Recent finds

I have some great new finds, some of which are already in the Etsy store.  First off, I found this great metal mail holder:
It's brass plated as opposed to solid brass - I know because a magnet sticks to it.  If it were solid brass, the magnet wouldn't stick. 

Antlers are everywhere in design right now.  I like the look, but I don't like the real thing, because I feel sorry for the poor animal who died.  This is a resin piece, which I prefer!  

I was drawn to this glass bucket because I thought the design was pretty.  I don't know a thing about glass, so I have no idea who the signature is from. 

Any idea who this maker is? 

Finally, I found this oversized clothespin, made of solid walnut.  I've seen something like this as part of a desk set before.  My best guess is that it is from the 70s.  

Happy Holidays, everyone!

  1. Just so you don't have to feel bad, bucks "shed" their antlers each winter and grow an new set each year so most of the antlers you see did not come from a deer that has died. They actually call them sheds. I have several that I have found in our woods over the years. I prefer the real ones as they are each unique and have character - finding the pair is even better! Nice glass bucket but I don't recognize the signature.

    1. Oh wow, thank you so much for that info. I had no idea! How fun it must be to find these in the woods!
