A Girl and A Boy

A boy and a girl
came home with me from a Estate sale
I attended with my SIL, BIL and Mr.
(yes, Mr went to be with his brother!)

I love all things gardening related
I love dishes with children themes.

a sweet little girl with a watering can
a sweet little boy with a pail

You can see they were $15, so one was in my 
$20 budget I keep myself under.
I couldn't bare to split them up!
could you?
So they came home with me!
They are going in my kitchen

And maybe Mr. has learned something?
He spotted this for me!
1 1/2 quart delphite blue Pyrex
I do not collect the blue but it was in perfect shape

And if you missed the last post this is the last thing that came home
"for a good girl" cup

What would you of brought home?

Nice finds. You had no choice! You had to get both plates! So sweet! What would I have come with?? Probably anything you would have left behind!! I was just at Goodwill today. I found two Blue Willow plates :)

Ann- I just love those little plates. They are as cute as cute can be. What a fun find! I didn't know that Pyrex made that shade of blue- it is very pretty- xo Diana

Love those plates! I would have grabbed them both,too.
That bowl is awesome. Love that color and you know you had to have it.
Love your chipped little cup, too. It was in your last post.
Glad you found some real treasures. We are getting rain but it is warming up tonight. 47 while ago.
55 tomorrow! Yippee. The snow is all gone here, but we didn't have as much as the Charleston/Paris line did, so not sure about south of here, but it will be gone by tomorrow.

Should have haggled on the plates:):) but yes they belonged together. I think your husband was probably proud he found something nice.oxoxo, Susie

Those plates are adorable and just perfect for you. I have been perusing your blog and I love your little garden shed. I would love one just like that.

I'd certainly brought home those plates, dear friend!!!
Must have been "plate week", for I, also brought home two plates from our adventure on Wednesday!!!
Love your recent finds...sometimes one just HAS to go beyond our budget to obtain the wishes of the heart!!!
