Honestly, I have come to love thrift stores! My treasures never need to be perfect specimans nor very valuable in the antique world. These pieces totalled under $10 and are a pottery made in the 1880’s by a company in France called Brown Westhead Moore and Co. and the pattern is called Neil. The makers mark is on the bottom so I learned all of that online. Here is a piece of transferware that cost $1.50 c. 1885. Where has it been all those years and what tales could it tell? I wish it could talk! Isn’t it beautiful?
And the quilt on the table is the one I made with the collection of Japanese fabrics. I love this muted palette which looks typical Country Threads, doesn’t it?
That’s it for today. Tomorrow is going to be a music day! My cousin, Jill from California, is home to see her mom who is my mom’s sister and she is a professional pianist. We are going to play duets for her mom on my piano and Becky is coming, too, with her guitar. It will be a fun day!
