Look at what I got today! Two Watts bowls marked 6 & 7, a small yellow ware bowl, a blue bowl, a two tone jug, a very large Ironstone bowl and a bowl with blue/white band. . .Yellow Ware??? And crock with a number 4 and the dark blue design, which for the life of me right now, I forget what it is called!
My neighbor is moving and she stopped by the other day to let me know that she may have some things I may want. I stopped over on my way to the grocery store and told her I would be back after shopping. When I arrived the “junk” haulers were there. I made a bee-line for the stuff in the photo! I looked in the truck and there was some really great things, or were great, the haulers had broken the furniture into pieces, there were chairs and a couple of tables and a hutch, that now was firewood! My heart sank when they took an axe to a beautiful antique chest, I had to leave, it upset me so. I told her to wait and if I could find a place to store the stuff I would, but it was too late! I understand that she wants to pack up and move on, BUT, I wish she had waited before having really good things broken to fit into a dump truck. I came home really upset. . .and who knows what was under the stuff in the truck! Oh, and I picked up a nice quilt that is now being soaked and washed!
I was so upset, I came home and did this: Yes sir, I hate HALF of a coconut custard pie, of course now I am upset about that, but at the time it seemed to take away the image of the man with the axe chopping up that trunk. . .now we know why some things are so collectible! I just had to share. . .Oh, if anyone knows the name of the crock, please let me know, I cannot remember at all!
