OH THE THINGS I FIND!

I want to share with you some of my vintage finds..

 I found four of these Harmony House Christmas plates last spring
They have an area for a cup, so I guess they are snack plates
I think the design is so fun
Do you remember SANKA decaffeinated coffee?
 This is a restaurant ware pot made as a promotional item by Hall China company...it is a wonderful size!
 This green and white creamer was found last week 
on one of my thrifting adventures!  I can't seem to leave a cute creamer on the thrift shop shelves!

Sadly, I am running out of room (you are so not surprised are you?) so all these are going in my Etsy shop AntiqGirl!

With Apron Thrift Girl
and
With Linda At Coastal Charm!

Happy Junkin!

They were all perfect finds.Loved each and every one of them.I find creamers hard to pass by also.What is it about creamers that make so many of us swoon? I think they are just cute.

Romeo said...

Hi there Charlie and Linda! Great finds but my favorite is....the creamer. Yeah, I know not to hard to figure out but can you blame me? It does come with creme right??? And how can you have too many creamers? I mean what if Charlie wants to have a REALLY BIG party??!? You would regret not having all those creamers. Right Charlie!?

Purrs!

Those Christmas snack plates are sweet! They would be fun to use when friends or family come over, too!

Diann said...

Those are fun finds Linda! That Sanka pot is just too cute! I have never seen it any where.

Deb said...

Hi Linda: Those are really pretty Christmas plates. I think I may start to collect more Christmas dishes now that our family is growing and they look so great on a table. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

~~Carol~~ said...

Those plates are without a doubt the cutest EVER!! You and I would have fun thrifting together Linda, but I think I would have wrestled you for those plates!

Susan said...

Oh my gosh, Linda, Sanka was my father's favorite coffee. He always had a cup or two every morning before work and especially on a Sunday morning while reading the paper at the kitchen table. Wow, that brought back memories.

I love your holiday snack plates. What a sweet and simple design. They really are cute. You know, I have some china ones like that with roses on them... I'll have to share it for an upcoming Junkin' Finds Friday because I got those with matching tea cups to go on the little cup holder part for just a few bucks at a garage sale this past summer.

You know what I like, too? The casserole cookbook you have the Sanka pot resting on in that photo. That's such a cute display.

I hope you're having yourself a very lovely week this week.

:-)

The little Christmas candle snack plates are wonderful! You'll have to keep your eyes open and see if you can find the cups that probably match. What a fantastic find!!
