Digging For Treasure

Recently I took a trip to Savannah with a great group of friends. My studio mate, Chad, was throwing a birthday party for his partner Bryan and decided that that was the place to do it. Chad went to SCAD and lived there for 10 years so he made a great tour guide.

The haunted bar hop, drag show, great food and company aside, hands down, my favorite part of the trip was looking for treasure in dirt lots.

For years Chad had been telling me about some of the lots with broken bits of glass and pottery from as far back as the 1800's. He has jars full of these little treasures and has been lucky enough to find doll pieces and old bone buttons. These little pieces of history are just laying there on the surface waiting for someone to come by and take them home. So I did.

We didn't have too much time but I managed to find a few things. For now they are in an old tin but I am on the hunt for a nice vintage jar to put them in. Clearly there's a pattern here.

Little bits of delicious blue dish ware.

Speaking of unearthing treasure.......
I was hunting for something in the studio this week and found a stash of vintage wallpaper.
After scanning and photographing all of it; I will be listing it on etsy.

Thanks for dropping by!
