Thrift Share Monday: If I Had a Boat

Louisville is threatening to float away to the Gulf of Mexico via the O-hio River. We have had rain upon rain upon rain with a forecast of more rain. Nevertheless, I found some things to share this week:

Dollhouse! I bought it because 1) I have wanted one since I read the Tasha Tudor books in the '80's and 2)It was only $5. I love the wallpaper with teeny birds and butterflies. It needs a few repairs, but all the parts were included. I actually have one of these kits that my mother gave me years ago, but I confess it is still in the box and packed in the attic. I mean I have only had it for about 13 years-when was I suppose to have time to complete it??? ;)

Vintage souvenir pillow covers for the old canned ham 1956 trailer I have (and will photograph once the winter tarps are removed). Niagara Falls and Puerto Rico (there was also a Great Smokey Mtns one, but it was more than twice the price of these two).

Cute Boston terrier (I dropped my bag just as I was about to the porch. I heard the unmistaken sound of breaking ceramics...:( You will note his chipped ear (that I will soon fix), but wait until you see the (once) gorgeous pink swan planter below...Soy muy graceful.

Well, that is all for this edition of Thrift Share Monday. I am linking up with usual links full of wonderful thrifty and flea markety goodness: Apron Thrift Girl and Her Library Adventures.

I wish we could have some of your rain here...
We had a quick shower on Easter Sunday, but it was all over by lunchtime and we were still able to eat outside, anyway...I love those cushion covers and I can't wait for the tarps to come off your trailer so that I can check it out.
