Big Daddy and I were at The Mother Of All Church Rummage Sales yesterday. He found his self an antique cast iron pan,
and I found these
I could just barely see about a half inch of a saucer sticking up in a cardboard box under a table, but I knew exactly what I was looking at. My Mama was a BIG Red Transferware collector so I can sence a disturbance in the force when it’s in my AO. We have spent countless hours together hunting high and low for the stuff. The wall above her big antique oak bed I covered in it.
The box had $3 written on it in black Sharpie. Frankly, that was enough for me. I was in such a state I didn’t even bother to unwrap the rest of the box.
As I went through table after table of dishes, glassware and coffee mugs I found the large, perfect platter for $5.
That’s $8 so far if you are keeping track.
Next, also under another table taped together were two teacups and four saucers for another $3!
When I got home and unwrapped the stuff in the $3 box it contained 4 dinner plates, four saucers and three more teacups all of which were Blue Willow. In the bottom of that box was a bonus.
And a sweet little teacup
The best part of all this?
The unbelievably sweet memories that were brought back of my Mama 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day
