Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! I know you've heard me say it before and you'll probably hear me say it again, but one of the biggest reasons I am addicted to thrifting is the thrill of the hunt. I never know what treasure is just around the corner and waiting to be discovered. In this case, delightful art was hidden inside a plain Jane book cover.
I adore vintage books and since many of them have such gorgeous covers, I could have easily overlooked this one with its nondescript appearance. Fortunately, I make it a habit to check the copyright date and thumb through the pages...
...which is when I struck gold--the illustrations are wonderful!
It was published in 1927 by General Electric when electric refrigerators were new, as reflected by the text. One of the menu suggestions is jellied soup stock--no thanks! I do love the clothes, though!
This has to be my favorite--how often do you "entertain friends at the theater?" ;)
Next, I was instantly smitten by this graphite pencil sketch of bunnies. I plan to update it with a more complementary frame.
These melamine plates with a pretty morning glory design, do show some vintage wear with visible cutlery marks, so I am offering the set of four at a discount. They're perfect for picnic ware and outdoor dining. See more details here!
I've sold several Lefton collectibles in my Etsy shop, but I've never seen this little lamb before. Doesn't he have the sweetest face? Available
Until next time, happy hunting!
