Color Coordinated Thrifting!

I found this precious little tea cup and saucer at my favorite thrift store!

So perfect...without even a chip!

Do you think it looks nice on this tablecloth?

DSCN9389

Yes?

DSCN9387

Hhhhmmmm.....this isn’t a tablecloth but the top I was wearing when I shopped! heehee!

I came home and washed my little cup and sat down with it, put my glasses on to read the bottom and looked down and realized my top perfectly matched the tea set! (It says Winterling Kirchenlamitz Bavaria on the bottom)

I’m good...but I didn’t know I was THIS good! haha!

And look at all the little wooden ornies I found in a bin full of junk...I mean treasures!

The tiny basket and container were part of the deal, too.

(I’ve turned the basket around to the pretty side now!)

I also got three other little Christmas treasures that I’ll save for another day!

It was half price day at the Thrift store so my bill rang up to $2.07 for everything!!!

Oh, what FUN!

Oh you are good! Very.

That sweet little red bird would've been worth every cent of what you paid and more.

Your teacup is lovely and how funny that is matches your top. Love all those little wooden ornaments. I've been trying to find some to put on a tree for my new Grandson. I might have to go thrifting again! hugs, Linda

Your little bird caught my eye- I have a bunch of them on my tree. Different sizes, too. I wish I had thrift stores to go through. In an old town like this, you'd think there would be an overload of them. Oh well.
Thanks for the post.

The ultimate - dishes and clothing in same design! The little wooden ornaments reminds me of one my son gave his teacher...35 years ago!

Antiques And Teacups said...

So cute! I inherited a Winterling dish set. Love the teacup and I love the wooden ornaments which probably came from the same area...maybe??? Great shirt too! LOL!

Yep, I fell for the tablecloth trick, too! I honestly cannot see a pixie without thinking of you, I hope you know! xo Barbara

You scored big time! Looks like I'm not finding anything great at the thrift stores lately, but I haven't spent as much time there, either. Can't wait to see what else you found!

Ames said...

Maybe you are drawn to the colors you wear? It's a nice tea cup and the little wooden ornies are as cute as can be!
Say, does the tea taste better in that little tea cup? LOL. Someone once told me at one of those in home crystal parties that orange juice taste better when you drink it from crystal. Ha!~Ames

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...

Gotta love the thrift store finds.
Those little ornies are perfect.
The teacup is beautiful, and what
luck it's Bavarian china!

Donna said...

What neat treasures! All of that would cost at least 10 times that here. We have the worst thrift stores and they charge outrageous prices.

Tammy said...

You have such good luck at Thrift stores, Diane! I may get to hit a few tomorrow myself. I'm off work and the hubs and I will be out running errands. If time permits we're going to make a couple of stops. Wish me luck!

Cameron said...

Wow! Great finds! I'd totally be doing a happy dance at the cash register for a day like that!

Diane Writes said...

You are really a great find shopper name mate! I love all the stuff. Those little treasures are so adorable.!!!

GardenofDaisies said...

I just love all the little wooden ornaments you found!! And you must wear that shirt when you have your tea party and drink from that cup! :-) It's perfect!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh that tea cup is so gorgeous!! You are always so blessed to find such awesome deals!!

Anne said...

You're so funny! actually that top would be a beautiful tablecloth! Great little finds... i was thrifting yesterday too!

The teacup is very lovely but I really love your top! Gorgeous pattern and colors :)

I liked the recommendation of books in your latest post. And what fun meeting your favorite author! You do look very happy in the photo!
