thrifted :: howard pierce doves

5_thursday

this past summer i found an adorable set of howard pierce birds (doves, i believe) on ebay. i'm not a huge ebay buyer but i just happened to be browsing. i bid on them and won the pair for approximately $20. then, a few weeks later we were at a flea market and my hubby spotted another pair of different howard pierce birds (geese)! we scored the second set for a mere $5! i can't remember which set is which now, but i believe these are the ones from ebay. i'll have to feature the other set another time.

as a side note, everything you see in this photo happens to be thrifted! i got the great type tray from my brother & sister-in-law for my birthday this past fall. i'm hoping to spend my summer finding tiny treasures to fill it with!

Lori - I have an old type tray. It's hanging on a wall in my studio and filled with rubber stamps. :-)
