So I'm sure you know that I didn't just get the fabric and the fabulous milk glass on my last thrift-o-spree right? Of course. One thing I went looking for were a few Easter decorations.
I can't help it but I love that bunny basket. I think he was $3 and totally worth it. Not sure what I'll do with him yet, perhaps make him the grand centerpiece? What should go in him? The possibilities are endless. :) The other basket is that thin papery wood, balsa perhaps, of all cheap Easter baskets but that's soft chenille wound in with it. Not sure if this is old or not but it's pretty cute. I was intending it as my niece's basket but might be greedy and keep it for myself. The bag inside are the nice ribbon scraps I mentioned the other day. In the front there are some handmade Easter things that were all in a bag together for $2. The pink bunny and little chick are my favorite and are made from pom poms and walnut shells.
Does anyone else remember walnut crafts? LOL These two will find a place on my Easter Tree that I hope to get out this weekend.
Now I know I've seen that house wife cheese grater somewhere else before. I had to snatch her up even though I can't for the life of me remember the last time I even used a cheese grater. The salt and pepper shakers say Japan on the bottom and still have their rubber stoppers. In fact they still had salt and pepper in them. Yuck. The basket is one for silverware and napkins and should get some use at Easter brunch and the pot is Dansk enamelware. It goes perfectly with my Le Creuset:
I paid $8 for the Dansk pot and $7 for that yellow Le Creuset in the middle there. I won't tell you how much that bouillabaisse pot on the bottom was but it weighs about 25 pounds and still gets tons of use. I guess I'm a bit of an enamelware lover.
How funny that inanimate objects can bring use such joy. :) And just looking at my treasures again has given me the taste for the hunt. Bring on the weekend!
