And now, the Treasures.

 We had a busy day and then, because
we were in the City, we rewarded our
hard work with a trip to the Antique
Mall. And found 3 small treasures.

An urn for flowers, a tiny pair of
leather doll shoes and a china plate.

This plate is from England and is part of the
J & G Meakin line. The markings on the back
suggest is was made sometime after 1912. It's
a thicker plate and just right for our house.

Teeny, tiny doll shoes. The clerk was
fascinated by their small size and asked
me what I'd do with them. I told him I
collect miniatures and he was intrigued.

A close up of the flower urn. I might
paint it to match another gardening
item I found the other day at our
charity shop. Will decide another day. 

Have you been thrift or antique shopping?
Have you found any great deals or treasures?

Super finds Chy. I am very familiar with Meakin ware, and have several pieces in the house. Those little shoes are adorable x

I've found a few Meakin items over the years. This one is now my favorite! X
