Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

A Great Day Thrifting

Yes, more Chicken/Rooster .
I had to buy them , because they matched the spoon rest my daughter gave me for Christmas, and they were only $5 for the five pieces: one 10 " pie plate and four 6" individuals. I love them and will be looking for pieces. Can't you picture a nice Quiche served with individual salads in these? or individual apple pies or chicken pies? I could think of lots uses for these and I can't wait to use them. They are oven, Microwave and Dishwasher Safe.
I also found another prize cook book, a Springy tin tulip with two adorable chickies, a small floral porcelin pitcher & planter dish for my bathroom. I think I did well , all for under $20

Maybe today, I will go searching for more.

Very nice. I am glad that I ignored your request to not overload your "rooster" collection at Christmas! Apparently the spoon rest was a good exception- those dishes are awesome, and such a steal at $5.00!

I am pretty fond of chickens myself and think you found and bought some treasures!

WOW!!!! Cheryl you got some great things! I LOVE those chicken dishes. I've never seen any like those. And the cookbook and all your stuff....great minds think alike! Isn't it fun! We don't have a thrift near here but I do get to antique/junk stores occasionally or garage sales. I've got the decorating mood lately! Great pieces!
