|Entry vignette at Athens Schoolhouse Antiques, Lexington area|
My littles, who are taller than I am and who will always be my babies, and hubby treated me to lunch on Saturday.
That was the day that all of us could be together. My son works in law enforcement and does not get the normal weekend days off like the rest of the working world.
The fact that we could all sit down for a meal together was quite a treat for me.
Driving from south central Ky to Lexington on Saturday. The sun was out. The sky was blue. And the temperature was perfect.
|Antique bucket of flowers|
After lunch hubby and son went another direction while daughter and I went antiquing at the Athens Schoolhouse Antique fair. Imagine a whole school filled with antiques!
The first picture with the tulips and chalkboard vignette were at the entry. I snapped it to share with you all. I could see something like that on a nice back porch.
The bucket of flowers above caught my fancy also...as did the old ladderback chair. When I snapped the pic a man told me I was cheating...because I was supposed to buy it and take it home. Ha ha to you little man!
I picked up a couple of treasures while antiquing. I could not make up my mind between a couple of antique ironstone tureens and continued to browse and think about it.
Later on I circled back and bought this sweet one. I love the simple oval shape.
Now I must decide where to put it. My house is bursting at the seams with my collections.
This silver plate English bowl was my first purchase... at ten dollars.
It is the perfect bowl except for one small seam around the top edge. But that is no big deal for me to use as an accessory....and for the price. :-)
I could use your help with the hallmark on my bowl. I was online searching for the W A inside the shield and saw nothing.
If you know anything please contact me or leave a message below. This inquiring mind wants to know. It also has the mark Celtic Quality Silverplate.
And here I am after a wonderful day with hubby and kids. The makeup has melted away and my hair is back in a ponytail for the drive back to southcentral (as we call it.)
