New Treasures

I was not going to go yard sailing today however I thought why not.
My neighbor and I are piling up things in our living rooms and great rooms to have a yard sale then here I am out driving around town buying more stuff LOL

Oh well this is things I collect and tuck away like another ironstone platter, soon as I seen it I knew it was mine


          Isn't she pretty?          12x16 inches

Then at another sale I found this brown & white transferware pitcher  . I just sold a lot of my brown & white ironstone to a lady , but this was to good to pass up $3.00, so I'll start another collection


7 1/2 inches tall and would hold a quart of anything good to drink

 Then OMG I found this lamp !! I see antler things everywhere in decorator books and magazines and pricey , NOT this one . So I drug it home and more than likely it will be either in flea market sale of mine or ? for who ever wants it , guess I could paint it all white and set it in the studio , but where in the world would I set it ?  It was just to reasonable priced to let it stay behind




      Now wouldn't you have brought it home for 50 cents????????

Then I passed another sign and said to myself I need to get home , because I am having a small diner party tonight just 3 of us anyway I am sooooo glad I stopped because these 3 ladies had all Chico clothing and 2 large tables of Chico jewelry . I love Chico jewelry so I bought a lot for myself , made me happy. They had lovely furniture and an elegant glass table with tall stools , but I was very happy with my finds for the day.

Not sure if I am in time for any Linky parties

  17. Great job on the transferware finds! I can't pass it up either, I found a few pieces this week myself!

  18. Oh, I love transferware! You did well with your finds. I don't see much of it around here where I live which is unfortunate! Thanks so much for stopping by with your nice comment and have a delightful rest of the week.


  19. Love that gorgeous transferware! I thought I was the only one who drags it in the front door, while hauling it out the back!! LOL
    But it's just so much fun!

  20. Wow -- how did I get so behind on your posts?! OMG, you found so many wonderful things -- that ironstone platter is TO DIE FOR. Also: I love your little rhinestone clocks in the earlier post! I have never seen those before in my shopping travels but now I am going to have to look out for them! You and I have very similar tastes! We could get into some trouble, uh huh!

  21. Love your finds, Janice...especially that stunning platter!

  22. Oh what great finds. I LOVE that Aesthetic Movement platter! I'm dying to know what you paid for it...or did I miss that? $3 for that pitcher is a steal to! I have found transferware the past two weeks at sales...nothing as wonderful as that platter though. My day should be coming! lol

    Enjoy it, it's beautiful!

  23. Oh, you found some wonderful treasures! I would have bought everything you did in a heart beat and what amazing prices! Thank you for joining TTF this week and have a wonderful weekend and a very happy Mother's Day!
