Some thrift store finds (or Goodwill goodness)

I've always wanted a spool rack. And now I have one thanks to Goodwill!
These lovely suitcases (15 cents for both) are for storing fabric.
I think I'm going to collect a few plates to edge my flower beds this year. (Dawnie did this last year and it was so cute!) And shouldn't your plates always match your luggage???

"Good Friday" to you!

Oh I love them all! We used to have those plates when I was a little girl! I remember them. How do you edge your flower garden in them??? 15 cents for both??? Your goodwill is awesome. Ours is really expensive.

Rhonda-say you have a bed along your house-you could either put the plates behind your plants (bury the plates them half way down in the dirt) or in front of the plants. Dinner plates and saucers alternated would be cute.

Yes 15 cents for both because nobody want to pay the full price of 4 dollars or 1/2 price of 2-so they went to the 15 cent rack. The little case was inside of the bigger case.

Thanks for the blast from the past. Those were the first dishes I ever had. I got them in 1968 with the books of green stamps my mom's friends gave me at my wedding shower.
