Just Playing…with camera and thrift store finds

Show and Tell

I shopped at the local Goodwill this week and wanted to share some photos that I’m playing with of my “finds”…IMG_2356

Some bowls, salad plates and a platter…in a pretty  floral design…they’re old enough to be “crackley”…and some pretty old doilies….

My photo assistant and I staged the platter on a thrifted cake stand with some fresh flowers and nuts…see the white and yellow doily …

Photo assistant Zoe checks each and every almond for photogenic qualities, striving for the very best photographic advantage…

Up close and personal with that crochet doily…

IMG_2333-1 I believe that the lace on each of these is hand crocheted..

IMG_2341 Forty-nine cent doilies…

IMG_2364  I think this platter will look nice with some yellow and green dishes complementing it…

IMG_2361  Can you see the crackle grazing…Now I’m looking forward to finding complementing pieces, napkins, placemats, silverware, tablecloth, ….maybe this wasn’t such a bargain after all…

Zoe said that we needed a “Little Sunshine” today…

  3. Hi Becky...I could just kick myself for passing up some of the crocheted doilies I have neglected buying in the past... and just look at your pretty dishes! Since I have become a dishaholic, I covet nearly every dish I see...so pass them on!! LOL ;-) Bo

  9. Oh my gosh......you lucky girl! I LOVE and collect vintage linens of all kinds.....yours are, indeed, hand crocheted and delicious. Thrift shopping is the "tops" for me.......I'm always on the prowl. We call it treasure hunting.

    Warm regards,
    Spencer
