A VINTAGE THRIFTY THING

It is so good to be home! I am still on Cali time but I think by this weekend will be OK!
I am taking a break from my trip photos to join in a couple of my favorite parties and share some junk!
 
I found this great planter at a thrift store back in the beginning of the summer.  It's been waiting to make it's appearance! 
It's old and has lost lots of paint but it still has so much charm
Are they parakeets?  Love birds??
Do you know? For 50 cents I decided they were a bargain!


**Thanks to a couple of blogging friends I have found out these were made my Morton and are called Love Birds**
I'm joining Suzanne at Vintage Thingy Thursday
and

Please go by and visit these fun parties!

Cheers,
Linda

They definitely were worth the price. I agree with you. Makes you feel more in a happy, loving mood.

Hi Linda,
It's not junk...it's a collectible! I love the little planter, and the missing paint just gives it that well-loved look that show it's age...quite a bargain for 50 cents!
Hugs,
Cheryl

There is a similar piece here in a Vinnies - marked much higher than 50 cents. I keep looking, and touching, but so far they sit on the store shelf.
