It has been months since I had a good yard sale, thrift store, curbside browse and I am feeling the need for a little thrift therapy :>) I wouldn't say I'm addicted to the hunt. No, addiction is a pretty strong word with negative connotations, and I don't think thrifting is negative, therefore, it can't be an addiction, right? Hmmm. Well, I just happened to be in a thrift store the other day, and these bowls were being put out. I love red, and this deep, rich red with roses is so pretty! Four soup bowls and a large vegetable/serving bowl and I had a coupon for half off so I snapped them up. They say Myott, Staffordshire England on the back and they are in really great shape. SO, I come in the door and pull them out to show youngest daughter (who is so much like her father!). Look honey aren't these pretty? She looks at me and says, "did you need those for something?" Well..., yeah..., I can use these for soup and... stuff.... Well, what does need have to do with it anyway? Someday I'm going to remember that question when she is all grown up and a bargain (addict) hunter herself!
Hehe that is funny. Those bowls are beautiful and I bet they enjoy your special soups in them!ReplyDelete
They are lovely.ReplyDelete
Ouuu yes Kathy you did "NEED" those pretty bowls!!ReplyDelete
They have your name on them!
Pretty pretty pretty!
Well of course they were needed.... They are so pretty too!ReplyDelete
Love the color--how serendipitous you were there when they were just hitting the shelves!ReplyDelete
Kathy, I love the bowls, they are so pretty. I know you will enjoy using them. Gosh, need what's that :)? Hehehe...Hugs, LindaReplyDelete
Nice find! Yes you daugther will be like you someday and you can gently remind her of the days she rolled her eyes at mom's finds at the thrift store. lol!ReplyDelete
Of course you needed them -- beauty is food for the soul! They're wonderful, Kathy, and what a great find!ReplyDelete
Oh I think that 'youngest daughter' needs retraining. You better start now. "did you need those for something?" What a funny thing to say!!LOLReplyDelete
but of course! Geeze! Is there a difference between "want" and "need"? I say NO (when it comes to thrifting) wants and needs are the same (because the prices are so terrific of COURSE you NEED it!ReplyDelete
YES...you needed these bowls. They are beautiful. They were orphans and you provided a home for them...LOL What a wonderful find.. Lucky youReplyDelete
Haha, yes you needed them. They are so pretty to. You will definately enjoy them. I too can not wait for a good yard sale or thrift find. It can't come fast enough.ReplyDelete
Those are very pretty soup bowls and it's great that you got them at a good price!ReplyDelete
LOL - your daughter is funny! Of course you needed them for something! :-)ReplyDelete
They are great Kathy. Love the colors in them.
IF YOU DIDN'T ADOPT THEM THEY COULD SIT THERE ALL SAD AND FORLORN FOR A LOOOOONG TIME!ReplyDelete
Need?.....NEED? Ohhhhhh, so we are supposed to NEED all these lovlies we find at thrift stores as well as LOVE them? Oh, dear.....I may be in trouble......LOL...your little daughter has a lot to learn about thrifting...and won't it be fun to teach her!!!?!!ReplyDelete
hugs to you and her both,
The bowls are just beautiful. And you are right what does need have to do with it.ReplyDelete
That's exactly what my daughter would say! That younger crowd, they just don't appreciate the hunt do they? I love the dishes...I too would have snapped those puppies up. They are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Ha, I have a daughter like that too. She would say, "you BOUGHT that?" Ah, phooey.ReplyDelete
Happy weekend, you found some lovely dishes. Now go make some soup!
Hi Kathleen! Thanks for dropping by and taking part in the survey, it's been so much fun! Have a great weekend~xoReplyDelete
HERE, HERE!!! Your friends all get it and am happy you bought them! LoriReplyDelete
Hi Kathy! Of course you need these, anyone would need these beautiful finds!! Your daughter is so cute, you are right, wait until she is all grown up, she'll be wanting to 'borrow' them from you :) Jenn and JacquiReplyDelete
You always find the prettiest things! These are gorgeous and will look great in your house! I am ready for thrifting too! I NEED some new treasures also. Hugs, Jan
What gorgeous bowls. You can never have too many of something that pretty :-) RosieReplyDelete
I just discovered your Etsy shop and love your hearts to bits. I too am addicted to flea markets and estate sales and here in the frozen midwest it seems a long way til spring and summer when I can treasure hunt to my heart's content. I plan to stop back often!ReplyDelete
My husband sees no "need" for any of my dishes either! He keeps threatening to enlarge the house just to fit all the dishes! Okay I tell him! Great find! Too funny about your daughter.ReplyDelete
