Five whole days of fabulous finds! And I only went out for a few minutes at a time. The deals were just waiting to be plucked.
I have been a good girl and have turned most of these items over quickly - bagged and tagged and sent away.
Don't want to clutter up what I have managed to clean up.
These two oak cabinet doors. Not a pair - two left doors. I wonder if someone bought two right doors and did not realize it?
A small Foley sifter - I am keeping this for a short while. Just too cute.
A small silver plate cup engraved Havana Lowell August, 1982. A trophy from a polo match.
A small pewter cup engraved WHS 1942. It may be a jigger - not sure.
All sitting on a vintage plant stand.
Why are so many pieces painted brown?
Two rattan tables - one small -one medium - sorta like Baby Bear and Mama Bear, but no Papa Bear.
A very dusty grapevine wreath. I think I like it better lying flat.
A metal planter box which will become a storage box in the craft room.
Look at that long-legged beauty of a plant stand. I am envisioning creamy white or my new favorite gray.
A lovely tray with real butterflies and florals framed within.
A creamy white ironstone platter - much crackled and distressed - perfect for something I have been making.
A Buffalo China bowl - keeping.
A girl's wicker purse - so sweet - I had one in the late fifties for Easter - keeping.
Three yards of the pale yellow calico in the background.
A red flowered dish towel.
Eight napkins edged with pink tatting.
Two really small boy's caps. The navy with gold trim a school cap.
The perfect log cabin for a Christmas vignette - not keeping. (Are you surprised?)
A leather wallet with MON engraved on it.
A plaster tool in the back.
I have several sheep prints and found two more.
First this old one in a lovely frame.
The print is called Indian Summer.
A large ink block print of a flock of sheep and a church.
The print is signed and numbered.
I love the bold graphics and greatly appreciate the skill it takes to carve a block this size.
Who in our household had the most fun this past weekend?
A neighbor came over to look at the treasures and instead of sticking it in my pocket, I laid it on the back bumper of Chucks' truck.
We loaded those cabinet doors and a few other pieces to drive the 17 miles to the antique mall. We had to drive over speed bumps to go around to the back, opened and closed the tailgate several times. We drove back to our house and then went out to eat. When we left the restaurant, Chucks noticed the case on the bumper and said,"Look someone dropped their phone - whoever found it put it here."
Yes, Chucks would not know the difference between a phone and a camera. He avoids techno junk more than I do.
I screamed, "That's my camera!"
We cannot fathom how in the world it stayed on that bumper through all the driving and speed bumps and unloading. I was very lucky since I had not downloaded photos in several days.
I am positive you would have been heartbroken and in deep, dark despair if I did not have any of my awful photos to show you this week.
You were very lucky!
