Since today is the last day of 2010, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite finds of the year...
I found these forest green shakers somewhere in
Tennessee on the Longest Yard Sale….they are Owens . The ceramic pig salt and pepper shakers are just too cute, but I haven’t been able to find out anything about them…no marks. Do you know? Illinois
This cloche is a favorite because it’s the first one I’ve been able to afford! I found it at a local thrift store.
Another thrift store find is this mercury glass bud vase. I tried to get a better pic but couldn’t. I love it because there is etching on the glass…..some damage to the mirroring inside just adds to its appeal.
I found a tattered roll of this vintage Cleo Santa wrapping paper only a few days ago. You’ll be sure to see this next Christmas…..I just don’t know yet how I’ll use it!
My very favorite find is this vintage cobalt blue Fiesta tumbler. It’s my favorite because I saw this very same tumbler at an estate sale and I didn’t buy it because I thought the price was too high. A few days later I walked into the Salvation Army thrift store and bought it for $1.99. I know it was the same tumbler because it still had the estate sale price sticker on it!!!
My last favorite is quite appropriate for New Year’s Eve…….it’s a vintage noisemaker made by U.S. Metal Toy Mfg. Co! Oh, yes……it still makes a lot of noise!
Happy New Year!
