Fun Finds and a Finished Project

I have a few fun thrift store finds to share with you this week! 
Vintage wood bowls are something I never pass by...

Thrift Store Finds- Itsy Bits And Pieces

I found three this week!  They aren't perfect...cracked and worn...and I don't care.

I love to use them to hold pine cones, fall leaves, winter greens, 
old ornaments, plants...whatever strikes my fancy.

I love the wood tones.

And I found this fun cookie jar this week!  
Most in this line are elves...this one is a mischievous clown.  
Looks like he would be stealing the cookies.
In this photo, it is sitting on the cabinet re-do that I shared in my last post.

Thrift Store Finds- Itsy Bits And Pieces

Last week I finished that project with the wall pot rack I planned.

Pot Rack project - Itsy Bits And Pieces

These racks were inexpensive at IKEA and I particularly love 
the closed hook system, so the hooks won't pull off the rack.
We used masonry screws in the brick to provide strength.

I have added a few more pieces since I took these photos...
this project really has added some much needed storage!

Before I go...you might have noticed on my sidebar that I have reopened 
my Etsy Shop!  I'll be adding lots more in the days to come! 
If there is anything you are looking for, be sure to let me know...
I may have it and am happy to do custom orders!
I hope you'll stop by!

  1. Linda, I really like the pot rack, and those hooks are great. I do not have enough cabinet space for many things. I would love a pantry, but I have always dreamed of a pot rack over an island in my kitchen...now if I could just find the space. :):) This is a clever idea . Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. Yeah, that cookie jar is both cute and weird! Love the pots. I have all my pots in the dishwasher, as I don't use either. I don't have any wood bowls, but love the patina.

  5. Your Munising bowl was made in a town about 60 miles from me in Michigan. They are quite collectible locally and sell from $25.00- to $65.00 depending on size and condition. They came in salad bowl size to huge ( rare and very expensive). They also made rolling pins, salad serving pieces. Some were hand painted in the factory with pinecone, fruits and vegetables.

  7. My mother used a wooden bowl (Munising) along with a single blade, single handle Mezzaluna to chop onions and celery, I have it and still use them with the same purpose and think about how we used it when we made stuffing for Thanksgiving or onions for spaghetti.

  10. The wood bowls are beautiful - that's something I never see around here. Do you oil them with something?

    The clown cookie jar is creepy. LOL!

  11. The wood bowls are beautiful, Linda. I wouldn't have passed them up either. Your pot rack looks great. Having closed hooks must be very practical.
    Have a wonderful week!

  17. LOVE those bowls Linda and I just know you will be filling them with amazing treasures!

    The cookie jar.... well.... I am not a fan of clowns .... so I think he'd scare me away from the biscuits.... which is probably a good thing!

    I love everything else though ;) The pans look great above your dresser.

  18. I love your wooden bowls, Linda - I only have one, but I love it. The pot racks look wonderful - like a French kitchen, especially with the beautiful arched doorways you have! My sister would be horrified to see that cookie jar - she is terrified of clowns - haha! xo Karen
