I wish I knew more about pottery, both these pieces are marked. After a little research I think the green one may be Brush McCoy. The pink one I could not find anything about on the internet. It's marked USA has a number and the initials TP. It's shaped like an egg and has three feet. I think it may have had a lid originally, maybe? Pink and green together is just to perfect together to pass up. Both had a coating of grime that easily cleaned off with a magic eraser. Magic Erasers rock! I paid $4.99 for the green one and $2.99 for the pink. The candle stick is wood and matched the pink and green theme so in the basket it went, it was $1.50.

Aren't the little cherry cocktail napkins the cutest?!? My heart skipped a beat when I saw these. Red and turquoise by far my favorite color combo and the black stitching is adorable. Is it sick I get more excited about a set of vintage cocktail napkins then I do about diamond jewelry?

I see these crochet pieces of lace all the time at thrift stores. I'm not usually to drawn to them but I thought these rectangle ones were cute and would look good framed over a piece of scrapbook paper. I bought 2 at .99 each. I had the frame and scrapbook paper at home, it took me all of 2 minutes to put together. Easy, cheap and cute. That's me!

Hi Aimee, I found your blog through Nesting Place. I am crazy jealous over that piece of green McCoy you found! It's gorgeous! And the cherry napkins are to die for. Great finds.

Now that I've looked at your blog, I realize that I recognize you from Two Peas as well! And I remember that you live in Colorado too (I'm in Centennial--Denver area). In fact, is that a Unique Thrift Store tag I recognize on the napkins? That may or may not be a place where I spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME. LOL

And PS--red & turquoise is my favorite color combination too.
