Sadler & Green Gables

Like many of you, I'm trying to restrict the acquisition of teawares. But I just couldn't resist this beauty when I spotted it at the local thrift store this past weekend.

Sadler is one of my favourite English teapot makers.
 This gorgeous teapot was in excellent condition and only cost me $6!

I love the bright colours and bird design.

I also rescued this orphaned teacup featuring Green Gables--the home of our favourite spunky dreamer, Anne Shirley. Visiting Green Gables is definitely on my bucket list!

This Anne of Green Gables teacup was part of Regency's Heritage Collection.

The thrift store was having a "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" promotion for housewares so this cute teabag holder was free!

Have you found any treasures this summer?


  1. I'm glad you couldn't resist the pretty, colorful Sadler teapot, Margie, and what a bargain it was! Your orphaned Green Gables teacup will be happy in your home, too. Thanks for sharing your lovely bargains.

  2. The Sadler is a beauty indeed Margie, one brand I haven't acquired yet. I'm staying away from the antique barns as I know I'll be wanting something too. :-)
    We visited PEI and Green Gables a few years ago when we went to the island for a wedding, it's a dreamy vacation out east.
    The teabag holder is a generous size, good bargain hunting!

  3. It's hard to resist bargains at the thrift store, and free is even better.

  4. Dear Margie:
    When I saw the word "Green Gables" I was drawn right here! What a darling cup and saucer. I love your Sadler teapot too. They are always so sturdy. Thanks for sharing and linking.

  5. Margie, I love Sadler teapots and you found a beauty for a great price. Wasn't that a treat! Your GG teacup is cute too. I hope you get to visit Green Gables one day. It truly is a splendid place. I am hoping to visit this summer when my DIL comes home. It has been a few years since I was last there. Thanks for sharing and enjoy this new week.


  6. Hi Margie: I would not have resisted that teapot either. Love Sadler teapots. Thanks so much for joining the party this week. Blessings, Martha

  7. What a pretty teapot! I wouldn't be able to resist that either especially at that price....Christine

  8. I'm glad you didn't resist the teapot. It is so lovely.

  9. Oh, you did find treasures! The teapot is gorgeous and the Anne of Green Gables teacup needed someone who would appreciate it. (It's on my bucket list to visit, too!) I have not been able to visit thrift shops recently, I hope I will find some treasures soon, too.

  10. I know the feeling, it's almost impossible to pass such treasures up. Some how I find a way to fit it in the collection. For me it's not really a collection as much as it is more a lifestyle. Great finds.

  11. I never find treasures like that in my favorite thrift store. I was in an antique mall yesterday, and I spied a teapot I loved. Unfortunately, it was $69...very much out of my budget. Wish I could find pretty things in the thrift store, since it's much less expensive.

    Anyhow, your finds are lovely. Lucky you!

  12. So glad you brought the tea pot home with you...she is quite the little beauty! And that tea cup is just precious. I, too, love the fun and spunky Anne Shirley.

    Happy day to you, my friend. Hugs!

  13. I would have come home with the teapot as well! And how fun to find the Anne cup! Hope you find a saucer. Looks like a fun shop. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  14. Hi Margie, well that was a pretty tea pot you've purchased. I would definitely grab it I saw it at the thrift shop. I do love Sadler teapots too. I actually bought one from Oxfam when I was in UK. Love their pretty design.
    Thank you for dropping by at my blog. You are so kind for leaving a message too.
    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

  15. Oh My, a charming Sadler teapot for a bargain price. Good for you, Margie. I have never seen a Green Gables cup. Perhaps you shall come across a matching saucer one day. Jill

  16. What delightful finds! I love the Green Gables cup! Worth having even if it doesn't have a saucer!
