  1. So many of these things remind me of my grandma's house. Trust me, this is a compliment. She passed away 25 years ago, but I can remember her things so clearly. She, too, had a giant fork and spoon on her wall, and that...decorative gold tree thingy? Also at her house, as was a picture very similar to the 'February' plaque.

    While thrifting, if you ever see a tiny ceramic rendering of a toilet seat that says, "If You Sprinkle When You Tinkle, Be a Sweetie and Wipe the Seatie", grab it! I will totally buy it from you. She had something like that in her bathroom, and my 5 to 8-year-old self thought it was knee-slappingly clever.

  2. Love this post! You are so clever:) I find it hysterical that so many of the items that I didn't like as a child are now things that I would love to find and hang in my house.


  3. my goodness! i recently bought a teapot like that at a yard sale- just this past weekend! it is so so charming, isn't it?!

  4. haha this made me giggle out loud! those tea and sugar containers are cute! fun blog :)

  5. Love the teapot. you know I will be looking for one now. I just stepped into my dream 70's home...great post. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

  7. Wow, you've thrifted some awesome stuff. I try not to wander into the non-clothes section at thrift stores, otherwise I keep wanting to take everything home hah.

  8. Hee he! I have the plates & bowls that match that teapot in my garage sale box!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  9. Well, I definitely just giggled my way through that...you are too funny. And also? You are ridiculously good at the thrifting. I love seeing all of your finds like that!
