JUNKIN FINDS FRIDAY #14

Welcome to February and Junkin Finds Friday #14


We have a new button for the JFF party
Thank you Bonnie!  I love it!  The other button has been deleted so hope all of you will grab this one! 

This week I have  couple of thrift shop finds to share with you!
I could not resist this cute cat plate for 50 cents

 Glass flower frog also 50 cents

 We all know my love for birdies and these can join the grumpy salt & pepper shakers for only 75 cents 

I love cookbooks and vintage Betty Crocker always makes me happy....the photos alone are a fun reason to buy this for $1.50, add the turquoise tupperware salad tongs for 25 cents and its a win win for sure

What have you found to share this week? 
 Please follow these easy rules
Link up your post not your blog
Include a link back here on your post so others can join in.  That's it!  
We had a great party last week with 35 entries!
I hope you will take the time to visit some of the other bloggers each week!  It is so much fun to see what treasures others have found. 
Happy Junkin,
Linda

Hi Linda! I love the new look of your blog! And such great finds, as usual! My fav...the kitty plate, of course! Happy weekend!...hugs..Debie
PS..Your header still makes me smile! :-)

De tout, de rien said...

I think they actually used my fat cat as a model for that plate, lol!

I used to have the same salad tongs, before they broke!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

You found some fun things Linda! I'd love to read through that cookbook, I'll bet it's great-enjoy:@)

Hi Linda, your finds are so cute, and so thrifty. I linked up a frugal project...I had intended on another one, but I got distracted from it...LOL!!~ Thanks for hosting.

Susan said...

Awww, Linda. The kitty plate is adorable. I love it. And the little birdies look like their sick, up to their beaks, of all the snow this winter. Of all my dozens upon dozens of cookbooks, I love Betty Crocker's the best. Don't have the one you found but I'll bet it'll be great. Good job, Linda! Susan

Glenda/MidSouth said...

That pair of birds do look grumpy - but cute. :-D
been meaning to say that I also like your new blog look. I need to give mine a makeover.
Stay warm.

Deb said...

Cute finds, Linda. Love the kitty plate, of course. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

AshTreeCottage said...

Those are all great finds! My favorite is the Betty Crocker Hostess Book with the fab mid century modern house on the cover. Oh, and love those turquoise tongs too! Thanks for a great party and for being a great hostess too. Happy Junkin'!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

Betsy said...

Fabulous finds Linda. The cookbook looks like fun and I had to laugh at your angry birds again;-)

Chatty Crone said...

You got some great finds this time Linda - I love them all - you can bring them to me - okay?

Rosie said...

Oh, you got that frog for a steal. Your birdies are so cute! I love grumpy birdies.

Diann said...

Hi Linda!
What fun finds! That cat plate is too cute! Can you believe I do not have any frogs. I never see them anywhere. Those grumpy bird S & P are totally fun! And I am loving the Hostess cookbook. I love those kinds of cookbooks!

Elaine said...

Love the cat plate. i have picked up several at the thrift store.
The birds are cute..I can't wait to hear them singing their morning songs

Sir Thrift-A-Lot said...

LOL.. the birds look so miserable!

Into Vintage said...

I think I would have picked up that cookbook just for the cover illustration - what a great find. :-)

Bounty Huntress said...

Nice finds! I bet that book is awesome. Love the flower frog..those are always priced high at the antique malls! And I would have snatched those salad tongs as well.

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Linda,
I'm so happy to join you this week...can't believe you found that glass flower frog for only 50 cents...that's awesome!!!!

Blessings,
Linda

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Very cute! It looks like Debbie's cat! :-)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

P.S. That flower frog looks like one that belonged to my grandmother who died before 1925. So I am thinking it's old.

Rose @ Confessions of a Curbshopaholic said...

I love the new look of your blog! That header picture is gorgeous, and your fonts are so unique! Nice job!
I forgot to join the party last week so I'm showing my coffee tables (both the wrecked one and the potential new one).
Thanks for hosting Linda, I love this party.

The Decorative Dreamer said...

You have some great finds. I could really use the hostess cookbook, for inspiration. I also really like the tongs and the cute cat plate but my fav is those adorable "grumpy" birds. I burst out laughing at your comment. Because I was thinking those birds are cute but they sure do look rather fussy! LOL!

Maggie said...

Hi Linda,
I love to find old cookbooks, any kind of books really!
Joining you for the first time with a pair of antique books that I found at the market yesterday.

Hi Linda...my entry today is a DoubleDuty Post and is on my PhotoBlog. I did some major Junkin' for a PhotoShoot and thought I'd share with You and the Gals here on Junkin'Finds Friday!

I'm Lovin' your Betty Crocker Cookbook! I'm still looking for Julia's!

Ms. Bake-it said...

Hello Linda!

I love all your finds! Especially the adorably grumpy birds and the Betty Crocker Hostess Cookbook! I recently brought home a haul of cookbooks I found when I was thrifting but I was remiss and neglected to take photos and show them off at one of your parties. I have a very hard time passing up old cookbooks!

BECKY said...

Linda, I love birdies,too, AND S&P shakers, AND cookbooks, especially vintage ones....hhmmm...are we sisters??!

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Love the new blog look! Great find on the cookbook for sure!! I emailed you a new party button because I accidently deleted your old one!!! I think you will like the new one better for your new blog!!

Sherry from Alabama said...

What wonderful vintage finds! My mother collects glass flower frogs like yours. She has so many of them! I was just thinking the other day I need to borrow one from her to actually use. Hope you have a warm and wonderful weekend!

Sherry @ A Happy Valentine

mrs. c said...

Once again you found the cutest stuff! I think my fav is the cookbook, I have one of the old blue cookbooks, can't remember if it is Betty Crocker but I love to read it. It uses lard and some of the recipes are amazing!

Love the whimsical cat plate. I'd like 8 of those - either dinnerplates or salad plates to mix with some of my dishes!!

thestonerabbit said...

WOW!! You scored BIG time with your thrifty finds!!! I love them all!!! The glass frog reminds me of a little display I saw in an antique mall just before Christmas. The vend had a glass frog with candy canes stuck in each hole! It was darling.....I took a photo of it for future reference, too.

Have a great weekend!!

Charlotte said...

Great finds! Nothing here in SC to report :-( I guess I'll have to hit some thrifts stores or Goodwill. Love your new fonts. I'm glad Google blogger finally gave us more choices.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Rebecca said...

Great finds! Love the Tupperware tongs!

Kathleen said...

Those birds must have eaten a bad worm! :)

~~Carol~~ said...

I love the house on that cookbook. It looks so Brady Bunch-ish! Great finds Linda, and those s&p shakers crack me up. I guess they were not early birds, and did not get the worm!

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Boy did you ever find some great ones! And the prices...you have one great thrift!! Sure miss junkin', maybe one of these days I'll be able to get out there and find some goodies.
Hapyy Sunday!
*hugs*deb

Love the turquoise salad tongs. Such a great find. You always find the most interesting things. I know those birdies will like flocking together with all the others. Hugs, Ginger

LINDA! How is it possible that I haven't been playing along with this all this time, huh???
