Thrifty Finds, Dec 19

Thrifting in this part of the country really slows down as the weather gets cold. No auctions or garage sales which is where I find most of my items.  I have hit a thrift store or two each week, but that is just not where I find my interesting pieces most of the time.  So today I am showing a few more items I found in boxes as I am organizing my holding area.

I thought this chicken waterer was so fun.  I grew up on a farm with chickens.  We had larger ones because we had quite a few chickens.  This one is made of a tin base and a coffee jar.  I have had this one listed in my Shop.

I love the look of old toasters.  I sold the one I had at my fall garage sale so when I found one in a box lot, I was happy.

I thought this meat tenderizer was so cool. It is old but never was used.  The red handle is so fun, and so are the graphics on the paper.

I really thought this chair is so cute.  It is a child’s chair.  I know turquoise is popular, but changing out the seat cover would make it so fun.  I have this at Traveling Trunk.

I loved the color of this sugar and creamer set.  Yesterday I just heard what color Pantone has selected as the color for 2012, Tangerine Tango

Hmmm, pretty close.  I knew that the color would be a peach/orange color.  Turquoise was the color of the year two years ago.  About 25 years ago the color was also turquoise and then a couple of years later it was peach.  (I know because my bridesmaid dresses were peach in 1990.) Trends are always repeating themselves.  This year my nieces bridesmaid dresses were Turquoise, so I had a feeling.  So yes, Tangerine is suppose to be the “in” color.  What do you think?  Do you like Tangerine?
