I also scored some antique children's clothing - free - which may end up right in the trash if it doesn't clean up. It had been stored up in an attic for 80 years and was the ladies mother's items. Too bad, because they aren't in good condition and the man joked he'd give me $1 to take it!

|Tea Coaster Set|
The Tea Coaster Set I think can be salvaged. The two circles are snapped on and the tea pot part opens up as if it is a light weight cozy. All are hand sewn and embroidered.
Of course, as usual I must pick up some type of glassware I really don't need but seem to want. Bell was only $1.25, cups for all were about $1.50. To match the pattern of the bell, I also found a mustard jar. My friend who goes with me each week saw some snack plates that had a tree motif which resembles an Oak (Paso Robles is Pass of the Oaks) so I bought her the plates, 8 total, but only 4 matching cups. We joked with all of the cups I've picked up over the years, we're bound to find 4 more to match her second set! She so good to me, the least I can do is pick up a little something for her now and again. I'm teaching her how to "Negotiate!" She's picking up haggling pretty good, but many times she nudge me and say, what do you think - and I negotiate for her. We have a blast together and that's what really counts!
If anyone has any ideas about how to take the stains out of the old clothing here, please post for me. I don't want to ruin them further if they can be salvaged!
Thanks for taking a peak, and have a blessed Sunday! Tomorrow is a day to finish up some altered art! Yeah!
