I had a fun weekend... well outside of the whole digging up the electric wire thing... LOL
The weather was wonderful - especially Sunday - beautiful blue skies and a crisp wind - not to be confused with a gentle breeze... I had to take down one of my hanging plants on the porch - it was being abused by the wind. I do love to throw open windows on days like this and change out the air in the house. Fresh Air? I got it!
Did you know that I live in an area that boasts to be the Antiques Capital of the USA? There are a couple dozen antique markets/shops/malls/co-ops and outside venues hosting more than 3,000 vendors... all within a few miles of me.
I'm not much into fancy stuff... and I'm not interested in accumulating stuff I don't really need. But I enjoy poking around and seeing what I can come up with.
Clockwise from the bottom left... a vintage Cherry Stoner, an enamel pail with a small pour spout, a hammered aluminum covered dish with a 1.5 qt. oven dish, a pickle dish with a hammered aluminum cover, and a pretty little bowl with a scalloped edge. I spent a total of 40 dollars... and had lots of fun checking out Pine Hill Antique Mall - a place I hadn't been to before.
I haven't seen an enamel piece like this before and it's in great shape so it will get regular use in my kitchen.
My sister in law recently introduced me to vintage hammered aluminum ware.
I thought this pickle dish was sweet! I want some gherkins!
Nice little casserole dish - check out the flower bud for a knob on the lid... how cute is that?
This is a 'Sandwich pattern scalloped edge bowl'... I don't know what all that is suppose to mean. I just liked it and will enjoy using it.
I'll be interested to see how well it works... I've got 3 cherry trees that should be ripe late June and early July.
Wouldn't they be cute with little quilts on them? I didn't bring them home... but I could go back... maybe next weekend.
It would be easy to make a little mattress stuffed with leftover batting... LOL like I need something else to do.
But they would be cute... don't ya think?
