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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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