Found pieces




Saturday's yard saling stuff:
From the top: The Missing Piece by Shel Silverstein, with his wonderful inscription to a girl named Sarah. Now in our son Fletcher's growing collection of things inscribed, but not to him. :(

Vintage toddler's SnoPeak arctic bomber jacket, with boiled wool hood trim and slight lining-of-an-old-backpack patina. My hope is that he'll wear it this winter, but with our novice size forecasting, it'll probably fit him next July. (much to his grandmothers' relief).

A little Puppenhaus-size Rya rug. More likely made to be a pillow by a 70's crafter, but our first thought was that it definitely could be a Finnish salesman's sample.

Two large enameled industrial factory lamps in perfect condition- the stuff that looks like a chip is actually old plaster which just chips off, but we'll leave it there. These will be hung on cable and retracticle cord above a kitchen island in the guest apartment we're working on this summer.

Lastly there's a stylized brass hippopotamus box.
Total, $13.00- the lamps were 5 each.

Those factory lights are awesome. Well done.

Good job, thrifters! I am glad the jacket is teensy as I was going to be mighty jealous if it was an adult size!
That hippo is adorable, too.

Maybe he can practice writing his name by crossing out all the strangers names in his books and scribbling his in? Come crayon-grip era, you may not have a choice.
