I will admit that I may be the only one in blogland actively seeking more stuff. Almost all of the after Christmas posts have been about resolutions, and organizing, and purging, but me I am gearing up for a new year of blogging. I need stuff. Props. New "old items" to use in new vignettes. It's what my blog is all about, organizing clutter!
So here are a few recently acquired items that you will undoubtedly see in the coming year on "Organized Clutter":
This vintage Santa planter is unmarked but I found some like him on Etsy for sale. I think he was made in Japan. He probably won't be seen again until next November. $3.
Still not sure why I picked up this die cast metal horse with Queen Elizabeth II riding side saddle. I do like royal souvenir items, but I really did think this was older than 1989 vintage, being metal and all. I guess it was from a "London Scene collection". $3.
This wooden bowl/wheelbarrow will certainly re-appear with a new paint job. $2. (Marked Woodcroftery)
A brass easel. $2.
A black wedgwood look plate in black and white "Rhapsody Crescent" by George Jones. $2.
A vintage poodle bookend. $2.
Not exactly sure what this rooster is supposed to be. I do like roosters though, especially cheap ones.
Maybe a sugar shaker and cream pitcher? $3.
A Special Flowers Rose tea cup and saucer by Queen's Rosina China Co. $3. I have a hard time leaving a tea cup and saucer at the store at that price.
This one also puzzles me why I brought it home. I like red. It's a hard board sign. Maybe not too old. I am sensing a vintage radio collection may be in my future. Yikes! Just what I need is another collection. I think this is a Zenith slogan.
I bought a few more items at the antique shop, not thrifty buys, that I will show you soon. I am redoing a wall in my kitchen.
