Another Trip to the Antique Mall

So today I went back to the craft and antique mall. I wanted to look at this rocking chair again. But I decided that it wasn't what I was really looking for. So I left but it's still on my mind. I guess because it's old. I love old vintage things. But while I was there I picked me out another tea cup and saucer. When I got home I noticed a crack in the saucer. But this place has a no return policy. So I just have to live with the crack in the saucer. It just reminds me to look more closely next time. This one was only ten dollars also but who wants to buy something that is cracked. Here's a pic of the tea cup and saucer.


Then last night I finished up with dinner early so I decided to do a little shopping. I couldn't find any tea cups to add to my collection but I did find a teapot for everyday use. I don't want to use the one my Mother-In-Law (Mom) gave me all of the time because I just don't want to take the chance of it getting broke. But here is the one that I bought tonight for...$7.99 at Home Goods.
Isn't it cute with the crown on it?


Then I seen this plate to add to my dessert plate collection. My plate collection is very small. This is my third plate. It was only $3.99.
Isn't that dessert plate so pretty? I don't know if you can tell in the pic but the border kind of has a marble look to it. And the trimming is done in a gold color. I noticed that the items that I have been picking out has a floral motif to them. I guess that's what I'm leaning towards.
I know that it must look like I'm a material type of person with these last posts but I'm not. It will probably take me years to purchase an item as huge as my china cabinet. That's why I posted it. I guess because I'm proud of it.
Believe me, this blog isn't in the least about bragging. Like I said before...I'm a lucky girl. =)
Tomorrow I will show you my china cabinet with my tea cup collection in it. I also want to show you the before and after pictures since I cleaned and polished it up. Have a great evening.
Of course....I'm signing off....from Peek-A-Boo Street!

  1. Everything is lovely but I must say that the beautiful dessert plate is my favorite. I love the floral motif and the gold trim.

  2. I just love, love, love all of your stuff that you have been getting lately! Yay! another plate for your collection, how exciting! I think it is beautiful, I love the green! I don't know why, but I really like green lately for some reason. Oh and of course the tea cup and saucer are cute as well!

  3. Aww I would be proud and show my new stuff off too (I always do lol) and I don't think it's at all that you're materialistic and bragging. I really think you're just so tickled you got the new stuff that you can't wait to show us. I for one am very happy you're showing us! It's all so beautiful! And it's obvious how happy it makes you to get something simple like a $10 cup and saucer (not to mention that I could practically feel you crying over the china cabinet because you love it so much). I'm proud for you ♥ And I think you find GREAT deals..if I ever go antique shopping in Michigan I'm calling you first!

  4. I do love it all,but I am a Tea Cup person too. I hate it had a crack. When I sold in a store if it had anything wrong always wrote as is on my tag.

  6. All your finds are just beautiful. I hate that the saucer was cracked. The seller should have had a note on the tag it was cracked, that is what most sellers do here. Have a great day.
