a little thrifting

Not much time for the op shop this past fortnight, but i did manage a quick look through the other day which produced these little finds.

A new Pyex to add to my collection, white bird and wire basket

A sweet quilted girls jacket

And I am thinking that my little birdie looks right at home here :

Happy Easter Sunday everyone


  1. You did pretty good for a quick look! The little girl's jacket is so sweet. Your little bird does look right at home.
    Happy Easter!

  2. WOW! My mother made me a quilted calico jacket with the same toggles when I was a little girl...I wonder if it traveled to you? What a sweet memory...

  3. Love the little birdie. The Pyrex is wonderful too! Very nice treasures. Thanks for sharing.

  4. yes! birdie looks happy. love the stack of books too, btw... ;)

  5. You managed to find some delightful treasures for a quick look :)
    I had a very similar quilted jacket as a child which from memory wasn't quite as gorgeous as this one.
    The basket, dish and bird are also lovely...the little bird certainly looks quite comfortable in it's new space.

  6. I don't think you can ever have enough pyrex dishes, and your very is just lovely. Sweet birdie looks happy sitting there near that stack of books. xo

  7. Gorgeous finds.
    I popped our quilted jacket just like that on my Pepper the other day and its too small. I'm so sad. All three of my girls have worn it.

  8. Love your finds, the bird looks lovely. Great colour on your pyrex too. Just found your blog and loved looking back through your posts.

  9. What great finds! I seem to remember a similar jacket too, must ask mum tomorrow, yours is gorgeous!

  10. You find the neatest things while thrift shopping. We had hoped to visit a couple Antique malls yesterday but there just wasn't enough hours in the day; perhaps next Saturday.

  11. Happy Easter to you. Sweet birdy, definitely fitting in well in his new home. The jacket is lovely too x

  12. nicely done! looks great there.
