…trash to treasure

I love trawling through junk shops, second hand stores and charity op- shops for special finds. Yesterday, I found this gorgeous solid, heavy silver teapot, with the most wonderful shape and that aged patina you only get from years of use. I don’t think I will use it, but I love how it looks and feels.

I also found this quite contemporary, very simple pale pink glass vase. I think it looks great with some quite simple flowers in it.

They are both very different items but equally lovely to me. There is something really satisfying on a lot of levels, about taking something that is discarded as junk by someone, and turning it into treasure.
