Don't you just love this time of year when we can start getting our spring pretties out? Like my Hens on a Nest and my old baskets.
I know I have more someplace among all these treasures but will show a few today.
I don't ever remember my Grandmother having these but my Mom had lots of them and when our Dad had an auction after Mom passed away they all went to someone else house or shop. My sisters and I thought we got everything we wanted that was special to us but now we know we let a lot of treasures go.
This jadeite hen is not old it's a reproduction. I don't even know why I have it because I don't like reproductions of anything old but she is pretty
This one is old it use to have a cardboard bottom and had candy in it. The only way into it was remove the bottom to get to the candy. You can see them in antique shops
Baskets go right along with hen and chickens this is a Princess House basket my Mom gave all of us girls one and we still all have them. She use to sell Princess House and had china cabinets full of it. That is another thing that sold at the auction.
when she would buy us things like that she put it away till we would respect it and we RESPECT it now.
How Sweet The Sound and love the pink wish I had threw something in pink , maybe she won't care
