It’s been a while since I’ve been able to take a day to mill around an antique store. There has just been too much to do at the studio and, of course, things have been off-kilter with the summer schedule, my recent trip to Atlanta, etc. School starts in a couple of weeks and then it’ll be back into the routine.
While I haven’t been able to make it out shopping, a few things have made their way to me and we’ll be listing them in the online shop this Thursday (the sale will go live at 8:00 pm EST, which is becoming our usual sale night.)
I love these blue and white napkins with fringe detail…
As with all things blue and white, I’m tempted to keep them, but a drawer full of linen napkins in my dining room tells me I need to let these go on to another home.
This blue & white pitcher isn’t old, but it feels old. I love the shape and striping.
I was also tempted by this ironstone casserole. I haven’t seen one with flowers like this before. It’s very unique.
I have other ironstone pieces, too, more casseroles, bowls, a teapot, pitchers, etc.
And a slew of sweet baby dresses. These two delicate blue ones made me smile.
And I finally got in the shipment of German brushes I ordered back in June! I will be restocking the dish brushes, fruit brushes, pot brushes, scrub brushes and will also be adding a few new styles, like this scrubber…
And the prettiest flyswatter ever…
Yes, I called a flyswatter pretty.
The wires kill and trap the fly at the same time, so form and function meet.
I also got this awesome canning set, but I’m keeping it for the moment. You know me, though, it’ll end up for sale eventually.
If you’re local and are interested in the mirror from my guest room, just send me an e-mail. It’s for sale, too, but I’m not willing to ship it. That’s just not going to end well.
Next week, we’ll start working on a project I’ve been wanting to do since I first moved into the studio…
Yep, that’s flooring. The floors in the studio are old wood, but they are very orange and, when the light is right, they even cast an orange glow in my photos. I’m not going to lay new flooring in the entire studio, but I’m going to float it over the existing floor in one corner, so I can set up a “room” for photo shoots.
I’ll share more details on the flooring, the installation process and, of course, show you how it turns out. We’ll work on installing it next week…
