Do you remember Pepe Le Pew?

I found him at the Thrift store today!

He’s a piggy bank now and the cutest one ever!

I also found this little ‘Made in Japan’ pixie.

He thinks he belongs with the seashells.

Of course after the ‘photo shoot’ I had to rearrange the fish!

And I thought this was the cutest little egg dish with a salt and pepper shaker to match. But I never have room in the cupboard! lol

Pepe even had his little stopper at the bottom. I think I’ll start saving for another trip to the beach!

Heather said...

Yes, Ma'am! I remember the little stinker! Wasn't he in love with a cat? I remember Limburger cheese being involved. I know as a kid, I never wanted to every think of eating that cheese if it is connected with a skunk!

All your finds are very nice and it looks like you have an eye for bargains. Yet my favorite thing is the egg dish with the matching salt and pepper shakers. I remember Pepe Le Pew. Cartoons just aren't the same anymore, are they?

laurie said...

You have so much fun with your collections, looks so cute!!
The bag you sent me travelled four hours away this week with me to the city where Garry had heart surgery, I filled it with snacks for my grandson on the drive there and then took it daily to the hospital with my book and wallet, and all the things I needed for the day, I was so proud to tell people where it came from when they complimented me on my lovely bag!

Trace4J said...

Awesome finds.

Janice Moore-Petty said...

Ooo la la! I had a very special Pepe Le Pew and Penelope snow-globe that depicts them having a romantic moment over frothy latte that I sold on Ebay a few years ago! There's a pic of it on my blog in the right column. It's so sweet!

Janice Moore-Petty said...

It was musical too!

Susanne said...

Hi Diane. I can only see the button for the signs on your previous post, and this one just shows me the little skunk you found. Same thing use to happen on another person's blog, just don't know why. It is like the pics are not there but the description is. It doesn't happen all the time. Maybe it is because I use Foxfire and need to change to Google Chrome or something. I have been stalling doing that because I will have to change all my passwords for chrome. That would be an all week job, I dread it.
Love your blog and always enjoy visiting. Sometimes I look around and don't leave a comment though.
(((HUGS))) Susanne :)

Susanne said...

OOOPS! IT is Firefox....Foxfire would be the series of books from the Appalachian Mts.

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Oh, yes! I thought he was cute and now you have your own!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Linda Walker said...

I love your little "pixie" find....I have several in green that my grandmother gave me. She used to put them in her flower pots next to her plants. Reminded me of her....

You can email me at:

I have satellite Hughs Net so I would think it would be pretty fast, but right now I think any slowness could be from all the "stuff" I have on my pc and I need to do some ridding out of all the clutter. I am open to suggestions, so feel free to suggest away. I keep intending to add my email address on my home page, I suppose I would have to add it as a gadget?
It has been awhile since I messed with any layout things....last time I did that I messed up my page and had fits trying to fix it, lol
Thanks for any help. I am headed for bed cause I have to be up at 5am, but will check back tomorrow afternoon when I return from babysitting.
Susanne :)

Someone must be cleaning out their cupboards because I am finding the best little figurines at the thrift this week.
If I had seen Pepe he would have come home with me too!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Pepe is adorable . . . but I'm loving that deviled egg tray! How sweet is that? Great finds!

❦Bayside Gal❦ said...

So cute! I love that he is a bank. The pixie is so retro! I once collected egg dishes. I had plenty of room to display them. When I moved a few years ago, I lost all my display space. I ended up giving a way a few of them. The rest are packed up just in case I every have room again. I thinks thats called "hording" LOL.

Rebecca said...

OH...I remember Mr. Pepe! That was an INCREDIBLE FIND! How cute and HOW FUN!

Love that egg dish, too! WOW!

I have that egg dish....in that exact color, and a second one in gold - just the same, only different color....and I love them! I just took both of them with stuffed eggs to a girlfriends lunch....and those "chickens" were the hit of the day! It sounds like you might have left "your's" in the store???? What will power if you did:). Helen p.s....thanks for the card you sent, so fun to receive!
