Treasures

When I went thrifting for the common white vases for the reception tables, my eyes spotted this piece of Fenton. I saw the price tag that said $1.39 and was so excited! The top didn't seem to match, but I knew the bottom was the real thing. They really do go together and the piece is a "Fairy Light". Perfect...Sarah loves Fenton AND Faeries! Ebay had several and Replacements had two available for $64!! I think that was for each one (Happy Dance!!).
On to another thrift shop where I found a vase to match one I already had. It wasn't quite the deal, but still rather cheap. A pair will look nice on the main reception table filled with summer flowers.
This collection of white bud vases will be filled with flowers for the guest tables. Maybe three on a table in the center with some other decorations. Clear glass vases are much easier to find, but Sarah prefers the white of milk glass. Must it be genuine Fenton to be milk glass or can that label refer to any white glass??
This Royal Albert mug was a bargain at 75 cents. I can't use it for tea because the handle was glued and I don't want it to leak. The coaster is from England and the napkin is one of six for $5 found several years ago in Denver. I love the basket on the corner!
Swans seem to have taken up a spot in my heart and are growing in number around here.
When I picked these up I was surprised that they are actually candle holders. I think they'll be quite pretty on a tea table.

Lots of work to do, so I must stop and get busy. I may actually get to work outside a bit today!!

Great finds! Were you thrifting in Morgan? I've never found any place to look there, but Mike took us to a place in Brush once - they had so many dishes, but not all were bargains. Have a good week. Sally
