I had to really dig this week to come up with a few treasures... ( this tiny silver shovel is a wee 3 inches!)
But first... I found this blue metal parts shelf last fall before we closed up the lake house for the winter....and I found it again last month when we opened the place up. After this picture was taken... I cleaned it up and am now using it to hold crafty supplies on the porch...
Here are twelve vintage red tulip embroidered linen napkins...stitched together... ...I don't think they were ever used... ... and a few lace doilies that I found at the local thrift store.
...also, this graceful plated candelabra, a pretty blue Leotric mason jar and a tin funnel.
...clean and starched doily snowflakes
The keys to my heart.
Vintage crochet trims... Silver Bella?
...an old store price or sign holder? ...maybe I can use it for an old photo or art piece display or to hold a recipe card...
I can never pass up an old velvet box....with satin lining no less.. ...not sure what it held originally... A music holder to be creatively adapted and a vintage magnifying glass...
Loved the graphics on this old cleanser can...
Isn't this the sweetest little butter pat ever? I had to adopt it.
And here is the Whatsit...
1. Can you guess was it used for?
2. What would you use it for now?
...and those are my slim pickings for this week.... Tomorrow is the big annual rummage sale that we all look forward to each year... ... I wonder what is to be had there this year... I will report back promptly!
Have a good night... We are headed out to Beef and Burgundy at the local Inn... ...and tomorrow family and friends start arriving! :) :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
