THURSDAY'S THRIFT FINDS..."do your own thing"

I found this groovy, luv, music box, van from 1988 at the thrift store yesterday when I went with my friend Jenni and her super cool mom Marcelle.  I had a great time with them!  We started out at Jenni's house where we had a tasty lunch to fuel up for some retail therapy. 

It works perfectly while playing "Hey Jude".  I make up my own words to the song which go something like this....Hey Jude, I saw ya nude--don't try and fake it--I saw you naked....remember to let  her lalala.  When will I ever grow up?  Probably, next week when I am lying there with stitches  and pain meds or NEVER.

Where were you in 1969?  Woodstock perhaps?  I was a toddler.

She was .95 cents....bargain!

And this is where she will live, among the pink McCoy pottery collection and other various thrifted favorites that are dust collectors. 

I also found this groovy serving dish with a detachable bowl.  Just unscrew the bowl and use it separately if you so desire.  I also thrifted this bracelet and earrings for Spring.  All 3 items totalled $4.49 

I am linking this to Brass In  Pocket over at Dawn's blog, that used to be known as Spunky Chateau.  Join the fun and show off your thrifty loot.  Dawn xo

Hey Jude- I saw you nude- hahaha you crack me up! What an adorable addition to your collection- I noticed from the date on the bottom- the hippie van and I are the same age! :)

Oh my goodness, that music box is amazing! And you, my friend, are hilarious! I love your version of "Hey Jude". LOL!

What a cool music box - Enesco is a good quality brand (I used to work in a Christmas store, and we sold a lot of Enesco music boxes).

I love that you have the cassette tapes of two of my all-time favourite movies! "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is my all-time number one. :)

Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my blog - and for following! Thank you!

I love your little van. I was graduating from high school in 1969and was a 7th grader when the Beatles first came out. My second car was a '64 red Beetle and I have a little model with doors that really work.
