Thrifty Color Theme

It seems I have developed an  obsession  for white dishes this week.

This white pitcher was my most expensive purchase at a yard sale for $6.

I think it was worth it.

This little teapot was $4 and goes well with my mama's J & G Meakin Classic white, that she lets me use!

I picked up the classic cow creamer for a dollar. I know everybody and their dog has one of these, but I didn't. Speaking of dogs, I added this little guy to my dog collection.

Sometime I will have to do a blog on the dog collection, maybe next fall when there is nothing going on outside.

Here is a dollar wooden gobbler, another collection. Martha Stewart, years ago,  once showed a Thanksgiving table with her collection of turkeys, and I started collecting turkeys. (wow, I left that wide open to those who know me)

Four dinner plates, only Gibson, dollar apiece at the thrift store, but I like the pattern.

Simple candlestick, but easily mixed in with tablescapes. $1.00.

Gosh,  $20 and I entertained myself pretty well this week.

Pat, Wow girl! You did fine! I love white and cream dishes, too and the little dog figure is adorable. I have two terrier dog figures and a couple of spaniels. Does that make a collection?
I must say though, I don't have a cow creamer.. althought I looked at several at the thrift stores.
Cute finds and the pitcher is gorgeous.
Happy weekend,

Goodness, that was quite a week! Your white dishes are beautiful. I like the design of the Gibson plate, too. By far that little doggie is my favorite. He is great!
You did very well with your thrifty finds!

Pat, you found a few nice items this week! I like your white plates...and the pitcher is great. Wonder if there will be any yard sales this weekend seeing it is a major holiday...guess I will hit the thrift stores, anyway.
Have a great weekend!
