Thrifted Finds

One Classy Craft Event with a bit of classy vintage was only collecting opportunity this week. Men in full kilt regalia were the greeters and the  many tables of hand crafts and baking were manned by welcoming and cheerful ladies, a very pleasant visit.

A blooming cactus and some tarnished silver/plate are from my earlier collectibles.

Cake plate on plaid - the footed glass cake plate and silverplated salad servers are two of the weekend finds.

Satin glass footed console bowl - who could resist, another Classy weekend find

Ironstone tureen - deep breath here - it was on a bottom shelf at the back - just waiting for me.

Vintage School Rulers and Wrench were found a few weeks ago, hard to let old rulers leave my house.

I painted shutters this week and the dark blue bird decorations 'sort of' clipped on. The bread board 'boot' got a stencilled addition of a coffee/tea/hot chocolate cup with some steam. The brown ash tray (vintage) is usually found on a floor standing ash tray.

Bone handled knives and rather sweet and somewhat handsome face decanter - looks a bit like a tree, surrounded by bone handled knives.

Bossons  that need a bit of TLC, a Mexican Hat and a non working vintage GE Radio are the end of this weeks finds.

Thanks for visiting.
