Thrifted Finds #5 – Roses, Dragonflies & More

Last Friday I totally forgot to post my thrifted finds so I added a few more items that I found this week to the mix.
I go to the thrift store in the town where I work every day at lunch time, and most days I find something. Lately I’ve been looking for things that I can turn into Christmas decor, and it seems that the thrifting theme for these past few weeks has been multiples, and roses.
As in this ceramic vintage set of rose decorated salt & pepper shakers, & 1 extra salt. The detail in the roses is quite beautiful. They didn’t have any labels but these are definitely hand decorated because each rose is just a little bit different.

This set of 5 silver plate mini frames is also decorated with roses.

These dragonfly napkin rings are a little too insect like for me, but for some strange reason I couldn’t resist them. They may end up in my etsy shoppe eventually… I haven’t decided yet.

These cheese spreaders are really adorable. I love mini cutlery of any kind, and I already know what I’m going to do with these.

Some glass and crystal salt & peppers. The two small ones have what might be little jam servers as well.


I have a thing for vintage cookie cutters, and I think that circular piece is for making donut holes.



Even though these two sets of six spoons are stainless steel, I fell in love with them because of the rose pattern.


Here’s a close up. It’s really quite pretty.


Some of these things will go into storage waiting to be used for garden art projects, but several will be transformed into Christmas decor of some kind over the weekend and will be posted next week.

I already have some ideas brewing, and I can’t wait to get started! I hope you’re having as much fun with your Christmas projects as I am!

Thanks so much for reading, and have a great weekend. 🙂

  2. I went twice to the thrift store today and came back with just three things. Love the dragonflies and the cutters. I am hoping for a metal stamping tutorial with the spoons! In this house somewhere is about thirty S&P's. When I saw yours an idea hit. HMM – where could they be. I hope I did not throw them out! You would have loved the craft show and sale I went to today!

  3. Some cool stuff there! I am so excited to see what you make with the cheese spreaders. I am sure it will be amazing!!
