Tin tin

Lovely little tin, 99cents. One can never have too many tins, they hold buttons, beads and children treasures.

Tea bowls

I adore these little cups, perhaps remnants from a chinese restaurant. I hope to find a whole collection of them over years.

Lotta pot

May 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

Some one made this by hand, and glazed it a lot like a Lotta Jansdotter pattern. I like it’s short fat wavy self and the little handles. I think it will be a planter. $3 at the thrift store.

Tin tray

Found: metal tray from England, necessity for the tea set. About 18″x12″. $3.

I bought them for the bones

Two items to stash and finish off later. A little owl trivet, very common. And a huge lamp shade, the bones of which will show up again here someday. $.99 and $5.

 

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.

Colanders

These were thrifted at different times and cost about $6 each. I love enamel, I love color, and I love how repeating objects become art. They live on a bench in the playroom by the window and currently hold stamps and wooden cars. Someday maybe I’ll use them for planters like this one via apartment therapy.

Apothecary jar

April 3, 2012 § 2 Comments

A giant beautiful jar. On the right is my laundry soap crock, and this one matches perfectly. It is 2 gallons or larger and cost $10. Stray socks? A triple batch of laundry soap? Maybe I’ll store yarn in it.

Fish and fabric

April 3, 2012 § 1 Comment

Vintage flowered fabric in the most curious of textures, it is slippery and stretchy, like gym shorts. More than 2 yards for $2, bordered and straight into the dress-up box.

And this lovely gem, a completely hand-stitched potholder, beautiful and intricate with all it’s little individual scales. Old but never used. $2. Take that, Anthropologie.

Left on the shelf- wheat sprigged dishes

A set of three lovely pyrex dishes. But I haven’t committed to a collection. I’m sure someone else is enjoying them!
