i don't look for valuable/rare stuff, i just pick up stuff that i like. like these little owls painted like parrots. i usually only like to pay a few dollars a set as well. you can find all kinds of cute sets at antique malls. i don't find many good ones at thrifts or estate sales
a friend gave me this pair as a thank you for watching her boyfriend's dachshund! isn't that cute? chloe might be staying with us again soon! i can't wait!
another gift from a friend. i love that they are obviously squirrels (check on the acorns in their hands) but they were painted like skunks, with halloween cat eyes! i actually saw these a few times at a favorite antique mall but always resisted. then i got them for christmas! perfect!
