I didn’t do much thrifting during my blog break, but I did find a few cool things recently.
This hand painted floral gourd is so pretty. I love the vibrancy of the colours.
It’s as light as a feather and a label on the inside of the lid, which fits like a glove, reads Polvera Cujae No. 4. I think it might be Spanish, but I have no idea really.
This vintage Proctor silver plate cream and sugar set is engraved with a fancy looking capital R.
This set has a lovely patina and is available here.
This vintage silver plate silent butler also has a fabulous patina on the outside.
And the inside is lovely and bright, showing us what the outside could look like if it was given a polish.
A cool lion is engraved on the top of the lid. This is available here.
I just posted a guitar DVD stand makeover and this $2 Eiffel Tower DVD stand will be getting a makeover too. It’s a definite keeper.
And last but certainly not least I found this large $2 oil painting in the same thrift store as the Eiffel Tower on the same day, and I fell in love with it.
Not just because I would love to take a stroll down that road lined with such a beautiful forest full of fresh greens and pretty pinks.
And not just because those sweet yellow birds stole my heart (I have a thing for birds), although those are two perfectly good reasons.
It was the writing on the back that especially got me. I love when things are inscribed. I just wish Agnes had dated it, but I still love it.
Thanks so much Agnes… and Janet. I’m not sure how or why this ended up in a thrift store, but it has found its new home. It looks perfect in my master bedroom.
Has anything stolen your heart lately?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
