A Couple of Thrift Treasures

Today is Blue Monday over at Sally's blog, "Smiling Sally". Head over there and check out all the fun blues people are showing today.

I just have a couple of recent blue treasure finds to show you. I haven't been doing a lot of thrifting lately but, it always seems that one or two blue items manage to make it home with me!

This is a pretty dinner size plate that I found. I really liked the design of the plate and the pretty blue and brown/tan colors together.

This little lonely creamer had been calling my name for weeks at SA. I am telling you, I picked it up and carried it around at least 4 different visits. It was always the wrong stick color day. Well, finally it was the right stickr color day and it was still at the store, so it finally came home with me. I just love the delicate little blue flowers on it.

And the I found this bright blue/yellow/white plaid fabric. It is a heavy cotton 56' wide fabric. There is just under 3 & 1/2 yards of it. I got it for $2.50! A really great price. I just think this pattern and color is bright and cheery. I plan to make a tablecloh for the patio table and matching napkins.


  1. Wow! I can't believe what you paid for that fabric! And I love that little creamer-just sweet!

  3. Great bargains! Love the plate and creamer especially. Perfect patio fabric.

  5. Diann, you are a treasure; a tablecloth AND napkins for such a small amount. Well, I have material pieces and all they do is lounge around and take up space on a closet shelf!

    I like your plate and pitcher too. Happy Blue Monday.

  6. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the tablecloth and napkins.
    I just adore that plate you found...the cutwork along the edge is so elegant.
    I hope you have a great week, Diann. :)
