I was in a slump for a while, but lately I'm having great luck thrifting. Whoo Hoo!
I nearly fell over my cart trying to get to these at Goodwill.
Christmastime by Nikko and only $8.98 for service for 4 plus, it was Senior Day, so an additional 25% off. I couldn't believe they were just sitting there. These are in perfect condition. They don't look like they've ever been used.
I just love the footed cup...
...and the octagonal shape of the plate. You'll be seeing these in my Christmas tablescapes for sure.
Here are a few other things I found recently at the local antique and thrift stores.
Can you believe this little majolica pitcher was only $3.99? I don't know what I'll do with it yet, but I love it.
The little oil painting of roses in a yellow pitcher was only $14.99!
The retriever is on the shelf in the office for the time being.
What do you think? Awfully traditional, I know, but then so am I.
The three books to the left of the retriever are actually a box.
Here it is with a toile printed trash basket, I found at GW along with a mirror.
I'm trying to decide if I want to leave it black or paint it Heirloom White like Linda at Nina's Nest used on her beautiful French chair makeover in her guest room.
So much to play with and I should be working in the garden.
Here are some of the things blooming in my garden right now. This is my back yard and please don't look at the weeds. I much prefer blogging to weeding.
Part of the shade garden. The metal chairs used to sit on my grandmother's porch.
One of my favorite hostas, Dawn's Early Light. It will get much larger and stays this bright chartreuse until late summer. It really brightens a shady area.
We've started planting the veggie garden and I'll show you that later when things are a little farther along.
Thank y'all so much for stopping by.
