At a cost of $45, wet hair and chilled-to-the-bones body, and 2 glorious hours....my net gain was the following:
Let's take a closer look at this loot, shall we?
Raise your hand if you know what will happen to the mirrors? Ding Ding Ding! Paint, glaze, hang in collage, repeat.
I found these fall/winter barn scenes completely gorgeous. If you look closely, you'll see touches of my beloved robins egg blue....which will of course direct the painting of the frames.
I think I'll do a two toned aged effect on them, and save them for cold season decorating. This is the other side of the barn I believe. Looks like the wilds of my home state of Indiana.
Check out the glorious glass...even though I'm not normally crazy for hearts, give me hobnail hearts on a pale green hurricane lamp any ding dang day. Come on now.
Don't I know it. See that date? I think it might be a repro due to markings on the bottom, but shhhhhhhhhh. Don't tell.
Couldn't pass by the two wee oil lamps. And I totally dig that pale greeny-blue vase. Aren't her shapely curves amazing?
Now see, you must understand that each time I enter a thrift shop, heart puttering and hands sweating, I always look for white pitchers. Always. I heart them. My house is becoming not only a bird sanctuary, but a white pitcher museum. Ask me if I care.
How could I pass up this little white diddy? I mean truly, couldn't you just eat it up, scalloped edges and all?
And yes, another retro birdie print. How could I resist? The frame will be dressed in you-know-what. Have you ever?
So there ya have it. Pretty good take home, eh?
