Happy Thrifty Thursday friends!
So between being away for our Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend, and then coming down with a head cold, I haven’t been doing much thrifting but I did find a few cool things last week… including a mystery item that I’m hoping you guys can help me identify.
I love these vintage green glass bottles/carafes, especially the Paris Pernod Fils one. I’ll be keeping these for a while, but they might make it into my etsy shop some day.
This vintage mirrored vanity tray has a lovely gold metal edging, and it’s rather large at 13 1/2″ long. I found it a few weeks ago, but for some reason it never made it into a post. It’s already in my shop here.
I found the aged brass angel on the left a few years ago, and the new angel will go nicely once it gets some much needed patina.
I’ll be leaving her on an outside shelf unit on the back deck for the winter and I’m sure she’ll be lovely next spring. I may even be able to bring her in after a month or two of winter. I’ll have to wait and see how long it takes for the magic to happen.
I’ve decided to start a collection of vintage metal angels… silver, brass, aluminum, copper, pewter. These are my only two so far.
I’m always looking for vintage kitchen gadgets and I found 3 veggie peelers. When I’ve enough collected they’ll be used for another repurposed grater owl wind chime.
I also found a vintage egg beater with a lovely green wooden handle, a vintage wooden handled egg whisk, a vintage nut cracker, and a mystery item.
I have no idea what this is, but with the orange paint and the flowers it sure has a real retro 60s-70s vibe. It’s about 5″ long, and has a Hong Kong mark in the metal that can barely be seen with a magnifying glass.
I’ve tried doing some research, but since I don’t know what to call it I’m not having any luck.
What do you think it is?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
