August Thrifted Finds

It was lovely to take a blog writing break while on holiday. I did read posts to keep up with my blogging friends.

Found a few thrifted treasures this month.

A lovely Price-Kensington teapot

Melmac jug, green handled kitchen tools and vintage bottles.

A bit of collector humour.

Only painting I did was CeCe Caldwell Simply White on a pair of brown curtain rods and touch ups on an ornate frame. Not photo worthy but the paint helped the rods disappear into the background.

When not travelling it was garden watering, clean up, hauling old fence boards to the transfer station, more watering. Visited friends and family, got some small 'in the house' jobs caught up.

Thanks for visiting.
