I forgot that today is Wednesday, and that makes it Rednesday! Please join me at It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our hostess! Thank goodness my first item here is red! When there is a holiday, my days get all confused! Friday I went to a sale that I look forward to every year. It's held in a barn, and that barn is packed to the rafters with stuff! And the grounds outside of it are full of furniture and more stuff. And the prices are always amazing!
I got this old quilt for $2.50. I don't know anything about quilts, but I think it was hand-quilted, because the stitches aren't all the same length. Does anyone know anything about it? I'd appreciate any info on it. I just think it's a perfect adddition to my patriotic decor!
I've always wanted one of those milk glass pitchers! Well now I have one, and I'm using it as a vase. I put an old canning jar inside to hold the water, so the pitcher doesn't get all scummy. That tumbler is ginormous, and is great for a big ol' glass of iced tea! Love the old pink pottery donkey too. Luckily my friend Nancy grabbed it for me! This sale is so crazy that you have to go through it a couple of times in order to see everything. And you better grab things and decide later if you really want it!
I certainly didn't need another sewing basket, but I couldn't leave it behind, at $1.
I'm glad I grabbed it, because there were some cute things inside. Anyone need a pocket with the name Lil on it?
Cute little patches, and lots of sequins!
Nancy grabbed this old part of a crate for me too. She knows me so well! I'll hang this in my laundry room down in the dungeon. I mean basement!
Two great books, especially the bird book, from 1923.
With lovely illustrations by Robert Bruce Horsfall.
But the sweetest part is that someone pressed a bunch of clovers throughout the book! All 3-leaved though. Darn the luck!
A few posts ago I said that you could ask me anything, and I would answer your questions. Peaceful Afternoon wanted to know how many dishes I have. I've just pulled one dish from each set, instead of dragging all the sets out of the cupboards. I had no idea I have so many, but I have a feeling that those of you that participate in the Tablescape party have ALOT more than me! And I just realized I forgot three sets that I keep on the attic steps. Christmas, Easter, and the set my Grandparents gave us when we got married. Darn!
Willow Ware Royal China.
My favorite! They're melamine, so I constantly have to remind my family: DO NOT put these in the microwave!!
Our every day dishes, from Corelle. I love that pattern on the right. It's so 70's! I just realized I've forgotten another set of Corelle too! You really know you have too many dishes when you don't even know what you have in your cupboard!
We use these melamine plates for the 4th.
I had to have a set of these because my Grandma had them!
My sister gave us this set when we moved in to our house. It was the perfect gift, because I've been a longtime rooster collector! I especially love using these for Thanksgiving.
Fiesta and Harlequin plates. I would love to find a couple more, because I can only use these for us, and not company.
And finally, we have our most priceless collection! McDonalds and Disney plates! The two yellow ones on the left are from when I was a teenager! Well there you have it. You have seen most of my dishes! So tell me....how many sets of dishes do you have??
Update: I just discovered that I forgot to include my Jadite Fire King plates!! What is wrong with me??!
