Well I had a couple of more finds on the weekend. It was not my intent to turn this into a thrifting blog, but I might run with it as or when it happens.
Found these lovely canisters for $3! I love red. I particularly love red as a feature in my kitchen. I have a few red feature tiles, and a couple of other red accessories. Just loved the brightness of these.
As I don't really need more canisters, I thought they might look cute as a feature. How about this ..... flying canisters (not a permanent feature, just velcro-ed to the wall to see how it looked!).
What is it about vintage things that was just so powerful? I think going back to the 60's for example, they just seem to make such a strong statement. This leads me to my next subject. Vintage Knitting Patterns!
I came across this little gem. Don't you just love it? There are a couple of things I could say about the cover, but I won't.
However, what about this one. A couple of captions spring to mind...... 'But Eunice, Mother used to always iron my underpants, I don't see why you won't!' could be one.
No prizes, no winning entry, but can you think of something he would be saying? Nothing too rude thanks, I'm pretty broad-minded, but keep it clean!
and also for this one! Note position of chair.
They are great patterns and I would love it to be cold enough to be wearing one of these classics! I'm still toddling along with the vest I'm knitting at the moment.
Have fun - I'm off to declutter.
Cheers for now Wendy
