Thrifty Finds & The Truth About My Kitchen

I did my fair share of needlepoint and counted cross stitch 'back in the day'. I don't have enough time or patience for it these days.  I still love needlepoint, petit point, and Aubusson pillows and rugs. They can be rather costly, so when I find a decent price on something I will grab it up real fast.  I was fortunate to find these at a yard sale.

 This is Mason's favorite
He carries him around a lot!
We named him Pugsly

 This is little Penelope

Pugsly and Penelope are weighted on the bottom
I guess that's so they can stand up

They are super clean and still have their "Waverly" tags on
For now, they are just being cute on my little gate leg table.
