Welcome back my friends! I'm psyched to be bringing you another installment of my Thrill of the Hunt series that we've all grown to know and love. Well, at least I have, anyway - ha! Sit back and relax and let's just see what vintage finds I have to share with you today.
Here's the cute farmhouse cow.
Just look at her face!
And here's the equally cute squirrel cousin, holding a sweet flower! Too cute. My hope is to sell vintage salt and pepper shakers in my new yet-to-be-named Etsy shop, but these two are keepers!
Next up is another one of my state plates. Illinois is especially near and dear to my heart because I live there! (Do you detect a collection coming on? Well, yes, because I've started one.) Vancouver, Tennessee, St. Francis Canada....and more that I have not even shared with you yet.
I always love looking at the points of interest on each of the plates. Being an Illinoisan I'm ashamed to say that I've only been to two listed here.
I was originally drawn to this plate because of its gold detailing.
I also picked up a GAP plaid 100% wool scarf at the local Salvation Army. I knew right away that it was huge - quite long and wide - and that it would make an awesome Christmas table runner. $4.99 was a bit steep for me, but I knew it was made well and would be used for many years to come. PLUS table runners can be so expensive! (Especially nice Christmas ones.) I plan on having it dry cleaned at a discount dry cleaner before I use it (better get cracking on that).
Finally, here's a vintage gold frame I just couldn't not bring home. It's missing the back, but for .99 cents I knew I could fix that pretty easily. The only question is: to paint or not to paint?
Any time I find a vintage frame with this amount of detail I can't resist. How about you? And would you paint it?
I hope you enjoyed reading about my
Thrill of the Hunt #37 finds.
Thanks for spending time with me today!
