Field Trip to Chelsea Antiques

I went on a field trip to Chelsea Antiques with my sorority sisters.  Here are some of the things I liked there:


P1040222

Sherbet glasses



P1040221

Holly Hobbie pitcher...I had a Holly Hobbie lunch box when I was in fourth grade!



P1040220

Pillsbury Doughboy cookie jar....I want to giggle just looking at it!



P1040219

Fiestaware!



P1040218

Jadeite sugar canister 



P1040217

Royal Norfolk mod dishes



P1040215

Glass insulators



P1040210

Nice landscape


P1040209

Vintage deviled egg dish with matching salt and pepper shakers



We had lunch at the Town House Tea Room after antiquing.  I did not buy anything, but I do have one regret:  Can you guess what I wish I had bought?  I will let you know what I regret not buying later.  I just want to see how well y'all know me!

Until next time...

Blessings!

  1. Hmmm...I think you regret not buying the fiestaware or the jadeite. I love that jadeite piece. I also really like the insulators. I need to think of a craft to do with them.

  2. Oh, I wish I could find one of the Pillsbury dough boy cookie jars. I have the doll on my mixer right now. Do you mind telling me how much it was to give me an idea of what one would cost! Hugs!

  6. What a fun way to spend the day with friends. All lovely items, but I bet you regret not getting the Holly Hobbie little pitcher. It's so sweet and brings those fourth grade memories flooding back!
    Let me know if you found fabulous deals at White Flowers………

  8. Good Morning Sweetie...
    Oh what a fun trip. I love everything. I would have snatched up that jadeite sugar canister. Love that green.

    Now you love to paint, and I know you love art, that painting was gorgeous, had a wonderful frame. Could be. But then you did love the Holly Hobby pitcher, memories of childhood. Could be...Bit those sherbert glasses sure would make for a gorgeous table setting. Yep I am betting it was the sherbert glasses. So get back down there and go gettem.

    Have a glorious day sweet friend. I love it when you share. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  9. Nope, I have no idea what you would regret. May be the sherbet glasses? I love the sugar container and the deviled eggs serving dish! I love deviled eggs and that is so cute!

  10. I would have to say the sherbert glasses. This is how i deduced it
    First, I always put my favorite things picture first on my blog,
    second the color, third as much as you love to set a good table and fourth I remember having a convo with you about Shabby Chic interiors and how much you loved Sharon Osbournes space, and these would look amazing in her home
    So there ya have it, LOL

  11. These are all such lovely finds and the luncheon sounds wonderful too. Personally I adore the sherbert glasses and landscape's frame ~ the glasses remind me of a set my grandmother had only in cranberry.

  13. OoOoOo....I'm drooling over the Jadeite canister. Gorgeous! I'm glad you had a fun time. :)

  14. I drool over Fiestaware and Jadeite. I don't have much myself, so I drool a lot over other peoples. (They don't invite me much anymore!)

  15. Oh god, we used to have that same Pillsbury cookie jar. The Dough Boy chuckled whenever we took the lid off. Then he took to chuckling randomly when no one was even in the kitchen, maybe when the sun hit it, we never could figure it out. I finally gave him to the Salvation Army!

  16. What fun items! I wish I had room for all the things I would like to buy. I already have my Mom's kitchen items on display.

  17. Glad you had such a good time!

    My Holly Hobbie lunch box is somewhere in my attic and I have that exact Pillsbury Dough Boy cookie jar in my basement. My grandmother gave him to me long ago.

  18. Shopping in the company of the best girl friends is the best. I love the landscape painting and the Holly Hobbie pitcher.

  21. Well, it certainly looks like a fun place! I would be hyperventilating over the Fiesta dishes, but I'm thinking you probably regret not buying either the sherbet glasses or the Holly Hobby pitcher.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Ricki Jill!
