Navajo blanket/poncho made from two narrow woven panels sewn together, natural carded/spun wool. Found at Ventura flea last month, directly opposite C street-can cause some priority dilemmas!. This Sunday Diggers.
Two-Two Grey Hills style Navajo rugs found at PCC this month, minor damage to the top smaller rug, the larger one being in great condition with a few minor (and dated) repairs. The Two Grey Hills regional style, using only natural wool carded and spun in different ratio's to produce, greys, browns, beige and white was promoted by JB Moore at his Crystal trading post in reaction to the color explosion in navajo weaving brought on by the introduction of German Town yarn and Analine dyes.

Small Zuni and Acoma pots, part of a small group found at Rose Bowl last weekend which came from one estate, collected in the 40's through 60's. I like finding intact elements of an individuals collection, their careful selection informing your own accumulative direction/disorder.
"I had never met a girl like her -- ever, she induced madness. She was a very powerful presence. She had an insouciance that wouldn't quit. She was very self-assured. ... She also had an overpowering scent, and it drove me crazy."

In house relative here (my camera shortchanging the reds)
I found this flyer behind the stove whilst doing some demo work at the new house. It's an invitation to a sale that took place decades ago, addressed to the actor James Anderson who lived in the house during the 1960's. Known as a hired gun/bad guy in various westerns of the day, but perhaps most famous for his portrayal of Bob Ewell in To Kill A Mockingbird.
