Thrifty Thursday

Pin It
It's Thursday!

Thrifting was fun this week.  First up ....

A pair of tongs.  Made of pewter.  I just love that they look like chicken legs!  Cost 50 cents.

Then I found this little ceramic, chicken container.  Perfect for holding little doodads.  Cost 50 cents. 

Happy thrifting and remember to give your loved ones a hug!


  1. Good Afternoon Debbie, You are very good at "rooting out" bargains. The pewter tongs are perfect for getting ice from an ice bucket and I love your "doodads" ceramic container. I also love the word "doodads", I've never heard it before. In England we say "bits and bobs". We are teaching each other new words! Have a lovely day. Best Wishes Daphne

  2. Thanks Daphne and how funny as I never heard of 'bits and bobs'! We are teaching each other new words. Isn't that just wonderful? Have a great day!

  3. I dearly love cooking in my crock pot. It has saved me many a busy night. A little prep work and you have something delicious and so wonderful!! I am definitely adding this to my must try recipes!! Thank you for sharing!
    Hi there, found you through a blog hop, glad I did! I look forward to reading your posts and am now following you! Come on by the Aloha Friday Blog hop and link up with us too!! It's easy and you could end up being next week's featured blogger!!

    1. Thanks Jean. I stopped on by and joined up. Thanks for the invite.

  4. Hi Deb, Those adorbable tongs actually came from a "pickle castor" back in the victorian era. The castor usually was an opalescent glass color, either pink blue, amber or clear, and it had some sort of carrier to accompany it. Most of the castors that are found at flea markets are missing the tongs, guess you got a great start on a new find! Are they marked with any "numbers" inside, that usually will be the tell tale if they are sterling or not. Sterling silver always was marked.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading all of them. Have a wonderful day.
