This week's post is a little late due to the excitement of Mike being in the studio recording his albums for which he needed the van to haul gear which means we can't haul treasures over the weekend.
But here we are, Gwyn and I found treasures after all!
I had been keeping my eyes open for one of these spool organizers and I found one for only a couple dollars. Most of these spools of colourful thread were also thrift finds, many of them are on wooden spools (my favorite) and are 100% cotton and silk.
This lovely small red enamel sauce pot, made in Yugoslavia, caught my eye but it was stained and burnt on the the inside so we found a different purpose for it with some new bushy succulents
and a few new tea cups for my growing cacti collection
I finally read about someone who gets as excited about simple cactus things as I do at The Dainty Squid!
At first I thought this funny thing was a red metronome ... but at a closer inspection I found out it was a crazy folding gooseneck lamp that works! These type of lamps always make me think of appliances coming alive ... isn't that a cartoon somewhere?
and a sweet electric clock with a great shape and a shiny faux bois shell.
Well, happy treasures this week!
