Thanksgiving Hunting and Gathering
I managed a few stops and gathered a little pile of treasures over the long weekend. Looking at this picture I realize I left out a lace curtain that was soaking in the sink. When the gathering happens over several days, sometimes things slip away before they get a proper portrait.
The tall green vase is for my son. The flowers next to it are old Lucite. I pried the velvet-rimmed portrait out of a corroded and dented copper plate I scored at The Bins.
This horse show ribbon was my favorite find. It is 1974 from the State of Jefferson. For those of you who are not from 'round here, it is an area in northern California, just below the Oregon border, that has for years proclaimed themselves to not be part of California and be their own independent state. Apparently they haven't had much success with that.
I researched this very raggedy little pot and it is Staffordshire blue transfer ware. It is apparently part of a child's tea set. It is very worn but might be a nice little placeholder in someones collection. I think it is sweet.
My son spotted this Dover book for me when I introduced him to The Bins. He hasn't been out "junking" since he was a little boy and I think I might have hooked him - lol!
