Amber from Follow The Yellow Brick Home had a great Easter Weekend Junkin’ Finds.  She found several things that are on my junking “want” list.  Great patina abounds on her finds.  My favorite find is an old rusty golf ball basket and a model Eiffel Tower.  Go check it out, she only hit three sales and spend a mere $8.  I would love to go junkin’ with Amber anytime!

Kathleen’s Pick

Dany from My Little Old World has made me smile in a big way. Not only has she shared with us the teacup and other goodies she received as a participant in The Enchanting Rose 10th Teacup & Mug Exchange, but she also shares with us her adorable Augustus bunny rabbit as well. If you’ve ever thought of joining in the teacup exchange, this is the post to read. And as far as adorable pets are concerned, I have always wanted a lop eared rabbit. After seeing the photos of Augustus my desire for a rabbit has been rekindled — just don’t tell my husband! Thank you, Dany,for making me smile!

Cecilia’s Pick

When it comes to setting a charming vintage tablescape, Lora from Create & Ponder is a girl after my own heart. In Add Luscious Layers to Your Tablescape, she shared step by step how to style a gorgeous garden-inspired table set with lovely vintage layers. These pottery serving pieces caught my eye, but you really must pay her a visit to enjoy the attention Lora pays to every single detail of her sweet spring tablescape.

Wordless Wednesday 141 ~ A Plate and Roses

No. 141 – From the post – Vintage Fascination No. 78

Vintage Fascination No. 122

Welcome back to another edition of Vintage Fascination.  This find is from a couple of months ago but I am just now getting it unpacked and ready for use.

As my daughter and I walked into our local Goodwill I spotted a huge lot of milk glass in the display case.  I hustled over to check it out.  It is a luncheon service for eight with lots of extras to go with it in Imperial Glass’s  Vintage Grape pattern. The price was good and it was senior day with 25% off so how could I not take all this milk glass goodness home with me.

 Imperial Glass Corporation founded in 1901 was located in Bellaire, Ohio.  It became a subsidiary of Lenox, Inc., in 1973 and sold to Arthur R. Lorch in 1981 eventually going bankrupt in 1984.  Imperial Glass produced this pattern from 1950 until 1980.

First up are the luncheon plates with an all over grape pattern.  The plates are 8 inches wide.  The bread and butter plates are identical to the luncheon plates but only 6 3/4 inches wide.  With an all over pattern, they are simply stunning.

The saucers have an embossed grape leaf in the center

and the footed cups are so sweet.

The set includes eight Champagne/Tall Sherbet glasses.  Won’t they be perfect to serve something pretty and pink?

The set also includes eight 5 3/8 inch water goblets.

The extras include:

 Quarter Pound Covered Butter Dish

16-ounce Pitcher

Footed Creamer and  Open Sugar

 Salt and Pepper Shakers

Pickle Dish

Fruit Bowl

I wonder if originally the set included dinner plates or maybe it was always just a luncheon set.  I can’t wait to do a tablescape with these dishes so be looking for it soon.

By purchasing the set, each piece cost me less than fifty cents.   Of course, my daughters just roll their eyes at me and remind me that I already have too many dishes and it’s true.

Thank you for visiting today and come back soon!

Simple Sunday

Remember that cat and kitten planter I found a couple of weeks ago?  I decided how to use in in my bedroom makeover.

It’s a planter so I’m going to use it as such.

So sweet!

Here are my supplies.  I had everything on hand.  The faux succulents and white rocks are from the Dollar Tree.  The moss collection is from Hobby Lobby.

 First, I added a thick layer of white rocks to help hold the faux succulents in place.

Next, I placed the faux succulents in the rock layer and tucked the moss in around the succulents covering the rocks.

I love the way this little Cat and Kitten planter came together.

 Here’s a sneak peak of my bedroom makeover.  It is a cloudy day so I’m getting some weird shadows on the wall.

Thanks for dropping by today.

Karee at The Vintage Chateau loves charm bracelets. Her book club recently read The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper, an enchanting story of a widower who discovers a charm bracelet that his wife never wore. Arthur set out to learn the story behind each charm. Karee understands the need to know about each charm and makes the analogy that a charm bracelet is a “scrapbook” with each charm bringing to mind a special memory. Karee had so many charms she even created a charm necklace. She plans to start a charm bracelet for her only granddaughter’s eighth birthday so she can start making her own “jewelry scrapbook”. So now I’m off to find the charm bracelet from my teens.

Mickie from The Speckled Hen Cottage brought back warm memories from my childhood with her recent post on Ye Old Curiosity Shop’s green transferware by Royal. Mickie’s been collecting it for quite some time now and she shares with us some unexpected additions to her collection. She also shares how she started out on her collecting journey. It’s a lovely story, and definitely worth a read!

Cecilia’s Pick

I’ve really been enjoying Paula’s weekly series Vintage Monday, on her blog Sweet Pea. Last week, she shared some charming Easter Decor including this precious Blue Ridge Pottery lamb plate from the 40s that belonged to her dad. Isn’t it the sweetest? Pop over to see the rest of Paula’s vintage treasures!

Vintage Fascination No. 121

Welcome back for another edition of Vintage Fascination.  Yes, I missed the last week with my fun giveaway of an Aladdin Heritage Plaid Lunch kit.  If you entered the winner’s name is at the end of this post.

My daughter and I went thrifting last week and here is what I couldn’t come home without.

Couldn’t pass up this nice deep round basket with leather handles.  It probably isn’t vintage but I never leave behind a nice basket with great storage potential at a good price.

This pretty Knowles platter is joining my collection of pink themed platters. It features pink and white dogwood blossoms with taupe stems and leaves.

The pattern is Blossom Time.  Most Knowles dinnerware has a date code under their back stamp, where the first two numbers show the year of production.  So this platter made in the USA is from 1951. The Knowles factory was in West Virginia but closed in 1963.

My bedroom is undergoing a few changes and I am looking for white/neutral decor.  When I saw this kitschy white cat and kitten planter I just couldn’t resist.  I found two like it on ETSY for $12 but I paid about a dollar for mine at Goodwill.  It doesn’t have a maker’s mark that I can research but it is probably from the 60’s or 70’s.  Not sure how I’m going to use it in my bedroom, any suggestions?

While I was looking around I saw this sweet little Dutch boy and girl figurine.  I put in my cart thinking I probably wouldn’t buy it but it came home with me.  So it is joining my blue and white collection.  It does not have a trademark or country of origin.

You should never ever pass up a nice wooden cutting board in the thrift store.  They are a fraction of the cost you would pay regular retail.  Most of my wooden cutting boards are decor only but you can clean them up and use them too.

Drum Roll

The winner of the Aladdin Heritage Plaid Lunch Kit is Chelle and I have notified her via e-mail.
