You may or may not have noticed that I didn’t post any finds of the week last week. There was a reason for that… and the reason was… that I found exactly nothing.
Nada. Zip. Zilch.
But thankfully this week was not a repeat, and I did find a few cool treasures.
Like this set of vintage galvanized metal tin heart shaped wall candle sconces.
They’re a little banged up, but they have a lovely detailed edging. They’re about 11″ high.
I always pick up metal strainers when I see them. This is the second one I’ve found that looks like this.
There are so many fun ways to repurpose these babies.
The first one being for thrifted marble storage.
I found one large bag of mixed marbles for $1. So cool! 🙂
My garden project wheels are spinning.
This handmade Cepelia Polish folk art doll was too pretty to pass by.
She’s about 10″ tall and has so many lovely details!
She appears to be hand carved from some kind of wood, but I’m really not sure. I need to do some more research on her. What I’ve read so far does suggest that she is probably vintage.
She still has her label on the bottom of her wooden stand.
I love it when labels are filled out by hand like this.
And of course I have to pick up vintage silver plate teapot sets whenever I see them.
These pieces are marked Victorian plate and they have the most amazing patina.
Isn’t it gorgeous!
That’s not trick photography. This is 100% au natural patina.
These will make perfect wind chimes, but they’ll have to wait until I find the perfect vintage necklaces to use as the hangers. That patina deserves something special.
I have a bunch of finished wind chimes ironically waiting for a nice still day so I can take some pictures and get them into my etsy shop. The wind just hasn’t stopped, and the temps are playing with us like yoyos. We seem to be caught in the middle of a weather tug of war between winter and spring.
Hopefully spring will win soon. I hope it already won in your neck of the woods. 🙂
Thanks so much for reading and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
