A Little Hunting

I hit a few garage, and, estate sales.

I walked around houses, and, garages filled with stuff.  However, I have really narrowed my focus. I can't tell you how much glass I've seen.  I passed on a ton of it.  This set?  I knew I wanted it as soon as I saw it.  It's Jeannette Shell Pink Milk Glass from the 1950's.

Ornate frames always jump out at me.

Books from the 1800's?  Love them.

Especially if they have cool writing in them.

Great cover on this one.

I saw someone pick up this French book, and, put it back.  I brought it home.

I love the illustrations.

I also picked up a few pieces of furniture.  I'll share later.

See ya soon.

  7. Boy Rosemary - you sure scored some amazing treasures. Amazing finds! I am loving those rabbit illustrations too. The 50's pink milk glass with the Butterflies speaks of softness and grace.

  13. I know what you mean about china and glass. It's become such a hard sell. Great books, Rosemary.
