I still swing by the local thrift shops as often as time allows. I don't find near as many amazing things as I used to. That makes it extra exciting when I do stumble upon a prize I suppose. I love, love, love spatterware enamelware. I don't ever find it at thrift stores though. In fact, my husband found this bowl at an antique shop for a very fair price. The vintage, toy toolbox is super cute and I may use it in my greenhouses to corral supplies. I made the quilted mat inside the black tray and now use it to keep television remotes. The white enamelware tray? See the little pour spout on the front left corner? I believe trays like this were used in darkrooms back in the day. I think it looks like a conversation bubble used in cartoons. I'm thinking of hanging it on a wall with a bunch of magnetic letters. An interactive selfie station. Mostly I imagine putting my dog in front of it with the speech bubble above her head. Imagine all the funny things she would say!
