January 16, 2010: Trash or Treasure

Originally uploaded by arholder2003

Trash or Treasure? The saying goes "one man's trash is another man's treasure" When my dad was sick with cancer and taking treatments in my state's capital city, we spent many hours in flea markets when he was up to it. I began collecting Westmoreland old quilt pattern milk glass and Blue Willow china during that time. These pieces were considered expendable by someone who put them up for sale and I bought them. I have continued adding to the collection since my father's passing, but don't get out much to search for rare pieces anymore. Perhaps, this will be the year?
