PINK Saturday

Its Saturday again. How do I know it is? Because its PINK Saturday hosted by Beverly from HowSweetThesound. You will want to click onto her site and see all the other PINK participants. Be sure to leave your mark, your comment so they know you've been there!

I caught it. I caught what Shelia had last week. You know hearing voices softly calling to me and the car "being directed" to a thrift store. Once I got there I thought well I'll just go in quickly and after all I haven't been there for a little while. The parking lot was FULL! I did manage to find a parking spot and inside I saw all the 50% off signs. This was really exciting.

I went to my favourite area of the store and look what I found and brought home with me....Dishes.

There were 16 pieces to this set. Are they not pretty for spring and summer? First there is the bread/dessert dish with a pretty yellow flower. The outer rim is a soft gray and white.

The second piece is this beautiful bowl with a pretty purple flower. I know the PINK is coming.
The PINK dinner plate! They all show no wear and I'm so happy I found them. Now these dishes were $12.95 for the set. I got them for $6.50 because they were half price. I was so excited. I love them.
Enjoy your Saturday. I hope your weather has continued to be beautiful. I hope you'll visit the other beautiful PINKS today. Have a lovely day.... Judi xoxo

I'm so sorry to hear that you've caught THAT sickness-that-no-drug-can-ever-help!

The plates are lovely--so delicate in the design. That's my kind of plate! Happy Pink Saturday.

I hear voices too when I pass my favorite shopping spots and it's my husband's voice telling me to stop buying stuff! Ha!

I cannot believe what a deal you got on those plates! They are beautiful! I would love to have those. Even at the full price marked, they would have been a deal. I'm a little jealous. laurie

I am so surprised they were left on the shelf - they are so cute - and for $6.50 what a bargain! I'm looking forward to seeing them this Thursday! ~ Robyn
