May 2015 Thrifted Finds One

I love the spring and summer bounty of garage, community and church sales. I love talking to people who share the history of items, watching the little kids find new to them toys and seeing families add something to their homes at a reasonable cost. 

The coffee pot was a good find today. It had been well used for outdoor cooking and took some time to clean.



The flower frog/vase is old and the chip happened a long time ago. It is so charming.


Blue Mountain Pottery is always nice to find. The vase is 13 1/2" tall and the bird wing spread is 14".


The heavy red glasses are likely mid-century.


Kitchen Ware catches my attention at garage sales. The turquoise tea canister is mid century and had a bit of oatmeal inside. Stove top popcorn makers are always fun to find. 




Thanks for visiting. 
More signs coming soon.

  13. I look at my 2 pieces of blue mountain pottery and wonder if it will ever become popular again. A friend had a huge collection that she sold when they downsized their home. Gee, I have the same waffle cheese/veggie slicer in my kitchen drawer. :-)
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Joy.
