Today I went antiquing in Paris....that is
Paris, Missouri - not Paris, France.
These are the dishes I got today that I
am displaying with other cottage
items I already had:
In the little town of Paris there was an annual
antique show at the rural high school. I
thought some of the displays were really nice.
There were many quilts, etc. I bought some
75 year old cottage dishes that came
from the Burslem,
England Crownford Pottery.
The pattern is called "Surrey".
Most of the pieces are pretty stained and I
could not get the stains out but just picked out
a few of the best to keep. They were
inexpensive as they all have a ton
of crazing so I need to think of a craft
project with the remaining ones -
would be cute on
some birdhouses for sure.
And lastly I am sharing what the creek out
back looks like with 2 days of rain
and see how things have turned green:
