I did a little
Junkin Treasure Hunting.
These are a few pictures of the things I found.
Love this gorgeous Amber dish I found.
We have a local Antique Classified, and I found this beauty.
Some people don't like Amber glass, but I do.
As a matter of fact I love it.
This is actually Carnival Glass. . even better!
Then I found these pretty little plates.
I know they aren't antique, but they are pretty all the same.
Heck, I just hang them on walls, or put them on a decorative shelf.
A gal can never have too many plates, is my philosophy. .
Ok, I know you are saying "what the heck is that"?
Well, it is a bee skep.. . now you will ask
"What"?, or you may ask "Why"? or possibly
"What do you want with that thing"?
Well. . . . I want to decorate with it.
I will put it in my back yard as a yard decoration.
Hey, they are popular right now.
I bought a small one just not too long ago at Michael's.
The small one is a little easier to decorate with. . but all the same.
I like the big skep. . it will look great in the yard.
Now I am sure you will ask, "What is a Bee Skep"?
Besides being cute to decorate with. .
In ancient times. .
"Bee Skeps were carefully designed domed baskets to house bee hives.
Bees need a dry place to make a home.
But, now days beekeepers are required to be able
to easily open their hives for inspection, therefore skeps are illegal to use."
Also, in ancient Holland a bridal couple was given a skep
To parade around town with.
A Bee Skep was a symbol of starting a new home and
A swarm of bees was a wedding gift."
Looks, just like mine!
Did I not say it would look cute in my yard?
Just look at how cute this is. . Oh my the ideas!
I just think they look "homey" and "cozy" for decorating.
I felt pretty lucky to find the big one. It only cost me
A couple of dollars. Where as they sell for many dollars more.
So there you have it. . The
Junk Hunt Treasure Hunt
Who would have thought. . .like we say in the
Treasure Hunting World.
One man's Junk is another mans Treasure."
See ya later. .
