Farmhouse Finds...

Time for some thrift store finds!  Recently I've found some 
nice farmhouse style pieces...always my favorite!
Embroidered linen tea towels are something I never pass up!  They are usually quite inexpensive (this one was 79 cents) 
and they are so pretty...

Grouped with a couple of others I had, 
you can see the different patterns...

I found a couple of hand carved wooden utensils!  
It seems I've been finding these lately...
maybe because I'm actually looking for them now...

Do you think this is a fork...or maybe a washing stick?

They are perfect in this vintage crock I found...

I had thought, because of the markings, that it was from a lab...

But it is actually a French mustard crock!  You just never know...

Another French piece is this lovely oil jug. 
 More recently made, but very pretty!

And there was no passing by this blue and white tureen...


I love mixing pretty and rustic...
and this old spice rack is very rustic.

Finally...a little more pretty!  Look at this lovely drawstring crocheted purse. Imagine women using these...

Hope you've found some treasures, too!

I am joining~
Until next time...

  9. Now my favorite is the cutwork linens though everything is a great find. I am not sure about that fork thing. I think it is a honey-do husband prod? :)

  10. Wow, you found some cool stuff! I really like the hand carved wooden serving pieces. I've been looking for some but alas, I can't find any. It seems like when I start searching for something then I never see them where as before they were all over. ha.

    I love that tureen... very special and useful!

    The linens are so pretty.... hmm is the fork perhaps a little short for a laundry fork? the utensils all look so lovely in the jar.... I remember my mum having some wooden tongs for her twin tub!
