Thrifting a Go-Go

Check out my disco-ball owl!

Remember Avon? Or maybe you guys still buy Avon? I haven't really thought about Avon for years, but there was a time when I bought lots and lots of Avon in my 20s. This little dude is from back then I do think. He's full of weird-smelling powder that immediately made me remember my Avon days. Isn't Avon known for it's super good skin care line right now? Maybe it's time to revisit Avon.

Did I use the word Avon enough?

Bella and I went thrifting yesterday and had such a good time. Flaked on photos which is unfortunate cuz we saw a few weird things. As you always do when thrifting.

This is my favorite find of the trip. He's sitting in my office making me pretty happy right about now.

I loved Avon's little figurines that held lip stuff or perfume stuff or lotions and potions.. used to have a little white lamb whos head swiveled off to reveal perfume, I think. I also loved their honeysuckle fragranced stuff. That was a Looong time ago.

I like him. Great shot -- among the live green contrast and light. Very nice. It makes ME happy just looking at the digital shot.

Yes. Avon. They have nice costume jewelry now and then too. I'm not as loyal as I used to be, but they definitely have their niche.

(I think of you now every time I see an owl.)

What a cutie! I'd be happy too if he was sitting on my desk. I'm not much of a thrift store person but put me in a bookstore and watch out!
