We were treated to an unplanned visit from Tyler last week so I stayed off the internet for most of that time. We had a great time with him and wish he could have stayed longer. We got some other projects started after he left and will share those soon, but I wanted to share the gifts the thrifting gods provided yesterday!
My dear friend Aileen mentioned that she would love to have a terrarium, so I volunteered to make one for her. I’ve been on the hunt for something really awesome to house the plants without much luck. We found this large round vessel at Goodwill yesterday and I think it’s time to start ‘terraforming’. 😉
We also found a few brass items on the shelves. One was planter but it wasn’t actually brass and they wanted $8.00. Sorry, but I thought that was a bit much. Phoenix & dragon pot. Elsewhere was this beautiful phoenix & dragon pot for $2.00. This was a much better deal in my opinion!
I believe it probably had a lid with it originally but we are intending to store something openly in it so it wouldn’t make a difference!
A sweet little glass box with mirrored bottom.
There have always been a brass cricket boxes in the house and most have come and gone, except the one on the left, which has been around for as long as I can remember. We’re passively rebooting our collection, starting with the small box we bought a couple months ago. Part of yesterday’s score was the larger box on the right.
And of course, I’ve started looking online at more beautiful boxes! As tempting as they are, I’m going to hold off and allow them to find us locally.
Not that I follow trends but I do love my brass!
