Thrifty Thursday

Gentle Friends, a few fun finds from the weekend......

clockwise..... a souvenir cup and saucer from Yosemite with a picture of Half Dome, a really great book about some of the jewelry owned by famous movie stars from the earliest days of silent film through to the the 1970's, a great little dragon cloisonne vase, some DVD's another souvenir cup - this one from the coast at Santa Cruz and of the "Crown Arch's" that are now part of the Natural Bridges State Park.  An interesting fact about the picture on the cup -  the natural arches that once stood have all but fallen into the Pacific ocean so the view on the cup no longer exists. Last but not least a super commemorative plate from the coronation of George VI on May 12, 1937.

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. I like all of your new discoveries, Edgar, but can I just say I LOVE the rug you take the photos on! The colors are so vibrant, I admire it every week...

  3. Oh I love the coronation plate! Fantastic! (Love Chicken Run!)
