I promised and here it is - the trove of treasure I bought from Linda at A La Carte.
The thrill of the hunt is sometimes surpassed by the thrill of someone shopping for you.
Linda is purging her collections and asked if I would be interested in them.
For several weeks she would send pics for me to choose.
Of course if you read her blog, you know it would not be Linda without a piece of pink McCoy pottery.
A pair of black glass creamers.
The blue sugar and creamer with the black rims are darling.
Then there are the cobalt blue cousins.
Dinner service for six with a sugar and a creamer to match.
Three creamers of various sizes.
A small bud vase.
A pair of S&P's.
Two serving plates and a small bowl.
Amber glass candy dish with the lid intact.
Two green sherbets.
A large family of kitchen tools.
My favorite is the aqua pot strainer.
Or it might be the tiny measuring scoop in the middle.
A whole clan of creamers.
Leaf dishes - probably bridge ash trays.
Bulova clock radio twins - fraternal, not identical.
Probably born mid-1960's.
Yes, they work.
I was able to pick up three AM stations clearly.
Both do have snooze buttons.
There was another box of assorted trays and other items.
When bloggers meet, you know there will be presents.
Linda's gift to me was so special it brought tears to my eyes.
She gave me several photographs of her paternal grandmother. (She had duplicates.)
So from baby ...
To young girl ....
To beauty queen of Ottumwa, Iowa ...
To a young woman with beautifully marcelled hair,
I present Miss Emmagene Sinclair.
Thank you so much, Linda. I will treasure these.
|My Etsy shop is on vacation so I can clean up a bit and clear out items lingering too long.|
