Friday's Find: A Pair of Pretty Platters...

TGITF Friends! Today's fab finds feature an assortment of vintage goodies including a pair of pretty floral platters.  First, this gorgeous Homer Laughlin--love the colors on this one and...

...the delicate roses featured on the Knowles.  It is honestly hard to say which I like best--darn, guess I'll have to keep both. Wink-wink! 

Vintage Knowles platter

There's a story behind this sunny quilt! I saw it at an estate sale and almost bought it.  However, since it did have some holes and stains, the price was more than I wanted to pay.  Evidently I was meant to have it, because the following Monday, it was in my favorite thrift store for half the price--score! I plan to use it as a cutter for crafting.

Another damaged linen, this one was also a bargain and just too pretty to pass.  I've used a similar one in a recreated project, here

How sweet is this pair of handmade angel ornaments? They're made from clothespins! Available!

  1. I will solve this dilemma for your right now in regard to those plates. I will take the Knowles and you can keep the Homer about that? :-) Problem solved!! They are both absolutely gorgeous!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Hugs!!

  2. So many pretty finds! I love that first plate!

  3. I love the Knowles platter too. Maybe your should auction it off. Not really, you will enjoy both of them. The quilt is beautiful too. Anxious to see what you do with it.
    Have a great week-end.

  4. Love the platters, quilt, linen and angels. How great that the quilt got to come home with you.


  5. What great luck to find the quilt marked down! It's so cheerful and I can't wait to see what you do with it! Love the Rose platter; the other one is pretty too but the Knowles is my favorite of the two. I can just picture them both in your charming home!

  6. say that three times fast....a pair of pretty platters! Love them and I have a bowl very similar to the second one. Those clothespin angels remind me of my Christmas d├ęcor in the '80's! I have sold a couple of damaged quilts for crafts....they are in demand!

  7. You always find such cute things!

  8. Both of those platters are beautiful. I collect pink and white dishes. Great finding the quilt in the thrift store. Can't wait to see your quilt projects.

  9. You sure lucked out this week, Cecilia. The quilt was definitely meant to be yours, I'm so happy you were able to get it at half price. Thanks for sharing your goodies at VIParty.
