Friday's Find #193

TGITF Friends! I'm always on the lookout for vintage plates to add to my transferware gallery wall, so I was thrilled to come across two patterns I haven't seen before. The larger one is Johnson Brothers Old Flower Prints and the smaller one is Myott, Son & Co. England Bonnie Dundee and the colors are perfect with my collection. {See the evolution of my plate gallery wall, here.}

I don't know many people who would pass on a pretty aqua Ball mason jar--certainly not me! This a promotional Bicentennial jar, made in 1976.

I'm always drawn to floral and garden inspired crafts so I love these handmade flower seed packet magnets.

This silhouette looks like others I've seen sold at a amusement parks, and the mat is smudged but I never pass oval frames. I upcycle them for my etsy shop and one of these days, I'm going to do make something with the assortment of silhouettes I'm acquiring.

This square wicker chest was a bargain and while I can always use the storage, I have another plan in mind, too.

Okay, when I come across a gem like this, I'm thinking The seventies called and want their sign back--am I right? Here's why I didn't pass: it's a solid wood sign with a great shape. Stay tuned for the makeover!

Until next time, happy hunting!
