May 2019 Thrifts and a Stencilled Sign

Another sign made with a stencil - fun, quick and just right for summer travel.

This week has been a 'let's take a look in the drawers in the workshop' - and in my 'drawer that used to hold my sewing supplies' were a few very old well used vintage+ thimbles.

Another great church sale this month, my favourite one to visit - just a mile or so from our home. Squirrels are Blue Mountain Pottery.

And then there was Vintage Saturday sale - favourite finds - vintage kitchenware, wooden handled brass chamber candle holders

Mid-century footed copper comport, small dachshund, crib board, letter holder, rolling pin and tart pan (plus a small Dutch carved shoe).

Another 'sort out the workshop' unearthed a wreath shaped wire I had fallen in love with years ago, some well used clothes pins, a butter press and a sad iron plus a handle that didn't fit that shape (below, on the wooden ironing board).

What sign did I make this week?


A narrow  cutting board
Beckley Coal chalk like paint and my fav. brush
clear wax and a clean rag
masking tape, newspaper
stencil by Muddaritaville Studios 

A sign to fit into a small space - just like the small trailer.

Thanks for visiting today my friends.
