Saturday was a damp and rainy day so I hit my favorite haunt early in the morning and then met up with Sis for lunch and some "Goodwill" hunting. Part of the fun is the chase and I'm always fascinated by what treasure pops up. First find of the morning was this lovely Victorian Persian rug.
Hand knotted and vibrant colors make this a pretty little decortive piece.
I love these tapestry doilies. Patinaed gold bullion lace finishes this pretty little doily nicely.
I can sell footed compotes all day long and this lovely Reed and Barton will be no exception. This was a Goodwill find.
How sweet is this set of Victorian apothecary jars? Hand painted and marked Gauze, Cotton, Aspirin and Vitamins.
Adorable vintage Jolly Jinks child's plate. The skiing bears in the center of the plate have long since been washed away, but their ghost images live on with the dancing squirrels and rabbits around the plate.
A huge and very heavy antique splatter ware pitcher. The palest shades of mint green and browns accent this pitcher.
Found a huge bag of fruits and vegies at my local Goodwill. They are sturdy with a nice weight and look like the real thing.
Pears and apples accent a vintage copper hammered tray, coffeepot and sugar and creamer.
Faux peppers and avocados look like the real thing and are such fun to decorate with.
Another Goodwill find, this great hand made paper shade table lamp.
A lovely, Alexandria Reed crystal diffuser. Rich purple tones in a heavy crystal.
Hey Loosey! You have some es'planing to do. Brilliant red polished cotton apron with a side oven mitt with pretty roses. Very 1950s.
Sis and I had a great time on a rainy, damp day laughing, gossiping over lunch and schlepping through our local Goodwill. We always have such a fun time together and you would think that we rarely see each other...even though we live just 8 houses apart from each other. Hope everyone has a wonderful week and blessings to you and those you love. Sea Witch
