Gleanings

Here’s what I found this week. A leather dress-up belt for kids fancy outfits, $.50. A round framed tile that I will probably repaint with something else and hang. I like the shape, $3. And the lid only for my tangerine Pyrex dish.  I’ve been seeking to find it for a while now, $.50.

The pot place

April 10, 2012 § 1 Comment

With the seasonal trend encouraging plants in the home, look no further than your local thrift store for a huge selection of potting and display options. These cost from $.50-$2 and include a sugar bowl. There are so many shapes and colors to be mixed and matched!  The plants are from Ikea. I love my bit of green in the kitchen.

Sucker for ties

The fat, textured, bright, delicious ties of several decades ago. I just can’t say no to them. They are jammy and these 5 are the latest in the collection. I’ve collected them for years and have lined my staircase with them.

Happy up-the-stairs:

A cup of globalness

Thrifted to stash. Oh that stash! I struggle to keep it from growing too big to keep up with. Future projects, items that “just need a sanding and a coat of spray paint.” The tin measuring cup will join the others in my collection. I think I’m up to ten now, and I don’t know how they will be used in future. But they are cute! I’m thinking mobile or some sort of hanging installation. And the globe will be stenciled with something travel-y and globe-y. Painting is not my forte. Takes me hours of planning and graphing, but what an exciting end result it will be!
