From my latest thrifting trip!

Two weeks ago I was in Pheonix for my Birthday. We had gorgeous weather, and I spent that Saturday with my sister, hitting garage sales, going to Goodwill, and then the real fun was the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. We had so much fun that day and we went to lunch
and had my favorite dish.
I am always looking for new little white pitchers. I love these little things. These two came from the antique mall.
These two 'Royal Albert' teacups were given to me by my sister. I think this is some kind of warmer. I love the unpolished silver look though.
I found some really pretty pieces that I couldn't resist. I love to collect double handled teacups.

You found some fabulous treasures! I love the pretty pink rose plate, beautiful! I believe the 2-handled cups are referred to as Bullion cups; I read that somewhere, but can't remember where, lol :)

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Thanks for coming over to my blog. You asked about the soldering and I live in Los Angeles but I do travel to teach in other states. I was just in Las Vegas as a matter of fact. I also teach every weekend somewhere in Los Angeles. If you are interested in putting together a group of students we can certainly have a class where you are as well. thanks

FABULOUS treasures!!! I collect white pitchers, too! I swear, our DNA got crossed at some point.

I love all your china pieces, too. I have a floral china collection hanging on the kitchen wall.

Michele, Hi! Thanks for visiting and for your comments about my paper flowers. Yes, I used the Cuttlebug and the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die! So many options with that machine and that particular die!
