Friday Thrifty Treasures never got off the ground last Friday due to circumstances beyond my control but it’s back this week.
Now let me show you what I’ve found lately.
My heart went pitter patter when I saw this little Tiffany styled lamp. It isn’t marked so I’m not sure how old it is. I had a similar one back in the 1970’s so it’s probably from that time frame. I may use it as a night-light in my sun room but it may go to the booth. It’s still up in the air.
You’ve seen a green McCoy planter like this one here at the Blue Willow House before.
I found one like it earlier this year in TTT Week 31 Vintage Finds. It is possible that the two will appear together in a Christmas vignette with one going to the booth in the new year.
Do you remember your mom and her friends playing Bridge on card tables? When I saw this pristine white square tablecloth with four napkins still in its original packaging I remembered that era back in the 1960’s. It has very pretty yellow embroidered flowers and edging. It is lovely and I am hoping to find it a new home.
When I found this Boyds Farm wagon the front wheels and axle were not attached. After a bit of repair work it is good as new and absolutely adorable. Since Boyds still sells a version of this wagon it probably isn’t very old but will make a charming display piece in the booth until it sells.
A bag of assorted pumpkins caught my eye and for less than $2 I got six. Two of the pumpkins are grapevine, one fabric, 3 are thin wood strips dyed orange. They aren’t vintage but definitely thrifty.
I’ve admired the blue and white French mustard pots for a while so when I found two at an excellent price there was no passing them by. These charming vintage mustard pots held famous Grey Poupon mustard from Dijon France.
The glazed ceramic pots have a transferware design featuring a French crown and Fleur de Lys in blue. The bottom of the little pots have the Digoin Sarreguemines maker’s marks.
You know ironstone always garners my attention. Well with two small pieces sitting together I had to check them out. One is a gravy boat and the other an open sugar bowl. They are Harmony House Federalist made in Japan. The sugar bowl is going to the booth and I’m going to use the gravy boat for a while.
One of my favorite thrift stores is kind of messy. I have to be in the right mood to go there but it usually doesn’t disappoint. Monday is half price day and my favorite time to go there. When I was there recently I spied a well used bushel basket. Wouldn’t it be perfect to hold a big old Christmas tree (the kind I don’t have any more) but it looks just as good filled with a bunch of pumpkins. This basket booth bound when I start Christmas decorating there.
Don’t forget there is still time to link up your vintage posts at Vintage Charm until Monday November 2nd. at 8:00 am EST.
