Did you ever come home with a ‘thrift’ find and your husband said....

I really LIKE these?

I see two here but weren’t there some others?

Oh....well, maybe there are a couple more here in the lanai on this bottom shelf!

More often I hear, “What in the world are you going to do with these?”

So who knew he would like the fish....

ALL of them! heehee!

(I paid $1 for the bag!)

(The two glass ones are marked Sakura China)

And I’m about to run out of excuses to embroidery.

Today I found this small embroidery hoop for 15 cents.

I have been saying I want to do some stitching

...for how long?

I’m joining Time Travel Thursday

and Thrifty Things Friday!

And since these are my hubby’s ‘favorite things’

 I’m joining Katherine’s Corner too!

Happy hunting...or fishing!

what is it about the guys and the fish? At least we 'hooked' us good ones.
I must thank you. I showed my guy your sunroom. I have been wanting one for eons and he actually studied yours, and I do believe he will comply~~~now that we are retired and he has time on his hands. I love having him around all the time.
BlessYa and Thanks again'

Ames said...

Those are cute Diane! Some people don't believe me when I say it is hard to find tropical stuff in Florida but it's true for me. I can never run across tropical stuff, well not unless I want to pay an outrageous retail price.~Ames

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I think you got a great deal on the fish! Cute!! My hubby doesn't pay much attention to what I get, he always says that if I like it that's all that matters.

Ginger Zuck said...

Your fishies are very cute. It's always nice when the hubby appreciates your good finds!

Cranberry Morning said...

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Yes, it happens a few times during the year.."what are you going to do with that?" I love your fish napkins rings, they're so cute and colorful, nice for a beach and summer table. Hugs,

You've taught him well. Josie would have all sorts of fun playing with those fish at the dinner table.

Dorothy said...

Oh, what sweet little fish! And no, mine never said that! :)

Della said...

Love your tropical fish, you got a great bargain! I'm glad for you that your hubby liked them, too! My hubby never questions what I buy anymore...after 30 something years I guess he knows better lol.

Have a great weekend Diane!

Hugs!

I like your colorful fish, they have a cheerful aspect to them, and wow, the price was right.
So now you need to get busy embroidering?

Great find! And a big bonus that your husband liked them. Heehee

Mine usually rolls his eyes and says... MORE JUNK?

Your fish are adorable and what a great price!

Marina@Picnic at Marina said...

ImSoVintage said...

The fish are adorable. Who wouldn't love those :)

Anne said...

Diane, I just love the fish. Their so colorful. Your hubby sounds like my husband, lol. Have a nice weekend.

Joy said...

Love those fish. I just got a little nemo or clown fish flag for our backyard pond. My dh was mad when I told him how much I paid for it though...lol

Diann said...

Your fish finds are so fun and cute! Great colors! Thank you for sharing at TTF and have a terrific day!

Anne said...

oh, that is fun when they like the finds! Those fish are perfect for your florida home... napkin rings, right? What a GREAT deal!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Love those colorful fish! My hubby is usually astounded (in a good way) with what I bring home -- wish I could snag a bunch of those hoops for that price! My girls want them to use for decorating their apartment and they're expensive and hard to find now -- who would have guessed! Can't tell you how many of those things I tossed over the years :(

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Very cute fish! I bet your hubby would love an embroidered fish for his man room!

Chenille Cottage said...

Your napkin rings are wonderful...and, so perfect for your beach theme! I agree, it is really fun when hubby likes our treasured finds. I brought a thrifted lamp in need of new wiring home (it's pictured in my recent post) and he loved it. I am such a cheapskate that he usually doesn't worry that I've spent too much.
Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a blessed weekend, my friend!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Your colorful fish are the perfect complement to your Florida home. No wonder hubby likes them! Have a good weekend!

Introverted Art said...

I always get a little surprised when he likes some thrift store purchase, as he generally thinks second hand means garbage :P

Martha said...

Strangely enough my husband almost always loves my finds as much as I do! Great finds. Treasure hunting is such fun :)

Donna@Conghaile Cottage said...

"I LOVE those fishies"!!! Your hubby sounds JUST LIKE mine! AND my Guys would like the fish too... "WHO COULD RESIST THEM"!
