Flea Market Finds

This week I bought this stack of lovely plates. I love the cheery, floral design. Seven plates for $6.00
My current dinnerset is white and I have had it for 6+ years. While I'll still be using it, I thought our table could do with a change. Question...should I have also bought the six bowls for $6.00? I am hoping they might unload another box and discover some cups. I'll be popping in through the week just in case.


Over the past couple of months, I've had some lucky finds in the vintage sheet department.
So today I thought I share my growing stash...

There's a new quilt happening in my head! Better get the binding on my other one;)

And another sprinkling of Belles Buttons. Yes that's a little turtle button. I do wonder where he came from.

Did you find any treasures this week? Once again, I'm linking up with Sophie.

Ohhhh the little turtle button! I'd like to think he came from a well loved little boy's cardigan or something :-)

The color combinations on your plates really make them interesting. Love the buttons, especially the turtle!

Your white dinner wear will look great with the colorful plates. Hope you will find the cups and bowls on your next trip to the thrift store.

Get back there and grab those bowls, pronto. The fabric stash has me swooning, love the greens and the orange/pinks in particular. So yum to see them all in a pile like that too. melx

Great thrifting!

I love your sheets! What a good score to come across so many.

The buttons are lovely too. I love vintage buttons.

I haven't had the time to go op shopping for a month or so but am trying to go this week. I've gotten a heap of wool check blankets lately for $2 and $3 each which I'm pretty happy about.

Good luck getting the bowls :).
