Hi folks! Here are a few fantastic finds
I thought I'd share with you. I think I've told you I collect vintage Revere Ware. Those lids were 50 cents each ;) The old blue-banded stoneware bowl was $12 :) We went to our very first antique auction a few
weeks ago and came cross some items that
are certainly worth mentioning, namely this
beautiful table cloth - it's HUGE. I've never seen one this long AND it's been HAND appliqued, with the pieces "turned under" and stitched.
I can't imagine doing something like this on
this large of a scale. As large as it is,
it only has two small stains that I believe I can remove.
I walked into a newly opened local thrift shop and found THE MATE to a single pewter candle holder that I bought two states over, about a year ago... imagine my surprise and sheer JOY ;)
But that's the way I buy them... loners, although I love buying them in pairs when I can. And who knows, I just may find the mates to these two one day ;)
While at the auction, this box can up on the block. I initially wanted it to re-do as a toy box for my granddaughter's stuff in my living room...
but it's super heavy, and somehow, my husband has laid claim to it, putting it right in his "Man Cave."
You can even see the letter "A", over on the left side, I think I can see a B and C.
The "helmet" bucket needs a good cleaning,
but it will be used to hold pieces of 'fat.'
You know you're "Country" when you call
pieces of old pine kindling wood 'FAT.'
And one day at the GW, I found this beautiful dish, mostly likely used to hold flowers that were possibly sent to a hospital patient. Not a chip on it! Now, you know when I laid eyes on it what I thought... 'That looks my like Sweet Pepper Rose!' How appropriate! So after the holidays, y'all will be seeing this dish, filled with green ivy as my header photo.
I have some more great stuff to show you,
but that'll be another subject for another day.
Happy Sunday, Y'all!
