A Little Thrifting

Gentle Friends... well, we made it to Thursday and so it must be "Thrifty Thursday."  We hit the usual shops and I even tried to find the one Estate Sale going on in the City... but without any luck, I found the street, I found where the house should have been but no house with the number nor the usual Estate sale signs that should have been about ... I spent about 10 minutes looking then threw the towel in and headed home ....  but I had already found some fun stuff...

...a super hand painted, gilt trimmed hard paste porcelain 19th-century jug for a"Mary McChain 1849" a copy of Jean Plaidy's first book from her historical fiction series about the Tudor Dynasty and a super little porcelain tray from Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee of 1977.

Nice finds, I myself would be doing an internet search to find our about Mary McChain. I did a quick one there is such a person or at least the dates would be correct.

Dearest Edgar: Lovelyfinds, are you reading the series? It does look interesting.
The jug looks beautiful in your photo, I bet it even looks better in person.
Too bad you did not find the estate sale, they are so interesting to go too.

Blessings
