Every week I hunt the local thrift shops looking for the cool cast offs from other people. This week I totally hit the jack pot.
Seriously, who in their right mind would box up this 1950’s canister set and donate it? When I spied this GORGEOUS set I actually gave a little scream and made the sales lady promise that she would not sell it to anyone else while I looked around the shop some more. All intact and still sporting a little flour inside one of the tins I think this can go down in history as one of the GREATEST thrift shop finds EVER…
In this fantastic line of work that I do I am lucky enough to be able to trade work for items, and this week my pal Krystyna gave me this amazing old Underwood typewriter that has been in her family forever. She’s redoing her guest bedroom and it does not fit into the decorating scheme anymore – in return I have painted and distressed a coffee table for her – lucky me eh?
Once again, Howard has managed to get himself into another post and appears to be to be trying to read the old french music that I have in the roller – he’s such a continental guy!
Finally, as many of you already know one of my favorite things to do is to sit back and enjoy a good cup of ‘joe. There’s just something about strong black coffee that just really nails it. So in celebration of everything that is coffee, I present The Coffee Station – another reinvented shutter that was destined for the burn pile… tsk tsk tsk!
if you want, by adding some s hooks to the metal triangle you can hang more coffee cups – uh oh… something else to start collecting!
Hope your having a great weekend!
