Harmless Banter by Beverly Taylor Design

Antiquing Weekend

January 10th, 2011

at Fearington Village barn.
It is snowing as we turn in with clear skies ahead.
The barn

Always attracted to samplers and the bluebirds are unusal-

I love this original
blue painted chest.
Great old crock to serve and keep cool liquids with lots of blue
decoration
Old Metal hat used as part of a trade sign
The gun is HUGE!  Another part of a trade sign.
Unusual butter pat mold with carved cow.
Other goodies 

I love this old folk art drawing.  It just
makes you smile.

There were lots of old hand forged iron work.
I collect heart-shaped things.  

Hand forged iron lizard 
Different representations were made to ward off evil spirits.
The snakes are interesting too.
Feather ware- the blue edges were painted using a feather. The leaf shaped
bowl is unusual.

As we leave the barn the snow starts again.
A great day with lots of treasures.
