Bazaar Times

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to check out the Christmas Bazaar at my parents' church.

I was pleasantly surprised to find numerous gift baskets containing teapots, teacups, infusers and teas...

...and vintage English bone china teacups! 
Be still my heart!

I didn't need any more teawares, but I figured that the $$$ would go to a worthy cause... I brought home this fun basket!
Contents included: a purse, scarf, Frieda Kahlo socks, water bottle, memo pad and chocolates.

The reason I got the basket: My eagle-eye spotted this super cute teapot on this fun purse.

I also couldn't resist bringing home this pretty teacup with a lavender band which is part of the Royal Albert's Gaiety Series - Tango.

Have you shopped for a charity recently?

I'm joining the following parties this week:


  1. Yea for you in giving to a good cause, Margie, and you got some wonderful goodies in return! Your new teacup is perfect for you and it looks like there are treats inside to enjoy. I hope you have a great week!

  2. Wonderful goodies in your basket, Margie! The new teacup is a pretty one and suits you to a T-ea! Can't ever go wrong with Royal Albert. It's always nice when we can give to a charitable cause.
    I haven't been out and about very much but we did go to S'side last week where we visited a shop. I did come home with a couple of things. Soon the stores will be very busy with Christmas shopping which I will stay away from as I don't like crowds. I will be busy myself with decorating and baking the next little while. Love this new season that's coming upon us quickly! Have a wonderful week, Margie.

  3. The Christmas bazaars and craft sales start around here this coming weekend.

  4. I haven't been to any bazaars or craft sales yet, but hope to go to at least one with my daughter. I love that teacup - it's such a pretty shape with an equally pretty pattern. The basket of goodies is lovely. Helping out charity causes this way is a win-win.

  5. Beautiful cups and saucers....and to be made as little gifts. Nice. Thanks for coming to the blog and stopping to leave a comment.

  6. Oh be still my heart!!
    Sigh...Those tea cups were all so beautiful. I zoomed in just so I could admire their beauty and beautiful they are. The one you chose is gorgeous.
    I love Bazaars, but in this area you never find them, sadly to say.
    Thank you for sharing with us,I really did enjoy looking at those tea cups.

    Have a beautiful day~

  7. What is it about teacups that we just can't resist? I think it is great to support local charities, and a bonus for you to add to your collection :)

  8. Lovely basket of gifts. Cute teacup, glas you didn’t resist buying it. Lots of sales and bazaars going on right now.

  9. I love these kinds of things, you can buy and not feel guilty because it's going for charity, haha! Lovely teacup Margie. I wouldn't have been able to resist either. xo Deborah

  10. Wow! those teacups are pretty hard to resist and you picked a wonderfully lovely basket. Enjoy

  11. Lots of beautiful things for sure and yes, for a good cause. I agree that it makes it better if you know your purchase is helping someone. Those filled teacups would have been my downfall -- so many pretty ones!

  12. Margie, I don't think I could have resisted one or two of those teacups myself!

  13. A nice selection, That tea cup deserves a nice home, glad you got it.

  14. Now that is a lovely cup and saucer. I really admire the things they had for sale! They did a great job at their fund raiser! Thanks for sharing.

  15. WOW- you found some real treasures there!

    I love all those pretty teacups up for grabs. I am impressed you only got one! It'd be hard not to want them ALL!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
