This was 2010
Well Tuesday this week I went up for a visit ( Lee's Summit Mo) she ask me to come up said she was cleaning out storage closets and had stuff for my next yard sale.
As we we loading my yard sale boxes I was not excited at all with what I had accumulated so far. Lots deer antlers from her husband's past hunting trips, lots electrical cords, Tupperware that was our Mom's , covered casserole dishes with body of ducks for covers all white china just stuff
!!!!!! Then she said Jan do you want this to sale?? It was the blue plate/ flat soup bowl I had wanted so bad !!!!!!! since 2010 I grabbed it fast and yelled not to sell I want it to keep
It's the wavy blue edges that make it so elegant to me. I took these pictures about 6 am this morning and when it's dark outside my little Sony camera does not take good pictures even with the flash as you can see.
The colors are still so vibrant
AND THEN she gave me her collection of old vintage and antique buttons !!!!!!!!!!!!
There is mother of pearl lots metal mirror back buttons and china calico buttons
there is some glass buttons. Lots military uniform buttons.I was more thrilled with the buttons than the plate /soup bowl
I haven't taken the time to go through all of them and separate them into my containers of buttons however plan on playing with them this weekend i'll take pictures and share later.
Linky parties I joined in
Hi Janice! Love the plate! You got lucky on that one right! :) And more buttons, I know you love those! Have fun sorting them.ReplyDelete
Talk to you soon,
I have no idea what the pattern name is, but it is so lovely!ReplyDelete
Beautiful plate. Unusual striped lines. Bet you were tickled with the buttons. I am selling buttons and dish ware in my booth - getting rid of many things. They are buying the buttons, but the dish ware is sitting. Maybe if I put free on them.ReplyDelete
That plate is absolutely beautiful...glad your sis finally gave it to you. The button collection is superb!! I am sure there will be a lot of pretty surprises inside :)ReplyDelete
Oh how wonderful! This was a great day for you! The buttons look very unique. Hope you do another button post. That plate is lovely. I think I saw one similar in my antiquing travels. I know nothing about it though!ReplyDelete
That is such a wonderful plate, I could see why you wanted it. So happy it is finally yours. And receiving the buttons is such an added bonus.ReplyDelete

Janice, that bowl is gorgeous. Both you and I love blue as well as religious items. And, the buttons!!! What a haul. Hope she calls you soon and is cleaning more. I have a friend in the bootheal of MO who says she will send me her buttons when she can get out to the shed to get them. She is getting forgetful, so I will have to remind her as soon as it gets warmer. Yes, please share more buttons when you go through them. Love that soup plate so much, too. Blessings, Nancy CarrReplyDelete
Who made your soup bowl? Sometimes every piece isn't marked with a makers name.
