Surprise, Suprise, Diann Found Some New Dishes!

Yes, I know you are stunned at the thought that I found new dishes! Not just dishes, but thrifty dishes. Oh, an even bigger shock huh?



Here is a sweet set of creamer and sugar in an off white, brown and blue design. This set is actually the largest creamer and sugar I have. I don't have anything that has the colors brown and blue in the same design. So, I just had to have them. LOL




A few months ago, I saw a tablescape at someones blog using these dishes. Living in Michigan, we have a lot of lighthouses around us and so I really liked this set. So, when I found them, I snatched them up!








And then I saw these very pretty china plates. The colors were so soft and lovely, I bought four dinner plates (they only had dinner plates). I have to admit, I don't have a lot of very soft light pastel colored design dishes.







Each one of the above sets, the creamer and sugar, the four lighthouse plates and the four china plates were each $1.00 per set! See, I couldn't pass them up!

Check out the these fun parties I am joining!

  9. A dollar a set...you certainly can't go wrong at that price for those great sets. I really like them all, but think the lighthouse ones are my favorite...I don't have anything close to what would be called beachy/seashore dishes other than a white shell serving bow, 3 napkins with shells and 4 wine stems with etched clipper ships!
