Digging up bones....
My husband is very ill and I dont get many breaks but last evening the family took over for a few hours to give me some down time. I took a walk (and a shovel) to my favorite woods where I had noticed what looked like an old household trash mound. Well let me tell you I hit the mother lode! Three trips out of the woods to cart it home! Next time I bring a wagon with the shovel! Came home, cleaned it up and researched. Found:
Royal Haeger Elm Leaf Vase in agate green with blue/green drip glaze, circa 1938-1940.
Mauve Hull tulip design planter/vase circa 1940's
Italian handpainted pitcher
small wooden window with labels attached
tons of enamel ware
I am very excited. Talk about trash to treasures!
My kids warn me that one day I will dig up bones or something disgusting! Neighbor knows I walk there and gave me permission to dig on his property so its cool. He thinks I'm nuts. Maybe I am, but what fun!
