New Treasures

Yesterday I drove into St Louis and went shopping at the Galleria ,bought a couple outfits then had lunch at Cheesecake Factory. I didn't have a piece of cheesecake either I was intending on going back after  shopping  some more and have dessert. However never got around to that.

I arrived soon as mall opened and by 2 PM  I had been to all the stores I was interested in so thought I would drive over to Wardson Woods Antique Mall on Manchester Road.

They always have nice things there and it's always a delight to shop there. First thing I seen was this 1800's purple transferware sugar bowl, in almost perfect condition, no chips or cracks and has both little handles. I was thrilled to say the least . It goes with what I have already in the  Staffordshire Charlotte pattern 






Then for a couple years I have looked for a small chicken or rooster lamp for my kitchen bar.I have a red toile shade I bought in Portland Oregon I guess 20 years ago and have kept it for this chicken lamp LOL.




Then I ran across some large coffee table books about impressionist painter which I like, Remember  recently I posted a picture of a painting I bought at an estate sale buy an impressionist painter, trying to copy some of the famous French  painters 





It was a good day shopping and ready to go again. Funny these books had a Goodwill price $2 on them and the dealer' s price was $9 which I was more than willing to pay since they are big books, and love seeing all the original painting in them. You can't buy some magazines today for $9

I have a peach cobbler in the oven and my timer is going off so must go for now . Just a quick show and tell post about my newest treasures

  3. Your chicken lamp was an excellent find, it looks pretty with the shade you had. How nice that you found purple transfer ware in a pattern that matched what you have.

    The books you found were a good price. I hardly ever buy
    any magazines anymore because they are just too expensive for what they are. I'd rather spend my money buying used hardcover books online by authors that I enjoy.

  4. The purple color transferware is new to me and I have enjoyed seeing how you and Bernideen both have been sharing pieces with us. They are very pretty! The lamp and shade go so well together. Looks and sounds like you had a good day.

  10. There is a mall in Lubbock TX that we like to go to when we travel to Lubbock. I noticed a sign the other day with construction that they are building a Cheesecake Factory there! I cant wait to try it! Lovely china bowl and you are right, magazines are getting very costly these days! However, I do love to look at them!

  12. The purple sugar bowl is perfect! The next shade darker is Mulberry. I love both colors. As for magazines, I take Simple Life ( nothing but primitives) and I do buy a farmhouse-look magazine sometimes to see what's going on with all that. I retag primitives that don't quickly sell as "farmhouse" and they sell !

  14. Oops. Hit enter by mistake! Everything here is just lovely -- and what a find with that tureen. Have you read "Luncheon of the Boating Party" by Susan Vreeland? Historical fiction based on the Renoir painting, a favorite of mine!
