This is my overdue contribution to Selena's Thrift Share Monday post. She does this every week and it's a great chance to check out other people's finds and sometimes fall over in a dead faint from envy. Like I did when I saw the Bounty Huntress and her set of steel drawers for a mere $5.00. :)
While I'm a big fan of the muted shades of vintage linens and the dusty pinks of dried roses, I have a soft place in my heart for the avocado greens, blue/teals and oranges of the late 60's and 70's. When I saw this ice bucket at our local St. Vincent's I was in a mad swoon of "must have, please be cheap" and got very lucky. Two dollars.
Our new kitchen is in a rehabbed warehouse apartment and only 66 square feet. The one appliance that stands out the most is the avocado green refrigerator. It's something to contend with in a small kitchen that has yellow walls (haven't received permission to paint yet), but I find myself going relaxing into it and now I can see the charm.
The ice bucket will stay in the kitchen for now, but I've considered using it as a purse or a jewelry box. The real question is, will Mark go anywhere with me if I carry an ice bucket as a purse? :)
The blue glass refrigerator boxes were a gift from Mark a few Christmases ago.
I was just in the middle of a kitchen "re-org" and stepped out to run an errand. When I came home I fully expected to walk into the disaster I'd left behind, but as I did, my perspective changed. I didn't see the mess or clutter, I just saw a tiny kitchen filled with many of my favorite thrifted things. I've been collecting the tins that I HAVE on the stove ever since my mother gave me my first one about 12 years ago. Sometimes it pays to make a bread run.
