Some Pretty Red and Whites

Hi everyone!

Wednesday are Red and White party days thanks to these two lovely bloggers....

Sue for Rednesday

Kathleen for White Wednesday

So, let's just get to it!

This first new to me white find is my favorite find of the week! I had seen it at the thrift store I talked about yesterday and had really wanted it then. However, $6.99 was out of my price range. It was a good price, don't get me wrong but, just not a "Diann thrifty price"! But, on Saturday's 50% off day, it became a Diann thrifty price at $3.49!!

Sorry about not cleaning it first. I was just so excited about it I started taking pictures! LOL Isn't she beautiful? A new soup tureen (yeah, I know I need another white soup tureen like a hole in the head). All the pretty swirly designs are just gorgeous and it even had the ladle with it! This is not any sought after manufacturer or ironstone. It is just a lovely tureen.

Now, this beauty has a secret!

Don't ya just love it! I have never seen or had an electric soup tureen. This was such a fun surprise to me. I will be using this tureen a lot!

I had also spotted this beautiful fruit basket cookie jar. I loved all the vibrant colors of the fruit.
