Pretty Thrifted Dishes & Vintage Bliss Tuesdays Linky Party #90

Thank you to all of the new visitors who came by and linked up at last week's Vintage Bliss Tuesday party! If you didn't check out the lovely treasures linked up, be sure to visit last week's post now! This week, I'm sharing a couple of the finds I got when my mom and I visited the Salvation Army thrift store in her town this past weekend. They tend to have a different variety of dishes on hand than my local store does.

I was excited when I saw this pretty pink and white ceramic trivet with wire handles. I'm not sure if it's vintage or not, but I think it's lovely whether new or old. I have a bit of a trivet addiction. At $2, I couldn't resist buying this particular trivet.

I also bought this pretty blue and white bowl, which somebody had been using as a candle holder (there were wax drippings hardened on the bowl).

I think this bowl could be useful in any number of ways - to hold keys, as a soap dish, for serving peanuts or to hold a dipping sauce - just to name a few. It was a whopping $1. "You're coming home with me," I said.

Do you collect dishes? Do you stick to a particular pattern or colour or buy whatever strikes your fancy?

  1. Hi Joann. That pink trivet is very interesting. I haven't seen one like it so I think it would have went home with me, too! Have a great week and thank you for hosting.

    1. I hadn't seen one before either Dianne. Have a great week too!

  2. Well, Jo, if my two links today don't answer your question of do you collect dishes, I don't know what does! Hahaha, yes, I'm a dish keeper, and I'm afraid it's an illness. Be careful. Be very careful. :)
    Thanks for hosting us, and have a great week.

    1. Hi Rita, haha I can't wait to see what you've linked up. I'm afraid I already have that illness in common with you. ;) Have a wonderful week!
