It’s Tuesday!! I enjoyed another bowl of peanut butter porridge with some Scottish Breakfast Tea from Taylor’s. Then it was hurry up and get dressed I need to go to the library.
But I wanted to share this find with you all. Sunday we went to the market. Next door sort of is the Goodwill Shop. I’m just dawdling around in there and OU Boy comes running up with not one but two pieces of Frankoma Pottery!! For 50 cents each!
Frankoma Pottery is an American pottery company located in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. The company is widely known for its sculptures and dinnerware although the company made many other products including figurines, trivets, and vases. All Frankoma pottery is made in the U.S. from locally dug clay.
We occasionally see it on the Antiques Roadshow and I don’t think someone realized what they had before donating it. But we grabbed them and headed for the door! The two in the back of the picture are my little Toby Jug and a piece of Quimper. So yeah OU Boy who has just been surprising the heck out of me this week.
All the kids go back to school tomorrow. I’m really sad about that, but not having them this week has allowed me to start running again and play tennis with adults. Yesterday I did 3 miles and played a set with OU Boy of tennis. The water exercises I’ve been doing for my knee have really paid off but I’m still taking it slow.
For now we are off on some type of adventure….more treasure hunting maybe.
