More Fun Stuff

Stopped at the Goodwill on my way home last night and found some fun stuff. The pretty china is Theodore Haviland. I got the pieces here for $5.00. My husband always asks me "when are you ever going to use those" and surprisingly (to him) I always use them for little get-togethers we throw........any occasion is the right occasion to use my thrift shop treasures.
This vintage Christmas trivet is so cute.
A cute pink bunny candle holder, I love pink!
Cute little ironstone pitcher for $1.50 I just had to grab it
I am always drawn to any Johnson Brothers China no matter what the pattern. Its not shabby chic but it just has such an appeal to me. These 2 plates were $2.00 total and the pattern is "Old Britain Castles". I have mis-matched pieces of china in my collection (s) and I just love it.
I have been enjoying the summer but at 105 degrees here today in California, I am getting ready for Fall. I prefer the heat over the cold but it is a bit extreme here lately. Hope you all are enjoying your summer too.





Hi Debbie,
I love Johnson Brothers china too! Today I used my mix and match plates for the shower :)A sweet little doggie creamer and little booklet arrived yesterday for me!! LOL
Thank you sweet Friend!
Try to stay cool..I LOVE FALL...just wish it lasted longer.
Take care.

Okay any Haviland is great but at $5. What a steal. So where are you again in so cal? Riverside County right?
I am wondering cause we weren't quite as hot as you today. I too am ready for fall.
