Treasures from My Travels



Welcome Sweet Tea Friends!!

It is just pouring outside today and so sadly our outdoor tea times may be over until next year.

  



Would you like to see my newest treasure finds on my travels the last couple of weeks?


The first is this Pope Gossen U.S.A. Rose Point teapot that  I found for $6.99 at Good Will.

  

I love the rose bud lid



and handle.


The pattern so resembles the roses in Royal Albert's American Beauty.


The teacup I found at The Value Village in Vernon, B.C.  Hubby and I have been doing some road trips recently!  Such fun.


It was $5.99.







Luckily I cut the pink and white roses before the rain started last night.  



Last week  we had a little escape to Victoria.  I wanted to share this vintage metal turquoise tray that I fell in love with. 


 Hubby thought it was over-priced at $14.95 but I knew the colours would match the cottage and I had never seen one like it.


  I also found this palest of pink Tuscan teacups for $3.00 at James Bay Thrift. 


Don't you love finding treasures?




The weather is perfect for cleaning or dusting my pretties and  and I must have a break from thrifting and buying treasures.  At least for a couple of days.  Lol. 





I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world!  
Blessings, 
Karen

A September Tea in the Garden


Hello Sweet Tea Friends

I'm sorry I missed you this week.  Hubby and I went to Victoria and visited many lovely thrift stores.   


Have you ever been to Victoria B.C.?  I know that Ruth at Antiques and Teacups has.  You really must go because it has many shops with our favourite things - teacups!


I found this Royal Albert September teacup Michaelmass Daisy at my now favourite  store "Good Things" on Oak Bay Blvd in Victoria.  I have almost every month now.  (Only February is on the treasure hunting list.)



The sun is out today but I am not sure how many outdoor teatimes we have left. Sadly my summer flowers are all looking a little dull and wilted.  
  



The blue teapot is a Sadler. 



The pretty blue vase was once my dear mother's.



The antique blue velvet chair was also mom's.  It got damaged at the home but I managed to glue the three pieces back together but hubby won't be allowed to sit on it.  Lol.



Thank you for your visit today.


Enjoy Sunny September!

Karen

Sad to Say Good-bye Summer!


Hello Tea Friends!

My impatiens don't want summer to end and neither do I.


It's been rainy this week and I know that fall is coming.  The days are getting shorter and hubby isn't able to golf until 8:30 pm. any more.



The one cup teapot is an Arthur Wood. 




The small sized white teacup is marked Peppertree Tabletops Made in China.





I found this teacup lamp at Goodwill for $6.00.


I changed its black and white lampshade to this pink and white rosebud to match our decor  for our outdoor teatime today.

  


Are you also a little sad that fall is soon approaching?




Thank you for your visit today!


See you next time!

Karen
