Hopelessly behind in reading blog posts AND SOME MONEY IS SPENT...
what does this have to do with pottery, you say? NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING!!!!!!!!!
Here's my buddy Kate the watch repair lady picking at the chain of the train watch that I AM GETTING FOR CHRISTMAS. I made an offer, there was a counter offer, I pulled out the check book. It works beautifully and is from 1916. You can see the little hunter (clamshell case watch) sitting there with Kate. Nobody wants it, it is depised!!! Why? Because it is a pretty little thing, not solid gold, and the price is very good. But it is, I found before I bought it, BROKEN. I said ixnay. Fix it, I said, and I will buy it. We shall re-meet next week.
The other hunter I mentioned below, solid gold??? Whopping huge price, super expensive, worth the same as a used Toyota HAHAHAHA! Not for me.
So, the lovely train pocket watch will be mine, supposedly, on December 25. Maybe the little hunter too, it is a totally pretty thing.
