Tea Time Tuesday ~ A Visit to Treasure Mart~

Good Morning to my Tea Loving Bloggers!

I am so excited to share this week with you some
*found* treasures!

But first,
please be sure to check out my left side bar for
all the TEA LINKS happening in blogland.  My

Okay, on to the good stuff.
Last week, 2 of my dear friends and I FINALLY
got our schedules coordinated so we could do
lunch and *TREASURE Mart*.
If you live near Ann Arbor, Michigan then you
probably know about this wonderful consignment
shop.  But this is NOT your ordinary sireeee.
This is a 3 story, turn of the century home, loaded
with just about anything vintage you could
ever dream about.  What treasure you unearth
is totally up to what you collect, are looking for or
whatever suits your fancy.

Moi...well I went looking for teacups and plates....
but they had to have ROSES!!!
So for Tuesdays sharing I found a lovely
English Bone China Tea Cup, called
Princess House.  I fell in LOVE with
the dainty roses all over!
my avacado, cucumber, humus sammy
 tasted so much better yesterday eating
off my pretty plate and sipping lemonde from
my new tea cup!

Look at the GORG plates
I found...and each was $3...could NOT pass them up at
that price.  One is Bavarian the other is German! Snagged
those plates right up, I did.  The smaller one is
handpainted and was $2.  Steals!

But wait!!!
I found a another treasure that I
could add to my
pottery collection.  I loved this shape and color and
snagged it for $4!!!

pretty huh?
Then there's dear friend Susie,
gave me these 2 metal votive
Tea Cups...not sure yet what I will
do with them..but they sure are cute
and as you know they are right
up my alley being tea related!

I had so much fun that day.  We all
agreed we needed to do this more often..hmmmm

Thanks for stopping by and sharing with
me and my finds!  I am hoping to being able
to visit the many Tea Post out thar as I can!

Happy Tea!

I LOVE markets like know, so big and so filled with pretties that even after an entire afternoon, you've barely made a dent in what they have.

And, wow, you found some beauties at incredible prices. I cannot believe the price of your plates!!! You got a steal, girl!!

Those votive holders are totally adorable.

Have a lovely day,

Have a blessed week!

Hi Lorena,
What pretties you found! Love the sweet teacup and that first plate is gorgeous! All of them are lovely and what a fun day you had with your friends! We don't have anything like that here on PEI; boo-hoo! Those metal votive teacups are the cutest things ever and what a wonderful friend to gift you with them! I'm sure you won't have any trouble finding just the right place for them. What fun! Thanks for sharing and have a beautiful day, my sweet friend.
