Thrift store treasures - crib boards, a carved folding book holder, a Libbey mid-century condiment set, Beauford mugs, napkin holder and long handled spring loader tea leaf holder.
Love finding anything brass that shows age, rarely polish, just wash and rub dry.
Birds Eye Candle Holders, an Enesco Posy Holder Skunk (I love the painting in the background).
The color drew me to these hard cover books. They are German novels in good condition. Use this picture as the background for playing solitaire.
A hint of camping memories, still have our original propane camp stove and coffee pot (not this one) in my shed, tents have been given away, too hard to get up from the ground.
This is such a cheerful catterpiller planter, the yellow and brown ceramic is a wall pocket, behind is a Tree of Life Sadler Tea Caddy, a green footed goblet and a mid-century butter dish, Sunflower pattern.
Cast iron well used, some red paint left on a trivet and a small set of salt and pepper chickens and a chicken spoon holder in a small grouping.
January's Thrift, Polish and Share Project
Wanted to paint this little stool/plant holder for some time (yes, thrifted). It was beginning to look scruffy.
Here is the before:
Painted the stool with 2 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint Lamp White. Next up was adding a stencil to the top of the small plant stand. I used two words from my new garden stencil - Flower / Pots
This is my first use of the garden stencil from Muddaritaville - and when I find a board wide enough I will try out the entire stencil. Used CeCe Caldwell Beckley Coal for the lettering.
Added Fusion Tough Coat Sealer Clear finish (2 coats) after a very light sanding.
Always a treat to have an elf visit and a Royal Winton Spring Flowers plate for a background.
Thank you for visiting today.
