The Friday Five and a Give Away

My ma loved tea cups, figurines, and fancy dishes. She has quite a collection and some lovely pieces. Unfortunately, I don't have the room in the dollhouse to assimilate all her treasures. Five things I did this week.

1. Moved 6 boxes of her things to my house, and we still haven't finished.

2. Washed tea cups, dishes, figurines. wrapped and packed them in plastic boxes

3. Researched some of the pieces: milk glass, decorative plates, cranberry glass...

4. Spent the week learning the ins and outs of Etsy. (To those that answered my questions, thank you.)

5. Launched an Etsy shop: Mafundsalo Curio 

To celebrate the launch, visit my Etsy shop: http// Critique the site. Admire the wares. Correct the grammar of the item descriptions.  Come back and leave a comment on the blog. I'll put your name into the cowboy hat for a drawing to win the handsome teacup pictured above. The cup is 3 inches tall. It is decorated with small white, pink, golden flowers, and silver leaves on a white background. The cup is trimmed in gold and is in pristine condition. There are no chips, cracks or crazing so you'll be able to enjoy your tea or coffee in style. Because of the gold trim, the cup is not suitable for the microwave though the arcing will be spectacular.

Winner of the cup will be announced next Friday. Thanks for playing.


  1. It's a toss-up between the red/gold cup and saucer and the brown-eyed susans which look a lot like sunflowers. :)

    Love the name of the shop. :)

  2. What pretty things in your shop, CJ. Loving the brown-eyed susans set like Erica and also the cameo bud vase.

    Great pictures and I love the All are old, none are new line..., fits perfectly.

  3. The name of the shop fits me, Erica

  4. Yes, Linda, Ma has lots of lovely things.

  5. Great shop! And you did it so quickly, I’m impressed! Your photos are great. Wonderful settings and backdrops and they show all the pertinent information a potential buyer would want to see. Nice job!
