My latest thrift finds are pretty containers for my studio. The first one is an old powder container in a pale blue hue, in which I put my decorative beads and jewel trims. I also picked up this shabby metal bucket, which is great for holding my paintbrushes.





These two glass jars are perfect containers for my millinery flowers, so that their beauty can be enjoyed while waiting for their own special project to adorn! I was inspired to put them in clear glass by seeing something similar on another blog...... (I tried to find it again so I could thank them for the idea, but I couldn't locate it!) At any rate, I love this idea!
The large glass container was $1.99, all the other containers were only 99 cents each.
More on my studio later ~~ I'm very excited about it!! :)

becca,
Your site looks so cute as usual. I want to go to the thrift store now, but its closed.
So glad you got that book, its a really good one. I also have the new Victorian magazine, lots of nice pictures in this issue, and a nice write up about Beatrix Potter and the movie that is out. I plan on getting that as soon as it comes out on DVD.
Sure would like to know who sent me those postcards.

I do the same thing with my millinery flowers! I have them in apothecary jars on top of a cabinet. Such a joy to see them every day, their colors and textures are so lovely. Check out my blog for pics. I can't believe you got your jars so CHEAP!! Love it.

So glad to have found you. Your blog is a delight to the eye. I too would love to go hunting for treasures with you...and do lunch!
My home in Idaho was built in 1906, we celebrated it's Birthday last year. It is a cottage farm house...everyone calls it the sleeping house...because they relax. I love vintage anything and you certainly have a way with showing it off....Mary
