HAPPY THANKSGIVING, Treasures and Winner

Wishing you ALL a Happy Thanksgiving. God has indeed blessed us all.
This pitcher and bowl I picked up 2nd day of an estate sale and paid 17.50 for it. Hubby looked up the marking on the bottom and found out it was made between 1852-1883....It's a Real Antique!!! Who Knew!!?? I'm pleased as punch and it's a keeper...for now. Hubby also looked on eBay for one like it and found one without the bowl...asking price 100.00...not bad!

The markings on the bottom of the pitcher.



The picture above and below are the finds from Friday and Saturday.I also bought a couple of small furniture pieces that I'm painting. I'll show the before and after soon. The toothpick holder is just like the one my Grandma had. The yellow bird is a flower frog! I just read about flower frogs in a magazine and ones like the bird are more unique.







I would LOVE to give you ALL a treasure because you are all little treasures to me! I am Thankful for my Blogging Gals. The First Name picked: Joycelyn at Just A Little Southern Hospitality and the Second name picked: Joy at Books and Life....gals email me with your address and the little gifts will be on their way!! I just couldn't pick one name...because of my "picking issue"... :)
I'll be away from blogging for the week. I must get a FEW things done around here. I'll say "Hi"...just won't post :)
Enjoy the holiday. God Bless.
Warmly,
Deb :)
