Today was good. 
Today was fun. 
Tomorrow is another one. 
~Dr. Seuss
I picked this little 'vase' up
at my local Goodwill a little
while ago for a meer $.79!
Since coming in my home
it's purpose has been to
hold toothpicks since I really
had no idea of it's original use,
I just thought it was cute.
Then I saw this on Heidi's
site. Now I know and as soon
as I have more ripe tomatoes
my little 'vase' will have
a new job! It's always
fun to visit a thrift store
and find a little 'something
something' isn't it?

  1. Love the fading, red design... what a great find!

  2. Tracey - what a find! And for only 70 cents. I love stumbling up on treasure like that. I wish we had a goodwill. We have a church thrift shop, but it is small and mostly clothes. Looking forward to yard sale season though. Blessings ~ Elizabeth

  3. My dad is an avid toothpick user. I love the red swirls around it. Perfect use for it, although that Heidi is brilliant so I think her use is quite apt as well.

  4. What a great pick up! A lovely little jug, perfect for dressing.

  5. What a little treasure!!! My Dad was a big coffee drinker---and in restaurants, he used to be served his cream in little "pitchers" like that....single serving size. I think it would make a marvelous vase---or dressing container--or toothpick holder--or doublepoint needle container! Have fun with it!

  6. Beautiful! I always go to the kitchen area of a thrift store :) I love that there is more than one purpose of your great find.

  7. So cute! The red design is delightful and I love that link you shared with us. I'm always amazed at how people can photograph food. Happy Thursday to you!

  8. I love it...with the red at the pretty!

    ~Have a lovely day!

  9. That is so cute! I love cute and useful! The design on it is great.

  10. I have several of these (though I really love the design on yours) because they are so useful. Yes, flowers and sauces... and toothpicks and cream and ...

    Blessings, Debbie

  11. Adorable...
    love love love red
    it would have come home with me if I saw it!!

  12. Perfect, I love tiny finds where it's so easy to fall in love with the small details. Perfect.

  13. I love red, and tiny pitchers. This one is a fantastic find!!!

  14. Would you believe me if I told you that I have been on a hunt for a creamer and sugar pair similar to this!!! And for 79 cents?! That is awesome :).

    btw, Dr. Seuss quotes are the best :).

  15. Tracey what a darling little find...I love itty bitty things like this:)

  16. Thank you for the very sweet comment...I understand how you feel my youngest has three years left of school...and I will be enjoying each and everyday!!

    I have looked on Raverly..I am thinking a scarf...or maybe a wrap?

    Blessings to you,


  17. ooohhhhhhhhhhh that is a FIND!
    And I love that you found a similar one on Heidi's site!
    You KNOW I love that.
