Hey lovely readers, I've had quite a week so I'm sorry for not getting back to some of your comments and messages but I will, promise.
I did want to share some of my latest finds. Luckily I photographed these last week so I have something to share.
I found this little mod candle-holder tucked away at an estate sale. Unfortunately I missed what seemed to be great finds on the first day of the sale because of work but I did manage to pick up a few things. The individual teak pieces swivel. They are also made in Denmark but I've been unable to find the designer.
Also tucked away in some boxes outside was this cute little needlepoint purse. The things I picked up weren't priced so I worried when I went to the register but the lovely lady gave them to me for a song. Phew!
The estate was pretty amazing, it was a custom built mid-century post and beam home by a local architect. Since I am looking for a home, I was curious about the property but I learned it won't be coming up for sale for a few months (hopefully). It is a modest sized home but for the most part was in great condition.
I saved a copy of one of the preview images for the sale to see if anyone could help id one of the pieces I wanted. It's the white spherical ceramic container. Anyone know what it is?
At another estate sale I found my first Swedish Dala horse. This one measures in at 8.5"! The dansk spider candle-holder was from a local thrift and was manufactured in Denmark.
I'm still debating about this find. I was excited because it is a vintage Dansk ice bucket with the four ducks logo on the bottom BUT it is missing the lid. I asked a couple of employees if they would look in the back and none of them would. I went back to see if it popped up but I had no luck. What do you think, was it a good buy?
Lastly, I am really excited about these finds. These Iittala Festivo candlesticks have six rings and add to my collection. The largest one I had prior to these has 5 rings. They have a vintage sticker and are marked with Timo Sarpaneva's initials on the bottom. This estate had a lot of good furniture that I missed out on. There was a family of 5 that took the tags off of all of the teak furniture...drat! They did miss these candlesticks though.
How was your week? I'll be linking up with Selena and Sophie.
