Treasure Hunting Report

I took a break from excessively photographing the new painting in the bathroom and . . . photographed my recent finds!

Last Saturday was dreary (we still went "treasure-hunting" though!) but this past Saturday was lovely.  A perfect day, weather-wise.  I'm getting pickier and pickier about what items find their way home with us, but this weekend I couldn't resist this little pottery bowl:

25 cents!

And I found this cup & saucer set for my grandma.  She has other Royal Albert Regal cups & saucers.  The neat thing is, she has a set comprised of this same pattern but various colours, all given to her by friends and family.  Sweet, right?  Now she has one from me!

And a find from last week: a pretty, ornate mirror I cannot wait to prime, paint and hang.  But where?

Have you been up to any treasure-hunting?


  1. Everyone is finding cool mirrors except for me! haha.. beautiful finds:) that teacup is gorgeous! Isn't treasure hunting fun?

  2. super duper the tea classy

  3. Glad you're enjoying some nice weather to treasure hunt for those great finds. I especially love the little pottery bowl. You know the awful heat I told you would arrive at the end of July or first part of August? It arrived early last month, and we're sweltering. No treasure hunts for me!

  4. I believe it is sweltering, Dana. We have had super humid, hot days (we're both sporting sun-burns as I type) so I can only imagine the oven you live in!

  5. I'm a huge fan of that bowl and I love that you found a perfect match for your grandma's set. She's going to love you for that. Awesome finds!

  6. I know, I'm excited to add to my grandma's collection. My family has done so much for me and asks so little. It is so nice when I can find a little way to thank one of them.
