Once home, I thought how cute those dishes might look on that turquoise/violet/yellow tablecloth. I set them out and couldn't resist......not that I need anymore dishes. They looked so pretty sitting out in my dining room that I decided to keep them. While at the mall the other day, Sandy and I were taking a walk around when we spotted several tea pots that would work well with the set. A quick trip to Target and TJMaxx and I had glasses and placemat to match. Thought I would show them off to you thrifters.......nothing like recycling, repurposing, rewarding!!!!!

Everything Old is New Again:)
I found this set of dishes in several trips to my favorite Thrift Shop! One visit I picked up a large number of plates and bowls..........only to find another huge selection of them about a month later...YEA! Now, I wasn't buying them for myself, but to sell in my booth at the mall. They have been sitting in my garage for over a year with occasional threats to list them on Ebay or take them to Recycled Rose. I must let you know that the original investment was a whole 12.00 total! While vacationing with my sister and brother-in-law, we visited an antique mall in Paducah, Kentucky. I found this lovely vintage tablecloth for 7.00 and snatched it up! Again, not for myself but to sell in our booth:)
