When I’m feeling winter weary there’s almost nothing that can cheer me up more than a successful trip to my usual thrift store haunts.
Here’s a group pic of a recent haul.
I’ve been looking for a vintage bread box for the kitchen for eons, and I finally found one that’s in great shape. All it needs is a little cleaning.
When I got it home I decided I wasn’t going to use it as a bread box after all.
It fits perfectly on my craft room shelf for some hidden storage and that’s where it
Check out these heavy wire teacups, and chicken wire teapot… they’ll be great as outdoor decor… if the warm weather ever decides to make an appearance. At this point… I’m pretty doubtful, and I won’t be surprised if winter is still here in June.
But I choose to be optimistic… (in spite of my pessimistic self) and I see this teapot stuffed with cocoa fibre and planted with something pink and fabulous.
And these teacups would be great for teaspoon wind chimes… or I could plant them with some hens and chicks… or I could do both. How crazy would that be? Ha!
The navy and aqua combination of this enamel cup is sooo to my liking, and I finally found my first ever enamel funnel. Yay!!
This beautifully tarnished silver teapot is unmarked and very heavy.
Check out her feet.
And the undersides of her feet!!
Is that attention to detail or what?
And last but not least… I really love these enamel bowls.
The largest bowl at the back left is marked Bumper Harvest and the mid sized bowl on the right is marked Lucky Elephant. Why? I haven’t a clue, but I love that name.
The small mustard gold bowl is unmarked, but it has a whole lotta crazing going on.
And I love crazing!
I have a project idea for these bowls, but I need to find the missing piece to put them all together. I’m on the hunt for that now.
Wish me luck… and happy thrifting!
