Last Thursday I had a dentist appointment. I decided to leave a little early and go by our local thrift shop.
Boy am I glad that I did!
In the collectors case I spied something that I have been loving on a few blogs for quite some time. A set of red transferware dishes.
I already had just a couple of pieces, but seeing this set for $20 was almost too good to be true.
It was a pretty good sized set of just plates. I thought it was kind of funny that there were no teacups. The people who donated these must have wanted them.
I quickly washed them up and googled to find out a little about my new treasure. I found that each dinner plate runs about $10. Which is what I thought. whoo-hoo did I score!
There were only three large plates, but plenty of smaller ones.
I put them on my living room shelf and plan on adding a few Christmas goodies nestled in amongst them soon. There were actually 7 more small plates. A few of them were chipped or badly stained.
I left a couple of my white teapots. Not vintage, but sweet finds from Ross for $6.99
Look at my darling apron I won from Roxy at Living From Glory to Glory.
I planned on modeling it for you, but weird things are going on with this body lately. lol!
Yesterday I woke up with a sore eye and today it is all swollen. A sty, darn it! I guess I shouldn’t have been peeing in the road. Hee-hee! That’s what my family always said caused stys.
My living room couch will have to do the modeling for me. Perfect colors I might add.
Isn’t the fabric so cute? Handmade with love from Roxy!
Thank you, thank you!
