Weekend Finds

Went to a bunch of sales again this weekend.

I picked up a couple of apparel design text books from the 60's. I love the pink and red colors.

Found this great condiment caddy base. It's very worn - lots of wear and tear.
But, it's from West Hotel in Minneapolis, a hotel that was built in 1884, and at the time considered the most luxurious hotel west of Chicago.
I plan to find some glasses that fit and use it to hold flowers.

This was probably a towel rack and soap dish. I thought it would be nice to hold old photographs or mail, with a little trinket dish.

Tiny silver owl salt cellar.

This is a lovely little silver tray, perfect size for holding flatware, which is good...
since I also found a handful of great silverplate pieces - including some mini sugar tongs.

This is the tray and the sugar tongs already hard at work with some grape tomatoes.

Linked up to Southern Hospitality's Thrifty Treasures.


  1. Always fun to see what your latest finds are. :-)

  2. Love your silver finds...especially the silverware.

  3. Oh my goodness, owls are so huge right now. I love it. Thanks for sharing.
