One of my favorite thrifty finds last year.
I don't know why it's taken me so long to share it.
I've always been drawn to vintage hammered aluminum pieces, but I never appreciated their beauty or origins till I met Susan.
She has the most mind blowing collection I've ever seen and she is very knowledgeable about her passion.
We have the most incredible Goodwill store here in town and last fall I found this tray.
So clean and organized and I find good stuff there all the time.
This tray is so intricate in it's detail. I didn't even realize until I was cleaning it up how detailed it is.
At first glance it just looks like, ah yeah, fruits and flowers.
But when I started really looking closely I saw cherries and pears and strawberries and apples. Then I see dogwoods and thistles and daffodils and morning glories and lenten roses and daisies.
And then, up in one corner, a butterfly. Just one.
