Look What I Found. . .

Well, look what I found! I have been eyeing turkey plates for Thanksgiving dinner. A few weeks ago I saw some plates at Cracker Barrel that I absolutely loved, but I wasn't willing to pay that much, I think they were $7.99 each. I purchased one turkey plate at TJMaxx week before last for $3.99, I will use it for decorating. Yesterday I went shopping at Old Time Pottery & found these beautiful plates for $2.49 each! I spent another $35.00 with my gift certificate, I still have almost $40.00.

I love the colors!

I also bought salad plates for $1.99 each & a large serving bowl for $8.99.

Here is my birthday gift from Bobby & Kari. It's a very unique box with a lid, & I just love it! Note the saying on the box, I think it's so special! They filled it with yummy biscotti & chocolate flavored coffee. I also loved my happy birthday grandma card!!!

Today is another fabulous fall day, enjoy!

Love the turkey motiff! Makes me want to check into your B&B for Thanksgiving. Nothing better than "finding A Find of the Century" I always say.
I am getting cabin fever with the baby. I think I will venture out.
Have a good day

Gosh, it is GORGEOUS here today too....very cool yet sunny. A perfect Fall day!

We aren't doing anything for Fall break. Actually Lexi spent the night with a friend last night and they are going to the movies today. Just some lazy Fall days....

I saw those plates at Marshall's and wish I had picked them up to go with my white dishes. Hope I can find some more. I think the salad plates were about 3.99, at Marshall's. They are very pretty.

Our Old Time Pottery closed. I miss it.
