~vintage finds~

good morning!
popping in quickly to show off some finds from the last couple of weekends.

here's my 1st find of this morning- cast iron "Salter n0.34" kitchen scales.
they are soo heavy! wish the bowl had come with them. it's now sitting behind
my other vintage scales on my kitchen hutch.
sweet candle holder (i have a few other pieces that match this one)
and a cut glass jar/pepper shaker without it's top. perfect for holding a few
flowers to sit on the bedside table. i'm such a sucker for vintage cut glass
and pottery/ceramic roses! and cute cherubs for that matter ;))
LOVE a good old wine box! i've come across a few, but never at the right price!
thankfully this one was! thought it would be great for holding all my
sample sized paint pots.
last Sunday i visited a local Antique Fair.
this little unmarked jug was the 1st thing i bought.
vintage milkshake cups! i've kept the typed price tag on them,
and will use them as vases.
English Staffordshire canister. i'm think i'll paint the lid white.
this one might end up in the bathroom holding cotton buds, etc.
my last find at the Fair were these pretty vintage brooches.
my collection of brooches is definitely growing!
you can see my other brooches here.
have a happy week everyone.
