Treasure Hunting

Hello and Welcome Spring

What's the weather like in your neck of the woods? Ours is unseasonably mild, high-forties and sunny. No complaints from me, though I'm not foolish enough to think it will last....

Have you found any treasures lately? I had a ball out picking this past week and even ended up finding a few keepers.

The pretty cup and saucer is marked "Summer Glory" Royal Albert England. I couldn't resist it at $1.99. I'll grab a little bit of spring wherever I can find it....

The two small plates are Syracuse China (.49 cents each). I'm a sucker for restaurant supply dishes and have collected several sets in different patterns. I like the scalloped edge on the pink and white plate, but I rarely see this pattern in my travels; when I do it's either a lone saucer or badly scuffed.

I think I'm in love....this old bowl is so elegant and the towels are my favorite fabrics and colors. They have already found a home in my linen closet.

I spent about $30 and had some much needed fun. I picked up a few old and well-made antiques to resell on eBay and a few things to put away for the Etsy store I haven't yet opened. ;-)

Happy hunting!
