I have found some beautiful whites to share with you today!

This little restaurant teapot was found yesterday at one of my favorite thrifts...I wasn't going to stop in but it was half price day and well...so glad I did!  $1 after the discount!
 This sugar bowl and creamer were found at two different thrift shops and I was amazed to find they matched
Marked Federalist Ironstone each piece was 99 cents
I love the simple lines on them
These two were found at a little thrift shop in Murphy, NC last week.  Mr ALC and I took a mini vacation to the Smokey Mountains
 This coffee pot does not have a lid but I think it would be lovely with flowers or even a green Christmas arrangement in it and....get this, both pieces were only $2
They are marked J & G Meakin England
Classic White
This pretty glass jar isn't vintage but I love the design
 For right now it sits on my dresser

Not bad for some pretty classic whites!
I'm joining in these fun parties

The little coffee pot with no lid is Darling and you may find a lid, be sure to measure it and take that thrifting with you! actually you should POST RIGHT HERE where you said it's lid is missing the SIZE you need, "WE CAN ALL HELP"!!!
Hugs to you,

How sweet that you found the creamer and sugar bowl at different places...that is amazing and they are so cute. I wouldn't have passed up the little coffee pot either, I like your idea for filling it with flowers!

I agree that the coffee pot will look fantastic with some flowers and fresh greens-enjoy:@)

Sandy said...

Thanks so much linda for your visit today.. I've been away from my blog for a while and am happy to say "I'm getting back to normal once again".... Have a great Holiday Season!

My very best girl friend works in Murphy and lives in Andrews! A nice quaint and quiet little town.
I love the white ironstone. As a matter of fact that looks pretty close to the Antique White pattern by Mikasa that I really really want. I also purchased a teapot without the lid for the very same reason. Great buys!~Ames

Polly said...

Great finds Linda!!

Susan said...

I love your finds Linda!! The white ironstone is gorgeous!!

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Linda! That's the sugar and creamer from my mom's set when I was growing up. Of course, it's gone now and I've been toying with the idea of starting to collect some pieces. So fun to see it with you. I love your white dishes. I've got to go thriftin' soon!

OMWord! Your fabulous red glass in your header popped up with only white before your background loaded, and it is simply the most fabulous photo! Wow, just wow!

Your whites are WONDERFUL! What luck you have finding good companies and great prices. Even your contemporary glass is great. This is the lovelies blog post I've seen this month. Hah! It's only Dec. 1st. Seriously though, thanks for the eye candy, vanilla candy that is.

You never go wrong with whites. They fit in every tablescape and can be dressed up or down. Besides who can resist a deal? I was also wondering how your etsy shop is going? Hope your day is going well.

Pam said...

Great pieces. You can never have too many white pieces.

LV said...

You found some nice pieces for a great price. White dishes with a touch of color here and there really makes a pretty table.

Susan said...

Hi Linda,
I love your white finds today. Just so pretty... and sugar and creamer in different thrifts with the same pattern... luck was smiling on you today. Those are quite beautiful. I actually like that design very very much.

Hope you are having a very lovely day. It finally snowed here and that just made me so very happy in my heart.

I swear I saw the exact same tea/coffee pot at my GW on Black Friday!!! It was 2.99, I told the man I needed it, he smirked at me and asked what for!!! Well, now I just have to go back and see if it's still there!
