These are my Saturday antique finds.
I went to breakfast with my cousin and since she was by herself, we did a little bit of browsing. The block of Main Street that we were on, has 3 antique stores. I didn't make it to the 3rd store, but it was fun looking in the 2 stores.
After looking and buying, I want to decorate my house like my great grandma Hemo's house. I guess it's a comfort thing. All happy things happened there. I'd stay there if I was sick and we would have get togethers there every weekend it seemed.
I love the platter with the spider mums. The blue and pink make it look so modern, but it was made in 1956. I loved the vase and it was actually on sale. I haven't picked out any flowers, but I may put some bright red poppies in it. I'm on the search to find vintage Dick and Jane readers, this one is Alice and Jerry. If you find a Dick and Jane book, or even their doggy Spot reader, grab it for me! My aunt got me a new book of Dick and Jane, but I'm looking for the vintage readers. The yellow ashtray is Frankoma. Ashtrays are hard to come by. I'll probably just use it as a catchall. The metal measuring cup is like the ones that used to come in the flour sacks. I used to have one but it got legs.
