I had several requests for another photo of the mini soup tureen from this post
The detail is really amazing on this little treasure

It is White Wednesday and again I had some great thrifty finds
A nice hobnail bud vase for 50 cents
 and these 
Napkin rings at an Estate Sale

I was excited to find these two egg coddlers
at the same Estate Sale for $1 each

This white planter is unmarked 
 For $1.25 I liked the shape
These caught my eye and for 50 cents
Four shell napkin rings
This beautiful milk glass fan vase was at a 
yard sale where everything seemed overpriced
Finally a man said make me an offer
so I got this for $1.50
It is in beautiful shape and I love the design
A wonderful addition to my Milk Glass collection
I am joining FADED CHARM  
Please visit and check out the many wonderful Whites!

I look at milk glass all the time since I have quite a few pieces... but that fan vase is probably one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever seen. You got a deal, my dear!! Good for you.

Your thrifty finds are so nice, I love the hobnail vase. I have not had time for much thrifty shopping but I know there are things out there for when I get the chance. Great deals!

Love your white finds. Great sea shell napkin rings. One of these days I am going to an estate sale. I have never done that.

Olga said...

The soup tureen is so lovely. I also like the animal napkin holders; they are so cute.

Jacqueline said...

All really great finds. Love the soup tureen and all of the napkin rings. Try making that sand castle!

Elaine said...

What great white bargain treasures. Cute little napkin rings and the tureen is so very dainty and pretty.


Wow! You get great deals. I went shopping myself today and will share that in a post soon. I went to this great little Antique store with booths. Actually, it is where mine used to be. Sometimes, if you look really hard, you can find some really great deals. I got a tin with roses on the front, I little miniature hat box, a plate and a cute framed postcard. My friend that was with me bought it all for me...cause it is my birthday week. woohoo!

Sherry said...

Nice whites! Love all the vases.

Jane said...

Beautiful whites! The fan vase is a wonderful piece. I went to an estate sale last week and couldn't believe how high all the prices were. I guess I'm used to my garage sale prices!

Hi Linda, Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments. The small soup tureen is a treasure. Love the egg coddlers too. We got some for a wedding gift (33 years ago) and you've made me wonder if I can locate them - perhaps even make eggs in them. You found some great things - isn't thrifting fun?!!
Hugs and blessings, Beth

Linda! You are my friend hein?
These are really unusual pieces that you found!
Love them all! I would like to try to go sometimes to those estate or the auction sales. Always afraid that they will ask too much. But these are gifts from the sky!
I kind a understand your love for those egg coddlers, but I haven't seen one yet!
It's amazing how many different types and shapes of Milk Glass that could be outthere!
Thank you for sharing your goodies!

Your egg coddlers are sweet. I've always loved Royal Worcester and their botanical patterns.


Glenda/MidSouth said...

You have really been finding some great deals these days!
Will have to get out in the heat this afternoon and I dread it.

Sherrie said...

I have learned something new, egg coddlers. As always, I learn something new. Gives me something new to look for..... as if I need a reason. Oh well.

Queenie said...

Hey Linda!

Congrats on your Etsy shop....looks like fun...I'll have to check it out... love your new background on your blog too! Hope you have a great week!
Big Hugs,

I love that white planter and the milk glass, but I never would have known that those things with the butterflies on them were egg coddlers! I don't even know what those do, actually. But they sure are cute!
Happy White Wednesday!

Jenny said...

I love those napkin rings!!!

You have a great eye for beautiful pieces!!!

sissie said...

Hi Linda,
It's so hard to resist whites. I am in love with the fan flower vase, so pretty. But, I love everything you found. Good taste, my dear.


Dawn said...

LOL! I almost sent you the same little white farm animal napkin rings for your prize. You were meant to have them one way or another! I saw your "Expect the Unexpected" post, your going to have to add on another room for all your sweet things! Glad you liked the dishes.

Nancy said...

Pretty blog! I just love your little animal napkin rings. I saw some very similar, maybe the same, not long ago online and almost bought them. They are so cute! Darling little tureen to!
