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.
