More Dishes!




Okay, I know I said I wasn’t going to buy anymore dishes but I just couldn’t help myself!  We were at the auction and they were selling the box deals and I saw these dishes but I restrained myself.  Then, after no one bided on them, they were just sitting there looking so pretty!  After the outside bidding was over, I approached the lady taking care of the tickets and told her that I wanted them for $3!




They aren’t expensive dishes but they are pretty dishes!  The bee caught my eye first then I noticed the dragonflies and butterflies.




There’s even a lady bug on the stem of the flower.




Even the cup and saucers are nicely detailed.  Then the next day, I went to a yard sale benefitting the animal shelter.




And that’s were I found these!  Seven dessert plates for $2!




I love the pink and brown!  Who could resist chocolate?




I know these are just your basic dishes. But for $4, still in the box, I just couldn’t pass them by!  They are a deep red in color and I have already used them in a couple of tablescapes such as this one and the Harvest table.  I’ve also found that I use basic dishes in tablescapes more than the prettier decorative ones.




They matched my vintage tablecloth perfectly!  I am having visions of tablescapes in my head!


Total amount spend (on dishes!!) $9!  Not bad, huh?


Thanks for stopping by!

  5. It looks like we share the same passion and addiction for pretty plates. They were just too beautiful to pass up. Glad that you bought them and for an amazing price. Enjoy in good health. I am sure you will get lots of use out of them.
