This weekend was a local community's annual Aunt Tique and Uncle Junque sale. I thought is was just city wide garage sales. I did not realize dealers set up outside the local antique shops. I found a couple small Christmas gifts, some silver plate spoons for a good price, and this antique sampler ~ for a GREAT price. I can't believe it was still there this afternoon. The frame is modern but I have no doubt the sampler is antique. There are five alphabets. Four have no letter "J", but the one at the bottom does. No date, but signed Sally Parkhurst. The verse reads:
"A person modest meek and wise
Is lovely in a Christians eyes
Be sure thou quickly sin forsake
And Christ alone thy portion make".
This vintage papier mache bunny was only a buck so I couldn't leave it behind. It reminds me of the email that circulates every Easter where the chocolate bunny missing his ears says "What?".
I purchased this crock for only $15 a few weeks ago. Good deal, right? Only if you don't mind a crock badly cracked and missing most of the bottom. I don't :)
Still nothing on the frame . . . sigh.
Thanks for stopping by.Pug hugs :)
