Colorado vacation was the start to my New Year. We take one 'off day' in the middle of the ski schedule. We headed to Denver for a stop at Harriet's Treadle Arts. There's usually a stop at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden, but I'd already seen the current exhibit three times. So, we stopped at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. It's just off the expressway - I've always wanted to check it out. I found this unusual Fenton 'Minerva' pattern sugar bowl.
And if you're feeling a little blue - same piece, different side.
Awhile ago I posted about the small pitcher I use to fill my iron. Well, the Majolica pitcher now has a buddy. This whimsical beauty is from Staffordshire, England - no maker inscription. I tried to take pictures of each figure, but the transferware just won't render a sharp image - two frogs (one drinking tea), a jester, and a mob-capped woman holding a child.
Another first on the free day was a stop in Georgetown (historic Victorian mining town). I love old architecture, so I'm including pictures of the Georgetown Public School and First Presbyterian Church, both completed in 1874 (and opposite each other on the same street).
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
