Flea Finds

I love elephants.  
I have a few elephant items around the house.  
Not a full blown tchotchke collection, just a print, paperweight, 
{and a huge poster from the kids department, I couldn't help it!}
I grabbed this 12" square wrapped canvas painting off the wall at Goodwill
It's signed and numbered but I haven't been able to find anything on it yet.


My Mom found these salt & pepper shakers.

  
I get my love of blue and white from her, 
AND 
she has 
Courier & Ives-adar
They're missing the stoppers, I wonder where I can buy some...

I love these little dishes, a set of 8, perfect condition

Lastly we went to two estate sales.  
We probably should have stayed home as there was a terrible storm going on and they were about 30 miles away.  
I personally think estate sales when raining STINK.  
They are crowded to begin with but when it rains everyone is crammed inside with wet jackets, umbrellas, etc. and parking is just a nightmare.  
But as a die hard thrifter I end up thinking, why not, lets just pop in real quick.  
Two estate sales, two hours (plus getting lost), later.  
I bought ONE thing. 
a vintage scale.



It was worth it.

Oh yes, definitely worth it, because that scale is so fun! Funny what you said about your mom. I feel the same way, but am only just now admitting it!

I adore elephants too and love love the canvas painting, hope you find out who painted it.
As for the salt and pepper corks you should try Ben Franklins. I saw some mini sized corks last week.
