Findings

Here’s a bit of what I’ve found on my thrifting ventures lately:

P1080491White Stoneware pitchers.  (sorry about all the blotches on the pictures.  Must be something on my camera lens?!) This is my very favorite shape of white pitchers, and not that readily found too often.  Let alone finding ALL THREE at the same time.  I’ve always wanted to start my own white pitcher collection, but always convince myself to sell everything I find.  This time I decided to keep them!  And I discovered that I had one more, a smaller one, in one of my booths to add to my collection!

P1080492Little glass spice bottle (I put a Halloween label on it) A tall funky heart shaped bottle (will be made into a ‘love potion’ bottle for Valentines Day) and a bell shaped cloche.  (always need these!)

P1080533The bottle on the left is the one from the previous pic.

P1080493

Cute dog figurine (NO idea what to do with it!?!)  Little urn (to fill with a little nest or bottle brush tree or use as a dessert plate pedestal) small glass (to use for a cupcake stand base) and a salt shaker (to use as a pedestal for a little bird)

P1080494This is the little white bird that I want to put on the previous salt shaker.  The bird is also a salt shaker though, so I have to figure out a way to cover up the holes).  Little ceramic bird (maybe paint it black for Halloween??)

5.21.13 finds signs projects 032It’s the same bird as the one on the left here; that I painted white and used as a cloche handle.

P1080495Stoneware bowls (ALWAYS on my ‘look for’ list; any shade of white/cream)  Little stoneware crock that I added a Halloween label to.

P1080496Large hurricane vase that I inverted and added a knob to, to make it into a cloche.

P1080498BIG lettuce shaped salad bowl!  

P1080500

 

Such a cute little set of milk glass jars with wicker carrier.  Any one know what this might have originally been used for??  Debating whether or not to ‘piece it out’ and sell bottles and carries individually; or leave it as a set???  What do you think?  One of the lids was GLUED on to the base, which we (the cashier and I) both noticed at checkout.  I decided to get it anyway.  Soaked it in warm soapy water for a while and it came right apart and the glue peeled right off.

P1080499Such cute ‘pot belly’ shaped jars!

P1080503Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!  That bell cloche fits this angle candle pedestal perfectly!  Maybe paint the pedestal white and pair them up??

P1080504Itty bitty angels; super fragile; might have to glue them in a glass jar to protect them.

P1080506These apothecary jars originally had brushed aluminum lids; which I spray painted black.  Will add some collage labels to these.

P1070115

Here are some similar jars I did a while back; embellished with keys and papers.

P1080507A big vintage cherub vase.

P1080509Upcycled / repurposed it into a tall cake pedestal.

P1080515

 With faux display cake.

My digital camera DIED!

Well, not really the CAMERA, but the battery!  And it’s a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally OLD digital and the batteries are almost as much as a new camera!  Told myself the last time I bought a new battery for it, that the NEXT TIME, I was buying a new one.  ACK!!!  I just HATE shopping for electronic stuff.  TOO many options these days.  Suggestions anyone????  I use my camera a LOT, probably 200 pictures a week!  

LOTS of new furniture in my booth at Stars this week!

The bottom of this stack is a set of three tables.  (I will do a separate post on those in a bit)

This little cutie is SO Paris chic!  The big heart shaped bird-cage is new too.

This vintage wicker shelf is a little bit ‘greener’ than my signature beachy blue paint.  And the heart birdcage is bluer.  But it still really ‘works together’.  That’s what I love about this color.  You really DON’T have to perfectly match it!

I moved this little cubby full of crowns over from my wall space.  I’ve had these crowns in my booth for ages, (scattered here and there) and never sold a one.  FINALLY got around to displaying them in a group and the ARE selling!

Sweet small white desk

Vintage cane back chair with NEW cushion and seat.

Some pillows on the chair.

A couple of bigger (2 stacked on top of each other here) corner shelves.

Smaller corner shelf and little shelf with drawer.

Just lowered the price of this GINORMOUS lantern to $119.00!  (WAS $189.00!!)  Originally I had 2 of these.  This one and a smaller one.  Really wanted to KEEP just as display pieces.  So many cute little vignette ideas for inside them.  But the smaller one sold, and it’s just not the same with only one in the booth.  But ONE is just right for a beautiful candle display in someone’s home!

Moved the Dessert Buffet display over to my wall space.

ALL kinds of cake/dessert pedestals!

 

Single cake stands with cloche tops.

Two and three tier dessert stands too!

Lots of vintage small white dessert plates.

And OF COURSE, a little faux wedding cake!  (not for sale, sorry!  But the BIRD cake toppers ARE for sale in my etsy shop!
