I picked up a few thrifty items this week.
I found this silver pitcher at a local thrift store for $3.93.
It's a little more modern than I normally go for, but it was nicely tarnished and a fairly heavyweight piece, so I scooped it up.
I thought it would make a nice vase.
I bought this blue bird (blue jay?) planter at another thrift store for $1.91.
It was made by Caffco.
I had never heard of Caffco before, but when I researched them I learned that it is a Montgomery, Alabama company that has been in business for 50+ years.
Not sure of its age, but it looks vintage.
Since it's a planter, I went to the Dollar Tree store
and bought one of their faux greenery pots. For $1.00. Because it is the Dollar Tree after all.
He looks pretty chipper considering he has a bush growing out of his back!
You did great!! I wish we had those prices in NY. Love the Silver Pitcher! It looks like it's silver plated. Am I right? It's in great shape. Enjoy. I'm going to a post card show on Saturday. I can't wait.. Wish you could come.
Great finds!! I love the silver pitcher. You can use that for so many different things. Its Great. The vintage blue jay is great too. I have gotten so into birds since I started blogging. I didn't feel that way before so I love looking at them around here...
have a great day
Great finds, Pam! I LOVE that Blue Jay!
The flowers looks super in the vase.

Great finds, for great prices! And that certainly does NOT look like a faux plant!
