My Treasures~Vintage Things

Sometimes a mistake is a 
'Good Thing'
I posted 'My Treasures' in March 2010.
I started blogging in December 2009 and now four years later my
blogging has become much easier. The first year of blogging was all about 
designing my blog and learning to take photos. During September 2013, I started to label my posts. This vintage post accidentally was published instead of reverting back to the original date...Today (Sunday) I thought this post would be perfect to publish.   Downton Abbey is my favorite program and I love all things vintage. 
Hope you enjoy my story and some vintage things too.
(I didn't know how to make photos larger)
I am so happy to share my vignettes with everyone.  This is my favorite treasure.  The cup, saucer and dessert plate.  I collect different tea sets for my tea party business.  I found this C.H. Field Haviland Limoges set at an estate sale.  It is in near perfect condition.  There was just one set.  Lucky me!  My evening purse and gloves are another find from the estate sale.  The gloves fit a very small hand, but I love the style.  The beautiful red tulips were a gift from my sweetheart on Valentine's Day.  Fabulous.

I love this simple tea pot and  matching cups and saucers. I also found these at an estate sale one rainy day in January.  I love to sit by this sunny window and enjoy my cup of tea.
"The Garden Gift"  by Maureen Love is another favorite treasure. I also found these vintage satin boxes at an estate sale.  They are wonderful for storage and  great to use for lingerie or jewelry.
I think this tea pot is a James Sadler.  I cannot find one that looks exactly like it, but the style looks the same as a Sadler.  The lace pillow came from my bed and the lemon is from my mom's lemon tree.

Fighting Spanish Armada 1588 is on top of the tea pot. 
 My final treasure is this vintage tea pot I have had for 50 years.  My tea box is filled with my favorite English tea, and the lemons are from my mom's tree. Lemon is so good in tea.

  6. You have collected some really nice vintage tea things over the years. I think we all grow with our blogs, learning what we were afraid to try at the beginning and from other bloggers who are quite good at explaining how to do certain aspects of blogging.

  7. Happy New Year Betty! Your vintage treasures are just wonderful and I'm so happy you have shared them with us. My first blogging photos were pretty sad but I have learned so much the past few years from all my blogging friends. Thank you for sharing and have a lovely week.


  8. Amazing and thoughtful detail in each vignette. Wonderful to have you celebrating the New Year at Seasonal Sundays.
