January 2020 Thrifts

January, a month of early dark becoming later a few minutes each day, a great deal of rain, sometimes blue skies and sunshine and a week of snow, shovelling. 

Quiet on the 'finding vintage' front.  Turned out hidden treasures from the backs of cupboards, checked out boxes with layers of dust.

Looking forward to spring colours.

Noritake cake plate, Royal Winton candle holder and an antique etched butterfly and leaves on a cruet. 

Evening grouping - brass letter holder with sword letter opener, Elegance candle holders and a bit of humour - CWTCH (in Welsh) means to cuddle.

Syroco openwork tray with pine cones and branches. The Life of Charlotte Bronte by Mrs. Gaskell closed with a ribbon and wax.


Valentines Day is just a couple of weeks away - ping pong paddles wooden heart and vintage framed foil rose bouquet, romance and sports.

Thank you for visiting today




  1. I love seeing all your pretty things! Spring is coming! I also enjoy seeing what you see on your walks on Facebook. Hope you find more fabulous things in February!

  2. Some neat stuff! But I am crazy about what looks like an embossed pattern on white tin in the upper left of the collage with the teacup and saucer. Love it. Could it be from an old tin ceiling?

    It's pretty cold and dreary still here in Michigan. Spring seems a loooong way off. I don't mind the cold so much if there is sun, but that is rare in Winter in this area. The "lake effect" they say.

    Thanks for sharing your great collection of treasures.

  3. Sweet stuff! Well, the letter opener looks more dangerous than sweet--LOL! ;)

  4. Love your finds, Joy! Here's to putting January to bed....finally, and on to a fabulous February.


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
