more random thriftingPosted: April 22, 2011
after what was looking to be a bust of a day thrifting, i found this vintage (introduced in 1959) paul mccobb platter. it’s white, it’s modern, i’ll take it.
sure, what i wouldn’t give to find some paul mccobb furniture, but seeing this platter after countless lackluster days of thrifting was like solid gold for me.
then i found 3 vintage pale celery green pyrex storage containers. since i don’t store any food in plastic containers cuz it’ll kill you dead, i love coming across small pyrex pieces with glass lids for leftovers. these are 4″ in diameter and this color is new for me.
look how i have strategically placed them next to my already owned made-in-denmark iron candleholders with pale celery green candles. i have created a celery green theme here for you.
the final item i picked up is a vintage wooden mirrored compact that looks to be scandinavian in design. would you say it’s scandinavian? i would. it’s 3″ x 3″ and i just love the handpainting.
the mirror is beat up (well, the whole thing is beat up), but i don’t plan on looking in the mirror. i’ll just use this as random
clutter decor around the house.
so that’s that.
this is a close-up of a vintage children’s book i’ve owned for years. the vegetable book.
corn on the mccobb.
