another 'Blue' Week
First I had some great bargains over at Ashburton, at their Linen sale, which I mentioned on the I Op Therefore I am blog .. but Friday afternoon I outshone all my expectations.
First this large blue glass Mid-Century Biscuit Barrel (Cookie Jar). It is in wonderful condition, except the bamboo handle needs some tlc. Made in Japan for Counterpoint San Francisco, it is about 17cm high and 17cm wide at the base.
About to give up and go home, happy, for a well earned cup of Tea (Vic always puts the kettle on at 4.30pm) when I saw this very grubby little Travel Case / Cosmetics Case. It has cleaned up ok, but the metal fastenings on the handle are rusty. Inside it is taffeta lined, with a mirror in the lid, and a cute little lift out shelf/jewel box.
I hope you all had a wonderful week, finding treasures to add to your life's enjoyment. Join like minded fossikers over at Sophie's we all love to share our stories.
