~My Fun Friday~

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a fun Friday too, we all need that once in a while don't we?
I was blog surfing when I came home from the GW and Historical Society porch sale and came across Char from The Pickled Pepper Patch great post on using dishes to make tiered tabletop server's for under $5.00...they are wonderful and I do plan on making one, I think they would be great for the holidays.
Which reminded me of what I had done way back in August...all from Goodwill... and by the way I saw it done on Cherry Hill Cottage in some back posts wish I could remember which one:) You just need a dinner plate, tea cup and a cheese dome, the cheese domes are the most expensive I paid about 3.99 for each of the three I bought and sometimes you have to buy both pieces which I just throw away.
I like this one the best that I did, it's all a creamy white with a black homespun tied around the top, I love the edgeing on this plate. This one is a little fancier but pretty for all those holiday cookies!

This one is pink edged with tiny pink flowers on the cup. BTW that's faux food that I won from Ebay:) I think they would be neat to leave out all the time with faux cupcakes or cinnamon buns!
This is what I came home with from the porch sale and GW, the Christmas ribbon I got for .25 a piece, snowman $2.00, clay pot painted for fall .50 and the cardinal in a nest for .25 I figured I can put him in the tree branches, my mom loved cardinals:) The Wisconson Homestead crock I found at GW for $2.00 anyone from Wisconson no anything about it? I think cheese came in it?
Notice my new mini blinds? Believe me that's a whole other story. LOL

If Stush would have been home I would have had him take a pic of me in this beige sweater from Spegiel for $3.99 at GW, it's brandnew and so soft, the bottom part of the sweater is like the pattern on the sleeve. Love it and I can just imagine the original price it had been, I can't wait to wear it:)
Now I think I need a new pair of brown boots to go with it!!!


  1. You sure did have a fun Friday, Rondell! I love all of your treasures and creations. Isn't Char's blog filled with neat ideas?

    Have a great weekend!

  2. You found some great finds today :) The crock...I have one, too, minus the lid and closure. I have my turned around with the Wisconsin thing against the wall and it holds my knives on the counter, close to the cutting board.

    Have a great weekend!:)

  3. Hey girlie...thanks for sharing your pix!...isn't it neat the beautiful things you can do with plain dinnerware?!....love your blog too!

  4. That is a fun Friday! I love all your finds! I get so excited when I find a little hidden treasure at Goodwill....which reminds me I've got a few finds upstairs that I need to get the paint out and work on...one would go in my kitchen for sure! :) Thanks for reminding me!

    I remember us having one of the Wisconsin cheese crocks when I was younger at home....they did hold cheese spread or something, I believe.

    And I love what you did with the dinnerware and cheese dome! Very cute!


  5. Love your blog! I just started blogging a couple weeks ago. It took me awhile to find all the "prim" sites but I am hitting the jackpot today!
    I will check back often to see what you are up to =) It nice to share decorating ideas!


  6. I had a look at Chars blog earlier also..what a great idea of using up odds and ends of dishes!
    Love what you made as well and the covered dome is a neat idea...also got some great finds..I love days like you had today!

  7. Wow, you got some great things. I like your plates stacked on cups and the glass dome. It makes me want to go to some thrift stores and see what tiered kind of things I could come up with!!! Love doing stuff like you are doing! Great post. Have a wonderful day.

  8. What a neat idea!

    And I love your new sweater!
