It’s time once again for “Swap It Like It’s Hot!!” Charlotte at Ciburbanity organized a thrifting swap where we purchased something at our local thrift store and sent it to another blogger. That blogger then turns that “trash” into “treasure” and we’ve been sharing all week. Today it’s my turn! Jillian from I Am a Homemaker sent a package of treasures to me to transform and I’m hoping I don’t disappoint!
Can you guess which items are from the thrift store?
Here’s what came in the mail from Jillian. Two candlesticks, a silver serving piece, a tin platter, an old fruit box, Typerite letters, a large black frame, and a metal thingie that I have no clue what it is but I like it.
I love these vintage fruit and veggie boxes from farmer’s markets. I didn’t change it, other than to line it with a vintage hankie and then filled it with my favorite Milano cookies from Pepperidge Farm!
Even the metal thingie that remains elusive to me became useful for holding silverware. The other end opens up too, but it’s shallow inside. If anyone knows what it is, please let me know. Some kind of grater maybe?
