The ‘sweetest’ face “Wednesday Wee Ones”

Some thrift store finds are sweeter than others.

Look who has joined me in the lanai!

The sweetest little bear with the cutest little face!

The only thing he needs is a ribbon and I’m pretty sure I can find him one!

He was worth WAY more than 50 cents, don’t you think?

UPDATED!!! I wrote this post, went to the Hospice Thrift store and found another one! They both had their tags on and they were made by A*VON. I cut the tags off (I’ll pretend I made them. Prudence, don’t tell!!!)

And I found a girl ribbon and a boy ribbon to tell them apart!

So So Sweet!

More sweetness for the lanai.

Diane said...

Very cute-- you're a good "bow-tier" too! No finds for me yet. Might go out later today.

Debbie Moss said...

They really are sweet! And great buy too! The only thing I found was a pen at the back of my settee along with lots of other rubbish stuff that shoudn`t be there! :)
Hugs!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

They are so cute! I think they were originally 'born' with a little pink breast cancer shirt on! I had one from Avon and wish I still had that little bear now!! Cute as can be. No thrifting for me, but I have found a few treasures at Mom's!!

hugs, Linda

Such cure little guys. Do you have ARC in Florida? A very dangerous place. I look for pretty dishes, vases, tea cups, and now doll house miniatures. I need to just stay out of ARC and Goodwill. These little bears sure got lucky.

Vee said...

No. I'm trying to let things go around here. I spend time looking and asking myself if it would be okay to let it all go. Sigh.

Cute bears...glad that they are "an item" and that you reunited them, if only in your dreams.

Montanagirl said...

They are so sweet! We found one thing this week: a new kitchen faucet. Ours quit working and leaked water all over the cabinet under the sink.

Those bears are so sweet! Glad you have a girl and boy so they can keep each other company. Great buy as usual my friend.

Sweet hugs
Pat

Jake and I went to our favorite shop on Saturday and, while I found one cute little three-footed bean pot, I didn't buy it. Ouch! The line was so long it would have taken a half hour or more to go through. And no carts were available. That's what a rainy forecast will do---all the yard sale lookers came inside! Love your bear babies!

Betty Sneeringer said...

A very cute pair of bears. I put your blog on "Blogs You Might Enjoy" list on my blog.

TexWisGirl said...

they are cute. :)

Dayle Allen Shockley @ A Collection of Days said...

Aren't they adorable? Made for each other.

Laurie M said...

they are so sweet, your secret is safe, lol, you have such a good time in your lania (sp?)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

They are adorable! Love those sweet little faces. I'm glad they have each other.

Freckled Hen said...

Beary sweet! I love how you made one a boy and one a girl..
My favorite find this week is a vintage baby scale. It has the cutest lithograph on it, but I don't have anywhere to put it!

cucki said...

Aww so cute x

Joyce Mayer said...

Oh Miss Lavender Dreams that is cheating....besides I know that you make bee-u-tee-ful bears and animals AND a monkey that you are keeping from us.

Do these little twins have names? You do name your fur babies don't you?

Don't make me come to your house and teach you the rules.

Hugs & Giggles
Prudence ♥

Simply Shelley said...

Oh,my goodness they are twins :) So cute. I did find a very special fine,its a teddy too, I will be sharing him soon in a post. Blessings my dear friend

Jean Berryessa said...

I think you need to give them names. They are a perfect couple. Maybe Bogie and Bacall. I know the lanai friends will enjoy their company. Enjoy your day.

Curtains in My Tree said...

yes they are so cute

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Your new little teddy bears ARE so very sweet!!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Diane, what a sweet pair of bears for your lanai. Love the darling little faces and the ribbons are perfect. What a great find and yes, way worth more then 50 cents. How special you found them both so close to each other. Must have been meant to be. They look darling with your other little ones.

Have a great rest of the week and Happy Mother's Day too.
XO Blessings!

Musings from Kim K. said...

Keep on playing with your sweet bears! They might enjoy a tea party with your other wee friends. No time for thrifting lately, but I spied an estate sale or two that I might need to visit Saturday morning! Hugs!

Julie Corbisiero said...

Those are the cutest teddy bears! The ribbon on them do dress them up! Have a nice evening.

Carola Bartz said...

These little guys sure are super sweet. Who can resist a cute teddy bear like this? A lovely find!

Olive said...

Too cute. We have been shopping in North Georgia-I got a cute pig folk art wall hanging. xo, olive

Inger said...

I love it when sweet critters get rescued from the thrift stores. I know they will fit right in with the rest of your household and live there happily ever after.

Susie said...

I love those bears. The pillow behind them is the cutest thing. I am missing going junking. Sad face here. Hope you are having a fun week, xoxo,Susie

Red Rose Alley said...

haha, these bears are so sweet. I wish I still had an Avon lady to get one. I have been looking around for the perfect teddy bear lately. How nice that you found two alike, and I love their faces.

I wanted to tell you that my blog post referred to people in my outside world, not my blog friends. Our blog friends are the kindest and most supportive people around. I don't know what I'd do without them sometimes. Now, people in my outside world....that's a different story.

Happy Mother's Day, Diane.

love,
~Sheri

Patsy said...

If I went I would never find the great things you find.
Love your blog!

Cranberry Morning said...

Yes, they do have the cutest faces! That first one, sitting there waiting for you to find a ribbon reminds me of the book I read to my kids, 'A Pocket For Corduroy.' :-)

Doreen@househoneys said...

Awwwwwww! How sweet! Yes, I have found some interesting things this week, but none that can hold a candle to these cuties :).

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

Your bears are cute, but it's the Raggedy Annie's that are so adorable I can't stand it. Where do you find those?

I bet you were so much fun to play "dolls" with when you were a kid. xo

Carla from The River said...

I like them. I love bears. :-) So I totally understand why you could not pass them up.

Kathy said...

Oh my goodness, what sweet serendipity to find TWO!

cynthia lee designs said...

The little bears are adorable! All I found this week at the thrift store was a set of old measuring spoons...and I put them in the old scale in my kitchen.
hugs,
Cindy

Nancy's Notes said...

Diane, what sweet finds~! They are just adorable and what a deal too!
Hugs my friend,
Nancy

jody said...

Love thrift shop finds! You did good! Soo cute! Enjoy your day!

Jeannie Marie said...

My find wasn't nearly as much fun! I found a Revere Ware 3 quart pot and lid in nearly new condition. My all time favorite pots.

Jeanne said...

Awwwww... It must be destiny. They are made for each other!

Lynnie said...

I love bears and these are so darn cute! What great finds and to find it's twin...way cool.

Hugs, Lynnie
