Miss Mustard Seed’s Wuslu Pick of the Month & Giveaway!

Marian ParsonsMiscellaneus851 Comments

It’s that time again! Once a month, I get to scour wholesale catalogs and pick out something that is my very favorite. Wuslu then sends me one and makes it their featured deal of the day.

When I spotted this chippy pie safe I knew that was “the pick.”  It reminded me of one I’ve been oogling over at an antique mall, but I never bought it because it was too expensive and pretty rickety.  I love the grass-green color, the authentic-looking chippy paint and the potential…oh, the potential of this piece.  It can sit on a counter or buffet or it can be hung on the wall. 

Of course, it would look fabulous in a kitchen or dining room, but I think mine is going to end up in my half bath.  The pop of color and worn finish will look great against the bright white bead board.  Just look at this finish…



I don’t know how they achieved that flaked look, but it is my mission to figure it out, so I can duplicate it (and share it with all of you!)


If you’d like to purchase a pie safe, head over to Wuslu before they are sold out!

Here’s a preview of the deal-of-the-day tomorrow.


This tool tote is so great for a buffet or as a drinking glass caddy or as a way to store crayons and brushes on a kid’s craft table.  Another versatile piece and you will have a chance to purchase this one tomorrow.



AND…it would be a pick-of-the-month without a giveaway, right?  There will be two winners for this giveaway.  One will win the pie safe and the other will get the toll tote.  Here’s how to enter…

Visit Wuslu’s history page, come back here and leave a comment letting me know which past item is your favorite.

For a second chance to win, become a follower of the Wuslu on Pinterest and leave a comment letting me know you’ve done that.

 This giveaway is only open to those living in the continental US and readers who are 18 and older.  The giveaway for both items will run through Saturday, November 12, 2011, at midnight PST and a winner will be announced Monday.  If you purchase the pie safe or the tool tote and are the winner of that item, you will receive a full refund.


I hope you love the pie safe and tool tote as much as I do!  Good luck!

  2. Just one favorite? Impossible… either the Large Metal Crate or the Feedsacks or the hanging metal basket, any of the signs… it’s all fun!

  3. I love Wuslu. My favorite is when they do the “surprise boxes” I ordered 3 last time and it was like Christmas. Each box was really great and I love surprises.

  4. My favorite was the dough bowls and I was super sad that I missed out on that one. 🙁 I have bought other fabulous things though. 🙂
    I am also following on Pinterest!
    I hope its ok that I put both of these on the same comment.

  5. There are so many lovely, unique items. I really liked the metal rolling laundry cart. However the green pie safe is amazing!

  6. I liked the {Get Organized} Farmhouse Rusty Wire Baskets, Set Of 2…

    Would love to win the Tool Tote!!

  7. I love the big wooden dough bowl they offered! My HISTORICAL favorite! 🙂
    The two items you write about today are great too!

  8. My favorite is a toss up between the Dutch Printing Press Tray and the Rustic Iron Six Candle Chandelier. Love them both!

  9. I love, love, love the green pie safe. Oh, c’mon, WHO AM I KIDDING?? I love the large 2 piece farmhouse pig canvas print. OKAY, OKAY, let’s get real. The fine people at WUSLU could send me a big dust-bunny from their warehouse and I would be so happy, my skirt could fly up.

  10. I love the boutonniere knobs and the stool I ordered and received a couple of weeks ago but, the knobs have to be my fave!!!

  11. I have never heard of Wuslu before and I love EVERYTHING. But the Halloween crows wearing hats? Awesome…

  12. The Boutonniere Knob set! I remember seeing something similar in a Victorian _______ catalog and wanting them so badly. I don’t have anywhere to put them now, but still adore them.

  13. I absolutely love the severely rusted factory metal bins. So beautiful! Thanks so much for another fabulous giveaway!

  14. I can only pick one favorite from their history?? I LOVE the white door knobs, and I even wanted to order a set or two, but I saw it after the sale ended. 🙁 And I love the pie safe!

  15. Wow, how do I pick? I love the white knobs, and the Botanique Feedsack stool, and the Pie Safe, but I really love the….. ok ok the Pie Safe!

  16. I really like the wood mirror with antique finish by creative co-op. And I’m now following Wuslu on Pinterest! 🙂

  17. First, love your blog and thank you so much for the chance to win either of the prizes. Wuslu past: the wire laundry cart is my favorite thing ever. I sell antiques and foolishly (twice) sold the prototype for this wonderful thing. Would love to win the pie safe for my daughter. Her favorite color! She would keep towels in her bathroom in it, I think. No blog yet and I don’t know how to get on pinterest. Hope I figure it out before the deadline.

  18. I love the galvanized numbered canisters!


    The night before you paint, put Vaseline on the spots you don’t want the paint to stick to. The next day paint as usual. Where the Vaseline was applied the paint will not stick. LWipe off any excess Vaseline after the paint dries and lightly sand the spots. Use a paste wax, (I use Bri-Wax, but I know you are a big fan of Annie Sloan – either will work) clear or tinted, to seal the wood where the paint did not stick and give the painted surface an aged look.


  19. I loved the numbered pails! Honestly it is hard to really pick as they have so many amazing things!

  20. I love the set of 3 Cloches with iron stands (a previous MMS pick!). I still also love the French menu board that they had over the summer. Thank you!

  21. sorry i missed out on this one… {Back By Popular Demand} Cloche With Iron Stand, Set Of 3. love the 2 giveaways as well!

  22. I love your blog! This is a fabulous giveaway. I really like the French bakery wire mesh dome with tray.

  23. i saw that pie safe in the email from wuslu and ohmyword, i was so happy just to look at it. it’s practically perfect in every way, like mary poppins. 🙂 i want it real bad. 🙂 …wouldn’t mind that cute little caddy though. wouldn’t mind that at all.

    as for my favorite from their history page, i’d have to say that pie safe is the winner. i’ve seen several things come through my email and that is tops! i also really liked the metal basket with glass bottles. adorable.

  24. On every page I said “Oh, that’s my favorite!”, until I saw “IT”…The You Are My Sunshine Subway Sign, Oh My, I sang this to my daughter every night for years and now she’s 23 and just got engaged 2 weeks ago! Love, love, love! And I pinned the caddy on Pinerest but I couldn’t get follow to work. I’ll keep trying!

  25. I have two favorites,….the vintage farmhouse drawer AND the sock organizer. I love anything that helps organize!!!!

  26. My favorite…it’s hard to choose just one but, Id have to say the wire baskets….or the farmhouse drawers…oh I can’t decide!!!

  27. I would LOVE the Chippy Green Pie Safe – my dining room low bookcase would have this in the middle, filled with vintage Christmas ornaments – so perfect! Crossing my fingers and saying a prayer…
