The Penny Worthy Project



Well that wonderful week between Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Christmas season has come and gone. I love this week, it's like a bit of suspended animation, everyone is just on the verge of rolling out decorations, parties, Christmas cards and present wrapping. I usually like to spend the week getting projects finished and the house cleaned so we can decorate. This year I spent the week being a mom of sick children. We ran the gamut of the yuck and because we all know what that means I will not go in to detail. One night mid week I got a little jumpy and I needed to escape the barf bowls and thermometers so I ran off. Luckily I discovered that one local thrift store is open until 7 and it was empty! I spent an hour just roaming the aisles and being blissfully alone.

I found these great salt and pepper shakers by Catalina. Pretty mod eh?








And look at this tart pan! I love the color.


I am so making this into a clock.







 Love the wear on the back side too, it's been around.









Lots of great link ups last week--Wendy brought us a post about finding a bunch of costume jewelry at a yard sale. That doesn't happen where I live, the market is small and everyone is a "picker" these days, she got really lucky in my opinion. Foy brought us her Year End Recap of a Plan to Preserve, did you see how much food she put by? Lamberts Lately linked up Frittata Cups and a Stocking Stuffers for Baby list that is out of this world. Van of course brought the fun with her Windfall of Toys post, so much fun(plus I love Yuko!!). Ally Jo brought her LOVE of Ironstone to which I replied "will you please write a post about Ironstone", because I am CLUELESS. Women in Real Life linked up her vintage (cough cough!!) Christmas Stamps, love those stamps!! Reneesance had a great post about all the Fabric her mom gave her, lots of beautiful old fabric. And finally Amy and Angie shared a Hiding on Black Friday post with all their vintage finds, awesome fur stole!

How are YOU living the Penny Worthy Project lifestyle?? I'd love to see posts linked up to budgeting, thrifting, ebay sellers, etsy stores, recycling, upcycling, making a life doing what you love and basically anything that makes you heart sing!!




  Peace and Love--

  1. Love both the finds, very practical and beautiful. I've been working on something non-stop the whole season. Can't wait to be at a stopping point to just soak in some family and friend time ;p
