Thrifty Monday with Rhoda

This was another great weekend for finding bargains! I love-love-love my antique pitcher. I think I'm going to use it for flowers. This was only 20$ at an estate sale! I placed it next to the coffee pot so you can get an idea how big it is.





Look at the detail!!



This is perfect for my bath...6$ at same estate sale.





This is a close up of a huge platter!! Probably 12x18 inches... The mark in back reads _urlington...maybe Burlington?? I can't make out the first initial. There is also a # under the name. Does anyone know anything about this design? I would love to know more about it. It was only 15$ Another bargain!!




And how cute are these? All three for only 1$. I'm giving my Mom the shamrock one, she collects pigs, my sister the blue, she is an avid gardener and keeping the pink for myself.


I also went to a yardsale and found quite a few things and even a side of the road pickup! It was a great weekend.

You got an ironstone pitcher for 20cents? You have got to be kidding. Good work. Happy Thrifty Thursday.

I also love your pitcher. I like blue and white dishes. My daughter found about 6 of those blue and white dinner plates last week for a dollar each, to go with some my mom had. Are the little plates butter dishes? They are so cute.

grannyann said...

Oops I guess they are tea bag holders. I hadn't read all the other posts before I posted. That'll teach me.

Those are some beautiful finds! I used to decorate with blue and white dishes, and now they are all just sitting in a cupboard not being used. Maybe I'll have a swap or an auction. I think they need some love!

In the past, blue was never a color I got very excited about but now...it's quickly becoming my new "favorite" color! Great finds, especially the pitcher! :)

They sure are! Beautiful details can really change everything. And the handles on the second vase really is something.

The tree platters/tea bag holders(?) are sweet find. WHy? because they match you, your sister, and your mom's fave/personality :-)
