I had a leisurely time browsing at the thrift store this morning. I found a few treasures but when I got home and changed my clothes ( I was wearing slacks and wanted something cooler) I found I had two large smudges on my bum, as if I'd sat on something dirty. I don't know at what point it happened but I sure hope I wasn't walking around the store like that!!!
The first 'treasure' is a pretty creamer about four inches high, with a lightly patterned brown bottom, a gold band separating it from the creamy top that has flowers painted on it. There are some numbers on the bottom, nothing else.
This pretty tea cup had no saucer so was marked at 1.99 and Tuesday is Senior's discount day so I got an additional 30% off. Couldn't leave it there. Roses encircle the top. There is also a gold band at the very top and around the pedestal base, and the handle. Sorry the picture is a bit fuzzy.
This next piece is not a plate because it's perfectly flat and thicker than a plate would be. I'm thinking it's a trivet. In any case it is hand painted in Spain and I love the intense colours.
Fall is coming and although now the days are too warm for comfort soon I'll be wanting to wrap a cozy blanket around my shoulders. Never mind that I already own more than a few, this snowflake fleece blanket is so incredibly soft I gave in and bought it.
