OMG-Two Posts in one day!

 

 

008

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:  009 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!

It's so frustrating to see people getting rid of family treasures and heirlooms. Some people just don't appreciate them and should at least give them to a thrift shop or something, not to trash! I'm glad you got some neat bowls though.
