Vintage Delights

These roses are so beautifully done....

I've been at it again ~ collecting when I just don't have anymore room to put things (...pssst - there's always room, OK?). I blame the arrival of my sister-in-law's recent move here from the other side of Canada. Hubs has asked me to curb my vintage appetite, but compelled by proper etiquette and all, I just had to show her where I find all manner of good things for cheap. So, I leave you with some recent finds that were just too affordable to pass by. 

This so so pretty and I scored three small bowls with saucers.
Pretty in pink

I have a fondness for soft greens

Not sure if these are vintage but they were calling out to me.

So pretty and, sadly, no matching tea cup
Another lonely piece without a saucer but how could I resist its beauty?
So delicate... a couple sips of tea and the cup is empty


  1. WOW! What treasures!!! With all your new tea cups I hope your are linking up to all the "tea" linky parties on Tuesdays!!! Here is the link to Sandi's
    TEATIME TUESDAY {she's even on PEI!}, at the end of her post you will find links to all the other "tea" parties on would be a shame not to show off all your pretty finds each week! ;}

  2. Oh, those are ALL so pretty. I think the lone saucer is my favorite. Who knows, maybe one day, your treasure hunting will yield the teacup. Hope so.

    Hope you have a lovely day,
    Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)

  3. I can't resist a pretty saucer or lone tea cup. I bothers me not one iota if I don't have a matched set. I just fall in love with the design, so artfully done. I recently found the prettiest little pansy saucer. Had to buy it for a hefty price of 25 cents!
