Also a pair of matching desk lamps that were just too cute to pass up and a sweet lil' ironstone pitcher. Most like the plain white, but I have a thang for the ones with delicate faded flowers, being the Nature lover I am...
Never pass up a frame with a battered patina...or a baby doll head with no eyes...he'll be part of a special project in later posts, but the pitcher, even with chipped spout, will hold a bouquet just perfectly and the big ironstone vessel, missing it's lid, but making a grand statement with it's pale blue flowers, just needed a home(with me). The Flow Blue covered dish is terribly stained on it's bottom, but the top is perfect...too bad the top isn't stained as well, then it would be perfectly 'grunged'! Also, a sweet set, a cup and a little vase with turn of the century charm and of course bearing the flowers I love so much. An item I don't find much, a set of 6 silver Deco knife rests...way cool...and wonderful oval frame.
One of the advantages of cabin fever is the remote chance that one gets to escape the dilemma if one is quick in between snowfalls. First you turn on the Weather Channel, then you load up the heathen, fire up the steed...and point 'er in the right direction!
Although I'd rather be antiquing with the gals down in Texas doing all the open houses in warmer weather...but alas...Iowa needs me here...right?!
I'd like to tell ya where I went...but then I'd have ta kill ya...right Barb!
