Treasure Hunting ~

Happy Sunday my Friends!

Last Thursday ~
Mizz Joan & I visited the Factory Antiques Mall in Verona Va 
and came home with some treasures ~

 ~ then, last Friday evening 
I went to our local auction 
...and came home with a few more !

here is my 
P L U N D E R:

ironstone tureen with lid (auction = 3.00)


i think that is a fig on the lid handle...


l o v e


whisk brooms from the antiques mall ~
...love the color of the one in the center...


little dundee marmalade jar to hold my paintbrushes…
(antiques mall)
can one ever have too many of these? :)

…it even has the paper label!



milk glass rolling pin ~ (auction)


vintage clip-board and iron plant hanger (antiques mall)



two super-long feed sacks that will become  bolster pillows for our bed (antiques mall)

 and my very favorite thing
...from the antiques mall ~

milk glass rabbit lid to a candy dish ~


I am on the hunt for the base for this…it looks like a basket
if you see one let me know!

and I've been punching ~ and punching ~ and punching away some more
on new finished goods, patterns and offerings for the Spring Open House on May 3rd…


peek a boo!
I'm hoping to offer a few of my original punched-face dolls on Ebay,
perhaps even one later this evening!

Charlie is here today ~
we are having corned beef and cabbage with carrots and potatoes…
...he brought a good loaf of black olive bread 
(my hands-down F A V O R I T E bread!!)
and we'll have cherry pie with homemade whipped cream for desert ~

Charlie has been gifting us lately, with things he no longer needs/uses/wants.
I will share some of the fabulous things he's passing down to us 
from his Mother & Grandmother very soon!
(which would have been Hannah's great great grandmother & great great great grand mother) ~

Have a beautiful day spent with folks who love you!

* Blessed be *
