Yes, I may be going through slight withdrawal...
Not a single thrift store, garage sale or flea market in two weeks...unless you count a Sunday afternoon at Canton Trade Days...but that was ALMOST two weeks ago...
I had to dig through my Picasa web albums to find a few things I had not shown you yet...things that felt a bit "autumnal."
The obelisk in the top photo above will be painted or gilded and I plan to keep it.
The wood thing below it will be painted as well...it has a "bowl" in it. I'm not sure if it is a candle holder or something else...what do you think? Here's a photo of the "bowl."
It is a little dirty, and needs painting. There's no evidence of wax from a candle...so I don't know what it might be, but the shape is pretty cool.
I think the "container" below could actually be a ceramic finial that broke apart...a mistake.
That's a pretty huge lid for a small bowl...top-heavy. But then again, it could just be a design that tried something new. Part is glazed, part is rough. I like it, whatever it is, and it was cheap.
The goblets below will be listed on Etsy, if I ever get around to LISTING on Etsy. I have three categories of things waiting for me - things that need to be listed, things that need to be photographed then listed, and things that need to be painted, then photographed, then listed.
The vintage book below is one I found in Oklahoma City in July...
I seriously do NOT need to go to a thrift store any time soon. I need to get caught up on the stuff in my various "to do" stacks...
SO, I'll plan to live vicariously through you and your wonderful finds. Deal?
On that note, take a look at features from last week:
Celia from My Thrift Store Addiction is back with another feature! Look at her beautiful autumn harvest mantel...using natural items (from the grocery store, even!) and white vessels...lovely.
Kim from Snug Harbor Bay shared a post that is both practical and attractive; how to refurbish cutting boards purchased at garage sales. I have bought several myself, and at first, I had qualms...but read this and know it works. Cutting boards are a "fashion" item these days...

Word for the Day:
24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,
25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some,
but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see
the Day drawing near.
