Welcome to Trashy Tuesday! We totally talk trash here, but today we are talking treasure!! Grandma’s Treasures!
I found 8, count them 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8!!!!!!!! Cristal d’arques Water Glasses. I know this isn’t exactly Waterford or Tiffany, but not bad!! They were all individually wrapped in packing materials. Like they had never even been opened!
When I opened it, I found this pile of hand embroidered vintage table cloths, napkins and runners. All in almost perfect condition. I know, stop hating me, I don’t have good hair, but I do have amazing trash.
The bag also contained this Queen Sized Chenille bedspread. How cute for some pillows or upholstery? (I will wash them thoroughly, don’t worry. I even have washed furniture foam, you can wash tons of stuff in a washing machine if you are careful).
For my romantic side, I found a bunch of old sheet music books. I hope whatever project I make with the pages of Romeo and Juliet doesn’t end in tragedy……
I also found PAGES of empty sheet music. Maybe in my spare time I will pursue that dream of writing music. First I must do something about that habit I have of making up fake words to real songs.
I am positive the Barenaked Ladies were making up words to another tune when they came up this diddy:
Hold it now and watch the hoodwink
As I make you stop, think
You’ll think you’re looking at Aquaman
I summon fish to the dish, although I like the Chalet Swiss
I like the sushi
’cause it’s never touched a frying pan
Hot like wasabe when I bust rhymes
Yes, that’s me. I can see a great song in my future, hold that opening in the band for me Barenaked Ladies!
The theme of the last few weeks has been household goods. This week did not disappoint. I was down to one big whisk. I have an egg whisk and medium sized one, plus a nice stainless steel strainer spoon.
My last pastry cutter wasn’t cutting it. Good thing I found one today. Much more solid than the one I previously owned.
Don’t forget the school supplies! I have quite the collection of glue sticks now. I have found them at least once a month. Glue sticks make everything more fun.
And oh yeah! That trip to Nashville! I went with some of my friends from CeCe Caldwells paints. More on that coming soon! I had some time to kill on my last day and decided to check out the local dumpsters around my hotel. If you ever wanted to know what hotel dumpsters have the most of, this is the common denominator. Did you catch that clever word play? Leave a comment if your brain works like mine.
If I could have taken one of them home I would have totally painted it in CeCe Caldwell’s Santa Fe Turquoise and made a planter out of it.
The week was so fun, more details coming on Nashville, but what is a good Mormon Girl doing with all of these empty liquor bottles?
I actually found those this morning and someone was nice enough to leave me a box to stick them in. Cleaned up and painted with a fun graphic, they are transformed.
There was more, but I will save it for next week. Your eyes must be getting tired now and all MY PRECIOUS things I have found. Until next week, keep it totally trashy!
