Oh dear, I am glad my thrifting went better than my picture-taking this week.
Today was a cloudy, grey day not at all good for taking pictures of my treasures. Then when I finally rigged up a kind of light, my camera battery died.
I did manage to get a few shots of some of my treasures. Not all of them, but a nice sampling.
I am cheating including the pillow in the background. It was a thrifty find, but I found it months ago. I thought it added some needed colour. Can you see the trend? More red! I just about knocked some poor man over when I spied the red metal tub. Got it for $5.00 and it still had a price tag on the bottom from Pottery Barn – $59.00 ! Score!
OK I will cool it with the exclamation marks. I plan to fill it with balls of wool by my knitting chair.
The two little tins are sweet. Sorry about the glare, I will get better at these photo shoots. The red one says Jacksons of Piccadilly Tea. I plan to keep tea in it … the other one is just too cute and was 50 cents, maybe good for little sewing things.
Not much better. I was very happy to find a copy of A Traveller in Romance Uncollected Writings 1901 – 1964 by W. Somerset Maugham. I am a huge Maugham fan and there are not many I don’t have. I also picked up a couple of other books, a novel that looks good, and a Company’s Coming cookbook – Stews, Chilies and Chowders. They always have good recipes and I have several bookmarked to try this weekend. Porcupine Meatball Stew anyone?
This is really the one I am most excited about.
I found a cute little wooden box I hope to rehab a bit and a shelf I will use to display some goodies, and some more cutlery, but sadly no pictures. Maybe next week!
