Dishes! Dishes! Dishes!



Hello, Dear Ones!
Guess what I found?
Yep, more dishes.

First of all, seems here recently I've been showing you things I've bought.
I don't want you to think I'm all materialistic and stuff...I'm really not.
Mr. Precious is retired and I really try to be conservation with my spending.
So the things I buy when I'm out thrifting are really bargains or I would just pass them by.
Just wanted you to know I'm not all about stuff.
Just some stuff that can be found at great prices, um, cheap! :)

Okay, on with my bargain dishes.
I found a service for eight, Apple Valley by Pfaltzgraft, minus two coffee cups and one saucer.

The darling oval platter.
Look at the sweet little garden and cottage.
Little rabbits are peeping around the veggies.

Veggie bowl and the little gardener is rolling away his carrots while the little rabbits are waiting for him to drop a couple for their dinner! ;)

Eight little cereal bowls, eight dinner plates and eight dessert/salad plates covered in apples.

I adore this sweet pattern. 
Look at the borders around the pieces.

Picking apples on the little cups and the saucers are all ruffly.

I did a little research on this pattern and it came out in either 1996 or 97 but was retired after only one year. I guess folks didn't like it too well and it didn't sell.
Don't know why they retire dishes.
I don't care. No, no Nannette, not one bit!
Now do you want to know my bargain price for this set?
$12
Clap clap for me and turn a couple of cartwheels!!
Woo hooness and everything.
I couldn't stand it so I went to Replacements.com and priced the pieces I brought home with me, added it up and guess what?
To buy these would cost me over $300!!!
Did I do good or what?
Yay, me!!
just sayin'

Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Octopus's Garden

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus's garden in the shade

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus's garden with me

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade

We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Restin' our head on the sea bed
In an octopus's garden near a cave

We would sing and dance around
Because we know we can't be found

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
Lies beneath the ocean waves
Oh, what joy, for every girl and boy
Knowing we're happy and we're safe
Happy and we're safe

We would be so happy you and me
No one there to tell us what to do

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden with you
In an octopus's garden with you
In an octopus's garden with you
