I've always been kinda nervous about posting with someone's
"Daily Dose of . . . something"
be it Tablescape Thursday, Foodie Friday, Meta Monday.
I adore looking at them all,
but just am hesitant about participating.
So let's call this my version of "Whenever Table Vignette's"
Today I went into my local Goodwill stores
(yes we have two of located only four cities apart I go to)
and was once again walking out the doors beaming.
Check out what I got -
This seems to be a charger. It has burgundy around the edges
and will make a great serving platter.
And these 6 oversized dinner plates. And how lucky for me that they
were all yellow-tagged which meant today they were 1/2 price!!
I got them for 99 cents each!! Yup - the whole lot for $6.93.
Then at the other store, I walked out with these!
$ .99 each! Can you believe it?
I'm kind of on a tarnished metal kick . . . I think it might
just be a lazy mode of mine.
I've been pulling out so many things and they are all tarnished
and in need of polishing and I'm thinking,
"who me - I don't think so!"
And I've been discovering things at different places
and they need polishing too,so forget it!
I'm definitely into the rustic look!
I got this at a local thrift store last week for $4. I love, love, love it!
As I pulled my new dishes out of the dishwasher, I thought
I might as well see how they look with the dishes I intend on
using them with.
Well . . . one thing led to another . . . you know how that goes,
and pretty soon my kitchen, dining room and pantry
were just a mess. I pulled things out and tried things different ways.
Then I thought I might as well pull out the camera
and share my fun afternoon.
Here we go -
My Mom's dishes. She had two sets of good china - this is one of them.
My sister and I each got 1/2. I've been adding to mine for 10 years now.
I had originally bought these chargers to go with them,
but after what I found today - I like them both!
I could alternate around the table -
what do you think?
Probably not the best placemat to pair it with,
the charger kind of dissappeared, but they were handy.
This charger is so much smaller, fits in the dishwasher
and is so much LIGHTER!!! Those big burgundy ones weigh a TON!
My grandmother's every day dishes up on their farm. I only have two plates and two salad plates. They all got divided between all the granddaughters. I have had Replacements.com looking for more, but to no avail. And there is no name! UGH! I had bought eight of these chargers to go with them years ago. And I use these chargers with my Christmas dishes too.
This is the cute little salt cellar I placed with it.
Kind of hard to see the detail but he is a cute little cherub with lots of detail!
These are my dishes that I use during summer. I just love the yellow, blue and white.
A few weeks ago I found this plate. Love it!
Then last week at a little antique shop, I found this teacup and saucer.
I know, they don't match at all. But . . .
Along time ago my MIL gave me this cute little breakfast plate,
bowl and chick. I just love them.
And when I remembered this white plate . . .
I paired the blue and white all together and really like it!
My family just left town for the weekend,
I think I might make myself breakfast in bed and use this.
Oh! I almost forgot to tell you! I am going to an estate sale tomorrow that a friend of mine is conducting. But it is TWO HOURS away and I have to leave at 7 am (OK so much for my breakfast in bed!). I'm going all by myself, and driving my husband's big ol' truck, because you just never know what I might find!! (hehehe).
I'll take pictures!
Have a great evening!
