Hunted:: Gathered: 07/07/12

Hello again! I had planned some extra blog posts for the week but I didn't follow through. Don't you hate it when that happens? Hopefully I'll pull them off for next week!

This week I took it easy on the thrifting because of the previous week's finds. I don't want to fall into a hoarder situation. There's a very fine line.(hehe) Instead I spent more time photographing, cleaning, and organizing some inventory to list in the shop. Most of these finds are in the shop and have been in the shop for a while but I never got around to sharing them with you. 

First is this cute Nymolle Cup and Plate set. I love the illustrations on these.

I found this nice little Rosenthal Bleikristall candy dish or votive candle-holder. I didn't know Rosenthal had a glassware line. I'm so used to seeing ceramics that it never crossed my mind.

I found this beautiful enamel on copper plate with a nice swirl pattern in the center. Surprisingly it's in great shape and the back of it is in a pale yellow enamel. 

Don't you just love the textures of Italian pottery? This one is a piece for Rosenthal Netter. I love the contrasting textures, the glossy off-white and yellow glazes with that rough dark clay.

I was happy to add this little guy to my collection. It's been a while since I've found any wooden animals so he was quite welcome in my home.

I bought this because living in the great land of California, we have plenty of oranges all around and therefore fresh-squeezed is the way we do it in my abode. I actually have a glass reamer but the boy doesn't like the pulp! This has been a lifesaver. It's compact and very handy!

Lastly, this was a piece I acquired last week with a set of knit afghans. It was love at first sight. It was from a local auction and I probably paid a bit more than I should have for the lot. What can I say, I got the auction bug. This was before I found the Hudson's Bay blankets and I wanted a striped blanket so bad that I went for it. The lady from the auction house said it was an Irish blanket or tapestry but I really have no idea. It is double-sided, it's not wool and feels a bit rough to be a blanket but too thin to be a rug. It is also twice as long as it is wide (about 54" X108"). Do any of you have any ideas? Aren't the colors great? I plan on using it as a rug for our new abode (if it actually comes through).

So what did you find this week? I'll be linking with Sophie from Her Library Adventures this week.

I've added a lot of photos on my facebook page of some of the available inventory that I have. Some items are in my item shop but others are not. If you find something that interest you please don't hesitate to ask about it!


  1. Oh the rug is totally worth being a bit spendy on. So nice.

    My boy also does not like the OJ pulp... To me that's the best part!

  2. I just love the nymolle cup and plate. The design looks like it would make for a fantastic fabric print too.

  3. That OJ thingy looks pretty cool... linda does not like the pulp either. I need to get in on the make-your-own-juice thing seeing as we're in the great land too =)

  4. That rug/blanket is SO COOL! I'm jealous. Maybe it's a wall hanging? In any case, I'm in love. :)
