She Scores…

My trips to my favorite Goodwill store in the area have been very infrequent the last couple of years. Lately I need to have something specific that I’m looking for to hit the thrifts or be right in the neighborhood doing something else. This last week I was looking for a book by a certain author and saw this in the collectibles section.

This is Lomonosov Golden Garden china made in Russia.

Lomanosov2Lomanosov3I bought these pieces for $29.95. When I looked online for prices just the cup and saucer was going for $75.00.

I need another tea set like a hole in the head but since this was a Russian set I wanted it.  I am going to release one of my other sets for this one. I figure that’s a good trade off.

We had a productive weekend at this old house. I’m looking forward to a week where I’ll not be confused on what day it is. Holidays in the middle of the week throw my day compass off.

I’m joining in with Mary at Little Red House for her weekly meme, Mosaic Monday.

Tea Things Tuesday ~ White

 

I found these pieces at a thrift store. They are Johnson Bros. I got several round and square dessert plates, too.

Tea Things Tuesday ~ Pink…

It’s time to visit Kim for Tea Things Tuesdays

 

These are a few of my tea cups with pink. Hope you all are having a lovely Fall. I’m still waiting for cool temperatures here in Southern California to give me the sense of Fall. Have a great week and have a cuppa soon!

This is a photograph of a window through a mirror of a great Tea Shop that has since changed hands and changed decor. I miss this Tea shop and the owner who was a gem.

 

These are a few of my blue tea cups and saucers.

There’s just something about Tea things that call to me. Hope you all have a lovely Tuesday wherever you may be…

Tablescape Thursday ~ Rose Colored Garden

When I’m at my home in Washington I usually change the tablecloth on our only dining table every couple weeks. Because our stay here is winding down and we have no more big events I took out a couple leaves from the table and found a shorter tablecloth. Having my new inspiration for Tablescape Thursday it was time to search high and low for what to add to the tablecloth.

 

I started with the hydrangea in one of my depression glass containers and candlesticks.

 

Some fun layering of plates. The smaller salad/dessert plate is Royal Swan, Blossomtime, Staffordshire, England. The larger floral edged plate is Nikko tableware.

 

The tea cups and saucers are Churchill. The gold tassel napkin rings were Target Christmas clearance. The tablecloth and napkins are from Goodwill.

Today’s Thrifty Treasures ~ June 22nd

It’s time to join Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for another Thrifty Treasures Monday! Thank you for hosting Rhoda. Just click on the button above to see more Treasures.

 

I found this cup and saucer by Unicorn, English Tableware, Made in Staffordshire, England at my local Goodwill. It was $3.00. I find it very hard to walk away from anything blue and white and at this price I wasn’t about to! This next purchase was a splurge for me…

 

I found this silverplate at a little Thrift store in my hometown. I really liked the pattern and there were 41 pieces. I paid $25.00 for all 41 pieces. I took my magnifying glass out to read Simeon L. & George H. Rogers Company X/TRA Oneida Ltd.

I have one more image to share with you of a little thrift store shopper at my local Goodwill.

 

She kept going back to the shoes to pick a new pair of heels to walk around the store in. LOL!

Happy Thrifty Monday to everyone. I was so amazed at all the goodies everyone found last week at such great prices. I’m looking forward to see what everyone found this week!

Three or More Tuesday ~

It’s time for Three or More at The Gypsy’s Corner. Visit Tam to join in on the fun posting anything you want that’s three or more.

I found these goodies today at my local Goodwill. Monday is Senior day and they give a 25% discount to anyone 55 or older. I bought all this stuff for $7.00. Four goblets that I think are really great, 5 napkins, and 3 Teacups and saucers. Thanks for visiting me and continuing to enable me in my Thrift store shopping addiction.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!
