I was feeling kind of blah on Friday, so I headed over to the local thrift store to treasure hunt. The thrift store closest to us is not my favorite, but it has a decent selection of glass and ceramic items. Like all thrift stores, it’s hit-or-miss.
Friday, was a hit. I got two lovely items (for a grand total of $1.40).
I almost always pick up little trays like this because I know they will come in handy for something. This particular one was the right length for sunglasses, pens, keys, etc. Little trays help to make “clutter” look more ordered. Plus, orange.
Once home, I decided to use it for bracelet storage.
That’s my great uncle’s pocket watch. I like that it’s more on “display” now that it lives in the orange tray.
Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to do with this one but I loved that it was wee and lidded. It was like a tiny honey pot (a la Winnie the Pooh, keep up with me here).
It ended up joining some other small dishes in my supply drawer in the office. It holds rubberbands (which I don’t really use, so they may as well be hidden under a lid).
