Saturday Treasures 2-23-2013

Wow, now I know for sure that I am on the mend.  I got to go for a very short time to the Tulsa Flea Market this morning!!  WooHoo!!
I went to look for a "cutter" quilt and found the one that my goodies are laying on.  Then I found the one in the background.  I decided real quickly that the first one was in too good of a shape to cut up, so will show you in a few days what I'm going to do with the other one.
I found these four little wooden frames and they are deep - like shadowboxes.  Found a set of crystal salt shaker (salt included at no extra cost), and these four beautiful, vintage, silver knives.  The handles are just gorgeous!
Talk about something with character - this tureen with lid is so discolored that the bottom is a completely different color.  It is a darker shade - I assume that maybe it was used alot more without the lid than with it???  But it is really pretty.
I found this child's set of brown patterned dishes.  There was only one cup, but several shallow bowls and several plates. The plates are only about 4" in diameter.  The right photo shows the pattern.  Also, a small very used white dish - maybe a butter pat dish?
It felt so good to be outside and the sun was shining.  Now, back to work. 
Be sure and check in tomorrow for a new GIVEAWAY!!
Till next time, Judy


  1. See you haven't lost your shopping mojo! Love to see what you find...can't wait to see what you do with the quilt!

    Cheery wave!


  2. Hi Judy -
    Wow, a flea market day sounds like fun. I can't wait for that--but here in Nebraska that won't be until May. Great finds - I love the cutlery handles.

  3. Judy, what wonderful treasures you found. Can't wait to see what you will do with the quilt and the brown and white child's dishes are darling. I love the color and pattern, they would be cute with small potted herbs on them, using the dish as the water collector.

  4. So glad you are finally feeling better Judy and what wonderful finds, those quilts are so beautiful! Love the salt & pepper shakers too and the tureen and silver knives are so lovely. I need to go to the Tulsa flea market obviously :O) Stay well, Deb

  5. Wonderful finds today! I want to see what you do with the quilt. I really like the tureen. I can't remember what blog I saw it on, but it was a way to clean old dishes. Maybe you can Google it for the lid.


  6. I'm so glad you are feeling better. I am always on the look out for a cutter quilt...but when I find a tattered one...I don't have the heart to cut it up! lol Sweet hugs!

  7. Sounds like a fun day shopping. Love the quilts and the child's dishes are really sweet! Hugs, Linda

  8. You found some wonderful things, Judy. I love that old tureen. It's almost like they might have used the bottom part to cook in an oven or something. Those silver knives are gorgeous, too- xo Diana

  9. Nice to hear that you are on the mend...that's some wicked virus.


  10. You find the coolest things! So happy to read you feel better and could get out for a bit.

  11. Beautiful new treasures!! Have a great weekend! xo Heather

  12. Judy you found some wonderful treasures! I can't wait for the yard sales to start full swing here. They do have yard sales all year round here, but I have really been trying to reduce, reuse and recycle more, vs buying more.
    But I will certainly go to some yard sales this summer.

  13. Great buys Judy...especially the tureen.

  14. You always find the best stuff!! Love the tureen and the s&p shakers!

  15. I read a post somewhere about cleaning vintage ironstone with denture tablets. Might be worth a try Judy. Love the brown/white child's dishes. Thanks for your comment about my kitty. I am glad you are better.
