BLOG PARTY ~ TODAY'S THRIFTY TREASURES AND BLUE MONDAY


Welcome to my Something Old, Something New, Everything is Blue and a Freebie Too!

Since my party favors are both blue and fabulous thrifty finds, I'm participating in both Blue Monday hosted by the fabulous SmilinSally and Today's Thrifty Treasures every Monday, hosted by the fabulous Rhoda at Southern Hospitality!

New to blog parties? Comes see what all the excitement is about! I've included a link at the bottom of this post that will take you to each of the hosts' post. There you will find a list of all the participants! Give it a go, you'll love all the wonder posts that each participant contributed! You get loads of idea and do a lot of ohhh and awww; and see some creative and fabulous blogs!

Without further ado....Something Old, Something New, Everything Blue and a Freebie too!

First, Something Old....my blue and white kitty cats! I got the large one about 15 years ago at an antique mall in Maryland, for $8.00. My daughter spotted the little kitten while we were shopping in a vintage shop, it was $3.00.

and I found this little doggie the same time I found 2 of my three Wise Monkees, it was $4.99.

Something New....I stopped in my local thrift store and found this pretty blue glass footed bowl, it was $2.99.

Finally, my fabulous freebie! My sister gave me this fabulous blue and white Matryoshka Nesting Doll. There are 15 and the largest is 18" down to 1".

As you see, I didn't take them all out. They sit on top of my armoire.

Last week I posted three different China Hutches I saw on craigslist. If you want to see which one I got just scroll down to my Saturday post, right below this one.

That is all my blog party favors for today! Thanks so much for visiting me! I hope I made it worth your while! I'm off to see the other lovely blog party favors!

Be sure to stop by Today's Thrifty Treasures and say hello to Rhoda and view other fabulous finds and visit SmilinSally's Blue Monday for lots of pretty blues and all the lovely blue contributors blogs!

Enjoy!

Oooooooh Tina! I think I NEED your blue & white kittys and pup to go with the blue & white stuff I posted for Rhoda's and Sally's parties. ;)

I think those are about the prettiest nesting dolls I have ever seen.

Hi Tina, You have some unique treasures here. I really like your sister's gift of the blue nesting dolls- I've never seen them in blue before. Your armoire looks like a Broyhill piece, is it? Thanks for stopping by for a visit. :-) Sue

Those blue and white pieces are worth so much more than what you paid. How do I know? I used to buy one piece for my daughter-in-law every birthday and Christmas for a couple of years. I know what I paid! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

Keetha Broyles said...

I can't EVEN decide which are my favorites - - - the blue kitties & dog or the nesting dolls. They are ALL just fabulous.

The dog makes me want to go take a nap - - -

Oh, but I'm blogging, nap will have to wait.

Becky K. said...

Oh. so many pretties! I love them all but the kitty at the top of your post takes the cake!

Happy Monday!

Hello Tina. Thanks for stopping in to say hello at my first Blue Monday offering. It sure won't be my last. I love your little blue and white figures. There are treasures everywhere.

Thank you for stopping by my blue post. It lead me to your wonderful blog. Loved the pictures of your home. I also liked the thrift store finds.

As an auctioneers daughter I am definitely into antique and thrift store shopping.

icandy... said...

Hello there, Tina!!! Thanks so very much for visiting~ Yikes, I know about the typo, that's why icandy is actually on the list a second time. I tried to delete the first link (#54, I think), but was unsuccessful. Thank you so much, though. I'm not sure how to fix that... hopefully, people will click on the second link. :}

All such lovely blues, but that bowl is a steal!

Toni said...

Tina, thanks for posting on my blog yesterday about my Thrifty Treasures! I love the chairs, but I am trying to decide where to use them. Once I do, I'll figure out what color of fabric to use on them.

I love the kitties, doggie, glass bowl, and the nesting dolls. They are all so pretty! And what a beautiful china cabinet. You did such a beautiful job decorating it! Have a great week!

Kathy said...

Lovely treasures!!!! Thank you for visiting and "Following" I love this wonderful creative pink place you have here!!!! Love pink! I have been saving pieces of chipped China for years and you have inspired me to get with the program and start a mosaic on my table top....Keep up the good work, xoxo~Kathy@ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

stefanie said...

you should definitly get the hutch for fifty dollars, what a steal, i have seen those repainted white, and even black and they are beautiful.

Ivory Spring said...

Tina,

Sorry for the delay in visiting you back - I've been away. I have enjoyed visiting your blog today. Your matryoshka set is SOOOO pretty. I only have a tiny set, and the largest doll is only about 3 inches. I love how the dolls are placed above your hutch!

Mary said...

Hope you have a wonderful blue Monday!
Mary :)
