SUCH A LITTLE...

It takes such a little to make me soooo happy...
like this adorable RED and WHITE vintage tablecloth that my
sweet, sister friend,  JEANNE from BACKYARD NEIGHBOR
sent to me back in the summer.
It's so cheery...a bright spot in my dining room and I just love it..
THANKS AGAIN,
I went to GOODWILL today...
just a brief, stop-in-and-see-what-treasure-is-waiting-for-me type thing, you know.
I began to hyperventilate when I spied this
ADORABLE white set with black letters...

Now some of you might know of my obsession with
anything DISH that's WHITE with BLACK LETTERING..

I grabbed this little set up so fast, I nearly threw it through the ceiling..
$4.00
let's hear it for GOODWILL...
It was all taped together and I never did see the markings on the bottom
until I got home...
I said great balls of fire...
give me a HIGH FIVE !!
just the words POTTERY BARN
sets my heart to thumpin'..
I couldn't find the set I bought in the PB catalogs
but this little condiment set is similar and it sells
for $39.00
I'M IN LUV...
it just takes such a little.....:))


 I love taking pictures, too...
:)
I'm linking with 
My thanks to the lovely hosts..
these memes are sooo much fun.

Hi BJ Sweetie...
So beautiful. I love this share tonight. What a bargain you found. I bet you looked around to see if anyone was watching you, thinking it might be Candid Camera or something of the sort. Then grabbed it and ran for the register.

I love the lettering and yes it is so you. I am tickled pink you found it. Love the addition of the candy cane sticks. Looks so festive around here. Thank you for sharing Sweet Nothings with me tonight. I love it when you do.

Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Sweet deal and sweet post! Love your little set. Everything looks nice and festive!

Holly said...

Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish said...

Those are too cute!! I love finding great deals like those at Goodwill.

Beverly said...

Ooh! You did good, girl. I love it, too.

You find the best goodies. I want to go shopping with you.♥

Denise @ http://www.somanytables.com/ said...

BJ,
Came back to your blog and signed up as a follower.
Don't you just LOVE a bargain! You sure scored big time. The best part is, you got them because you like them, not because they were PB items. Then, discovering where they came from when you got home, put icing on the cake.

In poking around you blog, I saw that you have little musical notes by one of your lines. I went into the source page and stole the code. Hope you don't mind. I will be using them in my next post. Do let me know if you'd rather I didn't use them.

Rita said...

Finally back to my blog world! love all your precious swwet nothings; coming here makes me smile; thank you.
Please share your thoughts on the last day of this month.

Jeanne said...

Good morning bj, thank you so much for the shout out. It sure put a smile on my face this morning. The tablecloth looks fine hanging there so pretty.

Your latest find in GW is awesome. I am so happy for you to find what you admire so much. Lucky you to be at the right place a the right time. BIG smile here. Keep taking photos bj, I love the way you share them with us.

Gotta get going, I am still decorating. sigh! I am finishing today.

Happy hunting my dear sister friend,
Love, Jeanne

Dishesdone said...

What a great find, I can see why you are in love with the set!

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

You really have the best luck finding great stuff!! Adorable pitchers.

Denise Marie said...

Theresa said...

Great find! Love them:) Hope your day is an extra special one! HUGS!

SmilingSally said...

Jeanne is a generous lady, and she sure knows what you like, BJ.

I love your find at GW--most anyone would.

Kathleen said...

They are very cute! You know PB is way overpriced. I only shop the outlet and wait for the sale there! I cringe when I hear people paid full price for things I get for a few dollars!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Oh, you got so very lucky didn't you? I would have grabbed that myself...it is perfect for your house!!

Scribbler said...

I have the same set and use it every day. It was around $30 if I remember right -- I worked at PB one Christmas, so I used my discount! You were quite lucky to find this. PB only had them in the stores for a short time.

Melody said...

Hi BJ! What a wonderful find! I'd be doin a little happy dance too.

Kathleen Grace said...

Those would make me happy too BJ! It doesn't matter whether you get them full price or for a real steal, those things are darn cute!

Kathy said...

BJ ...your place is top of the heap for Christmas Decor!
You did it up big.
and the goodwill find...lucky duck!
sooooo cute.

Pat said...

BJ I thought I had been by and left a comment on this. We've been running around this week and I've been trying to finish the decorating!

Anyhow...I love this post! Wonderful set. I know you will enjoy.
