What’s bigger than a breadbox?Posted: April 19, 2014
What’s a bigger find than this fantastic, bright orange Ransburg breadbox?
Would you believe. . .
a FULL SET of matching Ransburg pieces? There are three canisters, a match box, a covered cake plate and two shakers. They aren’t flawless by a long shot. But the handpainted details are so pretty! This pattern is called Kitchen Bouquet.
I hope someone falls in love with them at Pettengill in June. Maybe someone with a turquoise or jadeite green kitchen. Wouldn’t that color contrast look fantastic?
Kitchen stools are bigger than a breadbox, too. This one said “Take me home! Take me home!” So I did. I’m such a pushover. It’s red! The price was right! I’ll probably take it to Pettengill, too.
And!!!! I got another Granny Square afghan! I’ve looked for these for years and never found any until recently. This one was crazy cheap at a thrift store I almost never visit. It needs a bit of mending, but only on a couple seams. And it doesn’t smell nasty, which is a huge plus.
I found some smaller treasures today, too, including this rainbow of anodized aluminum juice cups.
It was love at first sight when I saw this vintage silk scarf. What an AMAZING color combination!
Last but not least, my smallest treasure of the day: five red buttons. Although at 2 inches in diameter they’re not exactly small.
There was more, but these are my favorites. What a color binge of a day! 🙂
