This case was made in Merry Ole England long ago; I am guessing in the 30s or 40s. I have some cleaning up to do but, it will be a love chore to get is looking like it did originally. If you like vintage or antique items she has a store on ebay and her userid is Shartey. http://myworld.ebay.com/shartey Anytime I am looking for something special; I know she is a wealth of information because she was a sucessful business woman who dealt in antiques before she retired.
THANKS MRS. Shartey!
I love both of them; she did a great job picking out colors that would match the case don't you think? Talk about a lovely Valentine's Day surprise.
Another gift in the mail today was this cd set from Grumpy Gramps. We are so thrilled to know he is back home from a stay in the hospital. This chicken momma was worried about him last week. He is a truly amazing man and both my boys love him to pieces. Thanks Mr. Larry!
I have started collecting some melmac dinnerware for everyday use in our home; not so scarey as breakables with a cast iron sink. That rooster card is also from Mrs. Shartey. I just love chickens of all breeds. So far, I have to find about 8 more dinner plates and a few more bowls. I just love these items and will show you more of my vintage pieces another time. I like using these cups to whisk up a few eggs or cutting extra large bisquits.
Here is one of our latest Cuckoo Maran chicks. These came in two weeks early but, I took them anyway. Each time I have wanted to get some of these 'chocolate egg' layers; they have sold out by time I have made it to Beeville. We have a plethora of chicks and chickens now. So far our count is as following:
35 Ameraucanas hens
1 Delaware hen
9 red production hens
2 Delaware rooster
1 Ameraucana rooster
1 Red Brahma rooster banty
15 Buff Orphintons
25 Amerucana chicks
19 Cuckoo Maran pullets, 1 cockrel
plus a few mixed chickens running about. LOL
I surely hope ya'll are enjoying your slice of heaven on this beautiful Valentines Day!
