Last weekend when I was on a quest to find just the right thing for my kitchen china cabinet makeover I made time do a little thrifting as well, and I found some fun things.
I found these fun cork-backed pinwheel design coasters for 50 cents a pack.
They’re the perfect colours, aqua and red, to go with my in-progress kitchen makeover.
I have a thing for old banged up enamelware, and this $1 red-rimmed little bowl certainly qualifies.
The cute little kitchen timer isn’t vintage, but at $1 I couldn’t resist it. It just got a makeover that I’ll be sharing later.
And you know me? I’ve never seen a silver teapot set that I didn’t like.
This sort of art deco-ish set has a really aged patina that I absolutely love. I can make out parts of the markings on the bottoms where it says Toronto… and the word Standards is there too. I can’t quite decipher the rest.
I’ll have to do some research on these, but this set is a keeper so there’s lots of time to do that. I’ll have to make some room for it in my hot pink china cabinet.
I can never turn down a pretty set of silver, especially when the lot is just $3. These will be perfect for chimes.
And this 25 cent vintage yellow enamel-handled whisk will be a great temporary replacement for the non-vintage whisk that’s hanging from my repurposed rolling pin window valance.
I’m on the hunt for a red handled one, but this will do for now.
And it’s always great to find inexpensive craft supplies like this large $1 lot of mixed scrapbooking papers.
You never know when I might get the itch to do a small decoupage project, and it’s nice to have this stash to pull from at a moment’s notice. Also, papers are so easy to store.
I think maybe John and I, on a day when we’re feeling particularly clever, should be able to put this 3D wooden Eiffel tower puzzle together.
It says it’s not meant for children under 3 years old (because of the small parts), so I guess that means a child 3 years old and older should be able to put it together.
Yikes! Talk about pressure. lol.
I certainly hope we can do it. 🙂
Has any of you ever tried one of these puzzles?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
