Thrifty Thursday

I'm so lucky my grandparents came up for a quick visit yesterday, and are staying until Saturday.  It was a spur of the moment impulse for them, and I'm tickled to have them here.  I love that my children can know and love their great-grandparents.  It's fun to show off our new home, make Gran and Papa a special meal, and fix their hearing aids.  So often they have hosted our family for visits and do so much for us.  I'm happy to have the opportunity to return the favor.  I can never pay them back for all they've done for me, but I can show them I learned how to be a hostess. 

My Gran and I have been best friends since forever, and one of the things we love to do is shop.  It used to be malls and department stores, but today I showed her how much fun thrift store shopping can be.  We found some great clothes for my little ones, and the items you see.  Aqua divided plates for lunches, my first vintage sheet finds, and the pretty glass pieces.  Can you guess what they'll be?

I really had to fight the urge to thrift store shop today, and your post is making it even harder!! I am looking for some awesome plates/cups to make a tiered server for my mom for Christmas, and a cake stand for me-is that what you're up to with those?? Please post pics!!

How fun! I love thrift stores. I agree with Jess, the glass plate ould be glued to one of the glasses and become a cake/sweets holder. Or a condiment dish. Neat items!
