My front yard. NH is a winter wonderland today. #newhampshire #newengland #snowday

@mostlymidmodern

Another find from last weekend. My first thought was, “David Weidman” made rugs?” But no, it’s a little too plain for him. Bird is printed, not woven, on wool. #tapestry #wallhanging #mcm #midcenturymodern #bird #thrifting #thriftbreakthursday

@mostlymidmodern

A necktie is still a great gift - if it’s by Gene Meyer, Fornasetti, or Keith Haring (otherwise it’s lame). These beauties are available in my Etsy store (link in profile). #genemeyer #genemeyerties #fornssetti #keithharing #stockingstuffers #guftsforhim

Picked up this tall, slim beauty today. Believe I have matched the signature to artist Roberta Griffith, who studied with the Heinos and has had a pretty important career. Awaiting confirmation but it really is a great piece. #pottery #artpottery #mcm #midcenturymodern

Cleaning out the “archives” last night, I came across these two tiles I bought years ago at the beginning of my thrifting obsession. Knew nothing about them, only that l liked them. Packed away in a drawer and forgotten about. Pulled them out last night and was like, hey, I know that logo! Isn’t it fun when that happens!? #paolosoleri #arcosantitile #cosantifoundation

Saying goodbye to this one is tough...but bittersweet too because it is going to the daughter of Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman!! That takes the sting away, but I will still miss it!!! #evelynackerman #catandbird #ackermantapestry #evelynandjeromeackerman #californiamodernism #mcm #midcenturymodern

@mostlymidmodern

Just @mike_lynch_cartoons and me for #thanksgiving this year so we skipped the turkey entirely and made gnocchi from scratch with meatballs and tomato sauce made from the last of our home-grown tomatoes. Yummy. Much wine and movies to follow. Happy Thanksgiving

@mostlymidmodern

ACKERMAN IS SOLD. Just listed these great items in my Etsy store. Follow link in profile for prices and details. Much more to come! #ackerman #evelynackerman #ackermantapestry #scheierpottery #edwinandmaryscheier #dondrumm #emaus #mexicomodern

Pair of wild turkeys caught feasting at the bird feeder this morning. That’s right fellas, eat up! BwaHaha 😈!!!! #thanksgiving #turkey #wildturkey

@mostlymidmodern

Not a religious person, but I’ve said quite a few “thank gods” today.

@mostlymidmodern

My other find from last night’s #thrifting trip: #arabiafinland #carambola vase by #heikkiorvola. This is the smallest version, about 3 inches tall. I actually thought this #bonechina object was made of plastic when I first picked it up. #thriftstorefinds #thriftbreakthursday

@mostlymidmodern

My second #Scheier art pottery find - this time at the thrift store! It’s been a bit of a dry spell up here but finding #Scheierpottery at both the beginning and end of the summer makes up for it. Sorry Sam - it is not your new bowl! #edwinandmaryscheier #pottery #artpottery #midcenturymodern #mcm #thriftedartthursday #thriftscorethursday #thriftbreakthursday

@mostlymidmodern

My one lone find in the past week was this very unusual “spinning top” vase by #christiantortu. Described on the label as a “signed glass something” and displayed upside down, I thought at first it was a stopper without a carafe and then maybe an interesting sculptural paperweight. Once at home, with trusty magnifying glass, I was able to make out the signature. #christiantortuvase #sculpturalvase #artglass #lastzinniasoftheseason #thriftstorefinds #spinningtopvase

Out for a drive in the country today and spotted these guys. I know nothing about chickens but this one is pretty attractive. #nicecamoflage #chickensofinstagram

@mostlymidmodern

Still pops of color here and there in New Hampshire, but the next storm will probably be it. #nomoreleaves #leafpeeping #autumn2020 #newhampshire #newengland

@mostlymidmodern

Lucky enough to find these two shamrock plates by Pepe Mendoza over the weekend. Heavy brass with turquoise ceramic inlay from the 1950s. #pepemendoza #pepemendozaart #mexicanmodern #mexicomodern #shamrock #clover #turquoise #mcm #midcenturymodern #twosdsy

Everyone needs a nap buddy. Dexter and Fergus sharing some zzzzzzeeees on a sunny Sunday. #catsofinstagram #catsofinsta #catstagram #napbuddies

Only one find so far this week, but it’s the biggest #krenitbowl I’ve ever seen. 15 inches in diameter. #thriftstorefinds #thrifted #thriftbreak #krenit #mcm #midcenturymodern #danishdesign

@mostlymidmodern

Sometimes in #thrifting a theme will emerge and sometimes there is no rhyme nor reason. This is stuff picked up over the last 10ish days. Pic 1: A 2nd #laurellamp to go with the one I found a couple weeks ago (from same #thriftstore so guessing they just got separated); Crazy mid-century horse ashtray (Stig Lindberg style but have not been able to ID yet, probably from Japan); Two CHONKY lucite bangles that I HAD to have; And the tallest #empoli stoppered decanter I have ever seen - 26+ inches tall. Pic 2: collection of red Finel, Finland bowls and a Dansk teapot. Pic3: bronze (I think) modernist figural sculpture. I guess the theme is, I love it all. Disclaimer: all thrifted from multiple locations except the horse, which was from an antique mall. #laurellamps #midcenturyhorse #etruscanhorse #lucitebracelet #lucitejewelry #empoliglass #empolicasedglass #finelfinland #dansk #sculpture #mcm #midcenturymodern #thriftbreak

Another piece of mystery pottery from the weekend. Italian with Etruscan-style horses encircling the vase. Marked “Italy” and numbered on bottom. Any leads appreciated. #mcm #midcenturymodern #italianpottery #pottery #etruscan #thriftstorefinds #thriftbreak #mysterymonday

@mostlymidmodern

A few recent goodies, including two mystery pots. Any ideas, anyone? The flat, round pot has a mark on bottom that looks like a “none” symbol; I.e., a circle with a slash. #mcm #midcenturymodern #thriftstorefinds #thriftbreak #laurellamp #weedpot #lagardotackett

@mostlymidmodern

We built a little fire pit and are having our inaugural fire tonight. Wine, a campfire, s’mores - but then I get to sleep in my own bed. Not a bad #staycation

@mostlymidmodern

Some recent glass finds. I think the tall teal bottle may have had a stopper originally, but I can’t resist this stuff. #casedglass #italianglass #empoli #empoliglass #mcm #midcenturymodern

Calling all experts on Tarascan wood and bone chess sets from Mexico - any information on these would be welcome. This set belongs to my father-in-law, who remembers playing chess with his father in the 1940s - so it is at least that old (he thinks it might be from the ’30s). It appears to be lathe-turned and is very elaborate; stamped Mexico on bottom. FIL would like to sell it so I need to come up with a valuation. Any leads helpful. Have already looked on eBay and Etsy. Thanks! #vintagechess #vintagechesssset #tarascan #tarascanchess #carvedchesspieces #woodandbonechessset #mexicanchessset #madeinmexico #hecheinmexico

Holy shit! About 2.5 years ago I posted here the belief/hope that some day I would find a piece of Scheier art pottery in the wild. Today was the day! Ok, it wasn’t at a thrift store or yard sale but was on sale at an antiques mall, where the seller clearly had no clue, even though it’s signed and dated. This 4-sided face vase is 18 inches tall and is a pretty special piece - certainly a holy grail for me. . #scheierpottery #scheier #edwinscheier #maryscheier #edwinandmaryscheier #artpottery #midcenturymoddern #mcm #thriftbreaktuesday
