Weird things are happening here at TRV.
A draft post was somehow published on Monday night. What? I have no idea how that happened. Once I discovered it I had to re-date it so I can publish it when it’s finished, but now it shows up as a 404 error. I’ll have to figure out how to fix that sometime down the road after I’ve published the post.
Then yesterday I noticed I was getting a ton of traffic on my Finds of the Week #29 post from December 10th. That didn’t make sense until I came home and saw that Feedburner had delivered it again today. What? I have no idea how that happened either.
I’m starting to think that one of my vintage or antique finds came with a mischievous ghost that’s having some fun messing with me and my blog. So on behalf of this spirit I apologize for these shenanigans.
Hopefully when I finish purging my craft room this weekend the find that it came in with will be one of the things to go out. lol. Fingers crossed
But in an effort to keep the purge and thrift cycle rolling along I found some fun things this past week.
Check out this fabulous wooden pig chef. He’s about 16″ tall and has moving arms and legs. He’s a very happy looking pig and I think he’s meant to sit on a shelf. He’s a little chippy here and there but that just gives him character.
Here’s the little handmade wooden sled that the pig is sitting on, and another vintage egg beater for my collection.
I have no idea why I’m attracted to these old egg beaters, but I can’t pass them up especially for 25 cents. This one makes eight. I’m going to have to figure out a cool way to display them in the kitchen.
This lovely floral hat box is quite large and marked G.O.G. Once Upon A Rose, New York. Those are the oddest looking roses I’ve ever seen. lol. But they are very pretty irises.
It’s almost 16″ across and will definitely come in handy for craft room storage.
These vintage trunk hangers are in such excellent condition that they almost look brand spanking new, but I’m pretty sure they don’t make trunk hangers anymore.
And I love this small wooden storage box.
It measures about 8 ” across, and opens like this. It’s unmarked, but the florals have a Pennsylvania Dutch look to me.
This storage box, the hangers, and the pig will be in my etsy shop as soon as I do some research on them.
After having a green holiday season we’ve been dumped on with snowfall over the past few days and it’s a winter wonderland here now. It is very pretty, but the older I get the more strange snow seems… especially when I’m shovelling it.
But to look on the bright side it’s good exercise and it keeps these bones of mine moving. I think it’s time to make a snow angel again.
How’s your winter going? Any snow out your way?
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
