A Weekend for the "Birds"

It's getting so hard to juggle my working weekends with my love of treasure hunting, but this past weekend I hit the jackpot!  Well, maybe just a small jackpot, but I was pleased nonetheless.

This is the last weekend we'll be opening our seasonal business at the coast and things were slow enough Saturday that I could leave Hubby in charge and run off to a church yard sale.  I found several neat things, but here's two dishes that I really loved.

This one is part of a seasonal series of decorative wall plates by Ganz.  They made one for each season and this one's called Winter Forest Tree.

This next one is a dish with a Hen & Rooster scene that I've seen on different porcelain pieces over the years.  It's a scene by H. Arndt and the plate manufacturer is Theo Ruhn, Bavaria Germany.   I collect chicken themed items, so I was excited to get this.

And since Thanksgiving is around the corner, I'm posting another little item I found.  This is a pilgrim boy and girl figurine and I found an old glass to make a cloche scene.  It's by Sebastian and it's called Little Sister.  I have several things by Sebastian, so I was happy to get another.  It made a pretty little addition to my Thanksgiving table decor!

See, it doesn't take much to make me happy!  I'm looking forward to my free Saturdays from now through May - just so I can go treasure hunting!

I'm linking to "Let's Dish" and Vintage Thingy Thursday today!
