New to me



I bought these glasses several years ago at a local thrift shop.





And I recently found these to match.









I love thrift stores.

Rafael's Mum said...

Isn't that lovely? I could see a quilt in the blue from the glasses.. Inspired by... gosh... what is she called again.. She was featured on Sewn not long ago with all the green leaves... Ingrid?? ...??? You could do that with blue leaves and flower inbetween... I just see it!

I love thrift stores and in California we have a lot of them. Great way to get fabric. It is amazing, you get sheets, shirts, curtains, dresses, all great for fabric for quilting. My problem is, I buy even if I don't need. Oh well, great bargins.

Wow, that is one lucky find...or finds. Such a pretty pattern.

Linda and Piwacket said...

What great finds! There is something so cheerful about the blue.

amylouwho said...

those are adorable! I love that you have the glasses to match! I swear we have the worst thrift store here. I'm hoping for better luck when we move!

lucky you with those glasses!! I have about a hundred pieces of the set. Several of my glasses have been broken, unfortunately. I believe I'm only missing the butter plate and cover and the tea pot. Enjoy!!

I knew we were kindred souls....I have ONE plate just like that and I love it soooo Many years ago when we cleaned out my grandma's place getting her ready to move into a nursing home I came across that one plate and it has been a favorite ever since....that is our birthday cake plate! Getting ready to put another cake on it this weekend since we will be celebrating 4 birthdays on Saturday!!:)

Kim said...

Very cute dishes......probably look better with a cinnamon roll on a plate.....how are those cinnamon roll recipes coming along anyway?

I can't believe all those folks entered to win the thread.......man! I'm still hoping its me :0)

Happy sewing

Jean said...

Those were definitely the dishes my mom had. We lived in the St. Louis area, if that makes any difference. We had them for years and years until she replace them with an all brown pattern.

Dena said...

A little jealous of the dish set there girlie. So super cute! And glasses to match. I would say you hit the motherload!!

Anonymous said...

Regina said...

My mom has one platter in that pattern. I covet it!!! :-) Lucky you!

Amy said...

How stinkin cute! How fun to find the matching dishes, especially years later!
I did that once with some plates, only it was the same day at two different places. One store had 4 dinner plates and another store had 4 dessert plates.

Shell said...

wow! how lucky was that!! they're very cute too

Pink Lemonade Bags said...

Great set! How stinkin' cute are they! Love them...

Alexis said...

What a lucky find. Love the colour and pattern.

Tina said...

My mother has this set, but it's not in great shape. It was used a lot and loved. I don't think there are any glasses left. I'll have to ask her where and when she bought them.

Gail :) said...

The whole set is FAB! What is the pattern name? (well if you don't mind sharing) You know I secretly want to be just like you LOL!

BrendaLea, the Prpldy said...

Wow! ?That is a beautiful set! I would be lost without my thrift shops. They are the best shopping and so much fun! Never know what y0ou will find.

What a fun pattern. Thrift stores are the bomb! I love finding treasures there.

Sandra said...

What a pretty pattern! I love thrift stores and antiques. Just brought home a Singer 201 this afternoon. Can't wait to get it restored so it can be enjoyed...by me!

Katie Jean said...

ooooh I have such envy!! I love, love that pattern. I have a few plates & serving dishes with that pattern and I search for more everytime I'm at the thrift store. Lucky you!!

biggirllittlegirl said...

I love that whole set! I'm so jealous!

Lynne S of Oz said...

Oh boy, I'm jealous! What a great set of glasses and now crockery!
Once in a while, one comes across a great find in an op shop (thrift store). My favourite one is still my watermelon cup and teapot set:-)

Barb said...

Gotta love thrift store finds.

Tine said...

SCORE!!!!
Beautiful dishes

Brenna'sMom said...

AWESOME!! You must have some great thrift stores near you or some great luck. I never find big sets like that. I have a wonderfully hideous mash up of dishes though because I can never pass them up.

Linda said...

Oh those are so pretty! Don't you just love thrift stores! Lucky you.

sallgood said...

What luck to find them! I have been on a bit of a thrifting freeze, but I may HAVE to this weekend! Thanks for the inspiration! :D

trish said...
