Gentle Friends thanks so much for your kind comments about yesterdays snap...here's a little explanation...... we were at a Bar-B-Que over the weekend at a friends house (they restored one of the painted ladies just off Alamo Square) and with a house full of people two of their four cats just slept through all the commotion soaking up the sunbeams - and if truth be told it wouldn't have taken much to get me to take a nap with them - but, it was a super day and I loved the way the picture captured the quiet moment.
The other day the mail brought me something I won on the Bay of Evil..... as most of you know one of the things I have collected for years and years is 18th and 19th century transferware. I often go searching the listing of pieces (and there are 1000's) and came across a platter I was going to own....
The pattern is called "The Sea" and was made by Adams ca. 1840-60 - referred to as "pink" it is red in colour and I am lovin' my "new" piece of china!!!!!
Last Saturday I made it to some of the thrift /consignment shops and found some things....
..... I found a great Longaberger basket marked $1.69, on sale for .75, so how could I pass on that!! The silver tray was black with tarnish, but I saw how great it was, and saw it had a Gorham date mark for 1918, AND it was only $8, with such a great monogram I wasn't leaving this beauty behind, and as usual I found some more DVD's to add to my ever growing collection of film. "Rat Race" is so funny, and probably the best line has got to be.... "They should have bought a squirrel!" I laugh every time! It's worth a look.
There you go sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
