It's Monday morning and I've got tons of stuff to do. But I wanted to share a few things with you all Above is a little scottie dog I have in my living room. I just love scotties, really all dogs.
I've had a few "meant to be" junking moments lately. This weekend I had another. On Friday I went to a favorite antique store and we drooled over a set of cottage plates. They were expensive and there were only 3.
So on we went. On Sat. morning Hubby and I went out garage saling-It's so hot here it was pretty bad. Until... This one sale had a stack of 3 cottage plates marked at $5 each. I asked her what her best price would be and she said $1 each-I'm sure because we were standing out in 104 degree heat and there was no one else around. Needless to say I bought them(and screamed when we got back in the car). That afternoon I go back to the antiques store to get a tablecloth I had seen the day before and went back to see the plates. Now I had a feeling they were the same, but wasn't sure and (Right you guessed) THE SAME PLATES. Of course I had to buy the fourth one, but still couldn't believe my luck. I know they are Edwin Knowles China made in 1933-but couldn't find a pattern name. Does any one know what it 's called? I just love them and can't wait to do a tablescape with them.
Sorry for rambling on so long. Hope your weekend was cool and fun!
