Thrifting In The Round
This is a fair sized awkward thing but oh! what fun! It is a turntable and treat tray with a definite circus feel about it. It does spin in its base too. Can't you just see it all filled up with wee cakes and sweet treats? The flamingo is another bird for the collection.
These two tins are old, and lovely. All the designs on the left tin are embossed. On the right the tin has a lovely pastoral scene with sheep.
It hadn't noticed until I got it home but the real surprise is the sticker on the side- this was a souvenir from someone's trip to the Eiffel Tower. Imagine that!
Another souvenir, this time from Niagara Falls.
More swans! I cannot seem to resist them! The little Wedgwood type dish is unmarked but the head looks a lot like President Kennedy. The real, marked Wedgwood plates have a much more detailed image of him.
