How perfect is it that part of the quilt retreat weekend involved junkin' and antiqueing!?!?! And is there any better place to find some deals than small-town America? I was so excited to find this for $2.50!
A little covered jar in the Mason's Fruit Basket pattern! I have a couple other pieces in this transferware and I LOOOOOVE it, so I was quite giddy when I saw this on a shelf! It still has some sticky residue that needs removed, but I think it will clean up nicely!
It's one of those patterns that I could definitely get in to collecting and displaying. I love the brown with the colors....love it!
I picked up another great find while I was retreating, but it's seasonal, so I'll wait until the season to share! And besides, I've already got it boxed up and stored, and forgot to take a pic! So you'll have to wait until Christmas decorating begins!!
And my fellow retreater and pal, Kay, who is a rabid...er..uh...I mean AVID new milk glass collector, found this for me when she was out hunting!
A gloriously big glass pear! Hmmmm....wonder what I'll do with this? ha! I see a mercury glass pear in my future! Thanks, Kay! :o)
So those are this week's thrifty finds! Have you found something wonderful lately?
