New Treasures...

This past Saturday I had a few hours to myself...to actually be all by myself! With a family the size of the one I have, that is a mini miracle. I love them all with all my heart, but having a wee bit of time that is all "mine" is a little bit of Heaven to me. So I decided to do a bit of treasure hunting...I thrive when I'm on the hunt. Whether it be perusing local antique malls or the community thrift store, I've got my radar on! Good thing too, because look what I found.

A staffordshire made relish dish, a butter crock and a sweet pitcher...

I found the "cheese dish" but I didn't particularly care for the wood base. I substituted a princess house fantasia ware dish, added my china cup and faux roses and VOILA!
When I saw the little rose pitcher on the right, I thought it to be so sweet I just had to have it. See that vase on the left? That is the piece de resistance...It was marked $3.95 but it was 50% off . What makes it even more special? It's a Lenox! It was a successful thrifting adventure...

You did good! I like what you found. I like my alone time when I get it too...even thought it's only the three of us here. I love when Rich and Tim go camping. A weekend to myself is such a gift!
