Thrifty Sunday /11


I'm getting back into my thrifting of late and in the last few weeks I've picked up some cute loot, starting with a trip down nostalgia lane and a 1993 polly pocket wedding chapel that I had as a kid. It didn't come with the bride and groom but two other pollys I recognised from other sets I had as a kid :)

After a bit of research I learned that the inside chapel light should work but haven't had a chance to put new batteries in yet to test it - one day!

I also got a mix of badges for my collection, a super aussie badge, Mickey Mouse and an expo 88 badge :)

If you follow my Instagram then you've probably seen this guy - originally a fish mug but its lovely past owners drilled a hole in the bottom, becoming the perfect planter!

On a side note, this cactus might officially be the longest surviving plant I've ever owned!

No denying I'm loving all things ceramics and flowers at the moment so this purchase was a no-brainer :)

And a cute smurfs mug!

On one of my very first thrift posts,I posted a set of heart measuring spoons, well now I have heart measuring cups!!

Love these too much :p

  3. Ooh, that's wonderful! Maybe I should post a picture of my Polly Pocket(s) too. I know I still have the camper, but I also remember a green box from long ago…

    Anyway, great finds! I especially love the fish mug. It's probably best as a planter, I can't imagine it would be easy to drink from. Besides, it looks very cute this way :D

    1. It does seem slightly awkward as a drinking cup and you should definitely post your polly pocket(s)!!!

  11. that first wedding chapel just reminded me of something similar i had in korea. i can't remember exactly what it is but it definitely brought back small flashes of something i used to play with! i am definitely going to have to take a few quiet moments to think clearly and recall back to what it was! oh thanks for sparking this! :)
