Winter Antiquing

It’s a very cold, rainy, dreary, winter day here in southern Arkansas. Initially I didn’t want to leave the house, but Mum asked if I wanted to go with her to pick up the sis from college so I decided to get out. We stopped off at a bigger (for our town) flea market that’s across the road from the college. While looking around Mum pointed out two adorable pie plates that she thought I’d like.

I’m not quite sure on what the pattern is called- it only has U.S.A on the back of the pie plates. I do love the pattern though, and it’ll go with my other dishes as well!

This is a close up of one of the pie plates. With my “every day” dishes I collect a mixture of Blue Italian by Spode, Blue Willow, and Historical Ports of England. So these pie plates will fit in perfectly. (:

When I went to take my sister to the college for another one of her classes, I decided to pop into one of my favorite antique stores in downtown. The owner of the building has recently had one part of the building restored, and it is gorgeous!

I always enjoy walking around that part of the antique store! I found this reproduction 1915 Economy Cookbook while walking around.

 After turning a few pages I knew that this little cookbook was coming home with me!

There’s a booth with all kinds of quilting fabrics and vintage sewing notions. These quilting fabrics jumped out to me and I thought they’d make some adorable quilted potholders. Yes, there will be a blog post on those. (;

I’ve been looking for these little dessert plates and finally found one. Now to find three others like it!

I always have fun antiquing, even if no treasures come home with me. Have you been antiquing lately?
