Peanuts Snoopy and Charlie Brown Satin Ball Ornament

I have been checking out all the thrift eye candy from people posting all their Christmas finds, and it is making me excited for the holidays!!

I have a little Christmas thrift haul to share, from a church sale I went to a while back. Nothing too earth shattering, but I think I got a couple nice items. I love all Charlie Brown items, especially the vintage stuff, so I was excited to find this satin ball ornament from the 80's.

In fact, I snagged this $2 grab bag just for that ornament, really!

I also grabbed this box of nice red glass ornaments. Can you see the price tag there? When I went to pay, they charged me fifty cents EACH for the four balls... That wasn't really what I had in mind, but I don't mind too much when it's a fundraiser.

Poor ole Charlie Brown, he looks so cute and sad at the same time.

Out of the $2 grab bag, the three items above are what I kept. I have a thing for those old wooden ornaments.

And these four went back to the thrift!

I'm linking up with the great folks at, Apron Thrift Girl, and!

Vintage Globe Coin Bank

Thanks to Julia and Chris over at A Living Space, I received this great tin globe coin bank from their giveaway!

A few months ago, I was distractedly thrift shopping while lugging the babe in arms and failed to pick up a Replogle Moon Globe. Yeah. It came with the brochure and everything. And was a measly two dollars. I actually drove back to the thrift where the cashier told me it had just walked out the door. Sob!

Now I have this little beauty to cheer me up :)

Whenever I look over a globe, I always check out my little spot on the earth. I think I have always done this since I was little!

Faded Figgjo Lotte Dishes

I really love the Norweigan Figgjo Flint ceramics, especially the beautiful handpainted Lotte pattern.

I snagged these three plates for a dollar at a garage sale but they are in faded crazed condition. I keep telling myself to stop purchasing imperfect stuff but I just can't seem to resist.

Would you have had the willpower to leave em behind? Or is there always a right price?

Le Creuset Ribbed Bottom Square Knob Lid

I have been a lazy blogger of late... There has just been so many current events to read about, new TV shows, new recipes to try, and a fast-moving baby to chase around!

But as you know, I've always got time for some Le Creuset.

I ebayed this little 1 quart beauty and I just love it. This older piece has three traits which no longer exist on modern pieces:

-square cast iron knob on the lid
-ribbed, enamelled underside of the pot
-letters rather than numbers to denote the pot size.

I love the look of the square knob!

Does anyone happen to know the age of the pot, or when these three items were phased out?
