Had a good day at the Tulsa Flea Market on Saturday.
Scored a big assortment of crocheted potholders - 27 to be exact. I see more of the crocheted potholder wreaths in my future. An old tin full of buttons, vintage linens and of course salt shakers.
Found this gorgeous little plate - it's only about 4" across. The transferware is beautiful and no damage at all.
I always buy this casserole holders. Don't know why but they just appeal to me. Someday I'll come up with an ingenious idea for them. I have all shapes and sizes.
Don't ask me why I bought this white goat creamer????? I just thought he was cute.
Isn't this just a darling little tea set for two little girls? It came with the two saucers, two dessert plates, two cups, sugar and creamer with lid and the tea pot with lid.
And then this child's set of dishes!! There is service for four and it's all there. There are plates, teacups, saucers, teapot, salt and pepper shakers, candlesticks, napkin holder, napkin rings and knives, forks and spoons! They are so bright and colorful. I don't think they are too old, but when Laynee gets a little older, won't we have fun with these?
And in the linens I bought, I got two of these. Do you know what they are?
They are Antimacassars.
These were used on the back of a chair of sofa to prevent a man's hair tonic from getting on the furniture. They sometimes have accompanying pieces to go on the arms of furniture.
"In many home will be found one of more of the oldtime "tidies" veritable heirlooms wrought by hands perhaps long since folded in peaceful rest and so all the more precious."
From The Renaissance of the Antimacassar in Needlecraft magazine date July 1921.
Monday and Wednesday of this week, I will be at the hospital undergoing some rather brutal testing. Please remember me in your prayers.
Till next time, Judy
