This week’s projects are collections of last month’s stuff gathered from thrift stores around town. There are various items ranging from decorative to useful. All of them cost pennies on the manufacturers’ suggested retail prices. Many of them will be holiday stocking stuffers.
The star vase of the month depicts a leaping fish. Multi-colored echinacea seem to work best with this container. Other treasures include a Fujifilm disposable camera and three unopened audio cassettes.
Orange Gerbera daisies compliment a striped glass vase. The one-eighteenth scale, 2002 Corvette Z-06 needs some minor repairs before it goes into permanent display.
The vintage Delftware teapot is the star of this photo. It is accompanied by a Delft tile trivet, and a blue Kanawha crackle-glass, pitcher vase. A posy of paper roses highlights the presentation.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes fashion designer, Jeremy Scott. “I don’t really shop unless it’s thrift.”
