A beautiful drive on this sunny day through the Natahala Gorge took us to Murphy N.C.
While hubby golfed, I hit the thrift stores - and there were several.
In the first one, I found the piece of pottery (above) which I adore for its "naive" quality,
shape and size. Lying in it are the earrings I bought.
They appear to have been locally made (there are many crafters & artisans in the area).
Just in side the entrance to another store, there was a huge bin of books
offered for 10 cents each. It took me awhile, but I came up with these treasures.
Do I need one more book? No!
But I couldn't leave THIS one (below) behind.
A vintage Golden Book in quite good condition!
Elsewhere in North Carolina, but a few days ago,
I found THESE....
...a needle-worked picture of a red-roofed, cozy cottage and another piece of pottery--
both of which fit small collections I have back home.
