A couple of Thrift Store Finds

My mom and I did a little thrifting last week and we picked up a few things. I got this set of 2 dinner plates and 2 bowls for $1.99. Since it is just Troy and I (the little princess still has her very OWN dinnerware. LOL), I occasionaly pick up just 2 settings of dishware. I will see some beautiful patterned dishes and add up in my head how much it would cost to buy a complete 4 piece setting and then just buy a 2 piece setting! LOL I really like variety. I think it is fun and sometimes different meals look better on different dishes. And, well, if you haven't noticed by now, I LOVE DISHES!!

I am always keeping my eye out for different cheap "lifts" for candles and other decorative items. So, I found this ceramic candle pillar for only .79 cents. It's green now but, after Christmas it may just change colors! LOL

And I got this little bell jar for .99 cents.

  1. These are some great finds; love the dishes! All of mine are different, and it's really fun to choose a different dish for each meal.

  2. You have been busy!! Love your treasures! Your littl jar is so sweet. I need one of those for my kitchen table. I haven't switched my clothes but it looks like it will be upper 70's the rest of the week so I don't need to. Have a great day. We are off to the State Fair.
    Hugs, Lisa

  3. Diann, loved seeing what you found out thrifting! I agree with you about china... it's fun to have different patterns. I also enjoy mixing it up! What you found is very pretty.

    Happy Thrifty Thursday...
