I wasn't supposed to go anywhere this weekend, so of course, have barely been home a minute. Yesterday we trekked around Iowa City, visiting Decorum and Artifacts, today we were just going to check on an estate sale, but ended up in Cedar Rapids (well, actually, Marion, but they are attached). The antique pickings were pretty slim, had it chalked up as a wasted trip until we decided to go to Mt Vernon, and Polly Anns came through with a bunch of bread boards and bowls, I cheered up immediately. Well, day shot anyway, so why not keep going? We went to Monticello, found a ton more prim stuff, so much I can't even remember, then to Cascade, more bread boards more bowls. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at what I've gotten myself into, but knew I had to get it while I found it, 6 months from now it will probably be back to the antique desert, wondering where they all are. Oh, if you need an antique frame, you should go to Polly Ann's! She took us on a tour of the work room and I tell you, I have never seen so many picture frames anywhere, not even in a frame shop!
Here are some little early originals I found. The honey dipper is so old and I just love it.
