Sunshiny Thrifty Finds

10 years ago, no make that 7 years ago I would have never looked twice at anything orange, or brown for that matter.

I'm a child of the 60's and my super thrifty mom would transform my dad's sweaters in outfits for me...brown,brown and more brown!

My aunt (the one that yelled at me about the will) crocheted a spider web sweater for me in brown,orange and yellow and it haunted me for years...

So now I love orange! Don't love brown yet but I'm getting there....

So here are my latest orangey finds!

A Seashore Trolley Museum Federal Glass mug

This brings back memories of my summer in Maine as a child with my parents.


 I got this in Hudson last saturday at the street fair.

Dan and I reached for it at the same time. This is barely used and will look fab in my house.
BTW we are already filling it with iced water!
And the best part is that it was made in Montreal, sweet!

I love my beautiful orange thermos carafe! 

And last but not least....and not orange but to die for nevertheless....


No this is not the franciscans stuff, to me it's even better!

It is made in France! OOOOOHHHH LALA!
It is called 'Les √Čtoiles' (the stars) and manufactured by Les Faienceries Continentales.

It came from the Salvation Army. Beautiful!

Well that's it for now.

You really have embraced the 'orange' and I love that carafe!! But of course my favorite has to be the creamer...it really is gorgeous! Great finds! Hugs, Linda

Orange is the colour of the year, so this is highly appropriate.

I too hated orange and brown for the longest time, and still hate brown in fact. It's okay for furniture but can't wear it. I have warmed up to orange however, but not mixed with brown. It's still tacky, lol!
