Meanwhile I have been thrifting smalls.
Two train cases.
A large basket with beehive bobbins, an oil can, several graters (which you cannot see).
An aluminum colander.
Two dictionaries for paper art.
Two volumes of the Children's Classics. (I did not care for these when I taught because they are abridged.)
A graceful hand.
A large piece of a crazy quilt.
A pair of candlesticks with a handy bowl bottom.
I will be painting these.
Two over-sized Sunshine Bakery biscuit tins.
The neatest thing about these tins is they open on both sides.
Though I can imagine the curses that would fly if the bottom came off after filling the tin with goodies.
I love this book because:
I love Thomas Hardy.
I love the cover.
I love the typography used.
I love the librarian who thought to stick the card catalog cards in the back pocket with the checkout card.
I love the pages which had to be cut open by the first reader.
(See the ragged edges?)
Homer Laughlin Fleur-de-lis plates and a platter.
A gold tole bowl with limes.
A silver tray.
A primitive blue bench.
A child's Mexican chair.
A candle box.
A large funnel.
A rusty saddle stand.
A fifties woven spread in very worn condition - it was well-loved.
I am keeping this lovely green pottery bowl.
Does anyone recognize the potter's mark?
I won a giveaway from Melissa at Melissa's Antiques and it arrived this week.
A batiste towel with delicate embroidery.
Vintage Halloween treat bags.
Vintage Christmas cards and stickers.
One spool is already dressed for Christmas with a wee bit of washi tape and a bleached bottle brush tree.
Thanks so much, Melissa!
Hopefully I will be able to finish some painting projects today to show you this weekend.
