In the post about my visit to the Royal Eagle Tea House last Friday, I promised I'd share what I bought in their gift shop, and at La Belle's antique store.
My built-in living room shelves are full, but I keep finding more blue and white things to put on them, like the small milk pitcher in the Blue Willow pattern. I knew my purchase was going to a good cause at the monastery. [How's that for rationalization?]
And I did manage to find a spot for it on one of the shelves with other Blue Willow pieces.
At LaBelle's I found four vintage hand embroidered linen napkins. Shown below is a sugar bowl, but the other three have a cream pitcher, teapot, and teacup embroidered on them.

The tea bowls remind me of the size used in the 1700's, holding only a few small, precious sips.
And there was, indeed, a spot for it on a shelf.
And lastly, vintage salt and pepper shakers with a mustard jar.
The front and backs are different. Zout is Dutch for salt.
My search for fall dishes in the Harvest Festival pattern continues. Yesterday I went to another Marshalls store and found one salad plate, and a set of four napkins to match the tablecloth I purchased.
On the clearance rack I couldn't resist an oversized teacup that holds 15 oz. for just $6.
That concludes my latest finds. Have you been shopping lately? What did you purchase?
