This week’s thrifted treasures are a real mixed bag.
Even though I never use doilies I have a soft spot for handmade ones that have flowers. Especially if the flowers are pink.
I’ll enjoy the pretty for a little while and then it will be going to my etsy shop.
I thought these two were pretty cute in a steampunkish kinda way.
Check out the little kangaroo baby. So sweet.
Not sure why the tortoise/turtle is holding a cane, but maybe he was injured in a race with a steampunkish kinda hare. 🙂
These two characters are available here.
This vintage handmade purse caught my eye because I’ve never seen anything like it before. The squares, which are either wood, faux wood, or bamboo (not sure which), are cross stitched together in a patchwork pattern.
It has a tag in the interior side pocket that reads Made in Thailand.
It’s available here.
I also have an unexplained fascination with miniature chairs. Here are two wooden additions to my small and oh so accidental collection that started a while ago.
I say accidental because I never meant to start a collection, but I don’t seem to be able to resist them …or part with them either.
Whenever I see a big letter M I always think of Mary’s fabulous apartment on the Mary Tyler Moore show, one of my faves. My last name starts with an M so the ceramic letter is a keeper, but it will be getting a makeover.
These tablecloth weights would be great for windy picnics, or they could be used as curtain weights.
They’re available here.
Love these two very vintage loaf baking pans with their lovely patinas. I have a project in mind for these, but I need to find another piece.
I found more vintage wooden handled screwdrivers for my oh so intentional collection, and a rasp too. They are all keepers.
And what girl doesn’t need a pink handled hammer? This one surely does. The hammer head has seen a lot of use, but the handle is pristine. Love it!
And the red-edged enamel beauty will be repurposed at some point. I’m still looking for a few pieces for that particular project too.
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
