I’ve been on a little bit of a copper kick. I think it’s because I can’t get on board with the whole brass trend since the 80’s and 90’s are still very fresh in my mind. So copper it is.
While out running errands with my daughter, we stopped by an estate sale (haven’t done that in AGES) and I bought a set of 6 copper mugs. That sort of set the ball rolling…
I’ve been on the hunt for furniture and rugs for the new place but haven’t had much luck lately. I better get on it, or we’re going to move in without a bed, sofa, or dining table, among others. Of course, all is not lost, seems I’m always able to find a little something. I picked up this mortar and pestle while out “poppin tags” with my sister. I loved the pale color and cracks in the bowl. You just can’t beat patina.
It set me back a whole $2.99. I could have gotten it for half-off if I had a coupon.
Drats. There goes a buck fifty.
At an antique store, I found a set of 12, sterling soup spoons with a monogrammed “B”.
It’s not every day you come across a dozen with your initial. Had to have them.
It’s been a while since I’ve taken any photos with a real camera. I’ve been relying heavily on my iPhone. Maybe too much. It felt good to be behind the lens again, shooting my finds just for fun. Working with some pretty light and a few trusty props. And I remembered how much I loved it.
Have you picked up any great antique or thrift store scores lately?
Between posts you can find me on Instagram (heatherbullard) sharing the little things in life.
You know what they say, better late than never, right? I’ve been meaning to share my trip to NYC with you and completely forgot. So let’s just pretend I got back last week instead of in December. We’ll begin with the shopping first, starting with Fishs Eddy. I’m not sure a trip to NYC would be complete without a visit here…there’s just so much good stuff.
When you walk in you’re greeted by this enormous display of waving ceramic hand molds….
And in the window they have a creative display of broken china…
And everywhere you look there are stacks, upon stacks, upon stacks of dishes. There are new and vintage pieces here, making for a great place to pick up lost pieces of a collection or begin an entirely new one. I’d start with the cake pedestals or white china.
And for you color lovers, there is plenty to choose from as well.
Like this tower of rainbow mugs or pile of colorful berry baskets…
And I thought this Brooklynese Cawfee Set was a crack up!
If you can’t make a trip to NYC, Fishs Eddy has a great website and their prices seem very reasonable. I know the next time I’m in the city, I’ll be spending more time here. It’s one of those perfect sources for prop inventory, and home goods!
