Last week's finds!

This past week, I picked up quite a few items.  I'll keep some and put others in my "sell" pile.  I have got to make selling a priority!  New treasures include: a print with Asian signature (artist?), a large white New England Pottery flower pot, a nice green planter, a United Nations graphic ashtray, pair of ladies gloves (beige), a small very dark teal dish, a 60s/70s recipe box,  heavy pottery ashtray (made in USA on bottom) and 3 glass dishes.

I also found a 50X52 floral tablecloth in very nice condition, and 4 pieces of silver/silverplate.  The 2 pieces on the left (serving dish, loving cup dated 1957) and the larger of the two bowls (by Gorham, dated 1957) on the right have not been cleaned.  I did clean the smaller bowl (by Wallace, dated 1956) on the right- look how great it looks!

Did you notice?

Did you notice that it took me almost ONE HOUR to figure out how to add a picture to a post?  It is a slow and painful learning process.  I finally downloaded Picasa- hope I remember the steps next time!

Inspired by Other great Blogs!

New to blogging, but LOVE so many vintage blogs I've seen!  Things I love: green pottery, white pottery, handkerchiefs, Christmas calling cards, aprons, barware, so many other things.... Visits to garage sales, estate sales, flea markets and thrift stores just make my day!
