Urban Treasure


Look at all these thrifty goodies. 
Seriously, I have no idea why people let go of so many amazing things.
I'll take them, but I think you are crazy.





In order top to bottom:

 1. Cotton crochet doilies. I have about 100 of them now.
Im sure they will come in handy for some of that mending I talked about in my last post.
2. Pasta maker. I can finally make that kale and ricotta ravioli I've been dreaming about.

3. Ladle. You'd think for such a soup obsessed family we would have a ladle. This is our first ladle.
4. Apple Slicer. Im just waiting to use this for some pies this fall. 
-
5. Adorable Tiny Forks. I can not help myself, tiny utensils always get me. 
-
6. Canning Tongs. Oh just you wait, plenty of that to come.

7. Adorable tiny human.
 He wasn't thrifted, but he is definitely a treasure. (Sorry, I had to)

    1. I know right! Tiny puppies, tiny sweaters, tiny cupcakes, even tiny diapers! Make anything tiny and it's instantly cute.

    1. Hey! Sadly, I got these thrifty goodies in Detroit! When I visit my parents there I have to hit all the honey holes. It's hard to find amazing stuff in Chicago sometimes because everything is so picked over!

  5. Oh - a pasta maker! How delightful :-)
    Our little town just had its annual Town-Wide Garage Sale Extravaganza. It was amazing and I absolutely load up with cheap treasures, not the least of which were three small antique meat grinders. Not sure what I'm going to do with them yet, but they were a steal! I love that...
    Thanks for sharing
