Thrifty Finds – Nov 2

I haven’t done a thrifty finds post in a while.  Thought I would show you a few finds.

This beauty is a Marwal Chalkware Polynesian beauty.  I listed is on Wednesday, and she sold on Thursday to a wonderful customer in Australia.  She really is a beauty.

I like train cases. Or do you call them a makeup case, overnight case or even a travel case?  Anyway I like them, and this one has character.

I really like the gold design of this Pyrex large mixing bowl.  I still haven’t researched the name of the pattern yet.  I normally don’t like gold, but this one is pretty.

I was thrilled to find this Spaulding Indian Club in a box of wood I won at an auction.  I think it would be a great piece for rustic decor.

Isn’t this Holiday thermos fun?  It isn’t as large as most thermos bottles, but what I like is that color.  It also has “holiday” on it.  I have it listed, but you can be sure it will be part of my Christmas decor if it doesn’t sell.

Since I mentioned the holidays, I had to show you this Mrs. Santa apron.  I think it is adorable; any one playing Mrs. Claus would love it.  It is quilted on the bottom.  Some day I will try quilt again.  I pieced one wall hanging together when I was pregnant with my youngest who is now 13.  That was as far as I got. Just not enough time.

Finally had to show you this large basket.  It is galvanized steel., and it is rusted.  What I love is the rope handles.  I can see it as a display piece tipped on its side. Maybe a blanket coming out of it and then fall flowers and pumpkins.  If nothing else it will make a great flower-pot since it has pin holes in the bottom.

With fall here, are you finding any good thrifted items?

    • Thanks, Laura. I appreciate that you read my blog to see what I find. Yes, she was a beauty. I really hope she makes it to Australia in one piece. It would be sad to have her break.

I love hearing your thoughts, please leave a comment.
