Yelloware molds, new tutorial and other goodies

Hello Prim girls,
It has been  more than a week that I made a post. For me is too much, I think I'm addicted to this...LOL.  My kids were sick this week one with cold and other with throat infection and flu. Thanks God was not "Swine". Also, I was sneezing and coughing all the weekend, that was the reason to stop my new wood piece. I design it few weeks ago, but we were working on it during this week. I hope I will finish my new piece today.  I will make a deal  with you guys, if you like it, leave a message in this post and I will sharing a new tutorial of this piece with you.What do you think??? I’ll show you a sneak peek!

Due my kids illness, I have not make much "thrifting" last week. But on Friday, they are better and we go out  and as always make a stop in my favorite TS, it is a little place but always I found something primitive in it. And  this week I am not disappointed,  look what I found...

Yes, three antique molds, two yelloware and one cream colored .

The better, the prices $3 and $4.  Also, the old blue mason jar was $5. Not to bad for a TS. I was like a kid in Christmas.... Happy, happy, haaaapppyyy.  I have a question for you, they remember you somebody?..... If your response is Linda, you are correct. When I see them I think in Linda, her blog Behind my Red Door is one of my favorites, not only for her amazing pictures, but I learned so much for colonial things that I loved since I found her in the CS & MG Magazines. Yes, I started blogging since I read those articles, and Thanks God after that I found your awesome blogs and amazing people in the blog land.  I'm not a "copy cat person" but I think if you loved something you need to learn from the people who know about the theme. I loved her informative/educational posts like redware, pottery, bittersweet, you named.  They are so helpful. Thank you Linda! 

My next stop (in the same route) was a new TS that opened two weeks ago. It was behind a large  Warehouse and I never see the little sign that they had. Do you believe that??? A TS always needs a LARGER SIGN. Do you agree with me?  Well , look what I found in there.. 

All the pieces are in very good condition, no cracks, no chips. Simply perfect! And low prices , all including tax for $27.25. What a great deal.  Last Friday was my lucky day... LOL.


Also, I found a few things a couple weeks ago in the Goodwill and I would share them with you today because I forgot to make pic's of them before.

A little desk, a bench and a table, all for $20.00. Sorry , I forgot the pictures before the makeovers...

A little crock, stamped #1 from Roseville Pottery,  Ohio for $2.49 ( in mint condition), and the framed star quilt for $1.00 ( see behind the crock).

Bye, Bye and see you soon... Evelyn
