Another lucky week of finds while thrifting at estate sales, junk and antique shops. This is a spoon holder I found at an estate sale. I had been looking for one for quite some time. They are in antique stores all the time, but very expensive.
I paid $10 for this one. There is a bird that sits atop the lid, and lots of pretty details. The spoons hang from their holders - 12 of them. The spoons did not come with this piece, I had some that fit perfectly, from a previous estate sale.
I also found this knife holder, it came with 5 knives, one was missing (luckily I have one that will fit). It is not very old, but I've never seen anything like this. I think it will be perfect to sit out at parties near a cheese tray.
This cocktail shot dispenser was found at a thrift store. The quilted crystal ball holds the liquor, the brass tray holds the shot glasses and the brass pump dispenses them. The tray rotates so you can fill all the shot glasses easily.
Very Mad Men-esque.
An old hat pin cushion I found at an estate sale. I recently took a trip to France, where I bought several vintage hats, and antique hat pins. This is perfect to hold the pins.
A cute little wood plant stand for $4. I plan to paint it and use it for something else...but I'm not sure exactly what!
And my thrifting would not be complete without some silver serving pieces.
Linking up to Flea Market Style for their I'm A Flea Marketeer blog party. They will be launching a new magazine soon, I'm very excited about it. If you haven't seen their site yet, check it out.
