pretty pretty

Today was the first day I have gone out to hit the garage sales.
I found a ton of pretty things.
I have not been out for the last two years...I am so happy to be back in action.

I found six beautiful tea cups and saucers....I love tea cups!
A painting of a daisy, a small mirror and a big one too, four pinky silk napkins,
some cookie cutters that I will use in a future craft project.

aah! I love tea cups!

a fresh water pearl necklace, earrings and two bracelets,
a silver butter tray with matching knife,
a little blue and white plate

this beautiful embroidered peacock...
it does need to be re- stretched.

Hi Ally, what a brilliant day you had ...... I'm one for mirrors too and pretty tea cups and that peacock is really gorgeous ..... don't go leaving it for another two years *!*

Oh wow, you certainly did find some beautiful treasures!! That's what I should have been doing today, going to yard sales but I've been too lazy to go out! lol I so love the tea cups you found...wish I could go with you next time:-) xox

What great finds! I love yard sales and little second hand shops.

The teacups ::sigh::

I have a small collection of pretty cups ...

The collection was started by my mom then given to me. My father's mother would give her gifts of teacups ... and so it goes. I look for them now too! The collection threatened to get out of hand if I didn't place a perimeter on it, so I limit my finds to violets, pansies & ferns! Okay ... a pretty handpainted rose cup is never passed by. Love roses too.

Do you drink your tea from yours? I adore setting up teaparties with mismatched china & silver.

What a lovely day of successful treasure hunting you had! Wish I could go along with you ... Imagine what we would find with two of us on the lookout!

So love to see you visiting the cottage.
Stop by for tea again soon.
=^..^= love, zU
