A Winner and a Wife

I was away for a few days visiting a friend and we did a little thrift shopping.  I found a couple of really cute things.

First the most important thing, the winner of the $25 (including shipping) gift certificate from EXPRESSIVE  CREATIONS is Laura @ Top This Top That.  Congratulations.  I will forward your name to Kathy,  she will contact you. Thanks to everyone who entered and joined the party.  Be sure to visit Expressive Creations and see all of the gorgeous things Kathy has in her shop.  I know everyone will find something that is perfect for their home or decor.


Now on to my most recent treasures, another really cute and sassy Rooster.  You all know that I really NEED another rooster, but this one was so sassy and for $1, of course he came home with me.


See what I mean about Sassy.  This little buy is just full of sass.

Then this wonderful pig cutting board.  He was brand new still with the shrink wrap package on it, so I am really going to use him.  He will have super patina in no time at all.  $4.


 Then I found this really cute little urn.  I have one almost like it, and for 50cents, of course it was mine.



Next I found the most fabulous treasure of all.  I found a Wife for my Frenchy farmer.  She is just perfect and so frenchy too.


See how cute she is.


I took the cloche off so you could see better.  Isn't she just perfect.


See her little kerchief and holding the dog and the basket of carrots that she just picked.


I thought they were perfect together.  She was a super find for $2.  Their little faces just look like they belong together.


Now my little Frenchy family feels more complete.  Well that is until I find the children somewhere.


Also just a reminder that the SHABBY APPLE $50 GIVEAWAY IS STILL GOING ON.  Just click on the button on my sidebar to enter.  Winner will be announced 3/23.

 Thanks for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  5. Your French lady reminds me of my little German lady. They could be twins. We were given the husband and wife set as an engagement gift by an antique dealer over 40 years ago. So, I'm thinkin' she's pretty old.

  6. Well Marty I am the same way when it comes to roosters. I just really don't need another one but I just bought a white one but not quite as sassy as yours. And the wife looks perfect next to the farmer. You have such a good eye for pulling everything together. Have a great day and enjoy your treasures!~Ames

  15. Your little white rooster will serve you well! Since he's white he can go just about anywhere. The pig cutting board is adorable. I like things that are pretty and functional too. What a fantastic find for your farmer vignette! I guess he was lonely and you found him a companion. That was awful nice of you. They look very happy together.
