The man taking the money explained to me that this was the home of local celebrity Betsy Breckinridge and the paintings were done by her mother, Carolyn Wells, "in her younger years." In addition to this quirky lady, I bought a landscape painting that reminds me of the Midwest in the '50s.
Enamelware!... and another Ball jar. I can't help myself.
I thought this terra cotta pot had fabulous form and I liked it so much, I bought two.
I buy scarves everywhere I go in hopes of one day framing them or making them into pillows. Rarely I wear them, but I particularly loved the MC Escher-ish one with the navy blue houses.
These two dolls were a last minute find and I think they'll be cute as part of a hanging collage of framed pictures and things.
That's all for now, I gotta run and hide all of this stuff before the old man gets home. It's best that he discover these little treasures after they've been nestled into their proper places. More to come...
