Thrifting and antiquing

Oh the joy of treasure hunting. Happiness is finding an amazing piece that fits my palette and my budget.
These beautiful salad plates were a pleasant find at an antique store in Minnesota two weeks ago.

My husband and I are huge anglophiles so it was wonderful to come across this mug from King Edwards coronation. Edward was the only English king to abdicate his throne and he did it for true love. Wikipedia King Edward VIII for extra fun and enlightenment. The mug was also from Minnesota.

The sugar bowl and creamer are my favorites. The colors are so perfect. The covered barn is pink! Pink! They are also my favorites because they were only five dollars at the D.I. ( Desert Industries) in the collectibles area.

The table center piece is only missing flowers.

I hope everyone had a super duper good Monday!
