Thrift Share

Every thing's coming up roses with my recent thrift treasures. 

A delightful rose with leaves adorn the top of these vintage metal hot plates, while crocheted scallops wrap around, the hot plate to keep this doily in place.

A vanity set with tole painted roses on the powder box which has a wooden knob, and two glass bottles with their original caps for  perfume or maybe lotion.

My friend Lydia gave me this Karoff Original moss rose traveling tea/coffee set. This set was sold in the 50's, and originally was in travel case with a heating element. An original sticker on the bottom of these pieces says hand painted, Pico, Japan.  Square mugs how fun!

How could I pass up this Regal Heritage bone china mug that was made in England priced at 49¢.

I will feel positively regal in the morning sipping my coffee from this gold rim mug with these charming roses on the front of the mug.

When my coffee is all gone the inside of the mug has a dainty rose bud on the inside.
