Snap Out Of It! ME Monday

Filed under: Thrifty Finds — Laura R @ 8:18 PM

Friday I had a last minute chance to get out to a few garage sales.
Before I got out of the car she caught my eye.

There are no markings on her but to me she screams
Mary Engelbreit.

What do you think?


She cost a quarter.
I am happy.

I am linking this up to ME Monday at Cherry Chick where she also is having a give away this week.
And to Blue Monday with Smiling Sally.
For more Thrifty Treasures visit  Southern Hospitality
and more Thrift Sharing at Apron Thrift Girl.

There is a NEW Friday Flea Market party starting at
Lemoncholy’s Flight of Fancy.
Please stop by and give her some encouragement to keep it going.
Please also help build up Metallic Friday at Life Can’t Wait.

Visit Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday and read about her good fortune to hear Jimmy Buffet  after a horrible experience in her life last week.

Then visit House of Grace for Twice Owned Tuesdays.
When Bonnie isn’t enjoying vintage items she writes about family and ways to keep your family safe.

For other Garden themed posts stop over at An Oregon Cottage.
Jami offers something for every thrifty reader.

Do you have yard art?
Share it at Work of the Poet for Yard Art Thursdays.


  1. LOL…I like your spirit! You have 9 entries in the ME Monday Giveaway now. I’m not sure little blue girl is from Mary but it sure is cute and for twenty five cents that’s a deal. I’m thinking she’s a plant stand? A cute little pot of something in her tray would be darling. Thanks so much for joining us and sharing your pics. Have a wonderful week and best of luck on the giveaway.

  2. She is very cute 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments! I have already made a couple of those crochet balls, they are super easy and quick to do, and a good indoor ball because they are too soft to do any damage. In fact I am including one in my vintage baby swap package, even though it’s not vintage, I would say it’s vintage inspired. I still haven’t had any luck finding vintage toys, so I think my package will be mainly vintage books and vintage inspired handmade items.

  3. I suppose you could call her Little Girl Blue….

    Happy Blue Monday.

  4. Thanks for the link to the Friday Flea Market Party. I really appreciate it. I also see some ME in that girl that you found. I think it’s the hat and pose. I think the color is fab.

  6. Wow, I didn’t even know there was an M.E. Monday! Thank you! And that totally looks M.E. Maybe you could paint her black with red and white flowers or something.
