Hi all! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
Hubby and I visited Mount Vernon yesterday and we had such a great time. Washington's home was wonderful but I enjoyed the film and museum even more. Of course, I left home without my camera! You'll just have to take my word for it that it is a great way to spend the day.
I did a little thrifting on Friday and purchased some NEW dishes. They still had the stickers on them from World Market . The salad plates sell for $4.99 each and the dinner plates were originally $6.99 each. I purchased six dinner and six salad plates for $2.50...yep, that is $2.50 for all of them!
I had to play with my new dishes so I put together an INTERNATIONAL TABLESCAPE. The antique olive jar is from Greece, the scalloped dish and new plates are from Portugal and the tablecloth was made in France. My friend Gina at Gina Ceramics made the gorgeous Italian tile. Everything else on the table is from Italy including the salt (sale) jar I brought back from our honeymoon.
New twenty one cent each plates.
I can't let you go without telling you about the blue and white French Country tablecloth. I purchased it at a garage sale recently for $1.00! I almost skipped all the way home.
Thanks for visiting and I would love to hear about your
cheapest most cost effective finds.
