Uncovering Forgotten Finds


Where did these come from?
I must have loved the blue green color...
...and brought them home from the flea market.


But...
I can't remember for sure.
It is not a complete set...but that doesn't bother me.
I like to mix and match.


The pretty color is the same as one of my Belgium beer bottles.





The backside!

Bringing all to the sale at Paula's farmhouse
 in Centerbrook, CT on Saturday.

What are you planning for the weekend?
Keeping my fingers crossed for clear skies!
:)


P.S. For those who asked... 
       That wild springy thingie in the previous post is a flower frog!

Oh, I wish I was closer to buy those lovely dishes...so it probably is better that I'm not. I have a weakness for dishes and the color is so pretty.

Oooo, so beautiful. These aren't keepers? These would be perfect for Thanksgiving. I'm sorry. I'm not helping am I?

Such pretty china Laura. I have a lot of white French china and,I think it's lovely to mix in some pieces like this when setting the table.....but, I think that I could probably bet that you have a lot more like these and won't miss these at all !!!! haha
Our weekend will be visiting our new grandson and, Mr Home is repairing our son and daughter-in-law's front wall !!!!
Have a good weekend, Laura. XXXX

Well they are gorgeous. I have some green and white English pieces not a complete set either, and I pull them out every once in a while for a nice change. Yours are just gorgeous, do they have a hall mark?

Jem said...

Those are fabulous Laura! I'd love to come along and buy them from you as I'm something of a crockery lover - those greens are so lovely :-)
