The Tale of the Hartholz Fondue Pot and the Quirky Mega Brooch.....

I demonstrated some real self control this week in my thrifting adventures. Would you believe I passed on a vintage sheet set and Nellyware. True story, I had them at the counter ready to checkout and made the call at the last minute not to take them. Many deciding factors ran through my mind in those few moments, but I'm pleased I did. One has to be discerning and critical when on a mission to achieve goals at present.

But despite that it's always a treat to pick up vintage items that show the tell tale signs of never being used like this Hartholz fondue pot. It still has it's sticker on the bottom of the pot. Look see! It's a shame though that the stand and forks were no where to be seen, but there was no way I was leaving this beauty behind.



On the other end the scale and a totally random find, sometimes you just can't pass up a quirky little something for fifth cents. This little sweetie has been turned into a mega brooch.


There's just something about her and I couldn't leave her to languish at the bottom of a craft box. Now she will be much loved and have many an outing I'm sure.

I know, I know it's pretty awesome, if I could just find a burner now and then you come across the isle for a fondue night.
