In some religious it is common to have Biblical items used in decoration in the house. You often see Noah’s Arks, nativity sets and the odd Mary. Rarely have I seen Adam and Eve. And what an Adam and Eve.
Yes, the black bar was necessary. She has pearl earrings on and he has a club behind his back.
When I say its hard to shock me while thrifting, I didn’t mean it as a challenge. I was in the aisle behind chatting with someone for a bit and every single person stopped for a second to look at these.
Everybody is all “I’m engaged” or “I did a race” and I’m over here all “Look at my new weird pig!”
He is very happy for everyone. See his party hat?
He was with a dog friend in the same style but he didn’t come home with me because look:
He kinda freaked me out.
Teddy bears, frogs, pigs, children, old people, jelly beans. There are nicknacks for everything. Including apparently a woman in an apron aiming a gun.
I love purses. Really do. And novelty ones are great. This one is a bit disturbing.
This picture was taken by my friend Paula in Florida. She was thrift shopping for a weird hand thing on facebook (best not to ask) At one store she found this grandma doll.
Wouldn’t that be nice to find sitting on your bed? Look at the hand!
She didn’t buy it because it was $30.
Been and while eh? I haven’t been out shopping like I used to and just plain old blah. I thought about you lots though!
Today I bought something that made me need to post. You know my obsession with these clay pigs! (and again I link) well, I bought a little slider one!
I had to. Really really had to! Right now they are sitting with the little one on top of the big one. I love them.
As with any event, everyone wants to be first to spread the news. In collectibles, everyone wants to be the first to have their items on the market. It is why you saw William and Catherine books in the stores a week after the engagement announcement (the books were on the presses just waiting for dates and pictures) and how we will probably see a wedding book in the next 2 weeks.
When it comes to babies it is a little bit more difficult since you don’t have the exact date of birth and gender beforehand. (let along name) Royal Albert got around this in 1984 by producing this mug.
I have a feeling this was produced before September 15, 1984….Note the lack of gender, birth date and name. (Henry Charles Albert David – you’d know him as Prince Harry)
I love it and do own it now. Mom told me about it but she felt it was too much to spend on a mug but I have to question how many opportunities I would get to own this so I went and bought it.
