thrifted: the trivet and the mug

teapot trivet

I thought I'd share a couple of cute tea-related thrift finds I scored recently.
It was instant love when I saw the teapot shaped trivet above.
Not only was it a teapot shape, but the ceramic tile was full of mid century delight!
The clock, lamp, wall art, salt & pepper shakers, teacup & saucer, floral display, a pitcher, wallpaper & even a hidden plaque saying - I believe - "happy day". Also? Did you see the little owl? swoon!
It's almost too much for a girl like me to handle.
I hung this trivet on the wall above my stove & use it for tea and coffee making.
It makes my day that much shinier.
It cost a whopping .50 cents.

pretty kitty Cat Mug

The above mug was a purrfect addition to my vintage mug collection!
I think I giggled when I found it; just a little.
I continue to smile whenever I use it (which is often).
It even came with a lid!
The fact the tail curls up around the handle makes it extra special, don't you think?
This pretty kitty was .25 cents.

Such happiness to be found in .75 cents worth!
with thrifting joy,


  1. Nice finds - lucky you. I was too busy to go on a little op shopping yesterday :-(

  2. that kitty mug is definitely giggle worthy! I think the butterflies really push it over the top :)

    That'd be a cool job, wouldn't work for a mug company and say "what the world really needs is a mug with..."
