I did a little research on this type of stoneware.
I didn't know much about it and I like to have a history and value of things I put in the store.
Daisy and Dot pottery was made by the Western Stoneware company in the 1950's-60's.
It was sold at grocery stores like Safeway, A & P, IGA, Loblaws, Jewel Food Stores and Kroger , possibly given as premium with Top Value Stamps.
( I remember green stamps and gold stamps , I imagine these were similar)
Anyway, I really like it .
Do I need it ?
Although that has never kept me from keeping things , I will probably take it all to the store.
But here is my favorite.
The thing he got knowing I would love it.
The one thing I can not part with.
Are you ready ?
ADORABLE ! Right?
PLUS it was FULL of vintage sewing supplies.
I don't even know what some of this stuff is !
Wooden Spools of thread ! WOODEN !
"Sewing Susan" gold eye needles with threader .
See that wheel thing in the picture ? I have NO idea what you do with that !
There were packages of "hook & eyes" and bags of old buttons and some other strange looking gadgets that I have no idea what to do with!
Doesn't matter to me .
I love it !
Don't I have the most awesome husband ?
I kinda think so ....well, most of the time anyway !
Are you wondering what Emily and Ryan bought ?
Among other things .... a house !
That's right .
They bought the house at the auction.
It is fabulous !
There is nothing I do not love about this house.
Hardwood floors, great ( untouched) woodwork, a fireplace.
It was built in the 1930's.
TONS of character !
I'm so excited to help decorate this house !
I'm pretty lucky , even though we have different decorating tastes , she asks my opinion and let's me help.
This is going to be so much fun !
