Thrift store finds

Finally, I have scored a winner at the thrift store!! I admire all the wonderful finds other bloggers share from their trips to the trift store and I never seem to find anything much (sob, sob!) but this week I did. I walked in and right in front of me was this gorgeous soup tureen complete with a matching white plate underneath.


It was just perfect to add to my collection of white dinnerware.


I tried not to grab it with both hands and run... I just love it. I'm sure it has never been used.


I can just picture it now - full of yummy chowder on a cold winter's day.



I also came home with the oval platter. It is a Franco Giorgi by Quadrifoglio platter - just $5 what a bargain!


Just look at that gorgeous rim with fruit on it!


I set my $8 soup tureen and my $5 platter up on my little kitchen cupboard. I have them sitting on a beautiful rose teatowel I purchased from my sister's shop. (That cost more than my 2 pieces together!!). Thank goodness for family discount!
