Today I’m in the gift shop looking at my newly thrifted transferware



I wouldn’t have any use for these in the Tea Room without the cups



However, when I put them into the shop they become pieces of art. They aren’t antiques, ruins or treasures but will definitely look fabulous for what I have in mind.

Medallions for making antiqued looking  jewellery 



This is a new find we came across at an antique store awhile back.


This transferware is hand painted also rather large, but is a soup cup.

Romantic isn’t it? sitting under an orchard listening to your love playing you a sweet song on the violin. 


Do you know what inspired this purchase?  You know I”m about to tell you.  The French Gardener and I were out on one of our beachcombing expeditions.   I’m thinking it was Eastport Maine.  Anyway while beachcombing I looked up and saw garbage in the side of the embankment.  When I got a little closer I found this piece of china shard with the words “cuppe”  on it just laying looking up at me from the beach.



This is how pretty the back side looked



curiosity made us bring it home and look it up on the internet.  I don’t know how I managed all those early  years with just the volume of encyclopedia I had and no internet.  
Anyway, from this China Shard we were able to find what the cup looked like but we had no idea it was so large, or  that it was a soup cup.  Then when I spotted it at the antique shop it seemed only right I complete the treasure hunt with a purchase.

It is sitting in the gift shop like a trophy.

Well I’m calling it a shop day, I have lots of blue and white medallions to cut and sand the edges on. 

Have a wonderful weekend,

I’m in my element when I’m working with paper.  I think to be a frugal scrapbooker these days you have to use more paper and less embellishments of the costly kind.

6 tags of PEI

These 3″ by 4″ tags are all about Anne of Green Gables.  Even though I put them together in a booklet held with a ring I have been told by most other scrapbooker’s who visit the Island Made Gift Shop that they take them apart and use them on their Island page layouts.  There are 6 tags starting with about L.M. Montgomery, Green Gables House, Anne of Green Gables novel, Birthplace, Homestead, and the Green Gables Museum.

Anne tag booklet

Bagged, tagged and ready to go.  When you are out and about remember that the PEI logo with the Anne Made in PEI are licences products for the Island.

Thanks for stopping by,
