I wasn't gonna stop, but I poked my head into the Thrift Store and what did I find....A BIG box of PINK dinnerware! The tag said $40. The cashier, Cherokee, passed by as I knelt to take a better look in the box and I 1/2 jokingly said, "When's your next 1/2 price sale??" She whispered in my ear, "For you, it's today!" SOLD! So for $20 I got:
9 dinner plates
12 bread plates
11 luncheon plates
8 soup bowls
3 cereal bowls
4 napkin rings
They are in excellent condition! I took them right over to the cottage and tucked them away in the cupboard.
Here's a bit of detail on the saucers.
They go great with some of my vintage plates!
Here are a few other goodies I found yesterday:
A stack of 8 vintage metal hostess trays-2.00
Primitive oil painting-1.00
Pensive Jesus - .50
My sister has a similar picture sofa-sized. Mine is a mere 5x7.
Candelabra - 1.00, will probably be sprayed white at some point, but for now, the black is good.
I hit Hobby Lobby and all their home decor stuff was 90% off! I had to RESTRAIN myself! Among other goodies, I bought the two iron picture easels, $1.20 ea and Crown finial for $3. I will use the finial to hang bracelets and necklaces from. Is your HL having the same sale? Get moving and find out!
I wanted to show you a little trick for using your favorite vintage mismatched plates. I've seen this done with glass plates and candlesticks but I like using ceramicware better.
Here are some others I did. I use them for candies, cookies, fruit, etc.
Whenever I hit Salvation Army, I look for interesting ceramic candlesticks and plates that match the color. I use "Household Welder" glue to attach the top and bottom. It's made specifically for glass and ceramics. Let it dry upside down overnight. Then you have a nice little serving plate for less than a buck.
The last thing I wanted to show you was this sweet card made by my friend who invited us to the Tea House. Isn't it pretty?
I'm going on vacation tomorrow so I will see you in a week or so! God's blessings!
