I Guess Life Ain't SO Bad. I Did Manage To Rake In Some More Russel Wright Iroquois Recently. Status: I Know...Like I NEED More Russel Wright.
I hope nobody thought I was pissing and moaning about my weekend the last couple of days. I had a great weekend. Well, I napped through a lot of it, but hanging out Saturday morning with like minded crazies was pretty fun and I made some new and interesting acquaintances.
I had picked up one of the Blue Iroquois Dinner Plates at that roadside flea market we stopped at on
vacation. Then a few weeks ago I found three more at the Big Bend Antique Gallery for a very
reasonable price. Theeeennnnn I found a few more tea cups (already had a few) at the Treasure
Aisle Antique Mall next door! Sweet.
Then...I found a White Creamer and another great piece of that Starburty Glassbake at the South
County Antique Mall. I thought I needed the creamer but when I got home and paired it up with the
Brown Sugar Bowl I remembered it was cracked. Oops. Dang...now I need to find another Sugar
I completely forgot that I bought this beautiful Chartreuse Nesting Salt And Pepper set at the estate
sale a few weeks ago that had that strange gondola style sofa. They are in nearly perfect condition!
The only flaw is that the other cork is broken off inside the body of the other shaker. $4 well spent.
I also already had the saucers. I got TONS of saucers. Saucers were the first pieces of Russel
Wright I ever bought. Now I've got a couple dozen loose ones. Pink, blue, nutmeg...all kinds of
colors. Told ya I was gonna get me a good collection of Russel Wright Iroquois Casual going!
