#ThriftScoreThursday, brought to you by the color orange.

My orange obsession and my thrifting obsession have collided. And let me tell you, it is fabulous! But I won't be unloading all my awesome orange in just one post; instead, I'll be breaking it down over time. That way, if there's ever a dud week at the thrift stores, I'll have something to fall back on. that cheating? I hope not, because a thrifted deal is a thrifted deal, no matter when you scored it. Right?

So here lately, I've been all about orange. It just makes me happy! And when I saw this little guy for only $2.99, I HAD to have him.

He's orange, and I just love the scene painted on him! And he's an owl, which is pretty awesome, too. I have a small collection of owls - jewelry, a candle, a wax melt warmer, and now this - though I don't collect them intentionally. He is my first owl that doesn't serve a purpose other than to look pretty:

And I didn't notice until I was cleaning him up that he hails from Cozumel, a place I long to visit someday.

Thrifting has been really good to me lately. I've picked up a lot of amazing things for my home as well as some really cool vintage stuff to go in my soon-to-be-live Etsy Shoppe! Well, it'll seem soon to me, but it may still be a while for most folks. I seem to be operating on an entirely different plane of existence than everyone else, and I'm not sure why. Time just really does get away from me. Probably because I spend so much of it in thrift stores!

What amazing thrift finds have you come across recently? I'd love to read all about them!

For more #ThriftScoreThursday, be sure to head to Primitive and Proper, Black and White Obsession, For My Love Of, and The Gathered Home.

Now, for my unfortunate news...womp...womp...womp...

The Mix Tape Shuffle has gone on hiatus, so there won't be any more of those for a while. I, however, plan to keep the party going by posting random shuffles about once a month until the MTS gets back up and rolling with themes again.

And now it's off to bed for me. After a double shift, then a refreshing Oculto after work, I am ready to kick back and try to watch an episode of Scandal before passing out. Have a great Thursday!


  1. Mr.Owlie is tre unique. And a bargain to boot! I'll get back to you on those thrift finds soon as hubby stops hanging about the computer!

    1. Awesome! Thanks for stopping by, Helena! I will return the visit once I'm home for work and errands :)

  2. I wonder... I have a horse from that same location. Maybe even the same artist- similar style.

    1. Well, this one has "D. Vargas" on the bottom; I just didn't include that photo with this post. Does yours have an artist signature or manufacturer stamp of some sort? I need to see your horse!

  3. Oh he's so cute!! love it - so unique too. I love touring through our local antique stores -- we only have about 3 in this small area, so I don't have a great selection. But I still love looking!
    I get comics for my son these days.


I love comments, so be sure to leave one! Pretty please? I reply to comments on here and return visits (although I can't promise to do so in a timely manner). I can only return a visit if I can find you, so if you're linked to a Google + account, please do me a kindness and leave me a link/tell me where I can find you in your comment :)
