vintage fan, plates and a pillow

It's too hot to be re-finishing furniture in the porch...
so I mosied over to the local flea market.

Was this a sign from the re-finishing gods?
A fan for working outside?

When I saw these plates I did a quick inhale and held
my breath until plates in

They have that flow blue look to them but I am
not sure if they are...

The plates are called Sylvia...I mean Sylvan...
another sign?

This pillow drove me NUTS today. I saw it
at my favorite thrift, carried it around while I shopped.
Then at the last minute put it back EVEN after the
cashier came down in price from $10.00 to $8.00!

It's a Catstudio pillow, all hand embroidered  in GREAT
shape. I got home, researched the name and
headed back to buy it.

Linking up to:
Thrifty Thursday over at Tales from Bloggeritaville
and Blue Creek Home for Treasure Hunt Thursday
let's go check them out.

Stay cool...

It has been a strange day here. I like the heat but this has been unbearable. Good thing I worked in the yard yesterday.
Those plates are great and that pillow is perfect! I had to squint to see if it said Sylvia..haha, just waiting for you!
Stay cool friend..

Hi, Sylvia. I love your plates as brother would really love them as he is a hunter. I looked up your plates for you. The registration mark on the back dates them to June of 1875...nice oldies, for sure.
Thanks for sharing your fun finds.

Beautiful finds, especially the plates/platters. They are English transfer ware from the Aesthetic period (1880-1910). GoRgEoUs!!!!! I'd have scooped them up in a heartbeat! Cool fan too!
