Tiny Finds

Not everything we find is big. Often what I find when I'm out thrifting is some little thing that just catches my eye. Today's post is dedicated to the little finds that make me smile.


 It is an eclectic mix, for sure. Little wooden bird whistle and a very small matroishka nesting doll, small flowered boxes and tins, a tiny amber bird...


a cobalt heart paperweight and a small antique milk glass plate

that has great "fire" inside (a sure indicator of older milk glass).


A sparkly prism paperweight, odd little bird pitcher marked "Foreign Made",


a lavender tin (my favorite scent),


 strange little ceramic monkey that is badly chipped but I can't bring myself to throw it away because, well, look at that face! Another pretty flowered box,


and a rose-topped trinket box.


while the little vase is marked "Occupied Japan" but is a souvenir from Manitou Springs, Colorado,


and a tiny key and a "Twinkies" spoon which was a giveaway from a shoe manufacturer in the 1930's.


These all live in various places in the house. Combined value of all of them might be $50-75 but for me, they're just the little things that brighten my day.

Do you have collections of little things like this?

That prism paperweight and glass bird would come home with me! Just as well I'm too far away to come shop.

Yes I do have tiny little treasures here and there to enjoy. You have some good little treasures and thank you for bringing up some good memories.

I love little things such as these and have quite a few pieces in a curio cabinet. I don't know what really attracts me to such things.

Oh so many cute little things - love that little glass bird. I have three - one is a bit bigger and two are that same size - blue, green and red. They live on my bed table - two of them I got in WV when we visited Jamie and Rusty a few years ago. I've never seen a golden one - so pretty.
