Treasures Found Along the Way
My normal habit would be to put them where I want them to go, but we (we = thggm) are painting over here. One wall at a time.
This means that it may be sometime before things can go where they belong.
I found this at a new antiques mall in Waterford, WI.
And only $5.00 at Benson Corners Antique Mall, a great place to shop!
The word tiles, vintage top, and the board book came from a newly opened St. Vincent DePaul thrift store in Waterford.
The stack of books are from the new antiques mall. I've been looking for these, so was especially happy to find them!
There I found this adorable Zells bowl. In the past it was priced nearly out of my reach. This piece was not. Of course, a deal gives this Dutch girl a particular thrill.
(In this picture you can see the walls. Most are still green, some are now freshly painted.)
Not sure where this girls is pointing, but I'd like to think I would have followed her there. (Here's hoping she is pointing to a thrift store!)
I'm getting excited to put this stuff on shelves. Maybe that wall will be painted tonight.
One of the booths in the Indiana antiques mall had great deals on silver plate. THGGM picked out eight spoons. For some reason our silverware tends to get lost around here.
And aren't those cute blue and white mugs? They are Dansk and were a mere 59 cents at St. Vincent's.
Someday, when I no longer have truck loads of young children around, I will set these out on stacks of vintage books all over my house.
And then I will have a good cry, because these wonderful days will be over.
