Middle of the Week Treasures


OK, you all know that Brenda and I like to go out at least once a week and "goof off" (usually at antique stores or malls-not shopping malls-antique malls).  So, this is what I found on our latest escapade.
 
A birdhouse, a pair of little Scotty salt and pepper shakers, a small porcelain church, a sweet little boy which I thought would be the right size to go in my Winter Fairy Garden, two sets of vintage salt and pepper shakers, lace, a framed hand-done original pen and ink of downtown Tulsa, a platter and books.
 
PS:  Don't tell, but, I got the pen and ink drawing for John for Christmas.  He loves things associated with Tulsa.
 
 
 I almost forgot my folding yardstick.  These are getting harder and harder to find.  Don't know if you can see or not, but the embossing and printing on the spine of the set of books is just beautiful.  They are different writings of Emerson.  They are navy blue.
 
 
Love this transferware platter.  It's an aqua green color - kind of different. (Excuse the paint drips)
 
So, needless to say, we had fun!

I think that the color of the transferware platter is very pretty. If you wouldn't have said anything, I'd have thought that the paint splatters were artistically on purpose!

I ordered two of those folding yard sticks from Etsy last year or so. I love those books.
