First Finds for Winter

I  found this gorgeous 100 yo plate on a long trip  to check out the charity shops in a country town on the Murray River. I love it...its circa 1900 transfer ware from Staffordshire

In my own town charity shop I spied this trio of vintage copper kitchen scoops for $1!

the garden is already very dreary with bare trees and gray days
