How fun it was to find treasures
with my mom as my co-pilot..
First let me thank you all for the prayers and thoughts
for my daughter.
She is out of the hospital and sees her surgeon today.
She had back surgery before, so not sure what is going to happen. I do believe though that the hospital milked her insurance for doing a few tests that was not needed.
Then released her just to see her own doctor.
Back to my antique finds.
This is an early child's boot form.
It is a rare one and it will hang in the spare room eventually.
This 6 gallon blue slip crock with handles
was a steal at $150.00
It is worth double the price.
Another rare find is this
mustard pantry box with bail handle.
Then I found this wood bucket.
The handle was missing,
so I might either leave as is or find a piece of leather
to add back to it.
The bottom has this mouse hole,
so no longer will hold anything.
Will be good for flowers or a Christmas tree.
For my rug hooking friends.
Lookie what I found!
Hooked on burlap the tag read it was hooked
between 1830 to 1870.
The back is just as nice too!
Another steal for $52.00.
It measures 24 x 19.
Although not my favorite colors of red and blue,
so nice to have for Autumn displays.
Colors are brown, black, greens and golds.
Plus I could not pass it up for this price.
Next I purchased this cast iron
Victorian dresser mirror that swivels.
I plan on using this for a display at the gift shop,
and will sell in the Winter time.
It is antique white, so the color is way off.
Finally these vintage sweet child's rubber boots.
Again these will be sold at the gift shop next Spring.
I love how they came with the pussy willows inside too!
I save up money all year just for this trail.
There were so many other items I wish I could bring
home, but my money ran out.
There is always next year for the thrill of the hunt.
and every now and then she would call
to her twin fawns.
This is what she would say.
We did not see the fawns that night,
but my mom has seen them in the past.
Although she was eating my moms flowers,
she said...they will grow back.
She loves seeing them!
She does have a fence around her veggie garden.
Do you have a favorite item you were able to score on?
Have a spectacular day my friends!
Antique Find Blessings To All!
