Shopping for "Treasures"

Yesterday I had an unexpected free morning so I drove to my favorite home furnishings and antique consignment store in Lexington, Room Service. I have found lots of treasures there to use when serving tea and to help furnish my little 1936 "tea house." Yesterday I brought home 10 clear Sandwich Glass salad plates to match the 12 I found in a local antique shop a couple of years ago. I also picked up this hand crocheted doily and the small English bone china creamer and sugar bowl in the photo above. I forgot to take a photo the set of mirrored bookends I purchased before taking them to the house. I was happy with my shopping trip. I made it out of the store for less than $80 and my spirits were lifted.

A little "Retail Therapy" works wonders to cheer up a girl!
