***First, I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments on yesterday's post...while I was in the midst of a pity party.
Some of you really helped put things in prospective for me, and I wanted to say thank you! I am not saying I feel any better...yet....but hopefully I will. Honestly, I find it so hard to believe one thing could disrupt my thought process so much and stir up all these hurtful feelings....talk about PMS on steroids....that is just how I feel....
I had to take my own advice and go back and reread the post I had up for Sunday...In fact, I printed it out to keep it in eye shot for a while....man, I tell you I have had a struggle.....but enough of that....you know what time it is....right???

This week, I have a some recent finds that I could not pass up. I know lots of people collect salt and pepper shakers. Well, when I found these lonely salt OR pepper shakers without their match, I felt sorta sorry for them and took them home.
These three are sitting on a shelf in my hallway, they looked lonely without their match, but now have friends to hang out with......sorta like the Island of Misfit Toys.......
This little pig was found at a garage sale....a bargain for 50 cents.
This little lamb was sitting on a table at the Catholic Schools Garage sale this past weekend, he was only 10 cents. He is rather heavy for a salt or pepper shaker and the texture of the china is more like ironstone. I am sure this is a very vintage piece.
Here is the underneath side and the markings on this little guy.
This sweet little elephant was found at goodwill. I think I might have paid a dollar for it. I just thought it was the sweetest thing.
I love the colors, pink and purple......
This one is stamped Japan on the bottom and still has its original cork bottom.
Now, this is really a strange thing to collect, and I only really have three of them...so does that mean I have a collection? I don't know, but I could not pass them up when I spotted them all alone. They now have a good home among friends........yea, I guess I do have a problem.......
Have a great week everyone........if you are new to Vintage Thingies Thursday....link in and show off your treasures.......
