So we happened upon a huge sale at a church today. Just walking up and down the aisles not really seeing anything special. There was a box under the table that kind of caught my eye. I knelt down to take a closer look and I saw that it was a box full of FIESTA! But not just any Fiesta… PURPLE (my favorite color) and COBALT BLUE (my other favorite color)!

$7 for the entire box. I literally fell down on my butt. Literally. It made my week. I’m so happy.

They’re dusty and need to be cleaned up, but so pretty.20130907-151654.jpg
Yes that’s a watergun and toys in the background. Don’t judge.

Now… To make the big plates fit.

I may have to list a few of my other plates on ebay. I may get rid of a couple of the light blue, pink, and beige. We’ll see.


Summer or winter?

30 Jul


Do you see summer or winter in these glasses? I saw summer. There were 2 women running the store I was in and one saw summer, one saw winter. My husband said new year’s!

So, to me, that says all seasons! Ok maybe not fall. I love them!

Still on the hunt for Brookdale soda bottles, but I found 2 more Charles Chips tins!!


Oh the bargains

This is why I love garage sales…

These would have easily cost me $200 retail.  The storage ottomans are like new and the chenille blanket has one tiny hole that I will be sewing up.  The ottomans were $15 for both of them, and the blanket was $3.  Can’t beat that with a stick!  This picture doesn’t do the color of the ottomans justice.  It’s a very pretty aqua blue.
