Blue Friday Happy Friday

Happy Friday y’all! You know…I’m simply amazed how much blue is in my world…our world. Aren’t you really, too? Today, I’m sharing what I did yesterday afternoon for nearly 3 hours! Oh, so you think you know me that well…really? Well, you likely do…if you have been following my blog for a while, that is! Yes, I do love to shop and yesterday, I was in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and suddenly thought to myself why not go to the “Knitting Mill Antiques”? There was no reason not to and I really was eager to see what they had.
The truth is a lot of it I might have wanted if only those same items were not still in my home. And blue has been on my mind and guess what blue was everywhere I looked and so I thought snap that blue with that Droid.
Have you noticed that owls are back in? If you haven’t consider yourself warned. Some of the ones really remind me of the owls of the 70’s, sort of cartoon looking and wild colors.
Notice the many shades of blue! Not blue, but what about this iron cornstick pan? The price on it is $75. Notice that the sticks all are turned opposite ends on every other one. See? I’ve noticed new ones at the cast iron shop that all go the same direction, rather than rotate like this photo….and like mine. Not quite an antique piece, but collectible maybe.
This sweet small table sort of pulled at my heart a bit. I think I have a thing for small tables…like I have a difficult time leaving them where I found them.
Notice there are many pillows near the white tables, too. New pillows with French writing, etc.
Walking through one booth after another, you begin to see things your grandparents, parents or you have had over the years. And I do have this heart shaped cupcake pan in blue and white!
And last, but not least is this neat lamp, that appears to really be made of books. You have to admit that it is unique and isn’t that teal blue? Love that teal always!
If you visit The Knitting Mill Antiques, please tell them that I recommended them. They are very helpful and there’s a lot of Fostoria-Jamestown pattern in amber stemware, pottery, fine china in brands you will recognize, too. Visit them on the web at:
