Back. And armed and dangerous.

I haven't blogged in a while ... and I don't have a good excuse for it either! All that matters is, I'm back now. With lots of photos.

I had to go to Michael's last night for some supplies and decided to stop by the Goodwill that's across the street. Am I glad I did? You be the judge. Most of my purchases will be listed on my Etsy shop soon, but I might not be able to part with some.
I loved these coffee mugs. I think the pedestal and handle are what did it for me. Another mug. Loving the rooster. You'll see a little more of this later.
A creamy ironstone gravy boat. Complete with gravy ring around the rim... no kidding.

Another creamer. This had a tag from an antique store on the inside ... wonder how it got to Goodwill?

Loved this, Tiffany blue goodness. Bowl? Ash tray? What is it?

I squealed a little when I found this tarnished champagne bucket. I love me some polished silver, but I think I'm gonna leave this guy as is.

This little plate matches the mug from above. The print and colors are so appealing to my eyes!

And a cute little bowl to round out the bunch.So these little garden tools ... I don't know if they are old or not, but they had some chippy goodness going on. Another multiple ... these great little flowers are kind of screaming for a paint job.

Last but certainly not least. I had a good feeling that this was Nippon and it is. A little sugar bowl that is staying with me. No matter what. The best part? It was f-i-f-t-y -- c-e-n-t-s.

Like what you see? Check back and I'll let you know when they are available for sale!
