Weekend Finds

First I went to this antique estate sale here in town and everything was great old stuff. I had no intention of buying any more dishes however this green transferware covered casserole dish was priced very reasonable and I liked the pattern. So home it came with me to set on a shelf and collect dust.
The ladies pictures in the background is my Grandmother on the right and some of her girlfriends when she was young and not married. She was born 1907. The brown transfeware pitcher was her sisters born 1905. My Aunt Ollie loved antique dishes                                                          
Then this lamp was my surprise for the day.I love the lamp shade pattern. I have several old books with this pattern on the covers and page ends. I have it setting on a small leather book. It's a very small lamp.
I had been looking for a large wooden dough board and maybe this is a knockoff maybe new? however I liked it size. I might add some lemon oil to darken it a little. No white paint for her now?
This cool Fox pin has a rhinestone tail and head and collar then enameled red tongue and ears. I got it at a yard sale where 2 ladies had everything vintage or antique. I wish I had made it to their sale earlier. I did get a lot of little things there, like lot rhinestone jewelry for projects. He was priced to come home with me. All the jewelry was 25 cents to $2.50. He reminds me of that song out last summer What Does The Fox Say. Remember it ?

That is some of my finds for last weekend. 

Linky Parties I joined in

  4. Janice, I love the green transferware and fox pin! So what if the dough bowl may be a little newer, who knows for certain? It's a great shape, and the lemon oil will be good for it. Enjoy your new treasures!

  5. Love thaypt pretty tureen in green.. What do you actually do with the dough bowl. I never heard of that. Happy weekend great finds. With love Janice

  8. Great finds, Janice. I adore that little lamp! No white paint for the dough bowl. It is perfect just the way it is.

  9. How could you pass up that beautiful green transferware! Glad it came home with you. The fox pin is great with his fluffy tail.

  10. The big wooden bread bowl was a treasure. They are hard to find! Love that cute fox too! Hugs!

  11. Janice,
    Great finds! Transfer ware of any color always appeals to me. My grandmother's name was Ollie Bee so I was happy to see your Aunt's name was also Ollie. That is one of those names that is no longer in style.


  12. Beautiful collections. Looks good.

  13. I would not have been able to resist that green transferware either. Great score on the dough bowl! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  14. OH GOSH YES!--our lil granddaughter loved to sing that crazy song! LOL Love that green dish...i probably would've bought it too! The pin is adorable, reminds me of my aunt's old jewelry back in the 60s. How has your summer been?

  15. Hi Janice, great estate sale. Loving your new green transfer ware, gorgeous.
