These thrifted items are a continuation of last weeks finds. I spent most of the week laundering the linens, ironing, washing things to look pretty, taking pictures and editing them. Needless to say when you look at all the items you'll know I truly was busy. I found the four mushroom canisters that needed a bath but once they were clean they looked nice. Two are from 1978 and two are from 1983, all made in Japan for Sears, Roebuck and Co. The orange and yellow velour towel is for our vintage bathroom which we've decorated with all orange and yellow daisy print thrifted items. The baseball fabric is truly vintage and the bright floral fabric is a king size sheet and has two matching pillow cases.
I found a very new red Wilson leather handbag, more vintage fabrics, sheets, a wooden figure that I believe may be monkey wood, a vintage mother goose receiving blanket and a few good story books.
To continue I found a vintage 1975 corning ware glass cutting board in almost pristine condition, a clean house wooden wall plaque, a couple more Pyrex bowls, floral drapes, more sheets (my daughter is always raiding my orange fabric), a yellow print sheet and Santa Clause pillow panels. Is this the end? No
This is the last group. To start there is a vintage linen table cloth that is in wonderful condition, a handful of type box size miniature made in Japan porcelain animals, a made in Japan Napco Ware baby planter, a tea bag holder that I know belongs in a set, but I got it for my cup of tea and only needed the one anyway and last but not least a vintage Ice O Matic hand crank ice crusher. Now this ice crusher may not be great to many of us, but it works on two of the settings. The red plastic cup is cracked and leaks, but usable. I may never list it on my stores, but the idea of showing this to my grandchildren when they just walk to the fridge for ice was a lot of fun. I've got some research to do on this. So far I haven't found anything similar quickly so a more in depth search may be happening soon.
I've managed to get many items listed this week so stop by my stores, butterflyplace.etsy.com and butterflyplace.storenvy.com and take a peek. I can honestly say that I am growing and having so much fun.
