Remember my living room makeover? I hung up some plates and have been looking for more to fill in the space.
Blue transferware plates are not so easy to find. I keep my eye open for them and I managed to find two, a large and a smaller, but didn't want to hang them up until I had enough to make the pattern even of large and small.
Last month I finally found another smaller plate at "Chuck's Bargain Barn" outside of town.
I like the plate to be meaningful to me, in design or picture. We visited Mt. Rushmore as a family in 2014.
Now I have enough to complete the pattern and fill in the space. Yay for cheap decorating.
Other items from my jackpot haul included:
One tile trivet and two other tiles to make trivets with. I asked TopDad if he'd help me this summer make frames and he said he would.
Beautiful brass candlestick for stay-at-home dinner date nights.
And then there were the linens. Oh be still my heart.
First up is the gorgeous linen cutwork embroidered tablecloth, large enough for my big table.

Flannel sheet set for $6.00!!
Another flannel sheet that will make a great backing for a Christmas quilt.
And, pink sheets, top and bottom, for my pink bedroom.
I also scored some DVD's for $2 each, but as they are gifts, I won't show what they were.
And that is why I like shopping at thrift stores. It is a treasure hunt that never gets old!
