My good luck in finding lots of treasures at the thrift/op shops I visit weekly, continues. I have been having a great run of good fortune. I keep justifying my
obsession, compulsion, hobby by telling myself and my husband that I plan to sell some of the items on-line or even at the markets, but, you know there is always a but, I just haven't got around to it yet. I have made a start with listing a few things on Etsy, but honestly nothing that will make a dent in all the stuff I have. Never mind, I am enjoying having these treasures around me and I enjoy the process of shopping for them, so why stop? I keep telling my husband it's our retirement fund.
I know, can you believe it!!! Vintage Tupperware, Pyrex, Quilted pot holders, cake tins, aluminium strainer, anodised aluminium bread bin, wooden laundry tongs, on and on I go.
|What about the Laundry Tongs! Aren't they great, I am so going to use them, I am currently using a big old (not too old) wooden spoon to put things in and out of soaking water.|
|This is where the Chianti bottle has found its new home, on top of the freezer on the verandah.|
|This is an old heavy billy can, I'm going to use it in the laundry.... not sure how yet.|
|I have had a set of 12 of these for some time now, but one broke last time I used them. So now instead of 12 parfait glasses I have a "bakers dozen" (13).|
