Blame it on the collector gene :)
Hooker friend Melissa and I went to a moving sale yesterday, about an hour and 45 minutes from me. It was worth the trip! If I had a bigger house, much more would have come home with me. Here are a few of my purchases. How could you not love this face? Jackie, the seller, told me her name is Donna.
She joins my antique blind bear, also purchased from Jackie in the spring.
The cradle was another purchase. Not antique but vintage. Sitting on an antique cupboard in the bedroom, it shares the vignette with an antique sampler and one of my favorite little cupboards bought years ago on eBay. I'm guessing the cupboard was lovingly built in someone's workshop. I'm sure it is one of a kind and has the most wonderful patina. I just love the scalloped top.
Two vintage hooked rugs in great condition. I just couldn't pass them up. I'm not a pink person, but these were too good to leave behind.
A Belsnickle to add to my collection. Not old and I have many similar, but none with a velvet coat.
Now what am I going to do with these quilt squares? I haven't a clue. The "X" is the front side and the back is a wonderful old homespun, all hand quilted. Just too cool to leave behind.
I believe this album to be from Victorian times. Not in very good condition, but fun to look through.
Things that were glued down are now just loose.
The album paper is brittle and falling apart. The price was right ~ free :)
I picked up a few other odds and ends. Melissa came home with many treasures, too. The back of my Rogue looked like it belonged to Sanford & Son. I did find out a 75" cupboard will fit in the back but the front passenger seat then has almost no leg room. Good thing Melissa doesn't have long legs!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
