Tea Cup Tuesday


I haven't been here in awhile which is obvious.  Just too much going on in my life I guess.  I seem to take pictures with the plan to do a blog entry but then get sidetracked.

This past weekend while we were in upstate New York for Mother's Day we attended the CNY Regional Market on Sunday morning.  A must place for us to visit when ever we are in the area.

I did a blog entry yesterday about it.  While taking pictures I found several that would be good for a blog entry on Tea Cup Tuesday so here they are.  I have no names of companies that made them but I thought I would show them anyway.

This tea set shows tea cups and saucers and such that are silver luster.  Very elegant.  They would need to be cleaned up a bit but would make a great looking table setting.

This is a sweet little teapot.  A cup for one or two.

This cup and saucer do not match but do look pretty together.

 And this pink pretty demitasse was nice!
Here are the other things you would need for a tea party. 
Included are a couple of copper luster pieces from Czechoslovakia.
I didn't buy any of these but did enjoy seeing them.  Hope you do too.

A sunday morning at the flea market.


Mother's Day weekend is now over but we had a lovely time.  I got to spend a lot of time with my daughter which is GOOD,  Don't get to see her nearly enough.  Enjoyed seeing my grandson  who must have grown another foot!!!   And other family members as well.

After a full day of yard saling and regular shopping on  Saturday, Sunday morning meant we would go to the Central New York Regional Market, one of our absolute favorites!  Click here to learn a bit more about it.

We like to get there by 8am to get the best buys.  The first stop is always the "junk dealers" who bring in boxes and boxes of stuff, usually gotten at auction or out of a house. You never know what you will find but generally, with patience, it can be very rewarding. You must look through every box or you might miss something wonderful.


Not very pretty to look at but oh the stuff we found.

After leaving that area we head to the regular vendors who have lots of variety of items.  I only took a few pictures but I must say there isn't much that you need that can't be found here.

Here are some of the variety of things we saw.  Not that we bought much of this.
The first picture is purses.
Old Toys and more Old Toys
 
 And how about a brass bed?
Lots of flowers!

And veggies and food........................


My favorite part of the day was getting to meet a great vendor named Sandy.  I imagine she was pleased I came by since I bought several items from her.  Things I just HAD TO HAVE.

The chairs will hold little potted plants up in my kitchen window, the herb embroidered picture will hang on the kitchen wall and the metal lady is going to be a part of a collage I am planning.

And so another fun day at a flea market came to an end.  The weather was excellent. 
The only problem with the day was that the donut guy wasn't there!

Check out my blog tomorrow for "Tea Cup Tuesday" where I will show off a few more things
I saw at the flea market. market.
