The thrift store has been very good to me lately. This past week my finds were all about the kitchen.
Take this group of silver butter knives for instance.
Each one has such a lovely design on it.
My favorite is the one in the middle.
I have always found it fun to use butter knives . . . is that weird?
It's just such a lovely way to add charm to a simple meal family meal. Plus a mini lesson in table etiquette is always a good thing for my girls.
My adventures in thrifting also turned up these two small bowls with pretty flowers.
Their size is larger than a butter pat dish but I can't figure out what they would be used for.
For now, they make a great base for pillar candles.
My favorite find of the week is this metal trivet.
I can't tell you how long I have looked for one of these.
I've always thought they would be such a great help in the kitchen and the perfect way to add a little old school charm to my counter tops.
There are a few area's with slight rusting, but for the most part it's in great shape.
I adore the scalloped edging and the sweet heart design in the middle.
As for the rust . . . any suggestions on how to remove it?
