Thrifty Treasure Finds-Tray Redo


Today I have a mix of new treasures and a vignette redo.  I found this wonderful plate at GW for $1.  I thought the colors and the flowers were so pretty. 

This wonderful tin pocket was also $1.  I plan to create a Christmas arrangement in it for my front door.

This is just a piece of an easel, but perfect for what I wanted, and for 50c, perfect.

See how deep it is.  Perfect for stacking plates in.

This is the picture I showed you of my new tin that I stacked some plates in.  I didn't have anything to hold them, so they just sort of slid all over the place.

Now see how well they are all held in place with the easel.  Much better.

Plenty deep to hold several dinner plates and salad plates.  Now I don't worry they will get broken.

Now with the cooler weather, the iced tea has been replaced with lots of hot tea, so a new mug for my tea for .50c.  Love the big handle.

This is the shelf hanging in the breakfast room.  I loved that it had hooks for my collection of small white pitchers.

I found this lovely brown transferware pitcher to add to the collection. It was a real steal for $1.99.

This is the markings on the bottom.  Just a reproduction, but I loved the pattern.

I think it makes a nice addition to the collection.

Don't forget the Christmas Cloche Party on December 10th.  I can't wait to see all of your gorgeous creations.  Be sure to grab the button and spread the word to all of your friends.  These are always so much fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.


I am joining these wonderful blogs for some fabulous parties, be sure to visit them and see all the amazing treasures.

  1. Hi Marty! I like your thrifty treasures! Isn't it so much fun to find these lovely things for such a great price? That plate is just beautiful--it looks like it was made for your home!

    While I was here, I also ready your post about a simple elegant centerpiece. What great ideas you offer there! I especially love the idea of adding the pumpkins--what a difference that makes, and all for so little $$. Thank you for sharing your inspiration!

  7. Great price on the easel, Marty! Those are like $9.99 and up at Michaels! I actually think I have one like that, too {somewhere around here}. : ) Love your decorative tin on your island and the easel works perfect for your dishes in there. Nice pitcher, too ~ I love a brown and white {or cream} transferware!

  15. Now that was a great haul!!! My GW store never has anything neat....on the plate holder...I use these clear plastic letter or business folder holders I buy at Staples....they come in different sizes, they are usually used on a desktop, they look like a toast rack. Nice job Marty, it all looks great!!! hugs...cleo

  22. I love all the goodies you bought this trip. The plate is beautiful and so is the pitcher...it looks great hanging off the shelf with the others.

    Great idea using the little thingie for the plates. I never would have thought of that. I don't think I would have thought of using the plates in the vignette. How pretty!

    XO,

  35. Good Lord girl, You hit the jackpot. Our GW doesn't have these great items. The dealers in Savannah learn the stocking patterns on all the thrift stores and wipe out all the good stuff. Love the transfer pitcher and the coffee/tea cup. All the stuff is great and such good prices.
    I have been traveling for three weeks. Just got back and managed to get out a post yesterday. Please stop by for a visit. Hugs, Ginger
