Show & Tell


Tin I found at a flea market, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

I asked the guys (hub and son) if they wanted to take a ride down Rt. 1 to Nottingham, PA. which is the home of Herr’s, the potato chip factory. I got Sean to go on the promise that we would go to the gift shop for some ‘fresh’ chips. Lo and behold, the factory was closed on weekends! Across the street is this big ol’ horse barn/turned flea market. Lots of junkie stuff, but I found this gorgeous detailed tin (probably cake or cookies were inside at one time) that I got for about $4 as the lady only charged me $5 for it and an orange carnival glass vase. The vase has some defects-it looks like a crack is in it, but it’s the finish, but I could picture marigolds in it. So that was bounty of that little weekend excursion. : )

  1. Amazingly beautiful!!! I love the scene. But, where is the vase? You saving that to show us next week, right?

    My show n tell is not published. I finished a painting in watercolor, finally! Come by and see it if you can find time.

    Happy Friday.

  2. Hey Dianne! Just to reply where I know you’ll see it. 😀 I did get your lovely card and the very handy bookmarks and I mentioned it in an earlier blog post as well as sending you an email. My emails to comcast accounts usually don’t make it, though. 😦 But thank you VERY much for remembering me and for the bookmarks – they’ll get a lot of good use! 😀
