Thrifty Finds For The Dining Room

Since I haven't been able to yardsale in a couple of weeks, I decided to share some finds from a couple of months ago. This particular Saturday, I stopped at a sale in a very nice neighborhood not too far from my house and found a ton of great things! These are some of my finds:




All of these beautiful teapots were $2.00 each. I bought them to re-sell but decided I couldn't part with them! They look great in my china cabinet. I'm afraid I've started another collection!

At the same sale I found this cute faux arrangement:
It was either $1.00 or $2.00, can't remember which.

Finally, when I decided to use this color scheme in my kitchen, I scoured eBay for calendar plates from hubby's and my birth year. Do you remember these calendar plates? I was happy to find these:







Thanks, once again, to Rhoda for hosting and allowing others to share their thrifty finds. Please visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality and see all the great finds!

I Love the teapot with the pink roses! I've been looking for something just like that... or even a teacup. That white and pink looks great with a blue and white china piece next to it.
Love your thrifty finds.

Hi Jackie,
First let me say your “JUNK” looks pretty excellent to me! I love those sweet little teapots and I would have had a hard time parting with them also. I have never seen calendar plates before, but I like them. Now that I have seen yours I will probably start seeing them everywhere.
