I Love Ebay

tablescape ebay table
Hello wonderful friends! Whenever I see something I really love in a book or magazine, the first place I look is Ebay.

Ebay 022
I was able to find this green picnic basket and rooster egg cup to recreate this tablescape.

You know I LOVED this display in a store window, but the lady wouldn't sell me the "Laundry" linen.

Eureka! This is my latest I was so excited when I found this almost the same piece on Ebay.

Loved this old Bovril advertising print.

Yo You Quilt Mine
Yay! Found it!

polka dot glasses
Vintage juice glasses..............

Yep! Found them!

Agree Shampoo
I was even able to find original Agree shampoo from the 70's
(I didn't pay 40 cents for it though heheheheh)

Home Sweet Home Coffee Mug
By the way, if anybody knows where I can find this mug, please let me know. Ebay let me down on this one.

I love that about Ebay, too. I can usually find what I am looking for. Only most of the time the price is more than I want to pay.

So after all of these years, did the Shampoo smell as great as it use to? I remember that stuff smelling great!

Great idea and great finds. I love those juice glasses and also the cute cup in your tablescape. So vintage and cheerful. It goes perfect with the green picnic basket!

Ebay is a good source... maybe someone will post the home sweet home if you keep looking. I will keep and eye out for it.

All this red made my heart sing, especially the red polka dot bowls. The "Home Sweet Home" cup is a treasure. I have been looking for a good coffee and tea cup.

Hi D!

I always love visiting your colorful blog and have been a follower for a long time...

I just popped by today and while scrolling through a few posts, I found this one. I want to share a link to someone that has that cup AND a cute matching sign!!! She is in the United Kingdom but might ship.
