Vintage Treasure Chest

I have new additions to my
Vintage Treasure Chest
that I thought you might all like a little peek at.
This beautiful
Lily Teacup
was only 69 cents at a local thrift shop.
There was no saucer
but who cares?
I love the gold edging.
And, of course, I had to purchase this
Rose Teacup
Once again no saucer
but also less than a dollar!
This sweet little cup and saucer was a Valentine gift
from my
Dear Sister
Bridget
I found this cup at a local Antique Mall.
Perfect for a bunch of flowers!
It's a mustache cup.
This beautiful
Hull Vase
was a gift from a close friend.
It had belonged to her Mother~In~Law
who has been moved into a nursing home.
A dear, sweet lady I have known since my early teenage years.
I will treasure it always.
It looks gorgeous on my
Antique Ladies Secretary Desk
in my dining room.
Not to mention I have found a practical use for it
until I have some flowers from my garden.
I love baskets and can never have too many.
I paid $1.00 for this one for my foyer.
I still get mail that trickles in for each of my married daughters.
Now they know to look in the basket when they come to visit.
My sister actually purchased this needlepoint piece for herself.
But I just had to show it to you.
She is going to use it to recover a chair seat.
It came from the same thrift store I found
the two teacups at.
Cost?
$4.99
She and I love to treasure hunt together!
All it takes is a little pocket money
&
a pinch of
 
 
I hope everyone's week is getting off to a very
hoppy
beginning!
I know mine is! :)))

  1. Hello Danette!
    I love your vintage treasures! The tea cups and basket are so pretty - and what great prices! The Hull vase is my favorite...I have 2 pieces of Hull, and would love to collect more, but the price is always too high for me. What a thoughtful and generous friend that gave you such a beautiful gift. I love finding treasures, but to recieve one from a friend that has such wonderful memories with it is a true treasure. Have a wonderful day Danette!
