Show and Tell Friday....

Simple pleasures ~

On our last trip, we stopped at an antique co-op and I found this cream antique-looking plate holder and a little bird votive that matches.
Kelli, it also matches your tea cup stand in your Show and Tell post!!

I also found this china cup and saucer for my collection.



At the co-op, I also found this little amber hobnail vase. It matches this shoe that's very old. It was my Grandmother's.

I love the glass show and vase. My grandmother collected things similar. But hers were blue.
Thanks for sharing...

I love the tea cup!! The vase and shoe reminded me of grapes that my mother had on her coffee table---the glass looks similar. i enjoyed your show and tell.

Great finds! I just LOVE it when I stumble onto something just wonderful at one of the shops here in town. Sometimes there is nothing but sometimes it seems like there are tons of tempting goodies!
