Pearls and Lace Thursday #40

Roses and Blues

Maybe I should just say 'Blue Plate Special'!  My wonderful hubby found this beautiful Currier and Ives Plate when we went to Canton at the first of the month.  We live just down the road, so sometimes instead of going to First Monday, we just hit the garage sales and fleas!
Well......I'm excited!  Didn't he do good???

I also found this Trio of blue beauties...

Ceramic Art Co. Ltd.
Crown Pottery
Stoke on Trent
Manufrs of Faience??  France???
Direct From
Factory to Purchaser
Price Lists
How funny is that??

I recently found these blue books by Myrtle Reed, the Master's Violin which I shared with you last week.
Well, I just got the other two, picked one up and started reading it, and wow....I've only just started and am totally excited about the content.  Another book with musicians included in the cast....what could be better?
Victorian era dress, furniture, houses, and LOVE....
I'm in heaven!

And I'd like to invite each of you to participate with me in Pearls and Lace Thursdays.
I share just about anything I think is pretty or lovely to me, and would love for you to do the same.
It doesn't have to have pearls or even lace, but it would be great if it did!
Please attach the url of your post to the link below and then join me getting to know the participants.
I will also be linking up with the following blog parties so be sure and check them out as well.
May you have a blessed week!

Your new plate is fab, and your new trio is beautiful! I am intrigued with what is printed on the bottom. That is so unusual! It makes me wonder how old it is. The cup is so well designed, is there gold trim on it?
How fun to go out with your hubby to look for treasure!

Susan said...

Love all your blue!! Gorgeous!

Love the sweetness of your post and the lovely blend of colors. Also love the scripture tucked in!
Was looking at your sweet puppies and they are darling. My daughter has a miniature dappled dachshund and he is quite the stinker :)

Oh how lovely! And what a sweet way to decorate with the lovely roses, crocheted goodies, and old books, complete with sweet Scriptures. Truly a delightful visit. And such fun pictures to share with my grandchildren when we are having our own fun tea party with one of their little girls tea party sets. Thank you :)

My favorite combination, roses and blue. Sorry I have missed out on pearls and lace Thursday lately, but towards the weekend the florist business usually picks up. Hope to get back in the swing soon!!!
