Saturday Treasures

Had a good day at the Tulsa Flea Market on Saturday. 

 Scored a big assortment of crocheted potholders - 27 to be exact.  I see more of the crocheted potholder wreaths in my future.  An old tin full of buttons, vintage linens and of course salt shakers.
 Found this gorgeous little plate - it's only about 4" across.  The transferware is beautiful and no damage at all.
 I always buy this casserole holders.  Don't know why but they just appeal to me.  Someday I'll come up with an ingenious idea for them.  I have all shapes and sizes.
Don't ask me why I bought this white goat creamer????? I just thought he was cute.
Isn't this just a darling little tea set for two little girls?  It came with the two saucers, two dessert plates, two cups, sugar and creamer with lid and the tea pot with lid.
Love it!!
And then this child's set of dishes!!  There is service for four and it's all there.  There are plates, teacups, saucers, teapot, salt and pepper shakers, candlesticks, napkin holder, napkin rings and knives, forks and spoons!  They are so bright and colorful.  I don't think they are too old, but when Laynee gets a little older, won't we have fun with these?
And in the linens I bought, I got two of these.  Do you know what they are?
They are Antimacassars.
These were used on the back of a chair of sofa to prevent a man's hair tonic from getting on the furniture.  They sometimes have accompanying pieces to go on the arms of  furniture.
"In many home will be found one of more of the oldtime "tidies"  veritable heirlooms wrought by hands perhaps long since folded in peaceful rest and so all the more precious."
From The Renaissance of the Antimacassar in Needlecraft magazine date July 1921.
Monday and Wednesday of this week, I will be at the hospital undergoing some rather brutal testing.  Please remember me in your prayers.
Till next time, Judy


  1. Darling little tea sets! Nice finds.

  2. I will keep you in my prayers, my friend. I sure love your treasures...especially the child's set of dishes! They are the sweetest!

  3. You found some lovely things. I really love the little tea sets. They are darling. I will keep you in my prayers for next week.
    Do you know that Tuesday is a day of Silence and Support in blogland? If I didn't send you the graphic let me know and I will email it to you with the link. Blessings- xo Diana

  4. That is the cutest child set of dishes I have ever seen. What little one would not want that. xo,Susie

  5. Such cute finds Judy! I love the little tea sets~ I know you will use the vintage linens and make something amazing. I'll keep you in my prayers for your testing! Big Hugs, Linda

  6. I love the pot holders. One of these days I'm going to have you make me one of red and white and maybe blue. Maybe you could take those casserole holders and use them as frames on the wall for smaller objects in the center???

  7. I was thinking picture frames

    You did very well.


  8. Looks like you really made a haul at the flea market! Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers - hope you get good results from the tests.

  9. You are in my prayers...brutal testing...NOOOOOOO! That's just not right. I'm sorry you have to have that done! Don't you just love getting to the age where testing is brutal? Like all the other crap we have to deal with because of getting older isn't enough. That sucks my friend. I'll be thinking about you and praying that you sleep through tests or at least get great drugs. If they don't want to give you great drugs, just tell them you're a screamer. That always works for me.

    XOXO Bev

  10. I will definitely keep you in my prayers. I have been through some brutal testing myself lately.
    I know everything will be alright for you.

  11. I love all your great finds.
    So sorry you have to undergo testing. Praying it will be much less brutal than you expect, and that the results will be very good news. Gentle hugs.

  12. Just look at all the pretties you gave a new home! Your little tea sets are darling...How I love all the pastels. I'm in potholder heaven with all your beautiful vintage crocheted lovelies!
    Your day was such a success, Judy!

  13. The first time I heard the word Antimacassar was from my former pastor. His wife had them on the backs and arms of her chairs, as did my Grandma. I haven't heard it in years!
    My prayers are with you Judy, Gods Speed.

  14. What a haul! I really like the transferware plate. Gorgeous!

    Best of luck with the tests. Will keep you in my prayers!

  15. You always find such great stuff! I am sorry you have to undergo some awful testing today and Wed. I will keep you in my prayers, Judy.

  16. Great finds, Judy! Love the tea sets, especially that colorful group. I remember finding a couple at Goodwill a few years ago and promptly bought them {even though my granddaughter had not arrived yet!}. Great transferware plate, too. I love transferware.
