May 2015 Thrifted Two

Many of you know that I am a reseller of thrifted and refurbished. Blogging friends Sue of Granny Sue and Ed of Renaissance Geek and Linda of Coastal Charm and Donna of Distressed Donna Down Home, Diana of Adirondack Girl and so many more bloggers live similarly themed busy lives while they carry on with their everyday life. 

I enjoyed Rita of Panoply's post Sunday where she and her sister totally redid their 3 booths. Booth owners/resellers can always learn something new or useful or inspiring from others who share.



I don't know what the pretty red glass ball is called but it makes a lovely accessory. Update - red gazing ball. Thanks friends.

There have been some very pretty things to find this month. My favourite may be the roses transfer ware Chippendale Johnson Bros dishes. I kept the ones with chips and stains for my own use and the best pieces went into my booth.



I was out with my son and found two signs, the LOVE sign below is on a piece of old siding (with layers of old colour). I would love to find similar pieces of wood.




Found a LODGE sign in an arrow shape at the same place.



The brass cowboy and steer and the large Coffee Hound are great vintage collectibles. The clock is a nice mid century piece.



More brass cowboy, horse and steer closeups. I was thinking this might have been a key/change tray, there is no indication that it was an ashtray. The wooden base has worn felt on the bottom and the paint is worn away in some areas. The pieces were a bit loose and are bolted onto the base and the only way to tighten them was with a very thin needle nose plier to turn the bolts.



Blue Mountain Pottery, which closed its doors on December 31, 2004 is still popular and always nice to find. These pieces are blue and black but BMP also comes in yellow/brown and red/black. Check the web site above for more colour information.The silver coloured candle holder has an elegant shape.



I often feel like I am writing a show and tell post when I share thrifted finds. Then I remember Donna and Sue and Linda and ... how much I enjoy seeing what they have found.


Thank you for visiting.

  9. The red ball is a gazing ball for gardens to reflect the sky, blooms and anything else caught in the magic it projects. I'd love to have one but am afraid the raccoons would smash it by playing with it.
    I always wonder about the blue mountain pottery, it's an old collectible but I like my two pieces.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Joy.

  10. The Gazing Ball ( or often called Fairy Ball) has been used for a very long time in gardens and yards. Back when the superstitious folks believed it to trap evil spirits and keep them safe. It was given as gifts in Victorian times, and were often called Friendship Balls.

    Nice treasures you found this time! GL in selling them! I wish you the very best.
