Treasure Box Wednesday: Lustrous Lovelies

While there hasn't been a ton of time available for thrifting lately, I did hit upon some little treasures in the past couple of weeks. One of my favorites is this figurine from Franklin Porcelain called Sophia, which I found at the Red, White and Blue in Bellevue.

You can see a close up on this dramatic lady here:
I love the matte finish, and the soft colors that work so well with my lusterware rose-printed china. For those curious, this is the mark on the bottom...
At the Goodwill Outlet on Route 30, I got a couple of pieces of lusterware, too. Like this little souvenir plate showing Niagara Square in Buffalo, NY...
It seems to have been a giveaway piece from a store there, sort of a promo item.

And lastly, I fund this nice luster Japanese teacup in orange and purple...
There was an extra saucer that came with it.

So that pours the last drop of this particular Treasure Box Wednesday. I'll be spending the rest of this week prepping the last few things for my novel's release. If you're interested in knowing more about that, you can check out my website here: http://www.theregoesthegalaxy.com

It should be available next week-- woo-hoo!

Jenn, your new figurine is divine! I love the soft colors and she looks so pretty in front of your rose plates.

Beautiful little lady! Judging from the title of her, I wonder if she is Contra dancing? Her details are lovely!

Oh Sophia is pretty! I love her dramatic pose.

Dreamgoddess- Thank you, I was happy how the colors tied together.

Dawt- I should have done a photo of the back where you can see her other hand and the fan in it. It's a well-done little piece.

Jackie- She does liven up the china cabinet-- and she's safe there from Cat Traffic. :)

That luster-riffic teacup looks mighty familiar. I think I saw its mate yesterday in the garage....

My mother loves figurines! We have the same style of figurines here at our house. We also use those figurines and plates for photography :) Nice blog.
