Today I decided to show you some of the things I found at the thrift shops last weekend. Starting with the little deer in the picture below. He just happened to go perfectly with this sweet pair of maiden figurines that belonged to my mother-in-law! (Not to mention my obsession with collecting deer!)
I found 3 more wooden hangers - love the one that says Hollywood City Dye Works! The Style & Design book is a fabulous heavy volume with tons of pictures and information about designers, design firms, and manufacturers. The Circus Book was just different enough to catch my eye. And the adorable November angel was half price for $2.75! I'd love to have one for every month, but I want to find good deals!
Couldn't resist this tiny ceramic "furniture" made in Japan. And I love my flower pins! This one needs a wee bit of a touch-up. And I love enameled copper jewelry - like these pretty red earrings.
This Hallmark book is full of great vintage black and white photos:
I always pick up original artwork. This apple painting was done on a piece of wood veneer. I couldn't believe it when I saw that it is signed by the artist - who just happens to have the same first name and last initial as my mother-in-law! For 50c, into my basket it went!
Nor could I resist this blue and green ball fringe trim - one of my favorite color combos. I also picked up this bright green floral napkin, and the flower frog still in it's original packaging. And I have been trying to pick up Disney books for possible future decoupage projects:
I found a set of 6 of these lovely Geranium plates by Salem China, shown in the photo below. I'm not sure I have ever seen this pattern before? I was so tickled to find the black wooden easels - they were in a little bin for 50c each. I priced them the next day at Michaels - the regular prices range from 5.99 to 13.99 for the sizes I found! I got six of them . I use them all over the house to display pictures and dishes. The little bottle will be added to my Little Bottle Collection. And the candle holder? I just like glass - and this is so pretty and heavy.
And besides, it reminded me of a Jello Mold! Like the one on this:
(The little booklet was not a thrift find. It was a here-in-the-house find. More of those coming soon on another post!) I think this post is long enough already, don't you?
