New Pretty Finds & around home


Just a quick little post this week to show you a few of my recent bargain finds
This pretty Robert Gordon cream and sugar $5
I know it is a pattern that is still in the shops, so I will be looking around for more in the op shops
before buying at full price in the shops.
I love its Shabby Chic pattern.

While I was cleaning out my pantry,I found I had a Robert Gordon box
stashed away on the top shelf.  I must have received it with a mug inside or similar,but I can't remember when.


I also came across this lovely Avon Mothers Day coaster set for $2 and it's never been used
You know me for blue and white. Love it.


A few more change around bits and pieces at home


I've had this lovely little figurine for years,a gift from my brother and his wife, 
The Readers Digest belonged to my dear departed dad,so I treasure them.



Our very favourite magazine Country Style


The children in the photo are of my three in the 70's at the Old Tucker Box at Gundagai NSW
Australia.


The beautiful Vase my dear daughter made, I just tissied it up with some bling.


I hope you are enjoying your week

Good morning Jeanetteann,
Oh, I am loving your Robert Gordon cream and sugar. It is such a delightful and chaming pattern. I saw it on someone else's blog awhile back and have loved it ever since. I never see it here.
The coasters are very sweet too. You have some very pretty things to share today. Thank you and have a beautiful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

I've never seen that pattern or heard of Robert Gordon dinnerware before. "LOVE IT"! I especially like the blue band on top. I will mix and match so nicely with SO MANY other patterns.
Have a wonderful week,

I had never heard of Robert Gordon until this morning. I really love the pattern! The doily vase is very sweet also. I love having my older vintage pictures out also. Now I am off to investigate this Robert gentelman. Have a blessed weekend.

What beautiful treasures you found. The creamer and sugar are so delicate and especially pretty. The vase your daughter made is so clever. Is that a doilie? If so how did she get it to stay?
I have some of my Dad's library so I know how meaningful the books are to you. Such a memorable treasury. Have a great weekend, Ginger

Thanks so much for linking up with my party!
Blessings, Doni

Hi Jeanetteann, your cream and sugar is very sweet. The $5 price makes it even sweeter. Having a special connection with your collectibles make them so very special. I love the vase. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
