Thrift Finds: Playing Cat and Mouse

Laurel Burch Coin Purse ($0.50); Vintage Mouse Trap Note Holder (<$1) Both: Goodwill Outlet
Animal things always draw my attention. Give me animal-themed, animal-shaped, or animal-printed, and I will be happy. 

I used to be a little bit hesitant to get cat-themed items though. I used to be so scared of cats, and it seemed hypocritical to buy cute cat things whilst running away from the real ones.

Little Moxie cat has totally reformed me, though, so cat items have inched their way near the top of my thrift list. This is especially true when it comes to quality vintage cat things, like this Laurel Burch coin purse for a mere 50 cents. :)

And this little mouse trap note holder? I mean, look at it- so cute! It's perfect on top of the hubby's desk to grab the little bits of paper that always seem to go missing.

I hope your week is going well!
