Thrift-Store Finds! The Beginnings of A Treasure Chest...
Some friends had told us of a lady who'd turned a small garden shed into a thrift store, we decided to head into town and look her up (and search her little store from top to bottom). I found several (ok, actually a bunch) of treasures. Afterwards we decided to visit another thrift store in town. I came away with an empty billfold and several more treasures! Mom also got me several goodies for an early birthday present (since I'd spent all my cash..*ahem).
Ever since I brought them home , I've been dying to show off my treasures, that will one day be used in my home. Pretty mind-blowing thought, actually. But yes, we're talking about treasures weren't we?
Let the gloating begin...*cough*
Now, I do not want any plastic items in my home, I want everything to be wood, metal, glass or stone-ware. So I had to dig a bit to find these goodies. But it was worth it. ;)
Spatula, long cooking fork, pie server, 1/4 cup flour scoop.
Metal ice-cream scoop, long silver serving fork, pizza cutter, bottle opener.
Two hand held cheese graters.
Aluminum donut cutter.
Aluminum funnel with a removable strainer.
Three aluminum measuring cups.
1 C. 1/3 C. Not sure what the little one is?
13 x 9 White enamel pan
Small crock/vase. This would be good for sourdough starter! Ohh..just the thought of it makes me ache for my own home so I can start using some of these beauties!!
*reminds self, patience is a virtue.*
Yellow/green rimmed pot with a lovely wooden handle.
Two medium sized yellow/green rimmed bowls.
Large yellow/green rimmed dish.
Large green oval dish pan.
Large green enamel bowl.
I also found these two very unique lovelies, that will fit into my room's 'decor quite nicely!
How very fitting for fall, yes? Of course yes! A pretty metal leaf. Carolina found it lying on my desk and asked why I had a dried leaf in our room? ;)
I plan on incorporating it into my room decorum somehow or another. Wish I had about 1,000 of them so I could litter my room with them!!
Take a peep at this gorgeous tin box! Isn't it stunning? It reminds me of something Bilbo would have in his hobbit hole, or perhaps some trinket that a medieval lady would have in her bedroom. Either way I adore it and it fits right in with my oddly themed room.
I'm going to start a new trend, instead of 'gals calling their hope chests, "Hope Chests", forget that and let's start calling them our "Treasure Chests"! For indeed, that is what they are!
