Flea markets in Maine

When we lived in Maine I loved going to flea markets and we still enjoy visiting them when we go back to Maine. We were there last week and here are a few pictures of one where they had a LOT of Maine type stuff.

 Wish we could get here more often.

Bottles, bottles and more bottles

Since I have started decorating bottles I have been looking for them everywhere.  Here are a few I found when we were in Maine going to flea markets.
This first picture shows a few tables that overwhelmed me.   And they were all only $1.00 a piece.

And here was a wagon full of bottles
Isn't this window pretty, a great way to use all the colorful bottles. 

I did not end up buying any bottles but I sure enjoyed looking.   More flea market pictures tomorrow.

Tea Cup Tuesday.

Last Tuesday I showed one of my favorite teacups as my first entry with  Tea Cup Tuesday.  This Tuesday I decided to show three teacups.

When I was in college I joined a sorority and our flower was the violet.  So for some of the early tea cups that I purchased they just had to have violets on them.  The one on the left is a Royal Albert tea cup.  I think it is the most beautiful.  In the center there is a teacup that I bought back in the late 60s when we went to New Orleans.  There is a label on the bottom that says it is from a shop called Dupree's. Don't know if it still exists. This teacup is a Gladstone Bone china teacup. The one on the right is a Royal Grafton.  There are all bone china, all made in England and all much loved.
     I wonder what I will find to show you next week.
