The chilly Low Country Crawl yielded several small treasures.Read about our day here!
I still have not been able to get the huge wardrobe from my Blazer so some treasures are hidden deep within her drawers.
An old Boston three-hole punch.
Weighs a ton!
Some fake hydrangeas and tote bags.
It seems everyone had tossed her crockery out for the New Year.
Here's the junk that made me joyful!
A very large white ironstone pitcher with green stripes.
The opening is not round, but oval.
A salt-glazed half liter beer mug.
An ironstone creamer.
A very fancy tea bag saver. Do not know the official name for it.
I usually just toss my used tea bags on a paper towel.
I have no class :>(((
Two MacNicol China cups and two Buffalo China cups.
A large Haeger USA platter in white - not a nick, chip or crack in her - over a foot wide.
I thought I had found the platter's twin in blue, but alas, they are the same size and basic shape, but not the same and this one is not marked.
I still like this one better for the color.
Four green bottles with their caps.
Do not know what came in these, but isn't the color great?
This may be something special.
I have to look it up, Unless someone out there has seen one of these.
Milk glass ashtray.
When held to the light it glows pinkish.
The back (if you could actually read it!) says it is OPALEX and the rest is in French.
I will let you know if it is trash or treasure.
A small oval plate (Sterling China) with the Department of the Navy seal on it.
A stack of MacNicol restaurant china.
One large bowl, two small platters, two oval bowls, and two small bowls.
White with those lovely green stripes.
Now for the quiz of the day.
What are these? White ironstone with green stripes. One has a small mark.
Too large for egg cups.
They were just thrown in with the vintage china above.
NOTE: Janice at Bluebell Woods found identical cups like these on eBay for double size eggs - Restaurant china. THANK YOU, JANICE! (They were $12.95 each.)
Now for the trivia question of the day.
How do you know it is cold in the South?
Everyone from miles around gets in his/her car and drives to Kroger! There must have been 300 people in there Tuesday.
And not a flake of snow or pellet of ice to be seen.
The high was only 24F degrees.
We have not unpacked winter clothes in two years.
I heard tonight the Polar Vortex is going back home.
Now for another bit of JOY for the New Year. I received a package in the mail from Vicky at Life on Willie Mae Lane.
The package was so cute, I hated to open it. BUT at last I did.
A wonderful JOY banner for 2014!
I love it.
Thanks so much, Vicky!
Carlene will be sharing the second Tuesday of January!
