FOUND WHITES & Bad Moves


I found this little white vase for .50c. 
It's about 4 inches tall. I thought it was cute.


I also thought it was American-made.
I noticed the raised lettering around the
bottom - "MADE IN TAIWAN"
Oh, well. It's still cute for .50c


This little hobnail milk glass pitcher was a bargain.
It's small, too. It may hold 2 or 3 cups of milk or juice,
but it's no where near two quarts.


My favorite found white milk glass piece is this one:


I have never seen another one.
It appears to be an old after-shave
bottle. Does anyone recognize it?

I was so excited to find it! I thought it was cute
and I paid $2 to bring it home. I had plans to
use it as a bud vase or put it in my bathroom.
At least until this...


Tragic. I'm bummed. 


One false move and... 
my first photographic casualty. 

Why, oh why couldn't it have been
the little Taiwan thingy?

Word for the Day:

Psalm 147:3
He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.

May all the broken things in your life 
be bound up or restored in His perfect time.

Revi-
Cover some styrofoam with some sheet moss and stick it in and then you can still fill it with great fake looking flowers. I think it would look cool, but then I love broken things. It is way to amazing to throw out. Keep it until something hits you. It will.

I know how this feels one to many times. I always think the same thing why my best buy and not the cheaper. But, but,:( I sorry I can't think of anything to soften the blow. Wait, yes I can, I like the pitcher it is gorgeous and I think it was a great find. Enjoy!

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Oh, no!
That would be just like me...
Maybe you can find a creative use for it though. Definitely stick it styrofoam or sand first.
Sorry. ;(

Oh Revi, I am so sorry!

ugh. I hate it when that happens.

Last time I broke something it didn't even make it out of the bag from the thrift store....broke on way home when I went over the RR tracks.

Tragic.

I like your Biblical verse, keeps everything in perspective.

Hugs.

Hi Revi, oh I hate when things like that happen. It would have been so cute as a bud vase. Well, glad your other items survived. I love the little hobnail pitcher. Thanks so much for sharing them at my party.
Hugs,

Oh no. I've had that happen more than once. The other day, it was almost my camera...caught it just in time.
Love that hobnail pitcher and the Taiwan vase really is adorable.

Pamela said...

Oh no Revi!! That is a major bummer! I has something similar happen to me with some vintage pictures I had purchased for the dining room. I placed one on the wall and started clicking away and it fell off the wall!!! I was sooo upset and afraid to lift it up in fear of what I would find but thankfully it was pretty much all in tacked. Only one of the corners chipped away a tad but that adds character. Thanx for joining THT!

Shannon @ DoveNest28 said...

That sounds like something I would do! Love the hobnail pitcher, I have a full sized one with 5 (originally had 6, but one met the same fate as your bottle)small glasses. I'm on the look out for replacements, and now I want a small pitcher to match!

Hey Revi...I heard this quote a few days ago..our blessing is in the brokeness..that's where Christ truly remakes us into His likeness.How beautiful..just like your vase, he uses what we think is a tragic "shattering" in life as a way to piece by piece renew and transform us for a different use, thus the cute white vase. And it's usually what's precious, the price is high, but the reward is priceless. Him. This goes right along with what I wrote about in the wee hours this morning! Have a wonderful day! I am very into white these days too..hmmm..especially the raised dot milk vases like my grandmother used to have. Old things made new. Happy Friday! Blessings, Suzanne
