Be prepared to hate me just a little…..and let’s have a linky favorite thrift party!

My friends,

You are looking at the BEST deal I think I’ve ever gotten I was searching Craig’s List a few weeks ago, and just typed in vintage ironstone for the heck of it……After I pressed enter I almost passed out…….

See all of this lurverlyness?? See the 12 dinner plates, the 12 salad plates, the 12 dessert cups??


Do you see the 12 saucers that go with 12 gorgeous cups??


Do you see those 12 soup bowls???


The soup tureen, the gravy tureen, the platter? the 3 veggie bowls and the coffee pot?


the 12 DIVINE cups with the gorgeous handles?


The darlin' sugar and creamer??


and the soup tureen one more time just because I CAN’T STAND IT?? Folks, I got ALL THIS LOOT for $100. Yep. $100. That’s about $1 per piece…. I know….it’s unfair…..not right….and ALL MINE! I can’t wait to decorate my Thanksgiving table with all this lurverlyness…. I know I’ve used that word twice…. I just can’t seem to help myself…..


and while I’m bragging about the fabulous things at my house let me show you the 2 MOST fabulous things that live in my house:


Whoo Hooooo Mommy!!! I LOVE it when you’re thrifty!


Here are my little preshies in their ROLL TIDE ROLL outfits mommy made them…..


I know they’re mine people, but aren’t they just the cutest little things you’ve ever seen in your life?? This mama is blessed.


Now that I’ve shown you my favorite thrift ever (and my cute kids) won’t you share your favorite thrift of all time with me?? I would LOVE to come visit you and see all your scores.

Great score! Yes, your little ones are adorable and I love the outfits you made them.

Christine said...

That is the best deal anyone's ever gotten!

Are you kidding me?! When I was little, ahem & we will NOT say how long ago that was, my grandmother had that same set of dishes! I always loved them. Great deal!

That is a great deal! I hardly ever pay full price for anything. Just a few weeks ago I started buying Christmas presents -- I bought a $160 flatware set with all sorts of extra serving pieces for $35, and a dinnerware setting for 12 plus some extra serving pieces for $55 (it was originally $160 too). JCPenney's was having a wicked crazy sale.

I am fairly new to the thrifting game...though I've always loved a good bargain! Your latest score is awesome! I promise, I won't hate you...but I am very impressed!

That is absolutely awesome. I don't know what is better the pants or the dishes, well, actually it's your darling little girls !

Suzanne and Jayme said...

Girl you are thrifty. Definetly not my department.

Every time I see pics of the girls all I can think about is how you are raising twins..They are oh so very precious

Stephanie Lynn said...

Wow incredible deal and I love the simplicity of the dinnerware! and your girls...oh my goodness..adorable! Lucky you - you are blessed! =)

Stephanie Lynn said...

oh forgot to mention the outfits...tdf! You have such amazing talent! One little boy here and I don't think Daddy would let me dress him up in those!

That is an amazing deal!! I don't have anything to link but I love deals! I bought Dmitry a bed and a desk (on two separate occasions) at the Goodwill. After a little overhaul they totally look Pottery Barn and are amazing quality.

Honey, as I say on my blog when I find something so fabulous and pay very little for it....FRUGAL SCORE! What a happy day for you. A service for twelve for $100.00. I feel faint at the joy for you!
