Friday is the Hub’s day off…it’s been our “date day” for years.
Last Friday we went to our favorite little restaurant in Camas, Washington which just happens to be across the street from my favorite antique store! So after my fabulous bowl of tomato basil soup, (and several generous bites of the Hub’s calzone stolen off his plate), I shopped while the Hubs read. (He’s so good to me! Of course we made an early day of it so he could get back home for college basketball that evening!)
One hour later and twenty dollars poorer I had…
this table runner made from vintage toweling.
There’s really no words to describe the softness of this homespun, time worn fabric…
I love it!
Included in my $20 purchase was this oval ironstone bowl and a unique piece of silverplate to add to the few pieces I already have.
Then a couple days later driving by the Salvation Army I noticed that everything was 1/2 price!
(Insert squeal of brakes and a sharp turn into the parking lot!)
I found this white bowl made by the Meakin company from England and got it for only $1.50!
It looks to me like it probably had a lid at one time, but it’s fine to me without.
My favorite find is the four handle-less cups with matching saucers made by the Syracuse company that I got for 25 cents each! Right away I knew they’d be perfect little dessert cups.
But the whole time I was at the antique store and the Salvation Army I didn’t find what I was really looking for…
big, heavy white ironstone bowls for soup, stew, or even deep dish cobblers.
Imagine my surprise when I found the perfect ones…at the Dollar Tree!
I bought eight of them.
So, for about $32 I have a whole lot of new white lovelies to play house with!
Happy Friday Everyone!
