A Hopeful Sign
I took a quick run through the VOA yesterday spent a whopping 99¢ on the pink mirrored jewelry box. I like the patina on the mirror. This morning I noticed an estate sale in a reasonable driving distance so headed over to see if there was anything left. I bought another apothecary because I'm just stooopid on those things, some burlap, a few notions and some mostly newer buttons.
These tiny treasures will wait in the wings until I get around to more shadowboxes. The white candle holder looks like the more common resin ones but it actually ceramic and has a Trimont Ware Japan label.
This was my favorite find. A box of souvenir playing cards of the Southern Pacific Lines. The faces of the cards feature old photographs of scenes along the Sunset, Overland, Golden State and Shasta Routes. The pack includes a little booklet describing each scene. Just the kind of treasure I love to find.
I am taking this as a sign that the junking drought is coming to an end.
