Thrift stores are good...

My very favorite plates! These are Mikasa stone wear and they are so bright and cute...love these.
those flowers on the bottom are actually really cute..I'm thinking in Estee's big girl room.
these are the 3 sets i got today, love the one on the left. The ones on the right, I thought were just cute...love the strawberries. And the bottom ones are like a milk glass with holly, real cute.
have you ever??? I haven't. They're ornaments.
I had to have these salt and pepper shakers.
These canisters aren't in great condition, but I loved them anyway.

It may not look like much to most people but I had such a delightful day thrift shopping. I'm so happy with my purchases...and this isn't even all of it. I forgot to take a photo of another set of salt and pepper shakers, a really cute bowl set I got and 2 rolls of a darling vintage wallpaper, very cute.

Those pig S&P shakers are so funny. What thrift store? Great finds.

I bet some Grandma is looking at your blog wishing she hadn't given her plates away.

If I find any of those tiles on line I'll forward you the link.
And yes, I think we are IM-ing.

These are some fancy finds! How many little old ladies did you actually beat-down at the thrift store when all was said and done?

Love those plates! Before we were married I had all kinds of mismatched vintage plates. I thought if I can't have a nice matched set, what I have might as well be unique. Wish I had them now...

I love how everyone is commenting about how grandma-ish your stuff is. Great finds! Where do you find this stuff?

Caroline said...

Tell me about it!
I've found some great finds at D.I. lately!
Also, I've been meaning to tell you that if you want to start selling all your fun creative things you do, I love the site Etsy! I just started selling my jewelry there too! Check it out, they have some great stuff.

My granny still has those Mikasa stoneware plates! Great finds! I have an old set of my great grandmothers china that has a similar pattern but in raspberries.

P.S. Your house looks great. I love your wallpaper choices.
