Do you love vintage and thrifty finds? Do you love to share? Do you like a good party? Well then you are in the right place today so come and join us and enjoy the adventures of Junkin Joe!
Hmmm…and interesting haul this week but just like we discussed…the prices are soaring and this is what he was able to find within his $5 budget. Personally I am very luke warm about everything. Although as you know dachshunds are simply one of my favorite things in life…but there is a little chip and it is an ash tray???…then there’s the bunny rabbit banks…yes…they are vintage…yes they even have the original sticker on them…yes they are a sign of Spring and wonderful for Easter Time…but they are missing their glasses and not the cutest cottontails in the world…they are smoking? Then there is a simple tea pot which I am going to do something with! But as you know we keep in real here so I am sharing what JJ brought home for his budgeted amount of $5! (deep sigh…ash tray????)
So let’s take a closer look and then check out some features and then it’s time to PARTY!
Hey…maybe the cottontails would like the ashtray? What do you think???
As you can see…little tails in tack!
Here’s the little slot and…
the change releases are in great shape!
See the little holes…that is where a pair of glasses are suppose to pop in…
this little guy is missing his too…but they are in pretty good shape and guess what? They paid for themselves because there was $3.00 of change inside!
Three little doxies…
one in need of nose job…

I will foster this trio until I find a good home for them…in the meantime I will see what magic cosmetic surgery I can do on their little noses : )
I’m a little teapot short and stout…
here is my handle…
here is my spout….
but she won’t be pouring any tea since aluminum is her metal of choice…but I think I might create something fun with her…a perfect start to a lovely home for some fresh cut blooms or even maybe…just maybe a little garden (hmmm…maybe a faux one : )
