White and Red Treasure Finds

Yes, I should be canning tomatoes right now, but geez, it has been almost a week since I joined any parties! So, I decided to take a few pictures of some of the treasures I got. And they fit perfectly with White Wednesday and Rednesday!

So check out these two wonderful parties when out get the chance!

Please ignore the quick staging of these items and I haven't had a chance to even clean them yet. I just wanted to show them to you and didn't take the time to plan ahead. LOL

I found this large white Ironstone pitcher. It has a fruit motif on it. One side, Pineapple and the other a pear and other fruit. I love the size and it will be a great pitcher to use for ice water or iced tea.

If you remember, a week or so ago I posted about how hard it is to find yellow dishes or serving items. Well, see what happens! As soon as you post it out there for the world to see, I find a couple of yellow serving dishes! Hummmm, maybe my next post should be about not finding any money anywhere!! LOL

This is an Ironstone serving bowl and platter set. I love the daffodil design around the edges.

Here are two salad size plates. I really liked the designs and the dark green lattice. They will mix and match with several dinner plates I have.

This is a pretty Fitz and Floyd rose canape plate. It has a few chips, but I still liked it enough to get it.

I have to say, I thought about Sue over at It's a Very Cherry World when I saw these fruit design plates. One feature cherries on it. I think this is a fun set and will mix and match with many solid color plates.

So, those were my treasures from that thrifting adventure. Now, here is the important part. I went to this secondhand store with ONLY ten dollars in my wallet...no credit cards or checkbook! Just a ten dollar bill. I purchased everything you see on this post and left with .56 cents in my pocket!! I would have went over my ten dollar budget but, I talked the lady into throwing in the Fitz and Floyd rose plate for free and reducing the price on the pitcher a little bit. I was very happy with my deals!


  1. You sure know how to wheel and deal, dontcha? Neat finds!

  5. Diann,

    I just came back from my favorite Half Price Sale at one of the local Thrift Stores. Stop be tomorrow to see what goodies I got!

  7. Hi Diann,
    I love all your finds..ooo,that pitcher and the daffodil set,well,that's just happy dance good. They're wonderful pieces..

  8. I love the yellow dishes. Daffodils are such cherry flowers. great finds.

  9. I bet you've been going through withdrawals, not being able to blog while you were camping! I know I would be! I love when I say I'm having a hard time finding something, and then a few days later it appears for me. Those yellow dishes are so gorgeous, and you're right that yellow is hard to find! And I think we're all drooling over those fruit plates. When you can grow anything, you have a green thumb. You always find such wonderful things, so I think you have a lucky thumb!
    Happy REDnesday!
