g'day thrifters...

G'day bloggers! My day started off wonderfully this morning...I won the fabulous giveaway from Sarah over at A Beach Cottage! A gift certificate to Anthropologie AND the Australian home magazine Real Living!! Sarah herself was featured in this magazine....can't wait to get my copy! I am sure you all know Sarah and her tale of moving her family from England to her amazing beach cottage in Australia. Her blog is beautiful and inspiring, I know she would love to hear from you! Thank you again Sarah!!

Today I am joining in with other thrifters over at Coastal Charm where Linda is hosting Nifty Thrifty Tuesday. I found this sweet set of 4 Johnson Brothers plates for $3.00...
They are in wonderful condition although the pink one is cracked... Easy to hide if I tuck it in somewhere, or cover it with a cupcake! The roses on the pretty aqua one are a bit faded... Maybe those two were the original owners favorites! The yellow one is perfect for a sunny spring day...which we are not having today... Last but not least is this pretty dove gray one... I just love them all! I think I will use them for my Easter dinner table then scatter these roses around my house. Until Easter I have them stored in this pretty basket under the table in my den... Yesterday I showcased the pink plate, today it is the pretty aqua one...Feathering my nest and making little changes here and there makes me happy! Well today I am over the top happy thanks to Sarah ! G'day thrifters!!

Good morning and thank you for sharing your pretty Johnson Bros. plates. I have a pink one but it has fruit on it instead of flowers. I actually like the flowers better. I won mine on eBay several years ago and I always meant to get others but never did. I LOVE the aqua one! I love the shape of the plates and the romantic look of them. Very pretty! I am hosting a Tea over on my blog. I'd love to have you stop by for some. Have a wonderful day.

Pretty plates Sandi and I have a basket exactly like yours! I was trying to decide whether to take it to my booth or not. Trying to downsize my pretties. :)
I love your plates under your sign in your last post too. They look wonderful with it.

If I had my way I would have plates all over my house. I can't get enough of them.
Yours are so pretty and look nice displayed in the basket.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment. I'll be back to visit you often.
