Weekend Finds, Brass, Books and Cup

Estate Sales were back in full force this weekend. There were a ton of them in my area! It is still too cold for most garage sales - however I did see one! These are a few things I came home with.
Above is a great little antique silver cup with pretty floral detailing. I love these cups. I use them to hold spoons.
I also found some brass pieces...
A fish bottle opener and owl fireplace fork (I'm sure it has a proper name, but it looks like a giant fork and I think it is used somehow in a fireplace).

A couple of old 1940's books.
Alice in Wonderland and Anderson Fairy Tales. They both have great graphics and illustrations.

Monday Thrifty Treasures is back! Visit Southern Hospitality to see other great treasures.


  1. Love it all! Did you polish that silver cup? I have an old one, and I am thinking it might look a little more shiny (like yours!) if I polish it. Funny how I never thought of it till I saw yours...all pretty and nice! LOVE the books too!

  2. i love that cup. you find the best silver. that fork is called a toasting fork. i have one with a witch and one with a cat. back in the days before toasters, bread was placed on the fork and held close to the fire until toasted. great finds!

  3. I HATE to confess that when I first ready your title I THOUGHT it said, "Weekend finds BRAs, Books and a Cup"

    My idea was funnier than Brass, don't'cha think?

  4. What a sweet silver cup! I found a plain one this week and have yet to polish it. Who knows? Maybe it'll stay tarnished... Thanks for sharing your finds.
