My Recent Vintage Finds

I had a great weekend of treasure-hunting. I spent most of Saturday shopping and searching for vintage treasures with a friend and my daughter. I came home with probably a couple dozen finds, but here are a few of my favorites that I cleaned up and wanted to share.

I found this classic white teacup and saucer made of fine China. I love the extra curvy details of the saucer. Secret: it's not really a matching set... but you wouldn't know from looking at it. I love it and am excited to add it to my collection.

Then I found this great antique wooden bobbins. I have wanted some of these for awhile and was excited to find this pair. I just love the way old wood looks - worn and used with patina that shows its age. I think I am going to  put these in my living room.

Another find I have been on the look-out for is a two-tiered silver serving tray and I found one of those this weekend as well. I have a one-tier tray in my shop and plan to add this one soon.

Finally, I fell in love with this beautiful blue glass snifter. It is my favorite color of blue and I have really been into glass lately, so I had to have this piece. My daughter wants it for a fish bowl, but I was thinking it could possibly work as a terrarium. I haven't yet decided if I'll keep this one or put it in my shop, but for now it's out and I'm admiring it. 

Which one is your favorite?
