Thrifty Finds on a Monday

Here are some more end-of-summer thrifty finds:


I've long wanted one of these milk glass "hands" to use for photographing small items for my shop.  I found it at a thrift shop, and then the little silver spoons (one of which is coin silver!) were 50 cents each at an estate sale.

Such pretty details!

A shabby old plate from Goodwill, in all its chipped glory.  I don't think I've ever seen this back mark before:


But the discovery that made me swoon is this little tea cup and saucer:

You'll recall how much I loved Mt. Vernon when we visited this summer.  Well, this pattern is called Mt. Vernon!

I love it like crazy!

Look at the colors...

and all the pretty details!

Another pretty McCoy planter, footed this time, for my collection.
A wonderful Adams, England trinket dish -- sweet!

I'll be joining in at:

How beautiful! I truly LOVE the milk glass hands! My ex-hubby and I lived in a 100 year old Queen Anne Victorian Home downtown for 12 years and I still have a lot of my Victorian collectibles. I love that era! (although I'm sure you'd never know it if you saw my blog - but I really am a girly-girl at heart! LOL)
