Well, I haven't posted any thrift finds lately because there hasn't been any! No garage sales around here this time of year. No estate sales near me, and the thrift stores have been either closed for the holidays or horribly lame in merchandise. Last week, however, I did pick up a few things.
The "Love" tile is a trivet with a cork backing. I have no idea how old it is-- anybody have a guess? I don't know if it's from the "Love Story" era or more recent. The two glass jars are definitely old as is the frame and that modern looking silver thing-- know what it is?? Read on.
This metal (brass?) frame had the old-world looking picture in it. I forgot to take a picture before I slipped in a more neutral piece of scrapbook paper. Thought that might help it sell. If any one wants that picture-- it's yours. It's nothing special, just thin paper although probably pretty old. It's going in my collage stash where it will sit for a long time I imagine.
So here is that silver thing. It's a very MCM bell. Made in Germany in about the 1950s. I read the top is also a candle holder. Hmm... interesting. It was originally part of a set which included cocktail utensils.
