There hasn't been much time for thrifting lately but I did manage a quick trip through The Bins and found a few things. The white necklace display stand was undamaged but quite dirty so I painted it gunmetal gray and gave it a second chance. I had absolutely no reason to buy a crow or a baggie of golf tees but it seemed like a good idea at the time - LOL.
One cookie cutter is missing from this vintage set but close enough! I adore the graphics on the box.
These old die-cuts are on a card that is marked Dec. '42. It amazes me when something like this survives the stirring and digging frenzy at The Bins.
A wooden hanger and a set of tiny salt and peppers for my collection. How appropriate to find this hanger during the poinsettia season!
Here is a close-up shot of the pretty gold edge on this velvet-lined box. It has seen better days, for sure, but that makes it perfectly patina-ed (is that a word??) in my eyes.
Plus a few recent buttons. These are not from The Bins, they are from Nina and Joe's. Notice the quarter I added for scale. These are all LARGE buttons. The black glass one was missing the shank but I was able to repair it with a tiny eye-hook, good as new!
This holiday season has been overshadowed with family drama, a tragic loss and an intense project at the big-girl job but I did finally manage to get some decorating done last weekend. I will attempt to take some photos in my very low-light living room so I can share in the next post.
Hope you are doing something fun today!!
