Limoges plate with small spray roses, $1.

Crown Staffordshire floral jam pot, $1.

Rustic but charming cup with rose, $1.

Three-footed scalloped glass bowl with silver overlay, $1.

Noritake lemon server -- and every tea lover *needs* a lemon server -- $1.

Porcelain tea trivet with unusual windmill design and flowers, $1.

Giant coffee table book on decorating with flowers, $1.

New needlepoint pillows that match my mom's new den, $1 and $1. Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply hasn't come across the right Memorial Day weekend yard sale! Hope you all have a great day!


  1. Oh my! What fabulous finds! You go girl!!

  2. You have the best luck, Angela! Or maybe Georgia's yard/garage sales are better! Our city sponsors a garage sale every Memorial Day weekend and I found one of my "Petals" [Federal Glass] plates for $2 and a pair of blue depression glass salt and pepper shakers for $5. I looked at a tea pot trivet but didn't purchase it. Maybe I should have! ;-) Happy Memorial Day!

  3. Wow, you are one lucky gal!!!!!!!!!!!! I am waiting for that day!!!!! :-) Happy Hunting!! Antique Rose

  4. I want to go shopping with you!! Lovely finds! Donna

  5. Oh my gosh you made a great haul! Love the plate!

  6. F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S windfall indeed!

  7. Wow, you really got some fantastic buys. I can't believe you found another tea trivet for your collection. I love the Limoges plate and Noritake lemon server.

  8. What great deals! No sales here today, it's pouring rain. My internet has been out for a week, so I've missed reading your blog. Hopefully I can catch up today during nap time.

  9. Wow! I am impressed with all the "goodies" you found. Love the lemon server. Your house is going to be full of beautiful flowers, like a garden. How fun!

  10. Hi Angela - I found your blog via Linda J at Friendship Tea and as I love tea I thought to follow yours. Hope you will follow my blog, I have a few nice tea-related posts and I love your finds - what wonderful bargains! Nice to see that tea still has such popularity in the face of all the coffee shops!
    All the best, Catherine.
