Some more thrift store finds...

I've had the itch to shop lately and when your on a tight budget, the best way to go is to hit the second hand stores. First we have the canisters! BTW...these all are real life items....I just love the prints! Strawberries on one and mushrooms/veggies on the other....Then there's the wooden spoon~ Mine have seemed to disappear?? Bet you they're with all those missing spoons:) Also bought 2 little green glasses cause I thought they were cool:)

Thought you might like a close up of the canisters:)

Next is the pretty plates. I've got this idea that I want a set of unmatched floral dishes.....Each piece of china was under a dollar, so I think I can afford that:) ....and I found another white creamer:)

Also bought a few white dishes. Over the years, mine have started to thin out, so it's about that time to restock. I think that this is the smartest way when you have kids......As long as I buy all white dishes, it will feel like I have a whole set...........And I'm not worried about the kids breaking them:)

I just love mixing white dishes with the floral dishes:)

And last but not least is the Plate I bought for my Mom. My parents have a collection of blue and white, this one will fit right in. As soon as I saw it...well there was a whole set of them...but as soon as I saw it I fell in love with the detail. Mom loves the country just as much as me....And I can't wait to see if she likes it as much as I do:)

I love the blue dish, I am sure your mum will love it too. (I love second hand shops, fairs, flea markets, etc,)

I really like the blue and white you picked for your mom! I also like white dishes. Food looks good in them. I don't have matching plates as well, just the same genre or color like celadon or ceramics etc. :)

I love thrift shopping, I always find old stuff so much more interesting than brand new ones.
