This “green house” is one of my favorite finds of the day. In fact, it’s sitting in the center of my kitchen table right now; it makes me so happy (cost: $3).
I’ve been familiar with Georges Britard, a mid-century designer, for quite a while. You may have seen some of his pieces of decorated glass–often flat, with gold decoration, and his signature. This tray is made of hard plastic with a tile center, and I bought it in the original box.
More Pyrex! Decorated in the Old Town Blue pattern, the creamer is marked “Corning,” the creamer, “Pyrex.” Corning manufactured Pyrex until 1998, but I think it’s interesting that they have different marks (cost: 25 cents, value: $10). In the center stands a new version of an old Real Lemon juice jug (1 quart size), manufactured by Anchor Hocking (cost: 50 cents, value: $5). It’s a keeper, though. The collectibles rest on a one yard piece of old toweling (cost: 50 cents, value:$4). (Pyrex Love Pattern Guide)
I’m pretty much in love with the pearl bracelet (cost: $1, value: $15), but I can’t keep everything, can I? I always scoop up insect pins, especially bees (cost: 50 cents, value: $10). The rhinestone clip-ons were cheap, cheap, cheap (cost: 25 cents each, value: $6-8 each). I’m collecting them to make bracelets some day.
Old minnow buckets make great planters (cost: $1, value: $10).
Hard to pass up pretty birds (cost: 75 cents for six prints).
Bye for now,
Linking up with these great parties:
