a month of thrifting

I found these yesterday. I couldn't believe it: after discussions here, months of loving them and being perplexed about why I have never across them in my thrifting, there they were, in all their porcelain glory in the Goodwill. I tried not to be greedy and only bought 2.

The little decorative plate hangs above the kitchen sink and makes me happy when I do the dishes (my least favorite household chore).

The embroidery is on a small tablecloth that needs a little repair but I love the lanterns. And what can I say, I love fabric!

Now I just need a french press for the cover to keep warm.

The baubles were made in East Germany and are beautiful. They were supposed to be a hostess gift as I'm making our tree decorations of the yarn pictured but since I have got them home, I'm feeling all hoardy.

I am now on a thrifting diet (except for essentials).
