This Week's Finds...

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!

  1. I had to do some research to figure out the Tom & Jerry thing, too! I love that your set has a cute little forest scene on it. Most of the ones I have seen just have the words "Tom & Jerry" without any kind other design. Great find!
