Soup Tureen Love!

 

Hi everyone! I got off early from babysitting and I’m off tomorrow so gee, I get to do a post! About time I think, whenever I don’t get to post I feel really lost or something, ever feel that way?

I did find some time to run into Good Will and couldn’t see anything I wanted to buy until I came upon an end cap and there she was sitting there waiting for me, with a spoon even, yeah! Here she is I don’t know how old she is but she is crackled…for just $5.99 and a nice size too!

I’ve also been on EBay and online stores trying to find a zebra runner, well would you believe that some ran up to $99.00? I don’t know what they were made of but that was certainly not the price I was thinking of but I found one yesterday and wait….for a whopping $5.00!!! Where at? Well, don’t rule out The Dollar General ladies, I had went in there to look for a Rooster picture, they didn’t have one but I sure about fell over when I saw this, the last one too! For something so trendy the price was right so I snatched it up real quick! Love how it looks and I think I’d like it even better if the table were white but maybe that will happen one day who knows!

It’s nice for a change isn’t it? Hey, for $5.00 it sure is!

Great tureen. What a great price and it has all the parts, too. Who would pay $99 for a runner of any kind? Not me.

I am getting caught-up on reading your blog today!

xoxoxo,

Hi Rondell,

BTW, I am your newest follower thanks to Kim at SSS. Stop by and visit when you can. Who knows, you may get to read about a couple of soup tureens tomorrow!

I love those shams at French Farmhouse too! Terrific tureen! I can't believe you found it with the ladle!

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

You SCORED! That's a fantastic price, and with the spoon, even!

Hi Rondell,
What an awesome fine. I love finding ironstone at an amazing price. I am always amazed that people give it away...but of course I am quite grateful. That $99 runner must have been made from real zebra and who would want that? I love your post.

That's a fantastic tureen & at such an awesome price too! The zebra runner is lots of fun. Good thing you didn't pay $99.00 for it!

Every time I click on your blog and that white cabinet is there in your header I smile. Just love it. Great buy on the tureen. I got one at GW not too long ago for $3.00. Totally made my day! Have a great weekend!

Love your soup tureen. That was one of the first white pieces I found a few years ago. Still love it.

Good for you on finding the runner.

Hi Rondell..that looks great. My Mom bought me an old tureen last year. I love it. The solid white is nice in the sense you can use it all year round. I even decorated the inside of mine during the holidays. Cute runner too.

Beautiful white tureen! I love white dishes. I have just been successful at finding some white china dinner plates at a charity shop last week....see my latest blog post today! I would love to find a tureen like yours, too!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What a beautiful soup tureen! I would love to find something like that! I don't think my Goodwill is as good as it used to be! Do you think they have gone up in price? ♥
