Today is Show and Tell Friday and I am going to show some china pieces that I found in a Thrift shop last week.I am not usually a person who buys dishes,but I thought these would fit in to my kitchen decor since it is vintage and old kitchen gadgets and pictures.Now I need to find a older plate holder for them. I just loved the blue color of this one and the design of it.It has markings on the back that is a lion and says Churchill England.I got it for$.50

These I choose because they looked odd,I like the White gold on them.They have a marking that is an MCP intertwined with the no.735H.It is posted with a 22 karat white gold also.Made in the U.S.A. This was $3.00 for all 4 pieces.

I love the little flower design and gold rim on this little saucer,it is marked HomerLaughlin,no.E 47N 6 made in the U.S.A. This one was $1.00

This one has an oreintal look to it,The mark on it is Harmony House,it is called Sunny says HH Fedral Gold and Japan.This one was $1.00

Last but not least this cute little bowl with what looks like a peony in the center.Mark on back is a bow and arrow The Harkes Pottery Co. No.1 made in the U.S.A. since 1840.22 karat gold trim around the outside edge.This one was also $1.00

I guess I could become a china collector if I had the space or room in my home for it,but I already have so many collection I really do not need to start another collection.

For more Show and Tell post go over to There's no Place Like Home and visit Kelly and all the other Show and Tell Friday posters,you will enjoy yourself Hope to see youall over at Kellys

Grandmother's Gifts

Today is 2nd Time Around with Diane over at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words

this is my first time to do 2nd Time Around with Diane,I am showing two piecse that were given to me by my Mother.These two pieces were my Grandmother's and were passed to me after her death.I think they are called Carnival Glass because of the coloes in them.I am not sure how old they are ,but she had them along time and I have had them for about 8 years now so I guess they are pretty old.I have a couple more pieces from my Grandmother and treasure them .It is nice to have things that have been passed down over the years in the family.

The back of the candy dish,it is hard to see but it has grapes and leaves on it.The dis is gold with reds,pinks ,yellow colors .

Inside of the candy dish.

This is a serving dish with fruits made into the glass.

For more great 2nd Time Around finds go over and visit Diane and you will find alot of great things that people have gotten from thrift finds,passed on from families ,or just somethings they found and added to their other treasures.
