We hit the thrift stores yesterday. I found this old marble table for 12.00. It weighs around 50 pounds. I have no idea what I am going to do with it but the marble alone makes this worthwhile.
I found this old lazy susan which will be transformed into something much more usable. It was 2.00. And this plain but well built small table painted a mustard color...6.00.
A branch of copper maple leaves (they are real copper) was 99 cents.
This is a really sweet little incense cottage.
You place a cone of incense inside and the smoke comes out of the chimney on top. I always burn incense when I work in the garden to ward off insects. It smells good and there are no bugs. I usually burn pine scented incense. Oh, this cost 1.99.
I found yet another cheese dome/cloche. $1.50 These sure will be useful in my spring garden when we still have cool nights.
A cute little cornucopia tile for 69 cents.
And this was too strange. I found the first tulipiere in one store and then found the second one in a different store. I never see these anywhere and then I find two on the same day in two different stores. 1.99 for one and 2.99 for the other. Tulipieres were popular during the victorian period. They are vases for individual stems of flowers. When filled they look like big bouquet. I will buy some flowers and fill it in the next few days and post it on here so you can see it.
You could place another vase in the center for a layered effect.
This one is identical to the other except it has a removable center piece.
I bought this for my garden shelves. It has a switch and when turned on the windows light up. 99 cents.
A brand new pair of leather braces(suspenders) 1.99
And a brand new straw cowboy hat for 1.00. Can anyone guess what I am going to make with these two items?
This was my big find. A Roseville cauldron for 14.95. But since it was Wednesday everything was half off. So, 7.50. I have been collecting these for years and never paid less than 35.00 for one this size. And I have never found them anywhere other than ebay.
Someone was not quite awake this morning.
Oops....eyes open. Her winter coat is about to start growing back. This is her svelte look.
Hey, remember the little table from the beginning of the post? It makes a nice little shelf for the birdhouse on my potting table and adds a whole new dimension to it. Not bad for 6.00! The cornucopia tile is in the cage.
The translation from yesterday's spice rack is roughly:
"The best thing you can have on earth is freedom and good court."
What the hell does that mean?
