Thrift Find and Joy List Monday

Happy Monday
I am celebrating today with my thrift find.
We went to a Homestead Estate Sale on Thursday. I found a lovely something in blue cup.
It is blue.
It has flowers on it.
It is stamped with,  Original Czech Republic.

Joy List Monday
♥ a weekly ritual ♥

a reminder to stop and pay attention to the little beauties and graces that make life magical and to set aside time for gratitude each day

 ♥ sunflowers
 ♥ a campfire with my boys and husband Saturday night
 ♥ my husband made a dessert for me Friday night after coming home from my day at market
 ♥ a cool down after a storm
♥ summer bugs signing at night



  1. I love it! And it even has a little flower on the back of it. I was thinking of taking some things to the thrift store this morning. Maybe I'll look at the mugs! heehee! Now look what you've started! Hugs!

  2. I wonder if this was an heirloom brought over in a suitcase years ago or an everyday import sold at the usual stores? It is beautiful either way!

  3. Happy Monday. A very sweet cup and I love the blue. I love reading your joy list. How was Market Day?

  4. I love your sweet cup, Carla!

  5. You did really well. What a pretty cup. Are those forget-me-nots?

  6. What a lovely cup. And a lovely joy list. Sunflowers are on my list today, too!

  7. You really have hit the wonderful essence of SUMMER! Lightening bugs and sunflowers! I guess without winter, we would not appreciate summer so much. Gorgeous and special mug!

  8. Sounds like THE PERFECT summer weekend! I love your cup too my friend! xo

  9. I love your cup Carla, the blue flowers on it are so dainty.
    Enjoy your week

    All the best Jan

  10. That is a cute cup ♥


  11. I love to sip coffee from a pretty cup like yours. Thanks for sharing your sweet gratitude list, it made me smile. A camp fire sounds so fun. :)

    1. Nice cup indeed. Of course, being a guy I need a big one with a large handle so I don't spill.... according to my wife...:)

  12. I love the blue pattern you found. A great find! When I first married I had 'Blue Willow' china.

  13. Great find! I've been thinking about collecting tea cups because I enjoy them so. I have a few... This one is beautiful!

  14. Carla,
    Such a wonderful treasure to have. Love the sweet flowers.

  15. What a pretty little cup, and summer is just made for blues! I love that you always find the sweetest things to be grateful for, Carla. And I went back to read your Hodgepodge answers, I always love your answers.

  16. Carla, your new blue tea cup is lovely. You know, blue tea cups are the prettiest to me. My wedding china was even in blue. There's just something about blue. The campfire with your boys sounds wonderful. Thank you for the gentle reminder to be grateful always.


  17. Lovely!
    To few campfires for us this summer. We need to start slowing down and enjoying the summer nights before they are all gone!

  18. That is a beautiful cup! How nice that your husband made you dessert. We have some very loud singing summer bugs at night too!


High Fives from Wisconsin!
