Vintage Treasures

My one and only chance to Op-shop was yesterday, and it did not disappoint, with a few lovelies added to my shopping basket.

This English saucer, 10c and pillow case, 50c.

Two Pyrex/Fire King cups, 20c each. I'd never seen any like these before, with an iridescent effect in the light, and for this price they had to come home.
The pretty fabric they are on is actually a dress purchased for $4. It needs a few alterations, so I'll be sure to show you the before and afters in the coming weeks. 

 And three sheets to add to the growing collection, about $1 each.


  1. That fabric of that dress is gorgeous! Great finds.

  2. oooo love that fabric in the middle in the last photo. that plate is precious, lovely finds!

  3. Love that plate. It is so delicate looking!

  5. I know what you mean about the cups. i dont like pyrex as a rule, but those are nice. I love your new header pic by the way, great photograph and arrangement x

  6. The little 10c saucer is definitely up my alley! :-) Brilliant price and super delicate!
