There aren't many yard sales or garage sales right now in Tennessee because of the weather, of course. But, I did manage to find a few cuties to bring into the shop yesterday. The planter is a 'real' McCoy. I turned it upside down so you could see the mark.....butttt, my camera isn't so great, so it doesn't show anyway. Since this new blogging venture has begun, methinks I should invest in a better camera someday soon.
I loved the vintage cream pitcher with the blue floral design. It has crazing and has turned dark around the bottom. But, to me, this just adds character. Then there's this basket??? Or is it a bee skep??? I don't know. Maybe some of you can tell me. Is it even old or just made to look old? Either way, and whatever it is, I thought it was an unusual piece and I grabbed it before someone else could.
The old kerosene can? Well, it just called my name. I suppose it's only use these days would be to grace some one's flowerbed by hanging on a Sheppard's hook, or just to sit by the door of the garden shed.......I dunno, but brought it to the shop anyway. And this lil jar of marbles??? Well, it just brought back memories. I can actually remember playing marbles when I was a kid. These in the jar are those large ones that we called shooters waaay back then. And, the jar itself is a cute 1/2 pint.
Soooo, even though it's SLIM PICKINS out there right now, you can still find some goodies.
