I decided to show you some really sweet rose pattern treasures that I have picked up here and there. There really is no rhyme or reason to my purchases, if I see something I like, well, that is all it takes, it comes home with me.


This little shoe was sitting on a shelf at Goodwill. I love the little roses on the shoe itself, so dainty looking. I especially love the lacy top of the shoe and the little flowers that are on the lace. Very delicate looking. This was a $1.00 bargain.

Here is the bottom stamp of this little rose decorated shoe.

This little trinket plate was found at a hole in the wall thrift store. I had never been inside this store before, but one afternoon, decided to have a look around. This measures about 3 inches wide, small and dainty....and had a small price too.... 25 cents.

Here is the mark on the back of the little dish. I looked this mark up on ebay, and there were several pieces with hefty prices on them, but they were much larger pieces than this one. I don't know how much it actually is worth, but I love it....and loved the price.

This set of four little rosy dishes are quiet small...see the penny, wanted you to see in retrospect how small they are. These are very delicate, you can feel how delicate and fragile the china is, these are just precious to me....estate sale find...$2.00.

Here is the up close to show you the details of the little roses...so sweet.

and this is the back of the little dishes.....I was going to try and research these markings, but I have Jury Duty on Wed (today) and my work schedule changed on Tues, so I am frantically trying to get a post scheduled and up because...well with Jury Duty, you just don't ever know.....if I am late visiting each one of you this week, it is because I am doing my civic duty....and not happy about it!

Have a great week everyone.....as always thanks for your love and support.....enjoy your fall weekend.

  1. Ugh, jury duty! What a pain in the you know what! I hope it's just a one day deal for you, and it doesn't turn into something longer.
    I love all of your rosy things today, especially the one with the flower basket, and those little dishes are just darling!
    Happy VTT, and thanks for being our hostess!

  2. These are great finds....I've heard that NIPPON means "made in Japan" but only before they started printing MADE IN JAPAN on things, so this is probably very old.

  3. Those are pretty dishes. I wonder what the little ones are for.

  4. Sweet little dishes. I always fall for pink & flowers.

    Suzanne I've been reading your posts so I know that you are busy but in today's post I nominated you for an award...because I like you.

  6. I love that shoe; you could put pens in it, or a tiny plant.

    I see you're a SS, too. Don't forget all the items I have in my shop under $8.00 that would be cute gifts, and I could ship them for you directly so she receives more than 1 package.

  7. Such lovely pieces. And what bargain prices! I love to find treasures like that :-) You did good!

  8. You are a good citizen! It is a pain but usually interesting. Your plates are so delicate and pretty. A great find. The shoe is very nice too! Thanks for hosting VTT especially while you are so cramped for time. It is such a fun thing.

  9. Well you did good on these finds. I like all of them, but the shoe is my favorite. Life is too short and you are too busy. You need to slow down and smell the roses.

  10. I'm back again after a two week hiatus. Sometimes I just get too busy to meet myself coming and going.

    I LOVE the little things you posted this week. Wonder of those four little delicate rose dishes are salt sellers? And the fine china shoe! I have a little china shoe I've shown before - - - I'm sure I'll get back to it for a Sunday Rerun since it comes with a great little story.

    Happy VTT!!

  11. I love the little shoe!! I would have snatched that up!! What a deal on that and the plates. I am not too much of a vintagy collector but these pieces could make me a convert!!

    Sorry about the jury duty...

  13. Ooo, I love all your pretty things..that little shoe is so sweet and the ting plates are wonderful. Happy VTT...

  14. All is beautiful, but that little shoe would have had to go home with me if I'd seen it first.... :) :)
    I'm not necessarily a shoe kinda girl, but I do like that one. :)

  15. The little plates with the roses are just lovely. So tiny...but so sweet. I wonder if they were for condiments? I think you should put a small piece of chocolate on them and place them on top of your plate when you set the table...wouldn't that be fun? a plate for your piece of chocolate.

    On second thought...I know you are trying to lose weight (as am I) and so maybe you could put a cherry tomato on them? ha. sorry.

    I have to tell you that I love that you are sharing your weight loss journey. Very motivating to me. Thank you!

  16. I always liked Jury Duty - but the first part, when you have to attend 'the pickins', that part is boring. Once you are selected, I find it very interesting!!! Love your goodies pictured today - the shoe is wonderfully sweet!

  17. Those ARE some delightful rose thingies. I've never seen a shoe like that. So glad you are doing your civic duty - even if it is under protest! laurie

  18. Hi Suzanne,

    I love all your little finds. The little butter pat dishes are so cute! I have several different sets of the little dishes like that. I use them for bone dishes, butter pats or teabag and spoon rests. But, I think they are originally used for butter pats at each place setting.

  19. The four little rosy dishes are my absolute favourites! I think they are cake plates for diet ladies.

  20. What pretty rose patterned dishes you have shared with us today. I really like the Bristol Garden plate.

  21. Beautiful pieces, Suzanne, the shoe is my favorite though I would have had to buy it

  22. Love the trinket dish! I'm just like you; there is no rhyme or reason to the things I buy. I just like it and want it!

    Jury duty? Oh dear...I guess it's interesting but time consuming. Go forth with your civic duty!

  23. So delicate yet they lasted this long!
    I love participating in VTT! Thank you for hosting :)

  28. Hello Suzanne, so nice to be back. What is it with shoes that draws us to such a functional piece of clothing. My mother collected shoes both porcelain and the ones for her feet.
    And jury duty--brings fond memories of when I served--actually enjoyed it:)

  29. Jury Duty...oh man I had it once and didnt enjoy myself but it was my civic duty i suppose...

  30. I love the little dishes! Great finds and great prices.

    ps I've never been called for jury duty and I know people who've gotten multiple calls. Don't understand it really.

  31. What a beautiful blog, Suzanne - I'm so pleased to find your treasures!! Thanks for the invitation, and I'll be back to read more, in a bit . .!

  32. Hi Suzanne,

    I love your pretty plates so dainty. the first one is beautiful! I believe they are individual butter pat plates. I picked up a few of them too, here and there. Good luck with jury duty, hope it doesn't last too long.

  33. Happy VTT everyone. I'm beginning to love these pink roses I'm seeing here.....

  34. Love your little butter pats. I have a few of those myself. They work perfect under a pepper mill. Sorry about the jury duty, but think of it this way, if you were being wrongfully accused, wouldn't you want people like you on the jury? See ya' Lane

  35. Thank you so much for the information about my Homer Laughlin bowl--I appreciate it!

  36. Just love to see pretty things! It is so good that you showed all marks as collectors always want to know those things. I have some shoes in French faïence, so that one interested me the most. The Quimper Club website may show some shoes in the future. We have a wide variety of things that are collected in faïence. Thanks..this was great!

  37. You are such an inspiration...and a great asset to the blogging community....I check on you each day, but hardly leave a comment, but I am here reading your words and cheering you on....thanks for being such a REAL person that is very easy for me to relate to...your little rose things are so pretty.

  38. Cute dishes and dainty little shoe. The little dishes could of belonged to a set of china and held a pat or so of butter.

  39. These have the prettiest pink markings! Such lovely vintage thingys as always!

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!

Suzanne
