Good morning!

🕵️‍♂️(#Antiqueblogger)
I am a nickel short & a day late but here is my #TrinketsandTreasuresTuesday
photo.☀️ Tomorrow’s high temperature for Lexington, KY is 90 degrees-summer is ending with a bang! Back in the day I am sure these old hand fans would be put to use. 🌟In the LUCITE Tray are the following items: Boy and Girl fiqurines ‘Made in Japan’ to look like Hummels . ⭐️Does anyone know the Star Wars character? ⭐️The two iron items with a wire-hook were for holding store receipts, invoices,bills, etc. These were made to be hung on the wall and were often used in old general stores. ⭐️One of my favorite things is the “Three Wise Monkeys: Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil.” Great advice! ⭐️The pouch is a Bull Durham tobacco sack that is full of old ginseng. I don’t have a clue as to how I ended up with that?? Beside the postcard is a couple pieces of the ginseng. ⭐️Two buttons. ⭐️The small ‘Hand Tray’ is an ashtray but works well as a pin tray and is holding a double horseshoe pin and a bugle pin.⭐️The round butter-dish I found today. Although in great condition I bet it’s held some homemade butter back in the day. 🌟🌟Other items displayed on table: A compote that is used for holding wine corks but if I had my druthers it would be full of some kind of fruity perserves. ⭐️Last is the hand painted 🏈 football player called THE WINNER signed by Carl on the back.

so clearly i have nothing better to do than to drag out all my old stuff and style my dining room table. 😂.carriewf and @aksstevens always have such beautiful tablescapes when i visit, so i'm trying my hand at it. another way to layer a room and i'm really hoping it keeps me from piling clutter here. and i get to live with my grandmother's transferware dishes and silver rimmed glassware every day. #camelliacottagechronicals #tablescapes #buyvintagesavetheworld #blueandwhitetransferware #englishcottagestyle

Buongiorno, la giornata inizia pianificando gli impegni della settimana. Vi auguro un buon lunedì


Good morning, the day starts planning the week's commitments. I wish you a good Monday

Mondays make me think of a song: “Monday, Monday” by the Mamas and Pappas. What a great song! (🌟The platter in the middle is “Washington Crossing the Delaware.) If you are dealing with Hurricane Florence I hope the worst is behind you. .
.🐜Hope your Monday is a good one!🙌

Sometimes when I am scouting around (antiquing) I will run upon things that I am not looking for or collecting but when I see the price I think, “Oh Yeah! I have to get this!” Old timers use to say, “Something for Nothing” or call them “Sleepers.”I am guessing some of you know what I am saying. ⭐️So here are my Newest-Old Vintage things that were sleepers: On the box is a *hand-painted “White Blossoms” plate marked made in Germany. *The bowl is a Bavarian hand-painted “Yellow Apples” bowl with gold trim edge. *The crystal plate in front of bowl is a “Pretzel” sandwich plate made by Indiana Glass during the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. I use to keep this “Pretzel” pattern in the shop and kept it in the Depression Glass section. On the “Pretzel” plate is a *Victorian Ruby Flashed Glass Souvenir Milk/Cream Pitcher that says State Fair 1905 and the initials A. D. S. on the front. *The blue blossom is a HandBlown glass Lily flower holder from an old Epergne. *The basket pattern glass jar has a wire handle and a zinc lid. Since I’ve never seen a jar exactly like this I thought this needs to come home with me. (Remember all these things are sleepers!) *Now beside the jar is a “Swanky Swig” glass made by Hazel-Atlas for Kraft beginning in the 1930’s. James Kraft developed a processed cheese spread that came in a “Swanky Swig”-a reusable glass container. There were many different designs on these glass containers. This one is “Bachelor Button” design and production ceased on this pattern in 1948. *The little red/white stripe glass is a “Shot Glass” which I thought was cute. *Last but not least is the brown flowerpot made on a saucer. It has the number 31 handmarked on the bottom and is an early piece of Bybee Pottery. 🙌

Hey lovelies, how has your Saturday been?
I've had a lovely lye in this morning then gardening, cleaning and reading my magazine in the beautiful autumnal sunshine. Tonight I have a whole evening to myself as hubby is out. So it's going to consist of pampering, strictly, and maybe xfactor! Have a wonderful evening everyone 🍷

We had only just started talking about moving in together when Mr Rhubarb and I went on holiday in the Lakes and I espied this @thomaskentclocks It was immediately purchased as I envisaged us having a duck egg blue kitchen. Roll on however many years (ssshhh) and the clock still takes pride of place in our cottage kitchen. I especially love it at this time of day when the late afternoon sun streams in off the village green and bounces around the kitchen walls between the beams. I am a big believer in buy what you love, what will give you joy every time you use it and one day it’ll fill a perfect spot in your home. .

When I started as an antique dealer it was as a hobby in the late 1980’s. (Yes, I was very young.) I started with a booth in an antique mall and really had fun with it. It was a good diversion-a hobby, from my real job as a teacher which I also loved! I remember my Dad told me that McCoy Pottery would be a good thing to look for and that it would really become popular in so many words. How did he know this? He often went to auctions-country auctions and heard McCoy would be a good thing to get for resale. I did find lots of McCoy at good prices and it was a good seller. As my interests grew as a dealer, I ended up with a shop. McCoy cookie jars, flower pots, Wall Pockets, Jardinieres, and more, were fairly inexpensive and much more plentiful than today of course. I had a couple of McCoy price guide books and enjoyed learning about the pottery. So after 27 years, I retired from my hobby as an antique dealer. However, I still enjoy collecting! What I realize is how much I appreciate McCoy Pottery! So now when I say it’s a keeper, it really is! Was my Dad’s advice wise? Of course.

🐜Have a good one!👋

So good when Mr C is on holidays from work 🤗 The @scentsy 'shimmer' scent in the burner smells delicious 💜

🕵️‍♀️(#Antiqueblogger) ‘Cockatoo Parrot Bird,’ Albany Foundry Doorstop...I found this at one of my favorite shops “In One Era” in Key West. This one made number eight to my doorstop collection but I thought he was worthy of his solo moment!————————————————

What can I say, I like smalls y’all! Anywho, here are some things for #TreasuresandTrinketsTuesday. ⭐️The Indian is a bank that I found recently. Since I had never seen one like this before, I went for it. My brother collects Native American artifacts-arrowheads, tomahawks...so I thought it would be a cool Christmas present for him. Wouldn’t it look neat with his collection? You know antiques and collectibles can make great gifts. Now will I actually depart with it and give it away? Maybe...?⭐️The pyramid is a paperweight that has Maslow’s Heirarchy of Needs embossed on each side. Yes it’s a keeper. ⭐️The acorn is an old match holder made to be hung on the wall. ⭐️The wrist watch is a Mickey Mouse 50th anniversary watch. I have always liked Mickey. ⭐️The laundry pin with turquoise on the head has a key ring attached. .
.
.🐜Happy Tuesday!🙌

🕵️‍♀️(#Antiqueblogger) I bought another McCoy Pottery Jardiniere this weekend-like I really needed it. There’s something about jardinieres that always grab my attention. ⭐️The latest is a 1955 McCoy Pottery Quilted Pattern 8.5”Jardiniere with gloss aqua glaze. ⭐️⭐️The two Jardinieres on pedestals are 1940’s Nelson McCoy Basketweave Pattern.

🐜Have a GREAT week!🙌
