Here's the story. I love gold. I love anything that has a 70's vibe. But most importantly, I love dishes! Over the years I have had many sets of everyday dishes. I think it is my love of pattern that sucks me in. I stay away from the kitchen stores because I know that I am likely to come home with a new set of dishes that I don't need. Rob is no help in this addiction of mine as he seems to have a thing for new dishes too. Needless to say, many sets of dishes have been donated to charity over the years. After all, a person only needs so many dishes, especially when you hate entertaining and cooking! ;) A few years back, I bought a large set of plain white Corelle and decided to keep it forever and stop this silly dish buying.
Well, when I wandered through the crockery section at the thrift store and saw a set that Kitty Forman (That 70's Show) would be proud to serve from, I really couldn't pass them up! I tried to keep walking but I just kept coming back to them!
So here is my "golden" treasure all purchased for a total of $8.70!! Housewares were 50% off so it was an even sweeter deal than usual!
In other home decor and love of the 70's news, we are waiting on delivery of two new chairs for the living room. Sadly, Rob broke his 13 year old Lazy Boy recliner, although it was pretty funny to watch. ;) Here's a peek of the fabric I chose for what will be known as, "the loud chair".
And just so I can justify this blog as "scrappy", look what I found while thrifting for $0.20. Real wood and made in Canada! Who says that all embellishments must be found at the LSS?
