Teacups and Tablecloths

Mowed the lawn  =  check
Cleaned the furnace room  =  check
Found some bargains  =  double check


I was lucky enough to find 2 vintage barkcloth tablecloths.  One was gold and one was aqua.  Both have some staining that I will work to remove.  They were only $4 each.  Amazing.  I love old tablecloths!

The gold one is perfect in my sunroom and I have something special in mind for the aqua one (stay tuned for  July's giveaway ;).


The wonderful lady from whom I bought my wheelbarrow is clearing her Mother's house.  Her Mom has moved to a retirement home so  I was also able to get some shelves for my basement and these 2 teacups.  I love them!



This cute red and white cup and saucer appealed to my love of red.  The gold accents just sparkle.


I love these over the top gilded Japanese cups.  You don't see them around here very much and this one looks like it has never been used.  All in all, a very profitable day.
