Vintage Thingy Thursday - petite sugarbowl

Suzanne (Colorado Lady) and everyone who plays Vintage Thingy Thursday:


You gals are a BAD influence on me. I am now noticing - and enjoying - vintage china pieces with roses and bouquets.
At a local antique mall there was a vendor who had set up a display of children's play tea sets. Cups, saucers, teapots.... adorable. And, in all sorts of styles, from Blue Willow to flowery English style.


Sitting by itself was a lonely little sugar bowl.

How can anyone resist this sweet pattern? The bottom says "Handmade Handpainted Bone China" and "Royal Stuart - Spencer Stevenson England."

Enjoy!

Children's tea sets are so cute, and that's a cute little sugar bowl.

That is what blogging does to you. You make all the thrift and Goodwill stores like never before. Your find with the little sugar bowl is a nice buy.

Such a sweet find!

Thrifting is a disease...a nice one but a disease nevertheless! You just have to EMBRACE it!

Keri said...

This is absolutely lovely, and exactly to my taste. I'm in the roses and pastels phase of my life, and I just love this bowl.

I'm so glad you dropped in at Lawn Tea!!

I'm sure it's glad to have a home where it's appreciated.

At least we're not dragging you out to a bar and offering you cigarettes! And besides it's people like you and Marie that have gotten me re-visiting my e-bay addiction with the postcards. I love the sugar bowl - precious :)

Susan said...

That is the sweetest little sugar bowl. Too bad it was by itself but nice you took it home.

Debbie said...

The sugar bowl is so pretty. I love mini tea sets, even single pieces like you bought!

Coloradolady said...
