Mid June Thrifted Finds

Lately I have been using my iphone to take photos and find it an amazing convenience. It seems to handle evening photos with lights on with fewer 'light dots' showing. I like being able to use the handiest camera so I can catch a fast shot. I still use my close-up camera/lens for most of my work.

This post is a mix of garage sale and church sale finds. It is more of a show, not much of a tell.

A church sale (thank you St. Andrews) had 2 White Wheat Royal Crownford Ironstone Weatherly Hanley England #89 (6 1/4" to tip of spout) and #84 (4 1/2" to tip of spout) creamers. The largest has a chip on the rim.

A vintage LIFE magazine with Marilyn Monroe on the cover backing a tall red and clear glass purse vase.

Found a faux coffee grinder, thought it was a useable one until we got it home. Tightened up the screws on the cast metal and it will be a good photo backdrop.

Two ceramic giraffe.

Cold Cast Bronze statue is of a Boharan Player, made in Ireland 2001 (5000 reproduced). It is always interesting to learn the history of a piece found.

Last weekend garage sales yielded some useful things.

A zinc plant pot holder (I added the yellow butterfly and sunshine) with drain holes, useful, shown on a vintage round mirror.

A Kirkham over sized cup and saucer and a Cre Irish Porcelain footed mug with a dragon handle.

Denmark D-2 cast iron bright yellow casserole

Scottish Dog Cookie Jar with Mickey and Goofy mugs

Delft Blue themed popular souvenirs
