Hi everyone! Head on over to Sue's Blog, It's a Very Cherry World! And check out what Reds she is showing today along with all the other linkups.

These items came from an Antique Store in St. Louis, Michigan. Bet ya didn't even know there was such a place! LOL
These two vases were labeled "Ruby Flash Vases". They were tagged for $6.00 for the pair but, I got them for $4.00. some of the gold detail has rubbed off but, I still liked them.

I just loved this beautiful red saucer. I would so LOVE to get a matching teacup! it was $2.50

  1. Hi Diann...that's a cute pair of little vases you have there. At first I thought they were something out of a pharmacy! Need new glasses for sure.
    Happy REDnesday!

  2. Nice reds! You will come across just the right teacup for that saucer soon, just you wait and see! Happy REDnesday.


  3. Oh my...what beautiful items. I'd love that red saucer too. Wonder what the cup looked like, if it was solid or patterned. Now you can look for whatever red cup you'd like to go with it!
    Hope you have a great day,

  4. Cute vases! Good luck in finding an Aynsley cup cheap - they are VERY expensive on Ebay!

  5. Diann, I have the same vase but blue, with a painted white flower on it. Thrift store also.
    Love your red ones...
    Happy Rednesday
    Love Claudie

  6. Great to feature things from Michigan! We need all the advertising we can get!!!

  7. You might be able to find a matching cup if you research the markings on the bottom. There are websites devoted to finding those missing pieces.
    Good Luck

  8. Cool red finds! You found some fun ones!
    Hugs, Lisa
