My friend and I have reserved Thursday afternoons for Tea and Thrifting! it's fun to have an afternoon, grown up, let's explore and chat without children interruption time.
This week, I found a few treasures. The wooden elephant puzzle is from Brocklin Toys, Middleton, NS. They don't appear to have a website, but I do love the sturdiness of it.
And the wooden dish. It is carved from one piece. I have plans to restore both wooden pieces with some steel wool and beeswax polish. I'll post the after when I get it done. I'm sure the grain will look beautiful with some polish.
And what should I do with the bowl, well, display some more treasures!
A few weeks ago, I won a blog giveaway from Lil Fish Studios
A pound of buttons! Nice to get in the mail on a cold winter day. We sat for tea and had a good look through on the table. I'm sure the people around us thought we were nuts! My daughter took all the shiny buttons.
The cheery fabric under it all is a skirt. I couldn't resist. I may resize it to wear or just use it for a project. It makes me smile.
I have many more treasure to show. I think I'll have a regular Thrifty Thursday and Tea. I may happen on Fridays by the time I can get photos in the day light.
thanks for looking,
