Elena from ‘a casarella (Instagram: a_casarella) shared this brass deer figurine that completely stole my heart. One of these days, Goodwill, one of these days you will have brass deer and I will snatch them all up and run (after paying for them, of course). Elena’s Instagram account is so pretty – head over for a visit and follow along!
And finally (although I could seriously post like five or six others because it’s THAT hard to choose), I just had to share this crazy awesome panther planter that Stephanie from Sandpaper and Glue (Instagram: sandpaperglue) scored from her town’s online auction. Because now I want one too.
I’ve had this little brass bottle opener for a while now. I picked it up at Goodwill for around $1 because I have this bad habit of picking up every brass piece I find, and because I loved the little hand shape!
So while I writing today’s post, I decided to Google and see if I could turn up any information on it…
Did you see that? That’s my little brass hand bottle opener. And that’s a price tag of $450. Here’s another more modestly priced at $235. And here’s Kelly Wearstler’s knockoff version.
P.S. Did I just one-up Kelly Wearstler? It just got real in here. Eat your heart out, K-Dubs.
P.P.S. That’s my affectionate celebrity nickname for her. It’s like ScarJo.
P.P.P.S. But seriously, I love Kelly Wearstler.
THIS IS WHY I HOARD, people.
Carl Aubock is the whimsical Austrian modernist designer who loved turning little brass hands and feet into household objects. His designs rock!
Am I selling mine anytime soon? Probably not. If you want to give me $450 for it though, it’s yours. I will, however, probably retire it from daily use as a bottle opener. 😉
Well, now I want to hear from you! Did you thrift this week? What did you find?
