February Thrifted Treasures

February Finds - Thrifted 

My favorite thing is my frame covered in a piece of light cloth that I use as a backdrop for many vignettes.

Hints of April with this bright yellow little chick and egg cup.

The bottle pictures were changed to black and white, used the same backdrop in all the pictures in this post.

Copper pieces found in early February.

Liniment bottle with original contents.

One piece and handles on a rod rolling pins.

Daylight and time of day sure makes a difference when taking pictures.
Above is evening, below is daylight.

A very sweet Mother's Day framed poem and a Fire King Snoopy mug.
 Little pots for melted butter.

Used my 'frame with cloth' backdrop in several of my collages. Its been very handy. I need to find another neutral piece of fabric and make a larger backdrop/frame. I picked up some white bristol board toward my goal make a simple white box for totally neutral photos of small items. More bits and pieces to gather before I 'build'. Continuing to gathering ideas from other bloggers on making light boxes. Check out The Clueless Thrifter: Oh, How I Love Thee Vinal Backdrops and Setting Up Vinal Backdrops which she bought from Swanky Prints on Etsy. Great ideas for backdrops and base areas.


  1. Wow, lots of great finds. I am a sucker for egg cups.

  2. That little chickie reminds me of being a child and visiting those stores and seeing all the new little chickens in pens. What were those stores? Oh yeah, feed stores I think. Their feathers were so soft.

  3. I love the little chick and egg cup.

    and your photography is beautiful!

  5. Joy I love the idea of a framed 'backdrop'! Great idea! I'm going to do that for sure. You take great photos. That little figural egg cup is adorable.

  6. My mother's house was filled with "what nots". That's what she called them. When she died, several of them came to me. Each time I notice one on the mantle, or on my desk, they remind me of her.

  7. The copper crab just stole my heart!

    Popped in from Pink Saturday.

  8. Love the vintage! Found you on A Favorite Thing and I would love to have you share this on The Creative HomeAcre Hop today!

  9. That's a smart idea, Joy. I have a couple of pieces of foam board that I use for Etsy shots. I think having a consistent backdrop is a great way to showcase your finds.
