My daughter has been gone the past couple of days and so Little Companion and I have taken the opportunity to see The Karate Kid, we went to the splash pad, and of course have had massive thrifting fun!
Now, while we were at the Goodwill store we came across some plates. There were 4 plates, 3 salad plates, and a round platter. These are vintage Noritake Craftone in the Buttercup pattern, they are dishwasher and oven safe. Do you think that means they are microwave safe? Okay, anyway, Little Companion and I thought they were pretty and would be nice to use occasionally.
I originally put 2 dinner plates and 2 salad plates in my basket and walked away. I had one set for me and one for Little Companion, enough right?
I got about halfway down the isle and figured that my daughter might just join us in using these plates and so I hustled back and got another plate and salad plate. Well, at that point there was only one plate left so I just put it in my basket too. I drew the line at the platter thinking this will just be a casual little setting, I wasn't paying the extra $1.49 for the platter, no way.
So... I'm minding my own business, strolling around with my goods safely tucked in my basket when, while rounding a corner, a lady peers into my basket and starts talking to me about how lovely the plates were. I asked her if she liked to tablescape and she affirmed that she did indeed! While chatting she informed me there was a platter that I really should get to go with the plates. She suggested using candles on the platter as a centerpiece and she was so very nice...
Okay ... so I forked out the extra $1.49 and got the platter.
It is a very happy platter!
