Thrifty Thursday

Well I've finally gotten around to starting my THRIFTY THURSDAY, Today is my grandma's birthday, so I think it only appropriate that I show you something that really tells what an influence she has been on me and my family.

My grandmother is a hard working, honest, loving, forgiving, Godly, cancer surviving woman! She is who has influence my love of old thing(she & my gpa own an antique store) and country items. I went to an auction this past weekend. Trix the lady who passes was one of my grandma's close friends, so of course I wanted something to remind me of that (the best items I got of true Trix character I'm holding for next Thursday. Trix was the owner of "The Calico Inn" the best little place in the world to eat. So here is my item related to the Inn.

 I couldn't resist it has LAUREL on it! I only paid $5 !!! Can you believe it?! Stands about 2 1/2 feet tall. I love it!


  1. This is AWESOME!! I have been looking for one of these. And for $5?? I need to hit up some auctions!

  2. We should go to one together! Don't plan on them all being so cheap. It can be hit and miss

  3. Awesome! Good buy!

  4. So it! I can't wait to see your thrifty Thursday posts...I love stuff like that and antiques!
