Vintage Beauty

What is it about these beautiful vintage wares that capture our hearts and keep us wanting more.  My love for these treasures make me scout many antique shops, flea markets, thrift shops and garage sales looking for those perfect pieces.  I guess it is their timeless beauty, elegance and craftsmanship.   Or perhaps it is that they remind us of a more gentile time.  What ever it is, I am happy that many of these wonderful pieces have found their way to my home.  They are not just collectibles to me.  They are priceless gifts that connect us to the past and give us a glimpse of the sacred rituals of a more gracious and formal time.

Today I am sharing a few beauties from my own growing collection.

  5. Oh my, how pretty! Your china pieces just make my heart go pitter pat! What a sweet pattern; love the shape of the cup. And the butter dish is adorable! I wonder what stories they could tell us. How wonderful to find these pretties and I'm so glad you have shared them with us at Tea Time. Have a beautiful day.
