Things I love Thursday



.
Yes, I love this piece of pottery. But I love how I acquired it much, much more! People who like to garage sale and thrift sale shop will tell you that the best part is the hunt, the anticipation of what's out there waiting for you. I found this piece at a garage sale, in one of those boring cookie cutter neighborhoods, for 3 dollars. The lady was probably getting rid of Grandma's stuff, "It's all so old!" Who knows? I do know that her ignorance was my gain. This did not start me on a Roseville kick though, I like the stuff but it's way too pricey for me. I'll stick with the more reasonably priced McCoy, I like the simple design better anyhow.
I couldn't find an exact example on ebay, but this gives you an idea of what these things are worth. Click Here.
