Here is the first piece in my Jadeite collection. Serendipitously, I found it at my grandma's house, so I got it for free. One day, I just thought to look at her collection of dish ware, and there it was. It is a Hocking Wear Fire King Jadeite mug, from the 1960s. It was in good condition, but not mint. It is perfect for me, as I use it often and plan to use it for some time to come!
This is a simple little bowl that I crocheted for my bedside table. I keep eye drops and lip gloss in it, glamorous, I know! It was really simple to make, I just kind of decided how to make it as I went along. It only requires that you know how to make an adjustable or magic ring, and then you increase with single crochet.
My new, vintage buttons! I bought these at an antiques show, and I love them all! I will probably make some earrings out of a few of the buttons, but the rest will be sewn into projects this semester. Buttons are among my favorite items in the world, and these are just perfectly lovely.
What simple items are making you happy lately? I would love to see anything you have made or found or re-used!
