Haven’t had a lot of time to write in the past few months.
Until I can actually scratch out a few sentences about something real,
I thought I’d just post a few pix of some recent thrift store and flea market finds.
Carved wooden fish.
A teeny soapstone hippo.
A row of little painted soldiers and a matching egg to store them in.
And a row of little painted Santas too!
A great little stitched piece – likely Guatemalan, though can’t be sure.
Found a perfect frame for it at a new thrift store the very next day. (Hooray for new thrift stores!!)
And just today, I finally made it up the freeway to collect this vintage window cabinet from a craigslister.
I saw the ad weeks ago, but just never found myself in the seller’s neighborhood.
So glad he still had it when I called this morning!
I slapped that coat of blue paint on the inside the minute I got it home.
Still have to clean up the outside a bit.
Can’t wait to hang it up and tuck in some tiny treasures in the next day or two.
Also picked up some Christmas bows, some wrapping paper, a few small Halloween decorations, a short stack of magazines, a couple of books, and another vintage biscuit cutter.
Oh yeah, did I mention I’ve started collecting vintage biscuit cutters?
I love their chippy chunky painted handles and all their little love dents.
Plus, I actually make biscuits. And sometimes they’re even good. Ha!
That’s all for now!
What treasures have you collected lately?
