Gentle Readers and Dear Friends yesterday's Jury Duty was a total bust. When I got there to sign in there was Surprise Strike of the Court Clerks - after I eventually found someone to ask about my doing duty I was sent home. I guess that's the way the ball bounces.
I am also having camera issues. My regular camera I have been using for the last few years has now decided to become the wackiest camera on earth... the pictures are smeary looking and have blasted colouring.... so I dug out my older camera and of course now I am having battery issues with that!!
But, before all that I did get a single decent shot of the weekend purchases -
Hitting all the Consignment/Thrift and Junque shops I picked up from l to r - two great old Copeland Spode plates - 1 dinner and 1 salad in the "Florence" pattern - 4 spice canisters - I found out that the words are Dutch and translate to "Pepper," "Herbs," "Mace," and I think "Cloves." I don't speak Dutch and the translators I found online where sort of vague. If anyone knows a better translation I would love to hear it. -and- two books. The super Black Transferware plate I got at an Antique Collective that was moving to another spot here in town. The Booth that this came from had everything on 50% off so how could I pass. I guess it dates from the 2nd Quarter of the 19th century and is in perfect condition.
I have also been working on ATS, but no snapperoo - I'll try and get on up in the morning.
That's about it for today sports fans - thanks for stopping by, do stop again!
