Fall's first kiss

Greetings, dear readers.   It has been a lovely weekend and fall's first kiss has finally arrived to take the heat out of the long summer with a lovely autumn breeze and clear blue skies.  I have had the AC off for the last few days now and the windows open to capture this lovely fall weather.  Days like this, I want to pull out my bags of fleece and sit in front of one of my spinning wheels and spin fiber.   Soon, very soon.  Did a little junkin on Saturday and found a few unique pieces as well as lovely glass.  One of the fun things about searching for treasure, you never know what is going to show up.

Glass seemed to be the finds this weekend and one of the first pieces I found was this lovely, Elegant Depression glass footed server.  Etched crystal, it is in excellent condition.

Another lovely piece, this antique blue opalescent ruffle edge footed brides bowl.  
Circa 1900s.

Pretty, cut to clear antique decanter. Stopper is not original to decanter, but does look nice.  Circa 1900s

I am head over teakettle for Early American Pressed Glass (EAPG) pieces. This is called Cross Fern, Co-op #101; Crossed Leaves.  It's a Honey Dish from the 1890's by Co-operative Flint Glass Co.  This is now part of my EAPG collection.

Another EAPG piece. Heavy fluted bowl with Star of David in center.  Once I find the name of this piece I will revise the post.

 How cute is this adorable little creamer?  Lovely quadruple silver plate in as close to perfect condition as possible and just look at those sweet little feet.

 Nope, this is not cotton candy but a faboosh, Mr. John, Jr. vintage hat.  Never worn, deadstock item still has the price tag attached.

Price shows $35.00 - definitely a high end hat from the 1950s.

My favorite find this weekend, a fabulous set of antique photographs from the 1920-40s.  Some of these are hand tinted.

Love the clothing that they are wearing.

  My favorite image is "Emma" a woman dressed in men's clothing. Reminds me of Idgie from Fried Green Tomatoes. 

A terrific snake skin handbag from the 1940s is in lovely condition.  Very little wear.

Set of three french grammar and vocabulary books from the 1900s.

Did a little booth fluffing.  Pretty vintage crystal pieces and silver plate.

Brought in a nice selection of excellent quality, vintage men's hats.  
These are wonderful for fall.

 Antique crocks, vintage bowls and treenware are in my space at the Buford Queen of Hearts.

The holidays will soon be upon us.  Prepare for dinners, parties and good times.

Brought in some great antique, serving pieces. Victorian cold meat forks, sugar spoons and a grapefruit spoon.

Hard to believe that we are four months into the end of the year.  Children are back in school, the shadows are slowly getting longer, as are the days, and nights are getting cooler.  Loving that I could switch off the AC and enjoy the breezy cool of a late Indian Summer. Wishing everyone joyous days and blessings to you and those you love.  Sea Witch
