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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
