Some Finds I Keep

I usually show photos of things I plan to sell in my booths, but sometimes something ends up staying right here. Of course, when that happens it means I have to get rid of another things to make space! I thought today I'd share with you some of the more recent additions to my home space.

This is the most recent: a lamp I found yesterday for $2.00! I thought I was going to sell it and make a nice profit, but once I got it home and tested it to be sure it worked, I fell in love with it and it will stay right here. I think this lamp is at least 50 years old, judging by the cord on it.

Then there is the pretty glass bird. You know how much I like birds, and that I have quite a few of the glass variety around the house. Some collections grow without realizing it's a collection, and my birds are that way. I found this amberina one at an auction and knew it was going to be part of my glass bird collection (and part of my red glass collection as well). Although it doesn't look like it in the photo, it is actually more red than amber.

Red seems to be moving into almost every room of my house, and the kitchen has the bulk of it. I especially like this color I call Chinese red, although it probably has a more accurate name.

I found this little salt and pepper set on eBay; I'd been trying to buy a set for my vintage Tappan stove for some time but always the price was just more than I was willing to pay. This set isn't perfect but it was in my price range, and I'm not perfect either--which makes them a perfect match for me.

Linking today to Make it Pretty MondayYesterday on Tuesday, Nifty Thrifty Tuesday and A Diamond in the Stuff.. Stop by and see what they've been up to.

It's perfectly fair that you get to keep the ones you like for as long as you want to. I love your perfect/imperfect shakers -- how does one distinguish between the salt and the pepper? I can't see a clear difference . . .

Hope you have a great rest of the weekend, taking good care of yourself . . . ;-)
