Weekend Thrifting Finds

Here are my finds for the past week!
A little peacock mirror, and an old copy of Anna Karenina.

A little iron easel - which will be perfect for displaying old photos. It is holding a tiny plate.
The plate shows The House of Seven Gables in Salem MA. I visited the house (where Nathaniel Hawthorne once lived) a long time ago, and would love to go back.
Will add this to my pile of mismatched butter pats.

Pretty little Reed & Barton silver bowl.

And this little Noah's Arc something or other. I'm not sure what it is.
It has an opening in the center. I thought maybe a card holder?? Anyone have any ideas what it might be?

Linked up to Monday's Thrifty Treasures, hosted by Southern Hospitality.

  8. Wow, great finds! I love the peacock mirror! And the little plate looks so cute on the easel! I took a grade school field trip many moons ago to Boston, and we visited that house while there.

  9. I had that same Noah's ark piece! It's a picture holder - the picture floats between two pieces of glass that slide into the ark.
