A few items found

Busy few weeks and they all got away from me again. I forgot I had a few photos of items I found last weekend.  Not a lot of treasures because it is getting cooler now and the yard sales have all but come to a screeching halt.  This is the time of the year when I really miss living in the midwest...the fall auctions are always a delight.  I love schlepping through the boxes of items piled on the hay wagons.

Found this reproduction antique lock with keys. Works like it should and what fun to have on the back gate if you have one.  Someone appreciated it for what it was because it was in my booth for only 24 hours.

Found a few more blue transfer ware saucers and dessert plates.  I adore vintage/antique transferware and it always moves so quickly.

Pretty serving bowl cover.  So often you find these covers without the bowl.  I used to display a variety of these lids on my dining room wall over a Victorian sideboard. 

A pretty little bone china chocolate cup and saucer. Really fine china with rich cobalt blue and gold slip decoration. 

Found a pretty vintage candlewick cake plate.  It's hiding under the Phaltzgraff coffeepot and oil and vinegar jugs.
Any time I place a lamp on this Victorian desk, the lamp sells.  I've sold three lighting pieces in as many weeks so I moved the pretty  Tiffany Lamp over to it. Besides, I like the way the light from the lamp lights up the eyes on these china doll heads.  LOL

Decided to finally part with this magnificent hand crocheted bedspread.  I has this on an old brass bed in a guest room in the sprawling Victorian we had in Illinois many years ago.  I've been holding on to it for years and came across it as I was cleaning out a trunk.  Decided it needed to move on to a new soul who will love it as much as I did.  Perfect condition with no holes or repairs and is a beautiful ecru color.

So, I need to publish this post and get ready to leave for and apple orchard run. My honey and I are road tripping it through North Georgia today in search of the perfect Apple Pie and Apple Cider donuts.  Photos will follow.  Have a marvelous day everyone and blessings to you and those you love.  Sea Witch
