Before I commented I had to look at your profile to see where you lived! I was thinking we were at the same sales today! Today I saw a coffee pot, but I also saw the exact same tea cups! There were two cups, 2 dinner plates and a cream and sugar bowl. I had picked them up to show my mom, because I thought they are so very sweet! I didn't get them, but glad you did!
Have a wonderful weekend :)

Your coffee pot is so great. I have found several art deco pieces in the last couple of weeks. Funny how things run in severals! :) I didn't find any treasures today while out yard saling except one guy was selling some very pretty annuals and I needed a few more for fill=in's around the garden and his prices were just perfect! Happy Memorial Day.

My mom had some plate and tea cups like the ones with no maker marks, I'm not 100% sure but 98% sure they were super market giveaways in the 60's. Hope that helps.

Hugs,

I love your percolator. I've been on the hunt for one lately. Reminds me of when I was a kid. I was trying to describe the sound to my daughter the other day, but she had a blank look on her face. lol. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Ninny said...

Well! I just have to say that I love your blog....I was out blog-hopping and followed the crumbs from Vintage Christine's and here I am. I have several dinner plates and bowls of the Sculptured Grape. Just love them!! Hard to find, though. I also have a whole hutch full of Metlox Poppy Trail California Ivy. Love the Hazel Atlas cups...coffee just tastes better in glass.
