I love green and pink together....and this little cup caught my eye, especially when I saw that it was marked $1.00. (Oh, me.....my poor kids and grand kids are going to have to cart all this "stuff" right back to Goodwill after I die!! SORRY, KIDS!)
ANITA (PRAIRIE DREAMS), I almost felt guilty when I bought this...I know you love pink and green and ROSES. What will ya trade me for it??? lol :)
This little gravy boat reminds me of an Aladdin's lamp in a way....Some of the gold is beginning to wear off but it looks pretty, tucked in with my white ironstone. $1.00 is a hard price to beat.......
I picked up these little red, white and khaki pillows....I am trying soooo hard to ignore these 2 chairs and ottoman covered in French blue. I love the chairs and want to get them recovered but it will cost as much, if not more, than if I bought new chairs and an ottoman. SHOOT !! Since we are saving for a big screen tv right now, new chairs are not in the budget. So, I'm trying to bring my reds over into this part of the room and since I have no other blue in the room, the poor chairs look like they are LOST. Oh, what to do? Just grin and bear it, I suppose. I'm not much on slipcovers as they seem to always be...well,......slipping !!
I bought the 2 chairs and ottoman, in excellent condition, at a moving sale a couple of yrs ago for $135.00. The color was just perfect at the time...I had a cottage style room with yellows and blues. But not any more..
Now, I am EXPECTING, just any minute, to find 2 matching chairs, plus ottoman, for $135.00, covered either in a floral deep red fabric or a large black and white plaid or check. Don't ya know they will show up just any minute!!?! :(Maybe I just need to find a way to bring a little blue to the other end of the room but....the style of the chairs just doesn't work in the room. Oh, well, more important things to ponder!!
HAPPY DAY ~
