Thursday Treasure - When & Where You Least Expect It

There is something quite elegant about this simple white-on-white shot. A while back, I was browsing the web for white dish inspiration, I spotted this photo on Country Living Magazine's website. I immediately added it to my "I Love This" file and went along my merry little way.

Fast forward to yesterday. I was out and about and decided to check out Value Village thrift store. I find it's always best to thrift with an open mind to eliminate any form of disappointment, and that's exactly what I did today. My first stop is always housewares and you're going to LOVE what I found!! I'll show you the receipt, then I'll share the goodies I secured.

As you can see, there's a $3.03 SPLURGE purchase listed there, but when you see the item, you'll completely forgive me for spending so much cash! LOL

These were 40 cents each.

These were 20 cents each and are the perfect inside joke for a friend. I presented them to him today and we laughed hysterically for several minutes non-stop!

And now on to that "major" $3.03 purchase....

I couldn't bear to leave in on the shelf!! I'm sure you understand. Yes, the white dish saga continues...and continues...and continues.

Don't you just LOVE finding great treasures when you least expect it?

Happy Thursday!!

  1. You really know how to find a great deal! It's truly a gift. Love all of these. The yellow really pops in the white container.

  2. Thanks Elizabeth!! It's a matter of being in the right place at the right time and I have a great time thrifting. One of the MANY reasons I love white dishes is the way colors always look great with it.
