A Few More Vintage Finds


A few more simple finds found at Webster last Monday...

This HONEY tin is in great shape...
Too bad I can't read the faint writing in the box...
From The Apiary of.....


I love it's blue color which blends perfectly
 with the small size Ball canning jar I found.


And then there was this vintage mint green jewelry box with the same color blue for its velvet lining.


Possibly my favorite take home treasure...
is this old ironstone corn mold.

Did you know vintage kitchen items were my first love?

I can't seem to get enough of white ironstone.
Although, goodness knows...
I. have. enough.


One of my Mom's pretty silver spoons...
February
sits on top of 4 vintage blue and white linen napkins.

love blue and white.
love linen.


 ...oh, and I forgot to show you these three tiny change purses...
...not sure what crafty thing I will do with them.
They probably will sit in a box with all the other tiny change purses I seem to bring home with me!

 So that's it for today. 
I have chicken tarragon in the oven and am expecting
 Mr. Flea's parents to join Dad and me for dinner.

Then....it's Super Bowl time and, of course...Downton Abbey!

as always, wonderful things!
I adore the ironstone corn mold, and of course the little purses, and the bitsy locket, and, and.....
Doctors should pick up on the BHD, clever Laura, very clever!!!!!
Love and hugs, Evi
PS. The purses would look wonderful with some other little tidbids in an old frame with pretty paper as background.

Love love love the honey pail!! Any info on where it came from?

Bliss said...

I was out thrifting and junk'in with my daughter today to help feather her new next and I found myself looking at stuff in a whole new way and thinking things like "hmmm so and so (blogger) collects this" or "oh so and so would make a ____ out of that". It was like I was shopping for hundreds!

You saw what I saw at Webster....I'm going back.
Isn't it funny how a theme can happen when junkin. I love all the blue, especially the little ball jar. Watching the game now!

Laura, you a truly a collector after my own heart. I LOvE blue and white. It's my favorite color palette in the whole world. I collect and love ironstone forever and ever! Wonderful Finds!

Beautiful blog! Iconic images!

I can't resist a challenge, so I borrowed your Honey Tin image. Opened it in Paint.net, cropped just the label and used contrast to enhance it. I can just make out the words,
"Mrs. J. or U. Barry" it looks most like the letter U. The words below that are too blurred, but if you take the highest def. photo you're able to, and do the same you may solve that mystery too.

I can send you a copy of the bit I enhanced if you want. After that, I will delete it from my computer. I don't keep photos that don't belong to me. I just wanted to solve the mystery. Now I'd love to know who Mrs. Barry was.

I Have many of the coin change purses too, and I wonder what to do! I get them I guess just because I know they are so old.
That spoon in the most elaborate I have ever scene.

You really have a fine shopping place at Webster!
