I did not expect to bring any antiques home from California, but found a few special treasures at prices I was willing to pay :)
It is so hard to get a picture without the glare of the glass. The reflection to the bottom right is my arms and camera. Though faded, about 80% of the sampler is in pretty good shape. The bottom not so much, but for the price, I could not pass her up.
I am not wild about how it is framed, but you can see that it has been in this frame for a long time.
Circa 1860-1870 English toothpaste pot. The first one in my small collection that is colored. Quite a few chips but I am no purist. It's sitting on a piece of French linen also purchased in California.
Some of you may remember my obsession with stone fruit. You can read about it here. I haven't added to my collection in a few years, but was so excited to find the half peach and half apple. I never thought I'd ever own any half fruit. I thought it was a good deal, but not as good as the deal Julie got in Arizona a couple years back. (Almost free at a thrift store!)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
