Happy Thrifty Tuesday friends?
John and I were out of town on the weekend and my project post didn’t get finished in time. So I’m mixing it up by sharing my latest finds today, and I’ll post my project later in the week.
Unlike last week when I found a mother lode of silver plate pieces, this week’s cool finds are a real mix of totally unrelated treasures.
Like this small Made in India Cloisonne brass teapot. I brought it home intending to sell it, but it has some damage to the cloisonne. I think it will make a lovely wind chime instead.
This vintage hats and coat stand salt and pepper set is very cool and available here. The yellow hat is the salt and the black bowler is the pepper. The black metal stand can be used for toothpicks.
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I have a thing for miniature chairs.
Well here I am again… unable to resist this metal sofa and chair with fabulous heart swirlies.
At about 4″ wide and 8″ high the heart chair is about the same size as the chair on the right, which I found a few years ago. All 3 pieces are available in one lot here.
Do you see a face in the chair back on the right or am I seeing things again? lol.
When I saw this piece from a distance the aluminum grabbed me like it always does… and the bits of blue paint. I thought it was some kind of old ice cream parfait cup.
But upon closer inspection…
…turns out it’s for dry measuring. The inside is in great shape, but the outside… not so much.
It was obviously used… a lot.
Another rolling pin for my collection of 16 pins of all shapes and sizes.
This is the first one I have with this kind of nub on the end.
And I found a 1969 publication of Anne of Green Gables which, shock of all shocks, I have never read… and I’ve always been a big reader. I must be the only Canadian female my age who hasn’t read this iconic piece of Canadian literature… or at least the only one who will admit it. lol. Oh.. the shame.
When this particular version was published I was just eight years old. That would have been the perfect age to be reading about Anne’s adventures.
I think I’ll just have to channel the eight-year-old girl inside me and read it this winter… so I no longer have to suffer the shame. lol.
Have you read Anne of Green Gables? If you did… what did you think?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
