So last Saturday John and I went in the opposite direction that we usually go for our breakfast and garage saling just for a change and to keep life interesting… and I found some cool stuff.
I have brass and silver goblets that I showed you in this shelf makeover, but this is the first time I’ve seen copper ones.
So I had to get them.
I also found a Victor sifter, 2 copper teapots, a GSW grater, a WM Rogers silver plate cream and sugar set, and 2 aluminum measuring cups.
I’m not sure what the little thing is on the left there, but it opens up. John thinks it’s an incense burner, but I’m not sure. Any thoughts?
I’ve just started collecting vintage wooden rulers for a project. I have a lot more to find before that happens, but I’m on my way. The silver goblets will be used in wind chimes.
In the box are some stray keys, and a vintage cookie decorating set. I already have a couple of those sets, but I’m collecting for yet another project.
I love this metal gardening gal. Isn’t she fun?
I found this seashell lampshade a while back, but I forgot to show it. It’s quite heavy and quite gorgeous.
I got this lamp at the thrift store at their $1 lamp sale that they do every once in a while.
I love its details.
And I’ll be taking it apart and using the bits here and there.
Those flower-like pieces already have holes in them where crystals probably used to hang. Perfect for repurposing in a wind chime project.
And last but not least… this vintage wooden and metal step ladder was a garage sale freebie. It had $1 sticker on it, and I said I’d take if off his hands and he said “OK… take it for free”.
I have to admit that for a split second I wondered what was wrong with it, but it works perfectly and is very sturdy. John tried to give the nice old gentleman the loonie, but he wouldn’t take it. Okey, dokey. What more could we do?
It’s now in my craft room, which has a very tall ceiling, to help me get to the high shelves. There’s definitely no makeover in this step ladder’s future. It’s perfect just the way it is.
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
