Thrifting and What Is This?

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend.  My Christmas boxes are down (hubby counted them…16!)

I woke up this morning at 2:30am.  A million projects going through my mind (and of course I’m blogging all of it in my head…does anyone else do this???), finally got up at 4:45am!

I have so many projects going on.  Decorating, making a new bulletin board for over my desk, spray painting a bazillion things, finishing up the grout in the bathroom, making curtains for the bathroom and laundry room, AND painting the new buffet that we are making into a media center.  PLUS, working on a customer’s chalk board and a shelf..I don’t have time to sleep!!!!

Now that I have my disclaimer out there, you know why I’m a crazy person :-).

I had a great thrift day on Friday!

Good stuff huh?
I’m loving my frames!

My little file box that I will spray paint black.

I’m obsessed with these sconces.  I need to stop.

Book Ends!

I love the colors in this plate.  The green is perfect.
My plan? A big “W” on it!

A customer needed a 24×36 frame made before Christmas.
I found this 24×44 frame thinking, if it’s too big I have the perfect spot for it.
Well, it was perfect for her too. Darn.

My little Christmas tree $3.95.  It spins and plays, “I Wish You A Merry Christmas”

Here is MY FIND!!!! This silver punch bowl is HUGE!!!!!

Weighs about 10 lbs.  They had just brought it out and I snagged it.
Everyone in line was jealous :-).
Of course, that made the deal even sweeeeeter.

Grape leaves up close.

Ladle came with it.

Yup, that was the price.

Here is the question.  What the heck are these?

This sets on the top of the bowl.
I’m thinking it holds bottles so you can use the punch bowl as an ice bucket?
Anyone know?
