Tonight I thought I would share a few of my thrifty finds from the past few weeks. I would have liked to be doing more DIY posts, and I am in the middle of a few projects, but none are complete. So … lets go through my recent purchases instead. 🙂
I love this painting I got today. It’s a real touchable painted painting! I love the way it depicts sheets of rain reflecting on the street. I love rainy day pictures. There is something cozy about them. It’s quite large and in perfect condition. Now where to hang it ….
I also picked up these Fine Bone China Salt and Pepper Shaker Bunnies. So cute and great for my Easter displays.
Who can go past enamel? I got these 2 plates and bowl, plus the really cool green teapot. I can’t wait to display them in the kitchen.
I also found this cute little silver tea pot, and the larger gold one. Again, something for my “currently being restyled” kitchen.
I recently started collecting gorgeous old engraved cutlery. I love this set I got today. They look so cool in my Mason jars.
Last week I picked up this old wooden toolbox. I’ve always wanted one, but never come across one in my travels. It’s huge. I’m not sure what I will do with it yet. And the intricate little bowl is perfect for displaying my Easter goodies.
A few weeks ago I also picked up these gorgeous little (dessert?) forks. I think I’m being to fall in love with old cutlery. 🙂 And the old tea pot is so tarnished. The lady I got it from was saying how I could clean it up, but to her surprise I told her I loved it tarnished!
And finally, I found this old Brentwood style chair at a yard sale and knew it was coming home with me. I’ve also got a thing for Brentwood chairs, although I don’t come across many of these either.
So that is a wrap up of all my recent thrifted goodies. I can’t wait to find places to display them. I’m also super excited to show you all the work I have been doing in the kitchen. The cabinets are looking amazing (if I do say so myself). 🙂 We even got a new Range Hood today. Thank God. The old one was so nasty. I even attempted to paint it. Anyway, I plan to install the new one myself which is another first. Where would I be without YouTube tutorials. 🙂 Wish me luck and I hope to be sharing my kitchen reveal soon.
Enjoy your weekend!
