Soon I was digging for
And glassware ...
Amber glass salts - etched on the bottom with a flower design. Very Art Deco.
French transferware - a bit shabby.
One dessert plate with three cups.
Too precious to be left behind.
Plus who could resist a pink rooster?
A stack of five Czech Bohemian china dinner plates with a rose border.
Love the fluted gilt edge.
Four pottery planters.
They look so good as a group.
My favorite is the small green cactus with the two senors.
Three pairs of tiny elephants.
Trunks raised for luck, of course!
Blue English rose ironstone soup bowl - quite old.
The vase is lovely and without any flaws.
Not marked Fire King or Pyrex, but resembles them.
A small apple jar - maybe for jam?
A hand-painted Blue Ridge dessert plate signed on the back by the artist.
Look at the hobnail rim.
I have a love for mismatched saucers.
I think everyone needs mismatched saucers.
Below is just a sample of the many I purchased.
Think gallery wall.
Think a muffin gift plate.
Think flowerpot coaster.
Think you must have some mismatched saucers because I have way too many.
My only restraint was purchasing only those with floral designs in pinks and blues.
That included most of them.
Well, I went digging for china and came home with bags and bags full.
It took quite some time to clean it all.
Maybe I forgot to mention most pieces were covered in grime and sticky goo from price tags.
Before I leave, I must tell you Linda at Coastal Charm has invited me to drag my junk over to Shop Talk this Friday. If you have not visited Shop Talk, you are missing out on discovering interesting shops from all around. Linda features one each Friday.
