thrifting

as you know, i went on a little thrifting jaunt last week, and i picked up loads of goodies. i found a few more things for my booth {as well as some lovely things to have around the house}.

i found this great egg basket {a bit of a splurge, but i couldn’t resist!}, which i think will be a great place to store & display those handmade jewelry boxes. i may give it a coat or two of clear sealant so it doesn’t get any rust on the boxes, but otherwise i think it’s just perfect with its years of wear.

i picked up a few more silver trays and doilies. i really want to make something like this or this with all those doilies {the collection is getting pretty big}, if i can find the time.

and i couldn’t resist this old crate–i’ll use it to add height to my table display and tote things around to shows–because of its dovetail corners and the fact that it once contained explosives. {you know me, i love it when something has a story behind it.}

for our kitchen, i snagged this pyrex bowl in perfect condition for only $2. maybe it’s not even vintage, but it looks cute and will add nicely to my small pyrex collection.

when i saw these bright, cheery enamel bowls, i had to bring ’em home. i’ve been having a thing for enameled aluminum lately, which started with the perfect mug for the hubby’s shaving soap. wouldn’t these make the best play mixing bowls for a kids’ kitchen? {now all i need are the kids!} and how about that cherry red cast iron trivet? at $3 it just jumped into my hands. i’ll fix it up with some little rubber bumpers, now long gone, to keep its feet from scratching.

what have you scored lately?
