Kathy's Play Day
Last Saturday I took a whole day to just play - which means blowing off the housework and just junking. It was great! I hit two estate sales, the VOA and Nina and Joe's.
I'm sorry if these pictures are a little garish looking. I'm having issues with the white balance setting on my camera and trying to figure out where I'm going wrong.
A sweet set of Westmorland candlesticks, a dried corsage and a couple of crochet hot pads to add to my collection.
The candelabra is just pot metal but that doesn't detract a bit in my eyes. The old cobalt jars are proving more challenging to clean that I expected. Love love the blue velvet pillows!
Oh my gosh - a little girls vintage blow-up pink crinoline. I haven't tired blowing it up but just as pretty, either way.
A very vintage bunt cake pan, a tape measure for my collection and a plastic box I bought just because of the jadeite color. The blue and white check are pillow cases and they have already been re-purposed on my patio chairs.
I have a collection of those old brass hose nozzles. Go figure. I didn't get a good close-up in any of these photos but that iron thing below the candlestick is my THIRD cobbler's shoe anvil. We all know what that means.
There is the toe of that cobbler's tool again. A tray of tiny perfume bottles because I can't resist them and a lone Made in Japan duck S&P without its mate.
A "Millie" goat with her kid, grazing on a vintage green hankie and under a cloche, to boot!
Vintage lamps make me weak in the knees. I haven't decided yet if these will be moving on or just staying with me, at least for a while.
One VERY filthy vintage Brownie camera that I already have a plan for.
This last photo is really awful due to the white balance issue but it is a pair of great white quilted pillow shams that are already listed in my Etsy.
Man, that was a fun day just plucking the junk!
