Treasures New and Old

Filed under: Animals,Thrifty Finds — Laura R @ 7:25 PM

It has been so blast furnace hot here this week that I can not sit still long enough
(without falling asleep) to do a witty and informative post.
It has also been too hot to sleep, there has been no breeze – how do you southerners do this?

I have treasures to share but I want to show you 2 different treasures
that showed up about 2 weeks ago (with their mama.)

When there are only two in a litter kittens get fat and happy. 
Linking up to Farm Girl Friday

I will also show you a treasure I picked up quite a while ago that took me a bit to research. 
Manuela has a matching plate on her daughter’s wall here.
It is a German cup/pitcher  with a theme based on a children’s story.

Charlie and Charlotte

and some friends they meet on their walk.

Even though it has a chip on the inner lip I paid a bit more than my usual cheap self imposed price for this. (Still under $3)
The only similar one I have found online is here valued at $25.
They refer to it as part of a Jumbo Elephant set.
 I have no idea of value but have been using it on my desk to hold memory sticks.  I enjoy the graphics.


I am headed to the kitchen to stand with the refrigerator door open and drink lemonade.

  4. How we stand the heat in the south is simple….AIR CONDITIONING!! We go from our AC homes to our AC cars then to our AC stores or jobs. and in between we sweat! 🙂 Oh the baby kitties make me smile.

  6. I understand where you are coming from about the heat. Earlier in the year, we nearly washed away. Now we are in the 100’s and burning up. No rain sight.

  7. I am delighted that you introduced those sweet babies at Treasure Hunt Thursday and I love the little cup.
    I’m in Alabama and it’s blazing hot here too. I have no need to water my plants, I just stand over them and drip!!! : )

  13. I know you’re all having a horrible heat wave…ours is sure to follow because we had no spring! The little kitties are adorable, I sure hope they’re OK with your heat. Hey, you can come junkin’ with me anytime, but I must warn you….I get real competitive. My poor mom jumps out of the car before I have a chance to turn it off!! Have a great weekend, and I sure hope you get relief from the heat.
