These were found at different yard sales. The two little teacups and saucers are precious and are stamped "Made in China". The lone teacup is stamped "Colclough China, made in London, England." The bowl in back (left) has no stamp nor does the gravy boat dish. Don't care, they are pretty and unusual.
I found this butter dish and thought it was nice. It has some crazing but no stamp.
How about this platter? I did make a picture of its stamp because of what it says.
Designed by Bess Myerson. The Homer Laughlin China Co. I researched and Bess Myerson is the first Jewish woman to win Miss America in 1945. That's who I thought she was when I found this platter.
This is just a pretty plate and teacup. The spoon had been hot glued to the plate and the lady that I bought it from said it was a bird feeder! When I took it out of the dishwasher, the spoon had come off! Yeah!
Two Hardee's mugs from 1986. My sister had just asked me the other day to find her one because she liked drinking from them. I had one in my stash and gave it to her. She didn't want to take it, but I told her I would find another and I found two!
The mugs were found at an estate sale along with this Campbell's Soup fork and London spoon.
A Red Hat lady .... isn't she lovely?
A laptop case for $1!
An adjustable hole punch for 25cents.
Weight Watcher's cookbooks for my sister and The Notebook. Cried through the movie, so now I'm going to read the novel.
Two boxes of Christmas ornaments $2 apiece. I might give these to Holly and Craig.
The last yard sale we went to, Janet stayed in the car and Micki and I went to investigate. From the road, it looked like another bummer, but when we got to the garage, jackpot!! These ladies had a beautiful quilt they were raffling off and oodles of fat quarters and patterns! I didn't take any pictures of the fat quarters and quilt patterns I bought for Mother because I took them to her after we got home. But I bought this pattern because I "may" attempt to make a purse! Notice I said "attempt"! I haven't sewn in a while.
Micki works in the cafeteria at the Jr.High school. They are building a new high school that is supposed to be open this fall. She called me at work the other day and asked me if I wanted a sewing cabinet. They were selling the ones from the old high school for $10! Of course, I said yes!! Here it is....
Good deal,huh? Even came with a stool! Now, I need to put my sewing machine in it and start using it! Wish me luck!
