Marian ParsonsAntiques, Favorite Finds

When I was out shopping on Saturday, the main purpose was getting out of the house and away from the studio, but I was also hoping to find things to list in the online shop.

I usually find a quilt every now and then.  Maybe a few each year.  This shopping trip, though, I found three quilts!  It was just my day when it came to finding pretty quilts at decent prices.

I have always loved “penny” quilts and I found a lovely red-work one along with this sweet, colorful patchwork quilt.


Both are in nice, useable condition.  The third one is in the washing machine as I type this.  It was a little dirty, so I wanted to wash it before selling it.  It’s a very pale, almost imperceptible, blue on cream pattern and it’s a gorgeous piece.

Of course, I picked up some ironstone as well.  This pitcher is a stunner…


I actually had it in my keep pile, but I had a little talk with myself that involved me pointing out to myself that I already have enough ironstone.  If there is such a thing.


A few readers have asked me about the large blue & white bowl I keep mixed nuts in and I found one that is very similar!  It’s the same unusual size, but the pattern is simpler and in a teal color.


I’m also selling off some of my copper pots and pans.  These are ones I had mainly as decor for my pot rack, but I bought three French copper pots on clearance when I was at HomeGoods, so I decided to thin out the collection.


I also bought a beautiful petticoat that I may or may not have bought to actually wear.


You can see all of the “coming soon” items listed in the online shop HERE.   All of those products will go live Thursday, November 3, 2016, at 8:00 pm EST.
