While this was not an overly lucrative week finding inexpensive items, I did find what I thought were some very pretty things.
I never seem to have very good luck at the local Goodwill Store, but I spotted this soup tureen first thing when I went back into the home area. Its not pure white, but it’s not a not a true cream, either. It will blend well with the white dishes you see in the background on the bottom shelf of my china cabinet. I paid $5.95 for it and have the option of using it alone or leaving it on the small tray it is currently sitting on.
I think I’ll end up putting it in on the middle of the bottom shelf of the cabinet, where theplatter is now located.
These are rolled up cabbage leaves that I will be using as placemats. I found them at a small shop when I was in Iowa last weekend. They were $2.00 each.
I just placed some dinnerware on it to show you what it could look like when I DO set a table!
This little wooden box is known as a trug. I have no idea what this was used for. I found it for $8.00 in my favorite shop in Tipp City. It’s in my laundry room right now, with all of my gardening decor. I guess it could be used as an organizational box of some sort. Dump in some desk supplies, maybe?
My favorite find of the week was this crystal liquor carafe and four glasses. I placed them on a silver tray that I already had and set it all on the dining room server.
It’s obviously not the quality of the Waterford crystal you see above it on the middle shelf, but I like it, just the same. I paid a mere $18.00 for all five pieces.
