His budget:  $5.00
Spent:  $5.35 
(that’s ok…he scored for $5.35 : )
 For those of you that wonder why the budget…well sometimes what comes in doesn’t go out and it piles…oh WOW it piles…so this keeps everything in control…but as I said before…he is never to leave pretty china behind : )

tons of little leaves and flowers…

I know there are purists out there but these babies are getting shabbied white and going in my kitchen!

Do you know what this is?

I know it is a little weathered…but it gives it character…

so do you know what it is?

It is a vintage egg poacher and I kind of collect them…you see…I was trying to find the “perfect” poach…a story for another time…so when JJ saw this he immediately picked it up…it might not be making breakfast but I do believe I might pop a decorative egg in there and it will be perfect for Easter!!!

No kidding…$1.00!!! and I have 3 people born in August that would love this!

 It is sooooo pretty…
comes with a matching saucer and…
matching cake plate!!!
As if the August tea cup wasn’t enough…this pinkalicious Royal Albert pretty came home…
it may not be vintage…
but she is gorgeous…
and I love her…don’t worry my friends…her destiny is not a collection of mosaic tiles…just a beautiful cup of pear ginger tea!!!
$5 WELL spent!!!! Don’t you think?

  1. Wow, you had so many fabulous links last week! Can’t wait to visit some of them. And as usual, JJ outdid himself, love the pink china pieces and yes in this instance it was approved by the committee to go over budget but only slightly, so good job JJ! I would paint the switch plates, too, and I bet they’re going to look gorgeous! Hugs ~ Mary

  2. and he does it again !!! Well done Joe, I am loving that light switch plate. Go on Andrea you HAVE to paint it white and put it into your kitchen ! The Royal Albery Country Roses cup and saucer retails for around $100 because I collect the original version of it for my Mum. Joe picked up a bargain with that one. The egg poacher is fab too. You could pop a little nest in it for Easter.
    Nice job this week Joe ! 🙂

  3. Love the switch plates that Joe found! I know they’ll look awesome painted white! ♥
