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!
