Saturday Treasures

This is an accumulation of several weeks of hitting garage sales and mostly estate sales.

Lots of good things!!

As you can see, lots of gorgeous dishes.  Plus a wooden unfinished sleigh, some embroidery hoops and a few pieces of silver.

Vintage tablecloth, Cobalt blue S&P shaker.

This set of darling mugs are not old, but look how cute they look with the red transferware.

Beautiful Noritake dishes.



I am in love with this vintage plate rack I found. (Excuse the background - that's where it landed and I didn't have a place to put it.  It's about 3' x 3')

And to fill that plate rack, look at the white ironstone pieces I found....

coffee pot, tea pot, s&p and

more serving pieces and

a whole box full of gorgeous cups.

Needless to say, I was delighted.

Have some exciting news to share with you soon.  Then, you will know where my time has been spent the last month or so.




  1. Hi Judy.
    Have to admit the white ironstone is my favourite this time but anything Masons is great too. Good finds. Now I wonder what you are going to share soon? Always something interesting I know.

  2. Yay, yay, yay!! The dishes are beautiful! I would have given my eye teeth for them! Good for you, Judy!

  3. What fun finds, Judy. You always find the best things. NOW what are you holding out on us about? Hmmmm...I am going to guess that you are opening a shop? Do I get a ding, ding, ding if I am right? You should! You have a great eye for finding things that that is 2/3 of the deal. xo Diana

  4. Hello Judy. Oh, don't you just love yard sales? You got some nice treasures! Susan

  6. Can't wait 'til you 'officially' share your news, my friend. I know everyone will be delighted! So happy for you.

  7. I love the red transferware and the cobalt s&p shakers. You did good girl!

  12. Judy you always find the best items. Love that box of white tea cups. Have a great Friday tomorrow and wonderful week end.

  13. Do you have trouble letting pretty things go? I'd be wanting to keep these things, especially the dishes.

  14. You're doing great! What are you going to do with all of that? Is it part of your secret. :)

    1. Such lovely treasures you found, Judy! Looking forward to hearing what you have been up to soon! Wishing you a happy weekend.

  15. You found a lot of goodies at the garage sales, Judy. I really like those red cups. They look JUST LIKE the red transferware. Are those angels on there - how sweet? You know, I love to go to garage sales and browse through all the items. It's fun and we come home with special gifts for ourselves.

    Have a nice weekend, friend.


  16. Love all your finds. I have the same tablecloth, and made it into a seat cover for my desk chair. How funny-mine was in kind of bad shape though. Can't wait to hear your news!

  17. Oh my goodness, Judy, just look at all of your sweet treasures! You made quite the haul. That plate rack is beautiful and will be stunning no matter what you display on it!

  18. Judy, you have some gorgeous treasures!!! I just love thrift stores, charity shops and garage sales. You found some really beautiful things! Thank you so much for sharing.

  19. Love the plate rack and all the Ironstone! Hmm, wonder where you've been lately...are you perhaps opening a booth to sell your lovely wares? I could so see you doing something like that!

  20. Judy, yay!! I finally was able to comment. I love the mugs and would have picked them up as well. I have red transferware displayed on a shelf running along one wall in our living room. The Noritake is so similar to a set of 4 salad plates that I picked up at a thrift a while ago. I pulled one out to see if they were the same. Not quite, but blended so nicely. Love, love the collection of ironstone! Lucky you!

  21. Great finds...the ironstone is my favorite. I have a huge ironstone collection.

  22. Hi Judy! Oh, honey, you did good! Look at all of the lovely dishes and that tablecloth. I'm totally in love with those pretty blue salt and pepper shakers! Can't wait to see where you put that cute little rack! I'd love to have one of those.
    Thanks for popping in to see me and hope all is well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
