Isnt this the cutest little elephant figurine?! I am going to use it as a ring holder. Hello fun jewelery organization.

It was elephant week apparently! I also found a sterling silver elephant brooch. I plan on taking the back pin off and attaching it to a plain cuff that I have.

A bright yellow Pyrex bowl. I have this dream of opening my cupboards and all I see is brightly covered vintage Pyrex dishes.


Thrifting tip:
Get an early start. Early bird gets the Pyrex! Plus...in the morning things are more organized, the employees are generally happier and there are not tons of people yet. Just a little observation.

I LOVE elephants too! They are my favorite pachyderm :) That first little elephant that you're going to use as a ring holder is SO cute! I've been looking for a cute little ring holder - you found a perfect one!

I said I was going to start going to the thrift stores every week didn't I? Crud, I forgot. Okay, next week. No really, I'm putting it on the calendar. I think I should plan the same day every week so it turns into a ritual. Gotta start the kiddos diggin' through trash at a young age, right? I like the ring holder. Super cute.

okay those are all great purchases. i'm really loving that ring holder elephant. i don't have a ring holder (really need one) and think that's absolutely brilliant to use that little guy. also love the vintage pyrex. totally reminds me of the bowls my mom had when i was a kid. now you just need a light green and orange one!

Oh Lindsay! That' elephant ring holder is so cute, as is the brooch. I'm a lover of vintage Pyrex too and I really don't know why I just don't take the doors off my kitchen cabinets. They very rarely get closed! My kitchen looks like that kitchen scene out of "Sixth Sense" sometimes.

Love the yellow pyrex. I have one of those too! I agree, it would be so cool to open up a cupboard and see all brightly colored vintage pyrex bowls!

I just lost an elephant pin just like the one you said you will attach to a plain cuff. Do you know where to find them? Mine had been my mother's before she passed away and I would love to replace it. sarah.bird@yahoo.com
