After attending the wonderful “Tea For Toys” event in Newnan, GA, I stopped at a couple of thrift stores on the way home. I found a pretty cup and saucer by Noritake Ireland in the Thornton pattern.
This is a discontinued pattern that was produced between 1980-87.
The pretty flowers are very pale pink and white with a lattice work background, but I was first attracted by the wonderful shape of this cup.
I found several other items including a couple of Christmas With Victoria books ($2.49), a lovely glass footed bowl ($1.50) and a pretty Lenox Christmas Tree dish (.99).
The Noritake teacup was also a bargain at $1.99. It’s fun to shop at thrift stores and Goodwill, isn’t it?
