Yellow Thrifting Treasures

  I went thrifting last week and founds some pretty treasure with yellow on them.
 My favorite is the bunny topped dish. Sometimes it amazes me how I just find things at the time of year when they are most appropriate and needed.. I can just see Tommy's greek chicken salad in it. Its nice and heavy, so if I chill it in advance it'll keep everything nice and crisp, especially the marinated cucumbers. Makes my mouth water just to think about it.. I could'nt resist the cream and sugar set for only 50 cents.If nobodies looking I might use the cream pitcher for dressing and the sugar bowl for croutons,, but shhhhhhh dont tell , OK...
 I made my own bunny plate since I didnt have one.. My neighbor let me use her printer. I cant eat off of it but it sure is PURDY, as we say in the south...
I'm participating in Mellow Yellow Monday. You'll find the Tag on my sidebar. Just click it to go and see all the other folks who joined in this weeks posts...
Is that one wild eyed bunny , or what... hahahahaha
played with the photos in my art program.. this looks so romantic.. Bunnies and Romance, do they go together? umm maybe :-)
Thought I might try a mosaic too..
Thanks so much for visiting me and coming to see my new treasures..
Happy Spring and please say a prayer for all of our fellow bloggers who are sick. We may only be in the internet but we're FAMILY..


  1. I love thrift store shopping... and your finds are so perfect for spring!
    Thanks for dropping into DesignTies. Your comments on my home-staging job are so very apprecaited!

  2. Hi Sonny,
    Love your bunny dish you found, it is so cute!
    and to find it this time of year was a real blessing. He is a wide eyed bunny, so alert looking and so cute. Loved the idea of putting the croutons in the sugar bowl, I have put the dressing in the creamer before, but never thought of putting the croutons in the sugar bowl, very clever idea.
    Love your collage as well. Hubby and I did our
    first one last friday night. We had such fun
    doing it. Also like the bunny plate you made,
    adorable. Aren't those print shop programs terrific. I sure love mine.
    You have a great day tomorrow.
    Blessings, Nellie

  16. Hello there dear lady,

    You know I owe you an apology dear Sonny.~ I was amidst posting a lovely comment to you after the Tuesday Tea Parties last week and my computer froze; so much so in fact that the message came up on the screen that apparently the Microsoft server was down. It remained so all night; I had meant to remember to get back first thing in the morning!~ It was a busy week; so sorry my memory is like a 'sieve' these days my dear!..,

    I love this post and I also adore your new look and blog banner!~ Wow; so sweet!~

    Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

    P.S.~I absolutely loved that dear whimsical post from your Tuesday tea by the way!.., Aah me.., You see, 'my memory'!..,

  17. Hi, you did some great thrifting!! I love the bunny....Kathy

  18. Sonny-love the bunny plate! Does the phrase "wild as march hare" ring a bell? I think this is the hare they were talking about--wonder what is going through his mind ? :) Very smart to make the plate and I love your idea of salad dressing and croutons for the sugar bowl and creamer! Thanks for stopping by!

  19. Oh how springy all of your great treasure are. I just love that sugar and creamer and your bunny dishes are so cute.
