Better late than never! This week I have baby Matthew a couple of days so I am a little behind.
I actually found a couple of cool things last week for VTT, but there is much more to be seen by checking out Colorado Lady's website where all the other participants are listed.
I was complaining that I never found the kind of worthwhile purchase other VTT'ers do, when I happened to roam through Heirloom's for Hospice.

They have a lot of really nice stuff & I spotted these darling little crystal mugs for $2 each. I couldn't pass them up at that price so here they are ! Only about 3" tall so I wonder what they are supposed to hold? Maybe they are punch cups left from a set?They look about right size for a baby but way too delicate-& dangerous!

I probably should photograph them on a dark background but the runner they rest on is also vintage, one from my Grandma's linens.
OK here's a better pic. I just took shows them a little clearer-any suggestions as to their history/ intended use?
As I continued to browse through the store I spotted this tiny treasure, I think it was $1.

It looks as if the mark on the bottom says "Taiwan" but it is very sweet & since I have broken my crystal ring holder it will make a suitable replacement.



Sounds like a wonderful store with nice treasures for a great cause. I think the
ring holder is cute with the roses on it!

I love your ring holder, I had one similar back years ago, and have no idea what became of it. You got a sweet deal on the cups, they don't look like punch cups to me, they really are beautiful. Have a great weekend and a great VTT!

I like your little ring holder! I have one similar to it, but I can't find it! It got lost in the move 15 years ago, I guess! Those cups are sweet too. Maybe shot glasses? But they don't normally have handles. Hmmm. All I know is that they are darling! Enjoy them!

Maybe they're demitasse cups.

Those little mugs just glisten---I can feel their weight from here. Just lovely.

Thanks for dropping in!!

I just noticed that my secret word is "GOOSE." Is that the standard for first-timers?

You had me looking on ebay/google for clear glass. I know Federal, Atlas and others put out quite a bit. Some fancy and others plain. I, of course, love it all. The cups could very well be demitasse, punch cups or part of one of those snack sets. I even saw a sale for shot glasses with handles. :0

Thanks for sharing

Ros, if you have received an e-mail from me saying I am in England...........I have been hacked!! Do not send any further e-mails to me until I get this straightened out. I cannot get into my e-mail account at all. Am working on getting it fixed.
Police cannot do a thing about it. If you want to contact me, you can through my daughter Karyn who is on my blog sidebar. Candarbry Garden.
A computer techi scanned the e-mail and said there is no virus attached to it. Good news in that way, I guess.
Sorry if this causes you any problems.

Ros, if you want to contact my daughter,Karyn, CANDARBRY GARDEN, she will give you my cell phone number. You can call me and I will give you my new e-mail account.
Apparently I am not the only FB user this has happened to recently. My daughter posted a link about it on FB today.
Thinking I am done with FB
