I love Tom – he is a Department 56 employee and I met him at the thrift store. Do you see how MANLY he is – and he packs HEAT ! That is a BIG GUN.. I saw him the first time for $14.99 and I would not spend that type of money – no Siree Bob or should I say No Way Tom! I went back a couple of weeks later and I found him again…I think he was smitten with me, or me smitten with him….he was half price for $7.50 and I still didn’t want to spend that much…..but he was sooooo hunky cute. Wait till you see how talented he is….it is at the end of this post….
First we start out with these Pfaltzgraff dishes (they are just like Marty’s - at A Stroll Thru Life – in fact I purely blamed it all on Marty when I spotted these at the thrift store - and had to get them..earlier this year)I have a place setting for 12. I did not display all the dishes or the accessories that I have collected the last few months. This set screams Fall to me. Question: Do your dishes, animals and other things you love – talk to you ?
The flatware came from the thrift. I made the little name setting tags.
The candle holder I used to lift the coffee pot , I found at the thrift store yesterday for $1.99 and I did not paint it….
The glasses are a neat greeny teal color and I was thrilled when I saw that they matched my placemats (which are Longaberger and I have owned for years)
I love to stack mugs – I found these at the thrift store , just this weekend for a buck a piece.
One dollar goblets from the thrift store…I have a set of four.
Napkins from Penney's , I got them in the spring for two bucks for 4. Tablecloth is a Ralph Loren , I have owned for a couple of years.
Sorry , I got a little carried away with the pictures as I found the RIGHT LIGHT for picture taking -daylight, Yeah !
of the next picture – it is a bit indecent..remember Hunky Tom well……………….
. I warned you…….
. Please don’t let young children see this next picture…..
. Really are you just that curious ????
