A Little Thrifting

Gentle Friends, out and about again over the weekend and I found some fun things....

...  I picked up 3 things... the nice aquatint of a mill in the Calvados region of northern France...

... I also picked up this great little hard past porcelain cup, I think it's a punch cup, due to the decoration.  I've been looking at it for almost a month at the Goodwill, but I just couldn't justify the purchase until it hit the half price shelves on Saturday - 

... and I found this at a thrift store...It's a reproduction and contains stone removed from the Cathedral during restoration work. This is from Wells Cathedral c. 1240 - from the east aisle of the north transept and represents a sexless Salamander, a reminder to the monks of their vow of celibacy.
