A Favorite and a Lucy Welcome......

Rhoda from Southern Hospitality is hosting a party and she wants to know what is your favorite yardsale or thrift store find. I have had several, but my latest is this little iron bird and bird nest. Since I have again begun "feathering my nest" I have been looking for birds, nests, eggs and all related things and I was thrilled last weekend with this find....it was $2.00.

Now when I brought it home and put it on the sofa table, Lucy just had to give her a warm "doggy" welcome by.........sniffing her butt......lol
Welcome little birdie......welcome to our family!!

Please feel free to scroll down because the last several posts have been about my thrift store, yard sale finds from the last couple of weekends. Hope you have fun at the party!!

What a sweet little find. I just love birds. I doves who always nested and raised their little babies on my porch fan. I would go without cool air outside in the Texas heat just to keep them safe. I have since moved, but birdies hold a speacial place in my heart.

Marie said...

That's a great yard sale find. And only $2??? WOW! Your dog is too funny. lol

Christina said...

The bird's nest is just wonderful. What a great find. I love the big white bowl too.

Your little table turned out so cute.

Thanks for visiting our blog today. We are so glad you came by. I'm just about to get out my spray paint to work on something that came out of my neighbor's trash. (blush)

Chelsea looks just like our beloved toy poodle Devlin, who passed away four years ago. Same expression and everything! Also, I used to have that same bird's nest on a stand. I don't remember what I did with it, though!

I am joining the party late...just got my post up, but love your nesting finds. Isn't it funny, I never used to look for things like that, and now they stick out because I want to give them to the Nester.:)(or you...)

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Hilllllarrrrious that your dog is sniffing the bird's butt! My dog "fancies" the wrought iron pig on our neighbor's side walkway and often does the same. I think she wants to date him. :-)

I'm loving your thrifty finds!
