Thrifty Love {link party #50}

Friday, November 2, 2012

Wow! Have we really already had 50 thrifty link parties? That's awesome!

As you may already know, when I'm not thrifting I'm making jewelry. I wanted some fun ideas from y'all about a thrift theme piece of jewelry. What would you like to see in such a piece? Any fun sayings to include? Lets hear it!

This week I am sharing my teacups/cup and saucer sets. I've been collecting these for probably over a year from various thrift shops and yard sales for one purpose and one purpose only, teacup bird feeders! We've got a holiday craft sale coming up and I will be selling these. I know some of you collectors are gonna wanna kill me for turning some of these lovely sets into bird feeders but except for my own china set (that I got when I got married) I just don't collect them! I know I seem to collect everything else so why not teacups? I don't know??? They are just so much cuter as a bird feeder to me! :)
Don't they make you want to have a Mad Hatter tea party? lol!

 Isn't this one lovely? And black... seems rare, I don't see them too often.
 From this... something like this!
So that's what I've been up to lately. How about you?

Check out these features!

I love it, so cool! Isn't it awesome?

Last but definitely not least is this lovely piece from The Cottage Market! Now many of you may already know this but if you're like me and live under a rock then you may not know that The Cottage Market also hosts a thrift theme link-up. Thought you might like to know that if you didn't already!

  1. Thanks for hosting. Huge teacup collection. Makes a lot of birds happy.

  2. Thanks for hosting. Great features, huge collection of teacups/saucers.

  3. Oh, I just want to "shop" all your teacups! They are all so pretty. I do like to pick up the new fun and colorful teacup sets to make the bird feeders as well. I can't do it with my vintage/antique ones. LOL Thank you for sharing with us at TTF. I hope you have a fun weekend!

  4. Your tea cup project is wonderful and I imagine they'll do well at the holiday craft sale. You've been busy!
    I noticed you were hosting a link party so I joined in... always fun! Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier, I really appreciated your sweet comment.

  5. Great idea, bird feeder cups and saucers. Thanks for hosting.
