JUST CHECKING IN

I'm still busy working six days a week getting ready for the humungous estate sale. And when you are over 70, working like that is much harder than when you are 20!! But, this type of work sure has its benefits when you are an antiquer (junker) like me. The workers have first crack at the goodies. The only rule is that someone else must do the pricing of the item you have your eye on. I've brought home quite a few wonderful things so far. Here are a couple of them.

The plate is Bavarian, the colors are luscious, and the bird is a delight - and only $3.00. Again for $3.00, this tiny (2 1/4") transferware pitcher is marked 'Rural England'.

I have lots more to show you on future posts. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, our garden did not get the message that I'm busy. Must do something about all of these tomatoes soon.

Enjoy a new week!

I'm linking up with the following parties:

Rhoda at Southern Hospitality

for Thrifty Treasures

and

Linda at Coastal Charm
for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays

Check out these blogs for a plethora of thrifty finds.

Oh I love the browns in those pretty transfer ware pieces! Nice prices, too. I bet you DID find some more nice things. LOL about your garden not getting the message about producing so much! Wish I could take some off your hands. *grin*

Hi Sally...came to visit from Coastal Charm and urge you to join Apron Thrift Girl's Monday Thrift Share...She strikes me as a thirty something version of yourself...You two should "meet"!

The plate is lovely. I have a thing for old style bird paintings.

Sally...Amazing price on that adorable pitcher! And the plate, too! Sounds like fun but exhausting work...worth it for those great finds! :) Hope you are doing great!

Agreeing with Susan on that adorable pitcher...and look at all those tomatoes...if I lived near you I would be making you some homemade tomato sauce...
