I'm mad about teacups. I love rescuing them and giving them a new lease of life and also finding out a bit more about their heritage.

Top Shelf Clearance Challenge | Valentine’s Day

This month I’m so excited to be part of the Top Shelf Challenge. With very big thanks to Emily of Le Cultivateur for the invitation. I’ve received a warm welcome from the other participants in this challenge. I was super excited to see what I could do with $15 for Valentine’s Day.

At the bottom of this post, you can check out the other talented bloggers, that have participated in this challenge…so many fun ideas!

This month I was super excited to find some Avon Cape Cod Ruby Red on Facebook Marketplace. The red color, perfect for Valentine’s Day.  With over 50 pieces in the collection, in excellent condition. All of these cherished ruby red pieces, previously belonged to a couple that had been married for over 50 years !

Part of the Avon Cape Cod Ruby Red collection

The Avon Cape Cod set had good karma. I couldn’t wait to pair it with some of my vintage china and flatware. I think this may be the best $15 I’ve ever spent. I had originally planned a pink and gold theme.

Now, with a few changes, incorporating some of my newly found Avon Cape Cod Ruby Red. I think I may be in love !

A great match – vintage ironstone and ruby red

Here I’ve swapped vintage pink ironstone for vintage white ironstone. Dinner plates are by Johnson Brothers. This pattern, one of my favorites, is Heritage White.

Details such of these glass napkin rings add a bit of vintage charm and warmth
These salad plates just shine in the early evening light

I’ve swapped gold cutlery for silver-plate . I’ve chosen “First Love” one of the original 14 patterns by Rogers. I’ve been collecting First Love, since our move to the USA. It’s timeless flatware.

Of course, the table wouldn’t be complete without the addition of candles. And these red candleholders in the same Ruby Red pattern, do not disappoint. I have mixed together two styles. I prefer an odd number of candleholders in an intimate dinner table setting.

I love the textured details on these glass candleholders

And that completes the romantic dinner for two transformation. I can’t wait to hear what you think.

I do hope you’ll go read the other posts in this challenge. 

Inlinkz Link Party will show you the other posts in February’s Top Shelf Challenge – Valentine Edition !

5 Pc Glazed Ceramic Angel Candle Holder Set Graduated Height |VintageFlicker| Available

My thrifting obsession with candles means that I often am forced (not really) To look at all the vintage candle holders. Now, this little set presses all of my buttons.

It’s vintage

It’s simple

It fits a tapered candle

Just look at that tapered candle in it. Doesn’t it look good ? In fact I would say that the candle should be honored to be in such an adorable set. Note the color candle… and my recent rant about GREEN. See.. I’m obsessed, no lie.

Now that I’ve talked it up so much, I’m not sure I want to part with it. Hmmm.. For now, this set of 5 graduated height ceramic angels candle holders are in the Shop. (To be continued…)

Coeur a la crème |Vintage Flicker |Available

Here’s a bit of trivia for you.

What has 8 holes, is ceramic, made in France and heart shaped ?

A vintage cheese mold of course. Or, if you want to be fancy – Coeur a la crème . This one is made in France by Apilco.

Now, had I waited until my husband was back from his work trip, or had cheese making friends (do I ?), I would not have spent 30 minutes googling what this was. As soon as he saw them, he knew what they were. Not because he’s fancy, but because his mate (translation – friend) Kevin makes cheese and showed him one over Christmas. Now what are the odds ?!!!

I digress. This is listed in the shop and it won’t mind if you’re fancy or not. It’s just looking for a good home. But if you buy it and you make cheese, you have to send me some, alright ?

What makes Vintage Flicker candles so special? We make our candles in small batches (usually 4 candles at a time) to ensure the highest quality pours. Each vintage mason jar has been hand picked by us. Our ingredients are simple: high quality container wax, fine fragrance oils and cotton-core wicks, hand poured into a vintage mason jar and finished with a old style gift tag. For best results, we recommend burning for 3-4 hours at a time after and initial 20 minute burn.
