Welcome, friends, to another fun-filled Thrill of the Hunt post where I share my latest thrifty (and usually) vintage finds with you. Today it's all about four late-summer antique mall scores including a chinoiserie cachepot -- and they're some of my absolute favorites. So let's get started.


vintage white lamb sheep planter boxwood sprig

I have a real soft spot for vintage lambs: lamb cake molds, lambs covered in glitter with wreaths around their neck and vintage lamb planters. I was thrilled to find this vintage lamb planter in an antique mall in Michigan this past summer. I'll admit that my husband looked confused when I gleefully showed it to him. But he knows me and he knew that I had to have it.

I'm not sure how old it is, but I think I can safely say that it's vintage. I paid a bit more than I usually do for vintage finds -- $12. But I really do love it. Can you see the baby lamb beneath the mother sheep?

It didn't have to be a planter for me to love it. But it does give me more options that way. I can leave it empty or fill it for the seasons. Here I've used faux fall leaves and acorns to add a bit of color.

But for most of the year I can keep it filled with greens like these faux boxwood stems.

I found two vintage milk glass bud vases in another antique mall just down the road from the first one. I have somewhat of a growing milk glass collection, so I was very happy to find my first bud vases.Their $3.00 price tag had me sold.

Hoosier Glass is art glass made by Indiana-based Syndicate Sales, a glass-blowing company that was active in Kokomo, Indiana, in the 1970's and '80s. It is said that these bud vases were originally created for florists to display their stems. This vase is made in their "Swirl" pattern.

This bud vase, on the other hand, appears to have been made by Anchor Hocking in the 1960's. The pattern is called "Stars and Bars."

They go beautifully together. I took these pictures back in the summer. It was so nice to be able to showcase fresh cut flowers from the garden. Aren't they gorgeous? I just kept refilling them with fresh garden flowers all summer long.

I think this vintage chinoiserie cachepot will remain one of my favorite finds for a long time to come. It, too, was found on a table in a stall in a Michigan antique mall. I have to admit that I was afraid to look at the price -- these types of finds are usually expensive. But I was pleasantly surprised to find it was $10.00.

It's hard to tell from the photos but it's a pretty decent size -- it's 10 inches across if you include the handles and it's 7 inches tall.

 Speaking of the handles, I just love the delicate detail on these!

This cachepot has happily joined my other chinoiserie finds from Thrill of the Hunt #103. Funny how those collections seem to practically start themselves!

   Well, that's it until next time, friends!

Lovely items...and you display them so well! I love hunting Thrift Shops for good finds. Living in a retirement community we have access to a "Cash and Carry" sale a few times a year where people donate items and the sale helps to support people who find their funds running low. The last day of the sale is Dollar Bag Day. Oh, I have found such glasses that match my grandmother's pattern, little dishes, etc. Just found your blog and will continue to stop by often!

You got some great finds! That lamb is the sweetest and the chinoiserie cache pot is incredible! And one can never, ever have too much milk glass. I have a bunch of pieces myself. Stay well.
