I've been enjoying a really mellow, relaxing weekend ~ exactly what I needed! The weather has been storybook perfect...cool, crisp, and sunny. Perfect for a little thrifting!
I picked up a few little gems I wanted to share today...
I broke my "no ashtrays" rule for this little guy. How could I resist the glowy brass and nautical vibe? It's sooo heavy--the perfect paperweight. Or dish to hold spare change and jewelry. Love at first sight.
One of my favorite little junk shops had a ton of pretty silverplate at GREAT prices this week. I snapped up this elegant pitcher [I love the feet!]...
...two enormous Revere bowls (three, actually, but I only snapped two for the photo!)....
...and finally, this lovely coffee service. I especially love the pinecone finial on the lid! Looks like I'll be spending some quality time with the ol' silver polish this week.
Last up, I found this pretty opaque black glass serving set.
This is actually black amethyst glass -- it has a luminescent purple tone when you hold it up to light -- and I believe it's the Mt. Pleasant/Double Shield pattern by LE Smith. Isn't it perfect for Halloween? I'd like to serve something scary, like green jello "brains" in it. :)
I actually found several other great things while I was out and about this weekend, but I haven't had time to photograph it all yet, so I'll share the rest later. Wishing you all a lovely week!
