I'm also going through and trying to replace all of our dinner ware and glasses with cut glass and thrifted china. I have had to put down a policy of one in/one out as our cupboards are full to the brim as it is. Finding pretty plates at a steal can be not as easy as it sounds around here but I'll get there eventually.
On an un-thrifty related note, our vacuum cleaner has blown up (but is still under warranty), so until Rob has his next day off I am unable to vacuum. I mention this because i just turned around to find Violet throwing scrambled egg onto the floor to watch it splat. Gross! She has also managed to get it in her eyelashes. Really gross!
Here are some things we picked up recently. You should go see Mandy for more thrifting goodness.
A winter dress that will fit in a few months (i.e. winter time!) and some sweet summer dresses for Violet.
Two more summer dresses that fit now, though the one with the lovely collar is somewhere between a top and a dress.
The dress on the left will fit in several months but the one on the right fits now.
A couple of toys, the crocodile races across the floor when you push the lovebirds down and the turtle's head pops out when you push all the shapes down.
There are actually two of the plate on the right but I was using one for my lunch!
The whole lot was about $27, bargin! We love thrifting.
