Vintage Blue and Whites

I'm feeling 'blue' being surrounded by so much 'white' (snow).  By this time each winter, I am really ready for spring.  These vintage blue and white treasures are cheerful in the meantime. 
I'm linking with Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday party and Cindy's Show and Tell Friday this week with some new and old photos (the old pics contain flowers to help us dream of spring). 

Favorite tea cups found for a bargain at Brimfield Flea Market (set of 4 for $4!)

More Brimfield treasures...
(blue and white plate)

(blue flowered platter)

Local Flea Market pitcher and tiny tea pot:

 
French books:

Thrift store Wedgewood vase (only $2 because of small crack I discreetly hide):

I saved the best for last.  A beautiful Catholic Sacrament certificate from 1913.  It is inscribed with a young fellow's name upon his First Communion.  I love the reverence in which the Sacraments are depicted, and keep this treasure near and dear to my heart.  
  
Have a great weekend!

Lots of gorgeous blue finds! The first set of the teacups and saucers are the same design that I have been slowly collecting through thrifting for a few years now. They are so pretty!

This is a really lovely post Susan (always)! I love the soft colors of the teacups you found at the flea market, and of course French books. I myself buy them, even if I can't understand them.
