Treasures from Tipton for White Wednesday

I promised to show you my treasures from Tipton
for White Wednesday and I hope you enjoy them.
I didn't purchase a lot, but what I did purchase
I love.

A french cup and saucer for a great price and yes it is
actually made in France . I didn't realize it until I got
home , but it is Pillivuyt brand and I was tickled to see
that on the bottom. I have several other pieces made by
this company and they are outstanding quality.
Heavy porcelain...thank God because ole' clutz Sandi
dropped it on the kitchen floor before I even had it out
of the bag. Thankfully it is still all intact!

This ruffled linen bag was my very first purchase made by Donna herself.


I purchased the very last one she had! She did get a couple more all finished and out for sale
by the time I left for home. She is a whirlwind of a lady!!

The beautiful flower really adds to this gorgeous bag!

These two postcards were a fun find. One was
even mailed to Paris, France and the handwriting
is beautiful.

I just had to show you these beautiful Paris soaps
too. These did not come from the flea, but I thought
they were appropriate. I found them at TJ Maxx
while I was in Indiana.

I did get a couple more small items that I will show
you at a later date. All in all it was a very
splendid day and one worth repeating every year!

By now you know the drill...visit Kathleen over at
Faded Charm for more white goodness!

{If you haven't already checked out my previous two
posts about the french flea market be sure and do so}

Oh my goodness Sandi! You are posting so fast I can't keep up!
April and I went to Bloomington for the day (about 100 miles from here) to do some shopping and eating! :)
What a treat!
I am so glad you got to make it to our little event and that you found several treaures to bring home!
Next time...you can come by and see Tinker!
P.S. I am so glad you got some of our french bread and herb butter...it's one of my favorites too!

I absolutely LOVE that teacup!

I love love love all things Francaise, and I always want to make dainty little purchases such as yours, but I have to remind myself that my current home (a 950 sq. ft. apartment) is much too small for me to be collecting more pretties. :(

Your blog is so beautiful, thanks for sharing your finds with us! :)

Hi Sandi, I just LOVE that French cup. While drinking from it and having a croissant you can imagine being on a vacation in France :-). Donna's purse is beautiful and I also love the sweet Paris soaps as well as the pretty postcards.
Have a lovely Wednesday!

Hi Sandi,
Oooh la la! I loved reading all about your Horton's trip...such excitement, especially meeting Donna for the first time - I can imagine you both so giddy at the meeting. You really scored some wonderful treasures. Donna's linen bag is to die for!
Happy WW! - Susan

Did you buy that bag for my birthday present? Hmmm?! Chuckle! Gosh, Sandi, you bought some beauties. Lucky that cup made it thru the bump ... I couldn't bear to hear you cry. Chuckle!

Miss you ~
