What I Rescued Last Week, Monday

Yes, I know, I am the Queen of Smalls. That seems to be pretty much what I found last week. When you have a small booth then it just makes sense to concentrate on smaller items. Believe me, I love big furniture and have had my share of selling it, but since my last heart attack scare last January, I have made a deal with my husband and myself, and that is "not to buy anything I cannot carry myself." (OK...maybe a few items, but nothing like before...old habits are hard to kick!)
I have some really great little tables, shelves, bookcases, etc. that I have in the garage, but I've been on the lookout for darker, "fallish" items, lately. Booth spaces are starting to show signs of fall colors, with leaves and pumpkins showing up, so I guess it's not too early to start the change in my space for fall decor.

Four great bird illustrations

Brown transferware soap dish

Stack of restaurant ironstone platters.

little drawers

Hat case with gorgeous blue lining.
Check out "A Heart in Provence" on my blog list. She has two wonderful
hat boxes in great condition.

The find of the day... Blue Staffordshire tureen bottom.
Can't you just see this filled with fall fruit and leaves,
and then at Christmas with paperwhites?

(this is a keeper)

And lest anyone think I am just shabby, pink, white, and chippy,
I do like some primitives.

Primitive shelf

Antlers in small garden urn.

Small yelloware crocks and bubble prints labeled
"Souvenirs from San Francisco".

paperweight with a courthouse view

English bisquit tin

This old popbottle crochet hot pad brought back memories.

small print of Mount Vernon

Orange Italian tray that screams FALL!

Very old tortoise shell

Hiding under all this is a great grain sack that I found
on the way home from St. Louis.

I have the update on my table re-do from last Monday.
It took some elbow grease, but it turned out really great and very functional.
I'll show you soon.
Hope you're off to a great week!
