I'm sure many of you are addicted to searching the nearby thrift shops, checking every nook and cranny for something charming and unique. I just love a good search ;) And today a short post with my latest finds. Oh, by the way, do you think buying a stuffed pheasant is going too far? :P I liked it but didn't buy (yet).
Here's my first find - a brass pot before and after ("hours" of cleaning).
A beautiful colour of old gold.
It's my mini cauldron, already shown here.
Under all the stains this one's kind of pinkish. I deliberately left some of the marks - I don't like old things shining like brand-new.
I've no idea what it's called in English but it's beautiful nonetheless:)
An amazing old knife by Norblin (Warsaw), I found out it's from the 19 century and the floral pattern was called "Aleksander". I am so delighted with it, I just love the little flowers and the initials on it (N.W? Or M.M maybe?).
Here are things that didn't go home with me but the jury's still out :P
The first one is some kind of a cast-iron relief. Perfect for the garden, it'd look great surrounded by ivy.
And here's something that is supposed to be an old-fashioned barbecue. I can just imagine a group of elegant ladies and gentlemen having a picnic, talking and laughing while their servants grilled something nice for them ;) (or maybe the shop assistant was just pulling my leg?). Anyway, I think it would make an interesting plant stand.
If (or when) I find something worth mentioning, I'll definitely share :)
