I'm a little late to the party in getting these pictures up, as I had an overly busy and overly social weekend. Now that I am going to be a vendor at a few fleas later in August and September, I have been in treasure hunting overdrive. Tomorrow I will be at my first ever auction, so I will have lots to tell about that... but for now here are some of my finds from the weekend.
|I LOVE these! I might save these for pricing things in my display, or for use as table markers at my wedding!|
|Will probably go in the Etsy shop..|
And for my favorite find this weekend, which I will probably keep for myself...
A Tom and Jerry Set! Complete with 8 mugs and a punch bowl.
I had to look up why it is called a Tom and Jerry set. Several online sources attribute the name to the London author of a book entitled Life in London, or the Day and Night Scenes of Jerry Hawthorn Esq, and his Elegant Friend Corinthian Tom. Supposedly the author created a new type of eggnog that included both brandy and rum as a means of promoting his book. For a recipe and more information, visit here and here.
I love the little deer on this mug, as well as the shape of the Christmas trees. I wasn't able to find more about this pattern online, but I did find quite a few other types on Ebay. Cute!
Linking up at ATG!
