A Few New Treasures


My sister Jeannie was here last week and we shopped and shopped and shopped.  We also ate and ate and ate.  We have so much fun.

This is my newest piece of McCoy pottery.  Isn't she beautiful?  I don't know the pattern name but I'm sure my dear friend Claudia of Mockingbird Hill Cottage will figure it out for me.  It really looks pretty in the entry.


Found this darling little set of salt and pepper shakers in their own little basket.  Put it in the breakfast room on the baker's rack with all of the red and yellow things.


Got this gorgeous set of ME dishes.  It too, ended up in the breakfast room on the baker's rack.


Found this gorgeous vintage Noah's Ark at an Antique show.  Don't know if you remember or not, but I do collect Noah's Ark items and have quite a few.  In fact, I have enough ornament type pieces to do a whole Christmas tree which I am hoping to put up this year.


The side of this folds out and the top also is hinged.  All of the pairs of animals are metal on a little wooded base with metal wheels.  It is so precious.

This week has been busy.  Went to Laynee's school this morning at 7:15 for a Grandparent's Day breakfast.  Tomorrow I go to Day Care for the twins' Grandparent's Day breakfast.  Don't know how I'll do that with them in different rooms, but we'll figure it out somehow.

Today I ordered tickets to take the girls to the Ice Capades at the Tulsa State Fair.  Laynee and I went last year but we think the twins are old enough to go this year.  We'll see!  LOL

Have a great weekend.

    1. It is beautiful, isn't it? For many years I have collected the cream and/or off white McCoy. Now, ever so often, I find a piece that I like that is colored.

      Thanks for visiting.

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment. My great grandgirls are such a blessing to me. However, last night I took the three under 5 to the movie by myself. Big mistake. LOL I think the two year old twins are going to have to get a little older to go to the show.

      Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. I just knew you would know what pattern it was. It belonged to a really good friend of mine's Mother who passed away. I went over to help her with her Mom's stuff getting ready for an Estate Sale and of course, went ape when I saw the piece. I got it for $25.00.

      Have a good weekend.

  14. The Mary Engelbreit dishes are wonderful! I love ME items. The wooden Noah's Ark is cute also. How fun to have a Noah's Ark Christmas tree, Judy. I look forward to seeing it this year. I once had a fairy tree at Christmas, it was whimsical. I hope you had a fantastic day at the grandparent's day breakfast.

    love, ~Sheri

    1. I got the teapot for $25 which I think is a good deal. My sisters are both not really interested in old things but I am breaking them in slowly but surely. LOL

  18. Judy- You always find such great things when you go looking. I love the ME dishes and that Noah's ark is an amazing bit of folk art. Have fun at the school functions. My local grands are getting too old to do that sort of thing now...except for our little CJK. Loved doing those school function things.

    Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

  19. Judy,
    I didn't know that you were a Noah's Ark Collector, dear friend!
    That is one amazing Antique Set you've acquired!
    Love the chickens in the basket!
    Enjoy those "grands" as they grow all too quickly!
    Fondly,
    Pat
