A Project Finished And A Mix Of Finds

I'm finely finished a project I was going to do since April and have a mix of finds to show.

The key holder project is an idea I finally made time for and just got it done.  My boyfriend likes to fish so it felt like a good fit.  Once I had my supplies and the board cut to size stained and varnished it only took minutes.  I then hammered in the nails hung the fishing scales on and mounted it on the wall and hung the keys on.

1st Row - Royal Canadian Mountie doll and a pot metal Elk.

2nd Row- Yellow pot by Dansk Design France.  This was a flea market find as I was walking around different people tried to buy it off me.  I held tight to it.
Vintage Melamine egg cup holders and a painted egg.

3rd Row - This powder compact is by Fleur De Glorie Talcum Puff Co. New York, U.S.A.
My sister bought me this Delft ornament in Holland while they were on vacation.
4th Row - This paperweight like so many I have is unsigned. Pyrex Casserole dishes the bottom one is Blossom 1 and the top one is Blossom 2.

This Pyrex dish is called Early American, the lid is missing so I'm on the hunt for another lid.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Great finds, Denise. I love your key holder board. What a creative idea!
    Mary Alice

  2. What a great hand-scale key holder. Totally love what you did with your project.

    Great finds, especially that amazing yellow French casserole/lid, no wonder people tried to buy it from you while you were shopping.


  3. Great fishing scale project! Totally unique.

  4. I love all your finds - the keyholder is an inspired idea! So clever of you!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  5. I was especially interested in the compact. We used to always carry a compact. Living in Illinois, we had access to the Case factory in Elgin...where compacts were made. Really enjoyed all your finds.

  6. I have that same Dansk casserole in the same yellow. It was one of the very few kitchen items my husband had when I married him. I think it came from an old roommate of his who inherited it from a family member. Despite it's hand me down background, I love it! I am your newest follower. Have a great weekend.

  7. Fun finds and I love the scales turned into hooks! :)

  8. Adorei seus achados. E o porta chaves é uma idéia muito boa e simples para reproduzir.

  9. What lovely things, Denise! The color of that Dansk casserole is so lovely. And who doesn't love those pyrex bowls. I have some of my mother's. Oh but that key holder is ingenious! And what fun to make it compliment your boyfriend's love of fishing. So clever!


Look forward to your kind comments.
