New Treasures!!!!

I don't live in a big town where there are amazing garage sales or stuff left sitting on the kerb where anyone can pick it up. I see Blogs with posts about their weekend treasures and wish I had the chance once in a while to find the wonderful treasures they share with us. But then I get these.......
Six Dinner plates with my much loved Violet Pattern on them, in mint condition from my husband. A little Anniversary present. I have looked everywhere for Dinner Plates so I can actually use my Violet China if I have dinner guests. No idea where he picked them up from but very happy he did.
A chance visit to my Brothers on the weekend saw me coming home with these.........

There are four chairs in need of a little TLC but much nicer than the ones I have now. And then I was given this one last week
which will sit nicely at the table with the other ones once I tidy it up a bit.The ways things are going I'm sure the sixth chair will find it's way here so I can complete the set.
Really I am doing alright even with the lack of Garage Sales and I don't have to get up early to get the bargains AND it is way way cheaper!!!

I'll say you're doing alright! Those plates are just lovely & what great chairs! I'm sure the 6th will certainly come your way just as these lovely ones have.

Your new chairs are lovely! I have sort of similar that I got from my grandmother that I recovered a while ago, and just love them. x
