Look what I found.
Isn't it darling?And it's
time for 2ND TIME AROUND,
so I get to show it off. Yes,2ND
TIME AROUND is where
you find goodies at estate sales,
flea markets,garage sales,or
wherever.It is just something
you love that apparently
someone else didn't.
Our meme here is the brainchild
of the lovely,sweet,and
creative Ms Diane.She and a lot of
other treasure hunters can
be found here@
I found these last week
at a garage sale.$10.00
for the lot.I thought it
was a strange combination.
But at that price,who's fussing?
The teapot is sitting on a riser.
It just looked so puny next to the cups.
I gave it some Dolly Parton

It reminds me of so many
of our blogger friends.I saw
a cup like this on Gollum.Mishelle
was showing just yesterday her
Mom bought the teapot.And our
own little Texas lady bug.It
will forever be impossible to
'look at these and not think of
each of them.

I planted rosemary in the pots.

Grow baby grow.Mama wants to eat you.

I love the tray to catch the drippings.

What have you found lately?want to show us?

Go see Ms Diane...............................

Good morning Ann, yep, you found a very cute set of treasures. Ladybugs are so cute on glassware or pottery or clothes, but not when they are swarming your house. lol. Very sweet treasures.

Love Ladybugs! I don't like bugs at all, esp. spiders! But ladybugs are so cute and helpful to your garden. And fun to pick up...and you picked up some cute ladybugs! What treasures.

Crystal said...

Hi Ann,
Wow did you hit the jackpot, that whole set is so beautiful. Ladybugs just make me think of summer.

Thanks your for the tips on "speed" cleaning ;) I am finding out that blogging does take more time than I had thought it would. It tends to be a little addicting.

Thanks for visiting me and leaving such great comments.

Have a great day!

Chari said...


Just read your note, honey! Ohhh my...I may be blonde but not stupid enough to fall for that one, Darlin'!!!'re too cute!!!

I thought you would like this stained glass with the parrots...I think of you when I see it!!! You're such a bird lover!!!

Love ya honey,

Carrie said...

Florida Sue said...

What is it about ladybugs that we find so cute? I love them, but those biting Asiatic stinky ones are not so nice, even in Dolly Parton heels. Great find.

susan said...

Dolly Parton heels!!!! What a cute find! This just says "fun"! You are right about one man's trash being another's treasure!

Kim @ Manning Family Tree said...

I love the Dolly Parton heels comment. Too funny! I love ladybugs. But I only have them in my garden. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment. It means a lot to me.
