Nifty Thrift Picks of the Week (6.2.08)

Sharing my weekly faves from the Nifty Thrift flickr group where people post pics of their nifty thrifty finds:

large glass pear

I am really loving this large glass pear vessel. It's quite beautiful all on its own. I would imagine that it would also make a lovely fruit bowl, maybe filled with pears : ) or a really cool terrarium, something like this. The possibilities are pretty much endless, such a nice find!

Logan Utah Cup

Well, as I am not "allowed" to buy teacups of my own, I will just have to live vicariously through the wonderful teacup finds of others ; ). I don't know much about Logan, Utah, but I do know that this is a darn cute cup! The blue swallow motif is so sweet and I love the shape and sturdiness of the cup too, like a mug in the shape of a teacup. Very nice!

Speaking of darn cute! Love this vintage cookie jar. The polka dots and those adorable little kids with their rosy cheeks, so determined to get their hands on those cookies! I know how they feel, I could go for one right about now myself : )
