159: silhouettes, tins and Beatrix Kiddo

And now for something completely different.

Not really.
Did I fake you?

More from yesterday's estate sale excursion:

When I saw these, I was sure I knew exactly what I would do with them: I would remove the pictures, paint the wood a glossy white, and use them to frame some swatches of my first strikeoffs ( not here yet, drat!)

But these silhouettes have enchanted me and I may have a hard time replacing them:

Don't they look neat all close up like that?

Ah, we'll see.

This is cool, reminds me of a violin or cello with all the scrolly wooodwork:

It seems to be some kind of corner shelf, only the shelf part is long gone:

I love this neat old cardboard-y print thing:

So moody.

And with some great chippy textures. You know how I love that.

And a horsie:

Eeek, this is all looking quite dreary. How about a little color?

Oh, yes. Vintage Christmas ornaments.

Lots of pink!

Yummy candy colors. mmmm.

And how about some orange, my fave?

A cool covered tin!

Thor likes.

Even the lid is awesome and perfect all by itself:

And oh man, when I saw another one? SCORE!

It really couldn't be any cooler. I mean, unless it was filled with something crazy awesome. But it wasn't. Still.

The colors! The design!   The lid!

And of course, I had to see how they looked together.

Isn't it neat how similar they are?  And how gorgeous they look together?

Oh yeah, and the pie tins:

Table Talk pie tins!

And for some reason, I grabbed these funny little corn-husk dolls:

And then I set them up like a film still from Kill Bill:

nope, I'm not done yet.
