pink! Without seeing the after I can already predict is a good choice! :) Hope you'll share that after with ornaments (!) once you're more settled down and also hope everything is going good with the house hunting. The dynamo made me smile so much, I get sooo teased by Dani because I love those labelling machines, I think he doesn't get what I find exciting about them (quite understandable, I guess). Oh! the kitty ceramic figure has such a sweet face.

    1. I will definitely share photos of the newly painted shadow box, we have found a new place and we move in less than a week - eep, so I'm just packing up all these ornaments as we speak. Hopefully we can stay a bit longer in our new place because I'm not the biggest fan of moving! How great are Dymos, they're super fun to use and anyone who say anything else is silly :P

  11. I must admit to feeling pangs of envy with your finds. The Pyrex dishes are super and the house box too. You do have a good eye for these things!
