Once again I have been a very lucky blogger! ZootsuitMama had a great giveaway of some vintage items and guess who was the winner??? Yep me! I was so excited to receive the package in the mail! Here are the wonderful and fun items packed in the box.
So many cute kitchen items
The tea bag holder is so kitschy!
My favorite item is this 1.5 qt Vintage Federal mixing bowl...I love it!
Thank you so much ZootsuitMama!
For Stephanie's Would You Buy It party
I'm sharing this interesting item
seen on a shelf in the thrift was this
The other side
OK so this is kinda weird looking
This is what the bottom showed me and that the original price was $75
HUH? Well for 60 cents I took it home
I then did a little Google search and found out this was carved in 1999 and was the 3rd issue in a series called Romance Annual
Only thing was...there was a top missing...oh no. The next day I returned to the thrift in hopes of finding the other piece....and I did!
Another 60 cents
Here is the piece put together
TENDER IS THE NIGHT
" This piece represents the cerebral nature of love. A wise owl carries in his beak a red rose for his mate who gazes at him wistfully. The interior portrays an enlightened owl in Zen meditation"
from the Harmony Kingdom website
The back side of the piece
So would you have bought this?
I must say it is not my style at all but I was intrigued by the details and carvings on this piece. I has a few chips but does not take away from its beauty. I am looking to pass this on to someone who would appreciate it. Contact me if interested.
