Hey all, in case you haven't noticed, I'm running a bit late this week. I had a couple of nice finds this week but nothing like some of my fellow thrifters. I did a couple of my usual loops but my mind is cluttered with things I need to do so my junkin' heart has not been at ease. Now that I've started listing things on Etsy I've realized how much I need to list... and it's a lot! I also find myself not picking up some of the things I normally would, for instance I passed on a nice dish set by Thomas of Germany in the Arcta pattern. It's still nagging me and if it's still around this week I may just pick it up, but the thought of picking up more dishes kind of drains me.
On a positive note, I had what I consider to be a good week on Etsy. Sure the things I sold were small, but it felt nice. I'm going to try to devise a system of photographing, editing, listing, etc. so that I'm a bit more efficient 'cause otherwise it takes so much time! Any experienced sellers wanna share some quick tips?
Alright, so on to my finds:
I like to call this selection sea and sand. A few nice blue hues paired with some earthy tones. From left to right is a Pottery Craft vase, a UCTCI vase (i think), and a lone Heath cup. I don't usually like to pick up lone cups but the color was too pretty!
There was just something about this planter. It is a Takahashi wall hanging planter but I loved the hanging cord and the overall feel of this piece.
What's not to love about this little doggie paper sorter? I've come across these before but in black, I couldn't resist this brassy one.
My heart nearly stopped when I saw this piece. I missed out on one at a recent estate sale and although I think this is a repro (it's marked Taiwan), it's still awesome and heavy as all heck! These pieces are often attributed to George Nelson but it appears that the designer of this piece is more than likely Bill Curry for design-line.
Lastly, I had to pick up these pieces of fabric. I try to stay away from this because I don't sew but these proved to be too fun to pass up. The one on the left has a great gold print onto a rich purple and I already have DIY's in mind for it. The center one has a great pattern and vibrant colors for summer. The one on the right also got me with the colors, just so fun!
I have some catching up to do in another blog post about some Liebster awards (don't worry, I haven't forgotten) so stay tuned this week for my passing of the baton to 5 lucky bloggers!
I'll be linking up with the lovely ladies Sophie and Selena.
