A little English, Irish,German pottery thrifting haul

Good Morning everyone, here's one of the thrifting hauls that have been on hold for a while.  Feeling almost like my old self again and these pieces are just lovely to share with you.  So lets get started, they are 3 pieces of various porcelain and stone ware.

This first piece is from England and comes from the J &G Meakin Company and the pattern is called Blossom Time Ironstone. Sorry could not find much info on the company its through the royal staffordford company.

This bell is marked wade porcelain made in Ireland  only thing I found out company was around in the 1970's. Can't find where I saw that originally sorry guys. The bell depicts Bunratty Castle which has been completely restored and is associated with William Penn founder of Pennsylvania.

                                                        Here's the mark

This is a lovely porcelain tray made in Germany and it depicts Balance Rock.  It was made for a company called Joslin's in Colorado.  I couldn't find anything on this company but thought this was pretty.

This is the makers mark.

That's it for now more will be coming soon. Yes, new sale this coming weekend plus items that haven't been shared from previous sales.

BOO Happy Halloween

The vintage teacup club review

(contains amazon affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good Morning dear readers, Frankie's taking a rest today and letting me work. Has  you know I love teacups and how delicate they look and feel.  When I saw this book I just had to have it and it turned out to be a great read.   What really stands out about this book is the friendships that develops between the 3 main women characters.  They are brought together because they all want the same vintage teacup set and decide to share it. One wants the teacup for her wedding to make it unique, another is a wedding planner who wants to use it in a wedding as well and one that stood out for me wants to make it into a teacup candle(yes I'm still figuring out mine). They end up sharing more then the teacup they share their ups and downs in there lives and its makes for a heart warming read. So if you like a blend of drama, romance and humor this book is for you. Be sure and check it out on amazon.

If you like teacups check out auctions on ebay

New crafting haul

Good Morning furbuddies, I said I would help mom post and here's one of the thrifting hauls.  This haul is all about upcycling and crafts.  Mom loves playing with all that stuff.  She found this jar filled with broken jewelry and beads this is going to be used on the iron picture frame.

This is a great find and only cost $2.  Moms going to use it on the frame as well as the teacup candle projects which hopefully will be soon.

 This unpainted box was a great find with the amber colored rhinestones in the corners.  Mom is going to possibly stain it and she found some rhinestone stickers in the shape of an owl.  That will be really cool and possible line it will some fabric or even decorator duck tape.

There are a lot of Terra cotta pots crafts in the blogosphere. I even saved pin on boards of making an angel.  Moms even looking into making a witch for Halloween.  We will have to see.

There will be more posts later. Mom has the inspectors here today and I'M NOT HAPPY. I've threatened to bite them if they touch me.  Zen Hugs and Purrrs my buddies.

Man cat monday-phone thief

Furbudies I'm doing this in secret mom is running around like a chicken with out a head.  So I stole her phone to keep her from making any more appointments.  I want her to get back to regular blog post even it means I have to write them for her.  So there will be a thrifting haul soon if I don't get caught.  It's a shame I can't cook the pull apart bread she's got written down I'd do that too.  Here's some arty photos including me has a witch for Halloween.  Sending Zen Hugs and Purrs your way. Oh I heard mom say to describe how she sees things when having a migraine check out the alien on Battleship. After he takes off his helmet that's what she sees when having one of her headaches.

                                                    I can master this tech thingy.
