I posted some pictures of these thrift treasures a little while ago. I wanted to show you what I had done with each of them.
This tureen is sitting on our dining table. I still haven't decided what I will do with it. I would love any fun suggestions. For now I am enjoying it's simple beauty.
This cloche is filled with shells, some from the thrift and some from our collection, and is sitting atop our coffee table.
This is a jar I found at Michaels and fell in love with it right away. I filled it with some more shells. Next to it is a pair of ladies leather gloves from an antique store that I loved but it closed down. They are the smallest gloves I've seen, for very thin hands. On the other side is a great bobbin that I found on a trip to Pennsylvania. I have to add some lace to it. Or do you have a better idea to share? I would love to hear them.
On the other side is another jar filled with sea glass. This is all from our collection. Most of it coming from a little seaside town we love, Little Compton. Such a beautiful place with wide open spaces and beaches. Behind the jar I have some little books I have collected, some old, some new.
This great shell is a thrift treasure. It is from a local beach but I did not find it, on the shore at least. I did find it at the thrift and was happy to bring it home. Below it are some more books from my collection, old and new.I hope you have enjoyed these treasures. I know I have been thrilled that I found them and could bring them home.
