Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! I hope you're having a wonderful week. I found some real treasures--the kind I'm not likely to part with! Would you believe, I had just pinned these very dishes as ones to watch for when I found them the following day? Even better, I paid less than .50 for the two plates and cup! You'll be seeing more of these lovelies during the holidays. The pretty Christmas Holly Berry patterned milk glass was made in the sixties by Termocrisa, the brand manufactured in Mexico by Fire-King. Isn't it festive?
Most of the local estate sales I attend post photos online in advance which is often how I decide if I will attend a sale. While this particular sale didn't show any photos that peaked my interest, it was being held in a charming old house in Comfort, which is about a 20 minute drive. It was really pretty weather, so I took my time and headed over. Don't you love the porch and gingerbread trim?
It was darling on the inside too and I would have snapped more photos had I not been pleasantly distracted by these jadeite dinner plates, which had not been in any of the sale photos! They seemed to be the last of a collection, as I saw several other pieces boxed and spoken for--fortunately none I would have chosen over the plates. I knew they wouldn't be there the second day, and they were obviously waiting just for me, so I snagged them. It was a fabulous week for this dishaholic ;)
Another keeper, I love this Santa cup made in Japan and look at the attention to detail in his face.
I have been gathering smalls for an upcoming project and this pair of kitties has been added to the assortment.
Last, this little basket of realistic looking frosted pine caught my eye because it's just the right size to add to a small vignette.
Next week, I'll be participating in a Holiday Recipe Blog Hop hosted by Carol at Blue Sky Kitchen. I'll be sharing on Wednesday, plus there will be 18 other bloggers each sharing their favorite recipes just in time for the holidays, so make plans to join us!
Also, just a reminder Secret Garden Herbs will be the Etsy shop featured by At Home with Jemma tomorrow. I hope you'll drop by and pay her a visit. Remember, the discount code to receive 20% off is JEMMASFEATURE!
Until next time, happy hunting!
