Thrifty Fall Finds

I know I said I was going to decorate with what I already have for fall

well, I lied!

I didn't mean to. That really was my plan.

I visited Goodwill and well you know the rest of the story ... these little dessert plates hopped right in my

 cart when I passed by.

I love the little leaf detail.

This white pitcher followed right behind them.

The six dessert plates were only 2.25 with my senior,  young and fiesty, discount.

The pitcher was the same. I love to use pitchers as floral vases, especially white ones.

I'm going to Try to not buy any more fall things. I think I jinxed myself


a relaxed day of bargain hunting and enjoying the season can be such fun!

Hope you all are enjoying this wonderful fall and y'all come on back.

  1. OOOhhhh...I couldn't have passed these up either! Great finds! I found you at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesday!
    Have a great week!

  2. Love that little pitcher. It reminds me that I have one I put away. I found it months ago and forgot all about it! I'll dig it out tomorrow :)

  3. I love the leaf plates and the pitcher! Great
    finds...isn't the Goodwill a wonderland? Mine is huge and five minutes away! I have
    to stop myself from going too often...they
    already know me there! Thank you for stopping by Flora Doora!

  4. I would have been disappointed in you if you'd left these fantastic plates behind. They are perfect for fall. La

  5. My blog name is A Conversation at Goodwill so you are preaching to the choir about buying at Goodwill. I can never resist a good buy either. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Oh, I love the roasted pumpkiny color of your desert plates. They almost look deep enough to hold some pumpkin soup? Great find for any fall table setting. Thanks for stopping by the high street cottage, your blog is divine. tami

  7. OMG! Well of course you couldn't pass up thoses fab finds! Love the color of the dishes and the leaf detail is sweeeet!
    Darling pitcher Love the crisp white ☺☺☺
    Thanks for following!!♥♥♥♥

  8. You can't help it if things jump into your cart!!! Must be they wanted to go home with you. How could you refuse?! LOVE the pitcher, and those little plates are perfect.

  9. ooo, no wonder you bought them. They are precious.

  10. It would've been hard to leave those lovely dishes there, I agree. So glad you didn't, because now we get to enjoy them, too. :)

    Thanks for linking up to Simple Pleasures today. This is a wonderful addition.

  11. Who can resist fall decorations? Not me! I especially love the plates (and that you justified your multi-use of the pitcher - ha!).

  12. I lie all the time...seriously not intending too. But as soon as I say I will when I I am learning to keep my mouth shut. What pretty just had to get them, I totally understand! Thanks for joining me and making me smile:)

  13. Such cute plates and yes they must have jumped into your cart! Happens to me all the time!!

  14. You certainly did get some cute dishes for fall! I would not have passed those up either! What a deal! They are the perfect color aren't they? I actually own your new pitcher too. I have that dish set by Gibson with the fruit motif. I used to use mine for untensils long before I got a basket that I use. I can't wait to see how you use yours.

  15. Well you had to buy those! I would have scarfed them up to. My GW rarely has nice dishes like that.

  16. OMG!! I would have grabbed those plates and ran with them as i am sure you did!! LOL!!
    LOVE them!!

    Thanks for always checking in on me!! I love your visits!!


  17. Isn't it funny how things just jump right into your cart? Same thing happens to me, at times.

  18. Love your plates and there's nothing wrong with a young and fiesty discount!!! lol! This girl loves a discount!

    Take care!!!

  19. I would have snatched those beauties up in a hurry! Fabulous find girlie!


  20. I hear you! Those leaf plates are darling. I'm glad you found them and brought them home.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I
read each and every one.
Have a blessed day!
