Some of my favorite moments are those spent scouting out yard sales, flea markets or some previously unvisited antique mall. I am always fascinated by all the different things people are searching for.
Recently I noticed someone who delights in primitive items. Another man was buying old oil cans (like Frankie on The Pickers) and hardware from another century and there I was scouring for vintage linens and teacups and saucers and the like.
As I was waiting to pay, a man wheeled by his purchase of a unique potting bench that someone made from pieces of repurposed wood. It was really cool! I am on the hunt for an old door - one with a curved round top which is harder to find. I would love it even more with a little curved window you could open out in it.
I am sharing some of my weekend treasures today including another Tuscan cup and saucer which has more silver on it and slightly different than the first two I found. Also: a pretty pink embroidered runner, a Swan vase, another straw hat to wear in the garden and another white milk glass vase.
