Friday's Find #197

Thank God it's thrifty Friday--time for this week's fabulous finds! Given my fondness for teacups, this lovely treasure was a blessing and I was surprised someone else hadn't already grabbed it, considering Mother's Day is just a few days away! Since I'm partial to mini bouquets,  I couldn't wait to arrange the dainty cup with fresh garden blooms...

The opalescent Ardco Japanese lusterware is highly collectible.

  4. The mother cup and saucer are so pretty. wow.

  5. What great finds!! Tea cup and saucer stole my heart!! So pretty!!
    Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  6. You found some wonderful treasures but most of all is the cup/saucer,so pretty. Wasn't aware of the collectibility but will be watching for it at thrift stores we go to. Having "Mother" on both saucer and cup is extra bonus, perfect for Mother's Day. Your thrift store must be one of your happy places if you find treasures like that.
    Hope prices at your local thrift stores are more reasonable and affordable, we live in western CO. I miss so much all the incredible shops we went to in KY or even in western MT.
    Have wonderful weekend

  7. Your tea cup and saucer is adorable and should go quickly. I am so glad yard sale season is back as many of our thrift shops' prices are so high. Did hit a Salvation Army Tues. where it was half off for seniors--one of the few perks of getting older! Hit another SA today and scored several tops for granddaughters and glasses/candlesticks for an upcycling project. I have mixed feelings when I arrive home with half a load of laundry and a full shelf for the dishwasher!!
