A Thrifted Thanksgiving Table. . .

Hello my friends, I don’t know about you but I am just tickled pink today.

I just love it when I find something at a thrift shop and then when I go to use it realize that I have something that goes so well with it.

That’s the case with this Thanksgiving table.

Tuesday after quilt guild my friend, Amanda and I decided to hit our local thrift shop.  There in the collectors case was a set of these beauties.

Four plates and four saucers for $10.  This is our off year for Thanksgiving.  You know, the year that all of the kids go to their inlaws home.  We might end up with a few, but not sure as of now.

I decided to add them to my Thanksgiving tablescape.  That’s when I remembered that I had these beauties.  Fruit motif cups by Avon, called “Sweet Country Harvest”.  They were a thrift find last year.

I could not believe how well the design and colors went together.
Oh, and the napkins were a thrift find as well.  New in the package.  Love how they bring out the touches of blue!

The plates say Westwood, hand painted; Fine Quality, Japan.
Good gravy, do we have enough gravy boats?  Need lots for the big day. lol!  $8 for all three.  I’ve added another thrift bowl, Nasco “Mountain Woodland” and a pie bird to the top of my French mug rack.

I told a lot about my table décor here with more thrift finds.  So I am just quickly going to show a few photos.

I think that mashed potatoes in this bowl might be just the thing come Thanksgiving!

Oh yum!  I can taste it right now and my thoughts have turned to the smell of turkey baking in the oven.  Nothing quite like it!!

Happy Thrifting and Happy Thanksgiving!

Jann, I love all your thrift store finds (dishes - check; transferware - check; vintage - check; thrifted - double check!). Sure wish our thrift store was stocked like yours (or maybe it is, and there are savvy shoppers like you who get there before me!).

Kelley said...

Aren't these great together?! What superb finds, Jann. Have fun with them.

Your gravy boats are precious, and the pie bird is, too!

Hugs and happy weekend,

You find the best things at your thrift store, Jann. $10 for that beautiful dinnerware is a humongous bargain. I love the way you have your gravy boats displayed. Really neat. xxx ~ Nancy
