I found this sifter from the 1940s at one of my favorite thrift stores. I love the little ducks (geese?) and the colors. It's still in good shape for being so old and the handle is easier to operate than my old sifter with a crank in my kitchen.
My mom found two of these adorable rooster gratin dishes at a Salvation Army I almost never have luck at. Apparently she's my lucky charm. Now I just have to hope I can pry them out of my mom's hands to put them in my booth!
This painting isn't the type of thing I normally get, but after leaving the store, I kept thinking of it and eventually returned to buy it. It's a pretty old oil painting on wood of "Ledy and His Excelenc Georg Washington." Yes, spelled like that. I've tried researching it and have finally discovered it's a copy of the Fraktur style paintings done in the late 18th Century. But now I'm stuck. I'm pretty sure it was done before the 1930s-1940s, but I'm just guessing based on the certificate of authenticity on the back. If anyone has any information about this painting, I would greatly appreciate it!
After finding a few great deals at the thrift stores, I was pretty disappointed in every estate sale I visited. Everything was really over-priced. I managed to find a few things, but ended up paying a little more than I would have liked.
This yellow nut/candy dish was one the only good deals I found. It was covered with an ugly, dirty paper doily, so it was priced pretty low. I snatched it up after peeking under the doily, and with a little cleaning, it looks great again! By the way, what are these things actually called? I have no idea if I'm referring to it correctly.
Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I'm pretty much a sucker for any vintage Christmas decoration I come across, including this ornament set. It has 12 hand-painted ornaments depicting the 12 Days of Christmas. They're all in their original boxes and are so cute and retro!
The Four Calling Birds one is my favorite.
I found this ornament tree at a church garage sale and purchased it to display ornaments on in my booth closer to Christmas. But I really don't know if I'll be able to part with these ornaments. They're just too cute!
My last find was this Hummel music box. It's not my style, but it was in great shape. Plus it plays "Edelweiss" and I love the Sound of Music!
